Yesterday might have been a rough day for online services, but maybe you got some game time in with your family and friends anyway. Whether you’ve been gathering around the TV since Anticipation on the NES or started more recently with Wii Sports, gaming has an important place in some family traditions.

Did you get your family together to don cat suits in Super Mario 3D World? Maybe you and your family locked and loaded for Call of Duty or Battlefield. There wasn’t any football on the television, so Madden could have been your digital diversion of choice.

Let us know if you made any new gaming memories with your family or friends during the holiday. If you’ve got a tale that isn't so contemporary you want to share, we’d be glad to hear that, too.
