Hoilday season gaming period starts basically at the end of the month when basically a brand new hot release is released every week starting from mid-end of august to december. So what is your big list of games you are going to buy out of all these hot releases, maybe we can see what the gamrconnect community are going to be buying day 1 on mass.
My list of games are:
Deus Ex Human Revelution
Bodycount (Maybe, depends)
Red Orcestra 2 Heroes of Stalingrad (love ww2 online games)
Modern Warfare 3 (i wont be buying this, but sucker brothers will be wasting there money)
Saints Row 3
There will be more, like most likely 10-20 steam sales games and i am sure i am missing an array of titles.
edit: How could i forget Uncharted 3, i have been hyped for this for 2 years and i forget :D, also as i go though the list i start remember games on my confirmed list.
Of Course That's Just My Opinion, I Could Be Wrong
