The Grumpy Gamer Wishes You All A Very Metal X-mas

To understand our resident crank's true holiday spirit, we need look no further than metal legend King Diamond.

When I watch those Christmas specials on TV, I always root for the crank - Scrooge, the Grinch, the Abominable Snowman, etc. At least until they crap out and turn into sheep, being all nice to people and buying everyone Christmas geese and presents with giant bows. For me, that's when these stories really take a "dark turn," when it turns out that the hilarious jerks aren't bad people after all, but just misunderstood and/or lonely.

Bah! Humbug! Some of us are just bona fide jerks and we like it that way. And the holiday season really allows us to express our misanthropy in truly creative ways. Like 80's Danish metal legend, King Diamond, a LeVeyan Satanist with a soaring vocal range, costumes that combine S&M gear with fancy little capes, and facepaint that would frighten even the most stalwart Juggalo.

With that in mind, here's a little musical montage, combining the most metal of X-mas songs with in-game footage of holiday events and seasonal themes.

Happy holidays, kids! Mua-ha-ha-ha!
