Thanksgiving Games?

I've always been interested in putting together a Thanksgiving special but could never scrape up enough games. I'd think we'd need about six.

Anyway, one candidate is Pocahontas, which I inexplicably do not have a review posted for. I'll have to fix that.

Recently I've been played Backyard Sport Rookie Rush for the Nintendo DS. This football game would probably qualify.

Any other ideas? I think something with a parade, or food, might be apropos...

Weird timing - I was only wondering earlier if there were any games that could be considered Thanksgiving themed.

Off the top of my head the best I could do was South Park (N64/PS1). First levels feature killer turkeys as a main enemy - which IIRC was referenced from the Thanksgiving episode of the show. I’d only recommend it as a last resort option, though.

In South Park Rally all the stages were holiday themed. I think it had a Thanksgiving themed stage where you had to collect turkeys or something. It’s a better game IMHO but the connection is far looser as it’s only the one level.

I have thought about this for years!

South Park for N64 is sort of a Thanksgiving game. Many turkeys and fall themes :)

The Animal Crossing series has a few Thanksgiving related quests.

Originally, he's paranoid for exactly the holiday cannibalism related reasons you'd expect. Nintendo's since toned that down, but he remains as a cook...

This is a long shot but here goes. Streets of Rage 2. To power up the player must eat apples and turkeys. Or are they chickens? I never figured that out.

Disney's Magical Quest 3 (GBA and Super Famicom), has a Thanksgiving level and you even fight the boss turkey. I have the Super Famicom version, and it's really good.

I'm gonna say that they're turkeys. I mean, look at the size of them. They're just too big to be chickens. Unless those chickens happen to be genetically engineered or something like that... :)

Civilization is a Thanksgiving Game... you reviewed the Xbox 360 and DS version already (Civilization Revolution). The original is also available on the SNES.
