Holiday Geek Gift Guide – Video Games

Today we have a list of some of the best games of 2007. I tried to keep each game an exclusive for the console it works on. I included a Playstation 2 game in this guide since it is still going fairly strong.

For the Playstation 2 owner, God of War 2. A hugely successful game that got some of the best reviews ever for Playstation 2 games.

For the Nintendo DS owner there is the Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass. The game is still fairly new but has recieved rave reviews from almost everywhere I’ve read.

For the PSP fan I chose Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters. This is the first of two Ratchet & Clank games in this guide, mostly because they seem to be the only good titles for the newer Sony consoles, hopefully that will change next year.

The PC gamer has it a little bit tougher then the console gamer. Crysis is an incredibly intense game that will cripple all but the fastest PCs out there. Even though this game takes some pretty tough specs to run well it is still a very well done game that both looks gorgeous and is very fun to play.

The XBox 360 has a little game called Halo 3. All you really have to know is that Halo 3 had the largest entertainment release in history.

It seems that the only games that do well on Nintendo consoles are the Nintendo games. This year isn’t any different with Super Mario Galaxy being one of the most anticipated games for the Nintendo Wii. (Not to mention that it is one of the first games made exclusively for the Wii, not just a game originally developed for the Gamecube, then ported to the Wii).

For the Playstation 3 we have the second Ratchet & Clank game fo this guide, Ratchet & Clank: Tools of Destruction. This is the game that makes ME want to buy a PS3. (I love Ratchet & Clank games).

I hope you enjoy the gaming this holiday season.

  1. @tm Guitar Hero 3 is a great game, but in the first paragraph I said that I tried to keep all of the games exclusives, Guitar Hero 3 is available for multiple consoles which means it isn’t an exclusive. I wanted to pick one game for each console, if I picked something that wasn’t an exclusive it would be like picking two games instead of just one.
