With the holidays just weeks away, it’s time to start thinking about what gift to get your favourite gamer.

If you don’t play games, it can be incredibly difficult to know what to buy someone who does. However, if you know what platform they prefer to use, then this can be easier than you think.

ALL MAJOR PLATFORMS

Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla

Assassin’s Creed is a very popular video game series that many adore. Despite beautiful visuals and great characters, previous games released tended to feel disconnected and arbitrary, but Valhalla is different.

Valhalla continues telling a story about Vikings in England similar to Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, but it is more cohesive.

Minecraft Dungeons

Minecraft games have been extremely popular from the beginning, and it’s hard to go wrong with them as gifts.

Minecraft Dungeons has been updated over time, with new areas and the addition of cross-platform multiplayer access, the game is entertaining for all.

This game is simple, with PG-level violence – the perfect choice for families.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

Reviews are unanimous that this latest CODBLOPS is the game that everyone will be playing this upcoming year.

This gritty military game is a must-have for gamers this Christmas.

Cyberpunk 2077

Cyberpunk 2077 is a futuristic role-playing game (RPG) that isn’t released just yet but is one of the most anticipated games of 2020.

Any gamer will be happy with this game for Christmas.

PS4 AND PS5

Spider-Man: Miles Morales

This game is a semi-sequel to one released in 2018 but smaller scale. Despite being a smaller scale, this game is set to have a diverse set of characters and feel authentic to New York City.

As an added bonus, you will get the remastered 2018 game for free if you buy this game for PS5.

If you really want to get a lot for your money, this is probably the best choice.

Demon’s Souls

This is a next-generation game that is a remake of an earlier PS3 game. While some reviews suggest that this game also feels like it is a PS3 game, others believe this is one of the best games out right now.

If your gift receiver liked paying games such as Dark Souls, Bloodborne, and Sekiro then you can rest assured they will like this one.

Ghost of Tsushima

Ghost of Tsushima is the perfect game for those who enjoy samurai and ninja action.

This game is incredibly beautiful, though the plot and characters aren’t the deepest.

13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim

This is a highly addictive game that is perfect for gamers that love adventure games, visual novels and action games all wrapped together.

The game has a labyrinthine story that progresses through 13 narratives simultaneously in a mind-boggling, sci-fi game that will be compelling and challenging to any gamer.

XBOX ONE AND SERIES X

Yakuza: Like a Dragon

The Yakuza series is beloved in the gaming community; gamers love the character-driven adventures following Japanese gangsters through the streets of fictional Tokyo.

This game adds a new protagonist and utilises a turn-based combat system that many gamers are saying make this game the best in the series.

Ori and the Will of the Wisps

This game is a sequel to Ori and the Blind Forest, where beautiful art is combined with smooth framerates to look even better than before.

While the cute art style may make you think this game is easy, it requires serious dexterity to complete the game.

Halo: Infinite

Many gamers are scared of this soon-to-be-released game will not live up to the previous games released. The delay of the release to early 2021 has not done anything to ease these fears.

That being said, most gamers would be over the moon if they received the pre-order for Halo: Infinite for Christmas this year.
