Reader Discussion: A Season For Games?

by Joe Juba on May 27, 2013 at 10:05 AM

For many, Memorial Day is a signal that summer has arrived. That means breaking out the grill, lawnmower, and playing games when you aren't out enjoying the weather. Some things just go better at different times of year; certain movies, books, and food are best enjoyed during particular seasons. Does the same rule apply to games?

On some level, a great game is a great game no matter when you play it. But are certain times of year better for certain games? Is the winter best suited to the snow-covered peaks of Skyrim? Is summer the best time to take a vacation to Italy in Assassin's Creed II?

What games do you play at particular times of year? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
