Yes Santa Clause is garbage had taken place in 2019, Anemone might have offered a failed video game, as, for example, Fort Boyard on console. Fortunately, you are not in Santa Clause is garbage. And you can make a better choice. Here is our guide.
These are not the least known, but they are sure values. Pokémon Sword & Shield (Switch) are the latest episodes as of the famous series of little monsters to capture, and are always so captivating. We will also recommend the delicious Luigi's Mansion 3, tribute to Ghostbusters and Scooby-Doo, alive, cute and playable for two, for shared moments. Super Mario Maker 2 (Switch) is the game to put in the hands of the smart guys who want to learn video game creation, create crazy, funny or sadistic levels, or just mumuse with software that knows how to be both fun , friendly and accessible.
For adrenaline junkies
Jedi Star Wars: Fallen Order (PC, PS4, XBO), whose action takes place between Episodes III and IV, draws in what has been best in action in recent years (Uncharted, Dark Souls) to offer a fun and intense experience. In a more experimental kind, we will advise Control (PC, PS4, XBO), action game to the cold minimalist universe, with exhilarating telekinetic powers. The absolute reference this year is however Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice (PC, PS4, XBO), fearsome fighting and adventure game in a fascinating medieval fantasy world, but forgiving no mistakes.
In simulation, the top of the gratin has a name: NBA 2K20. Rich, immersive and beautiful, the 2K Games basketball game has no equivalent. To satisfy the footeux, the choice is more delicate, since it is necessary to choose between the excellent PES 2020 (PS4, XBO), realistic, creative and fun to play, and a FIFA 20 (PS4, Switch, XBO) getting older, but still by far the best selling game (and asked). But the best sports game of the year is What the Golf? (PC, iOS), a hilarious parody of both golf and video games.
For lovers of thrills
Play the classicism card by offering Resident Evil 2 (PC, PS4, XBO), unmistakable remake of one of the best tributes to the cinema of Romero. Or, more original, slide under the tree A Plague Tale: Innocence (PC, PS4, XBO), a thrilling French thriller in a medieval Southwest invaded by hordes of killer rats, critical success and international commercial.
For thirsty escape
Experience to discover, that of Death Stranding (PS4), haunting ride in Icelandic landscapes haunted, rhythmic perched kinematics and supported by an ethereal soundtrack. In addition to soothing, we will advise Shenmue III (PC, PS4, XBO) to anyone who likes to immerse themselves in the everyday life of a different country – here, a Chinese village of the 1980s, on a background of kung fu history. If Secret Santa has assigned you a Switch owner, do not hesitate to offer him The Witcher III or Dragon Quest XIlong role plays, Slavic, mysterious and disenchanted for the first, Japanese, colorful and solar for the second.
For the big nostalgic
If the person brought to unpack the gift grew up in the 1980s or 1990s, she would have to pour out her little larmichette while discovering The Legend of Zelda: A Link's Awakening (Switch), cheesy remake of the classic GameBoy; the return of the racing game Team Racing Crash: Nitro-Fueled (PlayStation 4, Xbox One) and its wacky cartoonesque universe deliciously handed over to the standards of the day; or simply the great Mega Drive Mini, a mini-console tribute to the golden age of Sega and its Sonic hedgehog.
For the planet (and the zygomatic)
More and more players are showing their environmental concerns, and designers too. It will be difficult to be greener than the very friendly Micro Mages (NES), platform game four, which turns on a 1980s console, or role play What Remains (NES, PC), available on recycled cartridges (unfortunately exhausted) or download. On recent consoles, we recommend the hilarious French game Heave Ho (Switch), energy efficient and thought to be shared.
In wholesale, the offer is limited. The PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One have a huge catalog and attractive prices, but they are rather end of life: their replacements will arrive in a year. If, despite everything, you decide to take the plunge, prefer the PlayStation 4 for cinematic experiences, and the Xbox One for car simulations.
More recent, the Switch combines many qualities: an incredibly rich catalog of Nintendo exclusives and unwanted beads, a flexible hybrid concept, convenient and user-friendly, and now a 100% nomadic variation, the Switch Lite. Attention, however, his controllers are very expensive and unreliable.
However, these are not the only possibilities. Produced locally in Saint-Etienne, energy efficient, and thought with the mind “Do it yourself” (You can develop your own games), the small GameBuino console ticks all the boxes of the original and recommendable gift.
