Scott Steinberger of digitaltrends. com writes, "It's a common problem faced by shoppers every holiday season: What to get the videogame enthusiast in your family? Worries are especially poignant this year, with concerns over violence and graphic content recently putting the industry in both parents' and journalists' crosshairs. Considering that average game player is now 33 years old according to the Entertainment Software Association, you're probably on the hunt for one or two titles yourself to boot."
"Thankfully, we're pleased to report that picking the perfect geek-friendly gift needn't prove a problem come that one special day or eight crazy nights. Courtesy of a booming $14 USD billion videogame industry, manufacturers are quickly capitalizing on concepts like casual gaming (user-friendly titles based on familiar everyday themes) and licensed film/TV tie-ins, pumping out top-quality content at record rates. In short, no matter your budget or system of choice, there are plenty of great options for every age group and interest type."
