*** The DS ''VideoGame/TheLegendaryStarfy'' game does basically the same thing. You turn on the game, and you get a cute "Happy Birthday" graphic with a cake before you go to the start menu.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/DungeonCrawl'', if you play on an online server during the Christmas season, Cocytus, the icy Hell, is renamed The North Pole, and Antaeus, the boss of the area, has his appearance change to a more festive look[[http://crawl.chaosforge.org/Antaeus]]. This does not make the area any less challenging.

* ''Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2004'' had "Real Time Events", challenges tied not just to a specific day but a specific ''date'' (such as December 8, 2003, the day of a full moon). Most of them rewarded the player with fairly generic equipment, but the Halloween and Thanksgiving events awarded holiday-themed clothing that couldn't be acquired elsewhere.

* ''VideoGame/{{Tyrian}}'' prompts you if you want to play with Holiday Mode on when you start the game during the month of December or through the YESXMAS command-line parameter. Many sprite graphics are replaced and instead of a computer voice saying "Good Luck" at the start of a level, a different voice says "Merry Christmas".

* ''VideoGame/TeamFortress'' had a party mode which could be activated by the server operator and gave all the characters party hats, changed grenades into gifts, and altered all the death announcements to fit the theme. ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' does the same thing, but sets it to automatically kick on to celebrate the week that the original game was released.
