How to Buy the Perfect Video Game Gift

Bright Hub writes: "Gamers can be some of the most difficult people to buy for. For those unfamiliar with the various systems and their associated games, the wall at Gamestop can seem like an indecipherable mass of seemingly-identical titles, accessories, and merchandise.

Before we go further, I should state that this guide is not intended for gamers looking to buy for other gamers. Most gamers have some idea of the tastes of their friends and can select the most appropriate gift accordingly.

No, this guide is intended for the stressed-out moms, confused grandparents, and overwhelmed aunts and uncles who know that the person on their list is into games, but have no clue how to sort through the massive amount of titles, accessories, and merchandise to find the perfect gift."

That picture reminds me of one of the most awesome videos. :)

Shopping for gamers is crazy hard. Heck, when people ask me what I want as a gift, I can't even think of anything most of the time.

The problem is, most gamers buy whatever game they want when it comes out. They don't hold off.

I guess that is what makes gift certificates and such the perfect gift - even though they seem kinda boring.
