I know that's assuming you picked any up -- I actually didn't, myself, but I have been playing a lot of games this Holiday season.
If you're the gamer in your friend group or family, you often get asked about the various games you play, be they video games, tabletop RPGs, board games -- I have lost track of the amount of times I've been asked to explain Catan to people -- and you're put in the position of serving as a sort of unofficial ambassador for the hobbies you participate in and enjoy.
I mean, straight up, transmog has made me love so, so many games — from World of Warcraft to Assassin's Creed Odyssey I enjoy playing dress up with my little POV character almost as much as getting a compelling story or satisfying gameplay loops.
My various Warriors absolutely want the Barbarian's Arsenal system from the Diablo 4 beta I played at BlizzCon 2019.

Sometimes, our favorite game company releases a game in a genre they've never explored before.
