Video game character advent calendar

If eagerly ripping up a piece of cardboard to reveal novelty-shaped chocolates isn't your idea of a good advent calendar, this may be more to your taste. Game-Addicts.com has been compiling an advent calendar featuring a different video game character every day in December, ranging from favourites like Guybrush Threepwood and the four-block-long Tetris piece to Samus Aran and Katamari Damacy's King of All Cosmos.

It's a labour of love worth reading to satisfy those nostalgia urges, although we can't help but imagine what Lara Croft-shaped novelty chocolates would look and taste like. Tomorrow's instalment is the last in the calendar, and we have a feeling it's going to be a good one.
