Everyone knows gamers who love to play online as a hobby, and many of them are dedicated to it with the sincerest enthusiasm. That can make an obvious choice for what gift you should give them, but without being a gamer yourself, it can sometimes be difficult to know what to get them. If your loved one has an Xbox One, you cannot go wrong by getting them an Xbox Live Gold card, which lets them play all their favorite online games.
What else could you get your favourite gamer? You could look at some of the hottest titles of the year and give them one of those. Some of those titles include:
- Star Wars Battlefront
- Fallout 4
- Call of Duty: Black Ops 3
- Rise of the Tomb Raider
- Star Wars Old Republic: Knights of the Fallen Empire
Before you ever go to buy a game for your loved one, always check to make sure that they do not already have the title. How can you learn this without letting them know your plan? Ask them what they play and some of the titles that they are looking forward to having. In a lot cases, however, we recommend an iTunes card instead because it lets them buy the game they want. Especially if they are a PC gamer, you could accidentally get them a game that they want to play but have inadequate hardware to play. When you give them a gift card, it is less concerning.
A lot of the time, you can also get gift cards for specific game stores. For example, you could give them a gift card for Steam or Origin. These are two of the most popular online game stores. Steam is well known to many gamers while Origin has become a popular choice because EA, a huge game publisher, will only release their games on Origin.
What else can you do to find the best video game gift for a loved one? One of the things that you could do would be to check the reviews for the games online. If you see a lot of negative surrounding the game, then you might be better off buying from a different game.
A free Google Play gift card would be another option for getting your loved one the gift they want. The advantage of this method is that it is more flexible than what you have with getting them an actual gift. For example, they can choose the gift they truly want as opposed to you having to read their mind and disappointing them. While that method is still better than giving them nothing at all, gift cards can be valuable with gamers. You can also find out what genre the person likes to play and buy them a game based on that, and normally, you will not go wrong. Some gamers are so passionate about the industry that they will be excited to play any title you find for them.
