The holiday season is fast approaching and many of us girls are coming up short on what to get our XBOX loving boyfriends. They’ve got all the best wireless accessories; headset, controllers, guitars, and network adapter. They visit the local game store often and pick up what game deals they can. It seemingly appears they have it all, but with the availability of video game titles on the market ever expanding, there is sure to be something new coming up that he is pining for.
You don’t have to be a gamer girl yourself to get the hottest new game for your boyfriend. You must simply know how to keep in the know on what’s soon to be released and when. Try a quick search online for new video game releases. Read through the descriptions and price tags, and decide for yourself what to get your man. I’ve compiled a selection of six games to consider below for the 2009 holiday season for the XBOX gamer. Get your game on for your man, and he will definitely be impressed!
Left 4 Dead 2
This is the sequel to another fantastic zombie thriller game. The characters battle their way through a post apocalyptic United States. Fighting their way through hordes of the living dead to extraction points and safe houses. Each characters’ personal story will be revealed along the way through in game dialogue. This is sure to be a gory game with many jumpy moments. Great for the casual or die hard gamer. Just make sure he isn’t too squeamish!
GTAIV (Grand Theft Auto 4) The Ballad of Gay Tony
This game may seem a bit melodramatic, but it’s rather, another addition to a legacy of great games. This is the first decent and serious presentation of a homosexual character in a video game. However, that is not the crux of the game, just the lifestyle of the main character. Play in a realistic gaming environment, parachuting from helicopters, participating in the ritzy night life, and discovering who’s real in the dog eat dog world of Liberty City. Great in-depth gaming that will not be completed in one night of game play. Ample amount of violence, sex, and drugs, so keep this in mind if your gamer doesn’t swing that way.
Forza Motorsport 3
Yet another sequel game, but for the adrenaline junkie. This video game title is great for any age gamer at any skill level. It’s all about fast and shiny. Outfit your own custom vehicles then take them out for a spin. Boasts the most realistic racing graphics of any game to date. Ultra realistic gaming experience, with artificial intelligence that calculates damage, weather and other factors that influence your car’s performance. Fantastic and fun game!
Here’s a great game for the role playing game (RPG) lovers. Carry out missions as a spy, customize weapons, and unravel an intriguing storyline. So cinematic, you’ll feel like you’re in your own spy movie. Offers so much customization, the game plays out differently every time, which significantly increases the replay value. Meaning your gamer will keep this one on the shelf for awhile and keep coming back to it to play again and again!
Here’s an unusually funny video game title that begged to be added to the list. Back in the day when hair bands ruled the earth, your character struggles his way through life. He wields a guitar and an axe as his trusty weapons against famous foes. You’ll recognize popular music and guest appearances by Ozzy, Rob Halford, Lita Ford and even Tim Curry! Destined to host the most popular video game sound track of this year, this game will surely have any gamer captivated and hysterical.
A fast paced role playing game (RPG) with beautiful hand drawn graphic appearance. Similar to Fallout 3 and Mass Effect, so if your gamer enjoyed either of those games, he will definitely love this one. It seems to have adrenaline burned onto the disc as well! The game play is fast and action packed. Great for the gamer who is a fan of heart pumping adventure games.
