We don't mean to alarm you, but it's already December. Mental. Still, the last month of the year tends to offer up some prime gaming time, what with holidays and nights where it's far too cold to think about going out and socialising. As such, we want to know what your plans are this year. 

We all have different habits: some of us use the time to clear out the old backlog, while others take advantage of sales and pick up a big role-playing game to really get stuck into. With the PlayStation 4 now in the fourth year of its life, its library is bursting with variety -- there's something for everyone.

Let us know what kind of games you plan on playing in our poll, and then lay down your plans in the comments section below.
