Holiday gift for video game collectors and retro gamers

We’re already in the middle of the Christmas season and the typical questions we all ask ourselves: What can I give for Christmas? How can I get an original gift? What is the best thing to give to video game collectors and retro gamers?

Although we can’t help you with the right size for a sweater or the best-smelling perfume, we can give you some ideas for Christmas gifts that will make video game collectors very happy.

We live in a time where the offer of video games is huge and it can be overwhelming to choose just one, especially when making a gift for someone else, but there are some tricks to narrow down this search to a few options that you will always get right:

  • Physical vs. digital. It may seem a cliché, but if you have the chance to choose a physical game over its digital version, do it. It’s pure psychology: it’s always more exciting to find a gift under the Christmas tree with a name tag than to see nothing and have someone hand you a piece of paper with a download code or say ‘check your Steam library, you have a gift’.
  • Take reference from their tastes. The problem is you don’t know what genre the person you’re gifting might like best? Take a look at their digital library of games or their physical collection to take references, although there are some genres that are usually a sure hit, such as action, platformers or arcade for retro lovers.
  • Special Editions or Collector’s Editions. This is undoubtedly the best option to give as a gift. Whether it is a game that you already have on another platform, that you have already played or that you have not yet had the opportunity to try, a Special Edition or Collector’s Edition will always add an extra to your gift.

At Abylight we know firsthand what these editions mean to video game lovers (because we are too!), so we’re going to make you a couple of essential recommendations for you to get it right this year with a gift specially designed for:

  • Video game lovers
  • Fans of Special Editions
