This holiday season is a fantastic time to get the gamer in your life what they want the most. Whether it’d be the new “Call of Duty” or just a PlayStation Plus subscription card, there is never a better time to gift in gaming. This Christmas, you have to look at all the new titles that have come out over the course of the fall and winter.
To start, let’s look at consoles. If you haven’t already shopped on this past week’s Black Friday, there’s still time to hop on those sweet holiday deals. For Xbox shoppers, I couldn’t talk about the holidays without Microsoft’s insanely good deal for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which now is available to buy for $1 for the first three months. Game Pass Ultimate includes over 100 games, headlined by “Gears 5” and “Halo: The Master Chief Collection,” as well as three months of Xbox Live Gold. You can get an Xbox One S 1 TB All-Digital Edition on Amazon today, which can be modified to include a game such as “NBA 2K20”, or “Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.” You can purchase this bundle at a low price of only $149.99 thanks to the Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals.
For PlayStation shoppers, you can pick up a nice stocking stuffer in a PlayStation Plus card, or a currency card for your favorite gamer out there. You can also get a sweet deal on a PlayStation 4 Slim 1 TB Console for $269.99 on Amazon. Like Xbox, you can pick up the new “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare,” as Captain Price returns in a brand-new story campaign, new multiplayer maps and special-ops missions.
Not only is there “Call of Duty,” there are several other fantastic titles and accessories that would fit perfectly under the tree. Two titles perfect for gamers of all ages are “Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fueled” and “Spyro Reignited Trilogy,” which is a remastered series of the older “Spyro” games. Whether it will be the first time playing the games ever or the first in two decades, it’ll bring fun for the whole family.
Next to your favorite purple dragon, I definitely have to recommend “Overwatch” and all of their many series of Hasbro and LEGO figurines, as well as apparel selections across Blizzard Entertainment’s websites and partners. Many hoodies and figurines are available to show off your favorite “Overwatch” hero.
Next up is one of my personal favorites, “Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.” This fan-favorite, brought to life by the creators of “Dark Souls” and “Bloodborne,” delves into life during feudal Japan, having players deal with many monsters and enemies as you traverse the villages and lands across the Japanese province. “Sekiro” is another incredible game made by the “Souls” creators.
Another franchise that is a must-buy goes to “Super Smash Bros Ultimate” for the Nintendo Switch. Almost a year after its release, “Ultimate” is the Smash Bros franchise’s biggest game yet. With the most recent character release being Terry Bogard of the “Fatal Fury” series, they’re not done yet. “Super Smash Bros Ultimate” can be found at any of your local electronic retailers, as well as the Nintendo Switch base console and the newly made Nintendo Switch Lite.
To speak about games is one thing, but to play them without accessories is another. For Xbox and PlayStation players, SCUF Gaming is the perfect place to get all your controller needs, and to play like the E-Sports pros. Razer is also the go to for all of your holiday PC needs, if consoles are not your thing. Like SCUF, Razer focuses on making your gaming experience the best possible, with many chroma keyboards, mouses and so much more.
No matter what your gamer wants this holiday season, this is the ultimate gift guide you can’t miss.
