It’s the most wonderful time of the year — though, for 2020, the best thing about this holiday season may be that the year is finally in the rear-view.

In the world of gaming, 2020 has been a big one. We’ve seen huge sales and engagement numbers across multiple platforms, some bizarre games becoming super popular thanks to lockdowns (hello Fall Guys, Genshin Impact, and Among Us), and the launch of a whole new generation of consoles, all amid a global pandemic.

Now, as we look at a shifted Black Friday and socially distanced holiday, you may be seeking ideas for what to get shipped to the video game players in your life. That’s where we come in.

Do you know an audiophile who must have the year’s top-of-the-line headset? We’ve got that. Maybe there’s an Xbox fanatic who would love to stare at a glowing Xbox globe light all day every day? Step right over here. Or perhaps there’s someone special who just wants to snuggle up with a giant Kirby plush pillow — we see you, snuggle away.

Whether silly or serious, inexpensive or pricey, or something in between, these gift guides have you covered from every angle. Dive in and enjoy, and remember that even though we’re in an unprecedently weird holiday season this year, what matters most is connecting — digitally or otherwise — with friends, family, and loved ones. Happy holidays!
