Christmas is coming up fast and you might still be unsure about what to get the people you love this year. Well if you were planning to get them some video games, this list is just for you! Here are 10 video games / consoles that I personally think would make great Christmas gifts.
Aaahhh shooters, there’s no getting around them and considering that these two series are the most popular ones, I’m sure any shooter fan will be happy to receive either one of these.

LEGO continues to deliver amazingly cute and funny games for the whole family with LEGO Marvel Super Heroes. This game features an original story crossing all the Marvel families.

I don’t care what anyone else says, Batman: Arkham Origins is a great game that any DC comic fans should play. While it might not be as great as Arkham City, this latest Batman game still features a great storyline worth experiencing.
Available on: PC / PS3 / Xbox 360 / Wii U
I’ve got the be honest, I still haven’t played Assassin’s Creed 3, but this one looks so amazing that I kinda feel like skipping the third one to play the fourth already. I mean there’s pirates, tropical islands and naval combat! What’s not to love?
Available on: PC / PS3 / PS4 / PSVita / Xbox 360 / Xbox One / Wii U
I don’t know what it is about the Pokémon games that just makes them interesting even after all these years. Sure the formula doesn’t change that much, but these versions introduce new graphics and new 3D battles which is enough to make us want to play these new versions.
Available on: Nintendo 3DS
Mario is a classic that you can’t go wrong with. In this all new 3D platformer for the Wii U, players can take the role of Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, or Toad, each with their own special skills-in the all-new Sprixie Kingdom. Freely roam the world map and each sprawling stage alone or team up with friends to find hidden stars while competing to take the crown for most coins and points found!
Available on: Wii U
While this game might have been release earlier in the year, it is still an amazing game to get for those who haven’t played it yet. The Last of Us is a third-person Survival-Action game and PlayStation 3 exclusive featuring a unique character action driven storyline focused on the unlikely pairing of a young girl and a hardened scavenger in a post-apocalyptic gameworld.
Available on: PS3
The latest game in the Legend of Zelda series was just release at the end of November and it will be a great game to add to any gamer’s collection. Link Between Worlds takes place in the same world of the SNES classic The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. In this newly spun tale, Link transforms into a living painting to cross into a dark, parallel dimension mirroring Hyrule.
Available on: Nintendo 3DS
While it’s true that the games library for the PS4 and Xbox One might be lacking so far, I don’t think anyone would be oppose to getting a new console as a gift. At least with this, they will be ready for the new generation of games. As for the Wii U, you can easily find it bundle with either Super Mario Bros U or Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker, which are both great games so you can’t go wrong with either bundles.
That’s it for our video games list. Hopefully this will have help you in your decision about which gifts to get your loves one!
