Shopping for your main guy is always a struggle. Anything that you think he would like he never does, and everything he likes you cannot imagine why. One thing that is true in all men: they love their video games. It is embedded in their DNA. They cannot help it. Rather than trying to train them to like other things (like the Style channel) it is best to just embrace this quality. Another bonus is if you can learn to enjoy playing along with them. Then, buying video games for them will seem like a gift to you as well.
So here is a list of games that your boyfriend will love and so will you!
Rock Band-Beatles Edition
This game has come out just in time for all the Beatles fans out there, and let’s face it, we are all Beatles fans. Firstly, guys love Rock Band. This is a fact. It can get a little annoying when they play night and day and you feel as if you will go crazy if you hear the same song being played over and over again, but admit it. When you actually step up to play, it is pretty fun. This game will be sure to win his heart and yours.
Resident Evil 5
This game has been out since March, but that does not make it any less of a great game. It is a fantastic multiplayer where your man can play the buff and hunky lead role, while you play the alluring female role. In this game there is plenty of blood and gore and a great story to keep him going. In this game it is also necessary for you to help each other out, and it will make you feel closer to each other. Even if you are not a huge violence fan, there is so much adventure that you will almost surely be captivated.
New Super Mario Bros. (Wii edition)
The Mario Bros. are a timeless classic that will never grow old. You are never too young or too old for this game as it appeals to every person of every gender and age group. This is the game that can be played over and over and never get boring. There will always be something new. And again, it is multiplayer. Your beau can be Mario and you can be Luigi (who is better anyways). It is just good clean fun that everyone can enjoy.
This has been one highly anticipated game. It stars the very talented Jack Black as the voice of the main character. It is about the main character getting caught in a world of heavy metal album covers having to fight off creatures with his guitar. You are probably thinking this sounds ridiculous, but trust me. Your guy will love it and think you are the coolest girlfriend ever if you act like you like it to. Hey, maybe after watching him play a little, you will start to like it.
Mentioning the game Punch Out will send fanboys into frenzy. They will reminisce about how they played it when it was originally on the Nintendo. Guys love this game. They adore it. So what better gift to give than this? Because it is so interactive with the Wii, it will be that much more fun. Trust me girls, you will also love getting in on the action in this boxing game. Plus, how good will it feel to gloat when you beat your boyfriend to a virtual pulp?
Wii Sports: Resort
Fact. Everyone loves Wii Sports. You do and your boyfriend does. When I first played, I remember it was the most fun I’d had in a very long time. So what is better than expanding the standard four games that come with the Wii into 12 fun packed games that require you to travel all over the world? Nothing is better than that. You and your boyfriend will have an almost illegal amount of fun playing this game.
Hopefully this will help you women out there figure out what to get your guys for Christmas. Not only will these games make them squeal like little girls, it will also provide you with a chance to play along and bond with your man without sacrificing your sanity.
