This Funny Christmas Game Simulates the Challenges of Holiday Shopping

This holiday season, video game chain GAME released a comical Christmas game that simulates the best and worst of being in the mall during one of the busiest times of the year. The 'Christmas Shopper Simulator' is described as "an epic quest to do a bit of Christmas shopping, complete with all the disappointment, frustration and suspension of the laws of physics that you’d find in a real shopping center." This includes trying to navigate the confusing layout of the mall itself, bumping into other shoppers and knocking stacked displays over.

The free-to-download game is made in the same style as Goat Simulator, serving as a tongue-in-cheek way to comment about how shopping can cut into valuable time that could be spent playing your favorite video games.
