Tis the Christmas season (or Advent to be theologically accurate), and in the spirit of the season, the lovely blogger over at Later Levels has decided to celebrate the 12 Days of Christmas a few days earlier with 12 gaming related questions for all of us good, little gaming elves out there. These are my responses.
🎁 19 December 2017: You need to choose a gift for someone special and go online to check out the video game item catalogue. Who is this person and what present would you select for them?
If I had the money, I would buy all the games for all my gamer friends and family. I suppose this is a bit of a cheat with this question since I actually have acquired a video game for some, and conveniently enough it just arrived today (God bless you, Amazon). I bought my brother the new Assassin’s Creed (and I really hope he doesn’t read this post lol), because I’m having so much fun playing it, and I’m so super stoked that it takes place in Egypt, but isn’t whitewashed.
Speaking of AC: O, the whole reason your friendly neighborhood TSN wanted to play it was because I heard you could pet cats, and I was all about it. Hell, I’d play a game where the entire object was to pet all the cats.
Why are we not funding this? Seriously…can I get a kick starter? Sadly, I don’t know how to program, so I won’t be doing this myself, but someone, somewhere who can must think this is feasible. Me and my two BFFs would play the hell out of this game, and one of them isn’t even a gamer.
I hope this answers the questions satisfactorily. There are of course games I think everyone should play (e.g. Journey and Super Mario Odyssey), but it’s fun and a bit challenging to consider games geared towards particular people.
Um, so I reread the question and it seems as though I could interpret it to include more than just video games themselves, but also items associated with games. If that’s the case, I’d get LightningEllen all of the amiibo and probably the Lightning figurine from Theatrythm Final Fantasy. I’d get my husband one of those Destiny beer holders (though he doesn’t really drink that much, but he plays Destiny a lot).
What would you buy for whom with your unlimited Christmas bonus? I think I’ve covered all of my bases, but how would you cover yours? Sound off in the comments!
