Give them the gift of Nintendo, the gift that keeps on giving.

"Sonic Boom was awesome. I want Sonic Boom." That felt way more like a Codec message from the Colonel at the end of MGS2 than it probably should have.

A piece of advice: before buying a game for a nephew and/or niece ask their parents if Santa is planning to bring them whichever game you're planning to buy them, so as to avoid them receiving the same game twice.

Although I am a grown man, I am often called immature by my peers ("Why are you reading comics, [NAME REDACTED]? Those are for kids.) I'm probably not a real adult because I play with action figures and read comics.


Because of these traits, I would like to suggest another game that I think is perfect for kids. Pokemon Alpha Sapphire. The original Ruby version was the first Pokemon that I ever played (when I was a kid), and it is one of my favorite games ever.

"Sonic Boom is awesome." This is why you don't as young kids for opinions. Would have been nice if sonic boom was awesome.

To save time, they are:

1) Mario Kart 8

2) Super Smash Bros.

3) Skylanders Trap Team

4) Disney Infinity 2.0

5) Lego Batman 3


This is really sad presentation by Gamespot...the whole article isn't written by one of your journalists...rather its an advertisement presented by Best Buy.

@Suaron_x Actually, these were kids of ours (GameSpot Staff). Mine was the girl in pink who asks for both Mario Kart and Smash. So, no, no "script."
