That's odd, but there seems to be more Halloween themed games than Christmas ones.

Was this an event from the Dreamcast online feature?

Because I don't recall anything like that on any of the ports of SA1... I never got to experience it on its home system.

>Was this an event from the Dreamcast online feature?
Yes. You just had to hit the "online" button thingy on SA1's main menu, which launched a browser, and opened the SA1 dedicated website. From there, you could download some random stuff straight to your VMU.
The servers died but the VMU files live on, grab El Bucanero's VMU Backup CD - it's on there.

I really like how the amount of gifts you collect is to be delivered in the gift drop minigame.

Shenmue does such a great job easing you through November into December slowly showing more Christmas themes and weather changes. As the story is unfolding around Christmas it really isn't a Christmas story at all. So it makes the environment seem larger with other things happening that are not essential to Ryus story.

Used to love Jetpack, and the christmas one was just as fun. Only instead of getting yourself killed you get santa killed... And for some reason he's collecting presents instead of delivering them

Not Christmas related but, uh, it got snow. And lots of trees. I like playing this during the winter.

That's weird. Must be an older version.

I have the latest version of Jetpack (circa 1998) and in this one, Santa leaves presents at trees.

Jetpack Christmas Special can still be found on shareware sites and stuff, right?

I have Jetpack 1.5 and the Jetpack Beta, so I might as well complete the collection.
