Parents Holiday Gaming Gift Guide

Are you the parent of a gamer – and have no idea what to get your kids this holiday season? Buying gifts for gamer kids doesn’t have to be difficult. We’ve got the perfect gift ideas no matter what video game console they use.

The Hottest Games This Year

Let’s talk about games.

Games should be compatible with the console (or PC) they have. If you aren’t sure, ask the gamer in your life, or check under System Settings for more information on what their computer has going on under the hood.

Consider games they’re already playing or titles they’ve talked about. It should give you a clearer idea of the type of game or genre that’s the best fit for them.

Start with these 5 hottest games of the year.


1. Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order

Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order is one of the most popular games in 2020, and with good reason. It’s action-packed, though meant for an older crowd of gamer kids (16+) rather than younger players.

If they’re a natural fan of the Star Wars series (and they don’t have this one in their collection yet), get it!

2. Minecraft

Minecraft is a world simulation game that allows players to mine, create, and craft the world around them. The game takes place online, and while most of it is rated PG, the player can easily run into other players who don’t keep their game clean.

Not sure if it’s suitable? Type Minecraft into YouTube and view some gameplay videos first.

3. Sid Meier’s Civilization VI Platinum

Sid Meier’s Civilization is a world simulation game that allows players to create and manage an entire world. If you remember Sims, imagine a version where the world is much (and much) larger. Aspects like warfare are integral to the game, however, the game isn’t overly violent for any younger gamers.

4. Horizon Zero Dawn

Horizon Zero Dawn is high-rated and highly acclaimed, although is certainly meant to be played by an older (16+) gamer crowd used to the action of first-person shooters. It’s not for young kids, but it’s still an excellent game.

5. Roblox Gift Card (2, 000 Robux)

Did you know that an estimated half of children in the United States have played Roblox? If you didn’t, then you should take a closer look at this game for yourself. It functions much like Minecraft, but with a game building aspect that allows users to create other games. The game functions with buying Robux: parents beware, or purchase vouchers like these.

Is it kid-friendly?

Some people vote yes, others vote no. View gameplay of the game on YouTube and judge for yourself.
