Holday Gamer Buy Guide


Ah yes...the holiday season. Every year it's the same. Too little money and too many games. Some will fall by the wayside, while others must be played.

The amount of games coming out in time for Christmas this year is overwhelming to say the least, so it may be difficult for many of us to decide which games to buy.Of course not all of us like the same games, so that might make it a bit simpler to choose.(One would think.)

Here's a breakdown of  the types of gamers who'll be buying this year, and what games (or consoles) would best suit them.

If any of the below describes you, then this is what I would recommend.


The Casual Gamer / Borderline Gamer

"I don't have time to play games. I'm too busy working and I'm always on the move. Occasionally I get a chance to relax, so if I decide to play games, I'll play something that doesn't take up too much of my time. Also, I get bored easily, so give me games in 5 minute or 10 minute intervals and I'll be happy."

The Role Playing Game Wannabe Hero

"I like progression in my characters development, open environments, and well-rounded characters. The longest games are always the best. Give me options. Give me choice. I love my Fantasy games, but a little bit of Fallout or Mass Effect never hurt anyone. Sleep...what is that? I don't need it!!"

The First Person Shooter Veteran

"I'm ready for any war, and I've been in all of them. I'll enlist in any army and I'm ready to take on anyone. My dogtags are there for the taking if you can get close enough Mo@#%^&^er!! If there's a game where I can pull off a headshot....I'm there!!."
