By Amina Martha / December 24, 2019 | 8:30 am




Are you a person who just loves video games or do you know someone who does? If you aren’t up on whatever the latest and greatest video games are it can feel tricky to find the right gift for the video players in your life.

Shopping for presents is hard. When it comes to gamers, a new gadget is usually a safe bet, but if you’re looking to switch it up this year and get a gaming-related gift, we’re here to help

It’s often thought behind every gift that counts most, it helps to make an informed decision so that it doesn’t look like you picked up something random.

Here are some of the best video games you can buy as a gift for your loved ones or just friends in your circle:

SEKIRO: SHADOWS DIE TWICE

If you’re a glutton for challenging games, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice hangs with the likes of Dark Souls, as it comes from the same developer. Set in feudal Japan, this game puts even more of a focus on reflex-based fights and vertical gameplay

THE LEGEND OF ZELDA: LINK’S AWAKENING

Link’s Awakening on the Switch is a great remake of the Game Boy classic. The new graphics make it seem like you’re playing with tiny toy figurines, and the game’s world, puzzles, and dungeons are just as fun to explore as they were in 1993.

NINTENDO SWITCH

Nintendo’s portable console has only gotten better in the last year, with great new games like Super Mario Maker 2Fire Emblem: Three Houses, the Link’s Awakening remake, and, of course, Pokémon Sword and Shield. Playable both on the go and a big screen and now featuring even better battery life than the original model, the Switch is still a no-brainer.

PDP FACEOFF DELUXE+ SWITCH CONTROLLER

PDP’s wired Switch controller plugs into your dock and enables some things that aren’t possible with Nintendo’s own Pro controller. You can plug in headphones for private listening and voice chat in supported games

SUPER MARIO MAKER 2

Make the Mario level of your dreams (or nightmares) with Super Mario Maker 2. This sequel to the Wii U original comes with tons of new level-making options, a Super Mario 3D World level theme, a story mode, and competitive online multiplayer

JUDGMENT

Yagami is a disgraced lawyer-turned-private detective in the fictional Kamurocho district of Tokyo. Aside from handling other small cases for people around town, he gets pulled into a larger case involving warring Yakuza clans, corrupt police and government officials, and corporate espionage, which all ties into the case that caused him to stop being a lawyer

SEGA GENESIS MINI

Whether you had a Sega Genesis growing up or not, this mini version of the console is a great idea for any gamer. It is everything you expect from a tiny retro console: it has a great library of 42 games and modern save functionality, with lots of great small details like menu music, moving bits of hardware, and access to games from multiple regions.

OCULUS QUEST

The Oculus Quest hits a sweet spot of power and convenience for virtual reality headsets, offering room-scale tracking and full-fledged hand controllers in a self-contained, user-friendly package. It’s especially good paired with Beat Saber, a kinetic rhythm game played with virtual lightsabres, which is one of the best experiences VR has to offer

STEELSERIES ARCTIS 1 WIRELESS

Getting your wireless headphones to work with the Nintendo Switch is usually a nightmare, but it’s a problem that SteelSeries’ Arctis 1 Wireless solves. It includes a headset that’s pre-paired with its handy USB-C adapter, which means you’ll be experiencing seamless, lag-free audio in no time
