Well, it's that time of year again, the holiday season, where we all take a minute to sit back and think of what it's really all about: presents! But with so many different games, DVDs, and toys all coming out at the same time -- and with the launch of the PS3 and Wii -- how can you know what goodies are really worth railroading your spouse, parent, loved one, grandma into buying for you?
As civic minded as we are here at IGN, we've decided to step in and help you sift through the massive list of holiday releases by offering up a buying guide that details our picks for the season ahead. We've compiled a list of top games for each platform and have thrown in a bunch of DVDs, toys, and gear for good measure. And even if you don't own one of the game systems, be sure to check out every list as there are plenty of multiplatform games to go around.
