A gamer’s guide to not going out this Christmas

It’s no exaggeration to say that 2020 will go down as a year to remember… for all the wrong reasons.

As the Covid crisis took hold, we dutifully followed the advice to stay at home, protect the NHS and save lives. And as the days turned to weeks, we turned to baking, box sets and our games consoles to relieve the tedium of lockdown life.

Indeed, for gamers, the year is ending on something of a high with the launch just last month of the new XBox Series X and, after a wait of seven long years, the arrival of Sony’s powerful new Playstation 5.

With restrictions still in place across the country, most of us will be spending more time at home in the coming months, which means that gaming is set to enjoy a bumper Christmas.

Aston spoke to Julia Hardy, TV presenter and video games expert to guide us through the maze and also about the must have games to own this Christmas and in 2021.
