Guinness World Records 2018: Gamer’s Edition - I actually helped write this year's version of the book, and think it's PERFECT for the gamer on your list!
South Park: The Fractured But Whole - Rated Mature
NOT An Xbox One X - It’s too expensive and you’re only buying it for the 4K option. The Xbox One S is a smarter purchase, if you really want an Xbox One.
I’m sitting here trying to come up with “What game would a gamer want for the holidays?” To be honest I was a little bit more selfish and my thought was “what game do I want for the holidays?”
I couldn’t think of a thing because the games I want, I already own. The ones I actually WANT won’t be out for another year or so. So I start looking thru numerous websites and gaming stores to find that perfect gift, but I just couldn’t.
That’s when I found the perfect gift: Plain ol’ simple Gaming gift cards. With PlayStation and Nintendo having store cards priced at $70 and Xbox with cards at $60 you don’t need to figure out what the person wants...just give it to ‘em and they’ll get what they want. Heck you can even go all in for a $100 card and that would cover season passes/DLC’s, if any.
I know a lot of people who will say “A gift card is so impersonal.” I do not know a single gamer that will look at a $60-$100 SONY/Nintendo/Xbox store card and say “well I really wanted *insert random game name here*, but i guess this will do.”
Seriously who wouldn’t like this you are literally handing them a ‘GET ANY GAME YOU WANT FREE’ card.
