15+ Video Game Gift Ideas for the Gamer on Your List!

I could easily go on and on about gaming gift ideas but I’ll spare you! Instead I’ll just highlight some gifts to consider. Be sure you know what gaming system your recipient owns (if any) and take ratings into consideration. I purposely left out games intended for adults only. These are more family orientated.

Xbox 360 Kinect

Angry Birds Trilogy

Dance Central 3

Rock Band 3

Just Dance 4

Zumba Fitness Core

Sesame Street: Once Upon A Monster

Kinect Sesame Street TV – This is pretty neat. It’s like watching the show but helping them do things on screen. Rissa gets a kick out of this!

Marvel Avengers: Battle For Earth

Xbox LIVE 12 Month Gold Membership

PlayStation 3 (PS3)

Nintendo Wii U Console – 32GB Black Deluxe Set

New Super Mario Bros. U

Skylanders Giants Starter Kit

Disney Princess: My Fairytale Adventure

Nintendo 3DS – Aqua Blue

Wreck-It Ralph

hotel translyvania
Hotel Transylvania 3DS – Based on the movie, it has all the main characters at the castle with plenty of side scrolling action where you solve puzzles and fight bosses. Probably ideal for ages 8-14. Can get repetitive but has nice graphics.

Transformers Prime: The Game

Disclosure: We received Hotel Transylvania, Just Dance 4, Disney Princess: My Fairytale Adventure, Zumba Fitness Core and Marvel Avengers: Battle For Earth to review. Affiliate links included in post.

A certain small person will be getting the Nintendo 3Ds this year. I think I might take over a bit when he's sleeping or at school.
