Last-minute ideas for the gamers
Living with a gamer when you’re not one yourself can be a real pain at the best of times, but especially at Christmas.
And while 2021 has been a mixed bag – thanks to Covid – there’s still been some cracking games released.
If you’re looking for some last minute gaming ideas, try these... Disco Elysium – The Final Cut In this cult RPG you play a detective with a unique skill set, and a whole city block to carve your path across. Interrogate unforgettable characters, crack murders, or take bribes, you can decide to be a hero or become scum of the Earth.
The title’s unique game mechanics create a fully realised world begging to be explored. Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart If your gamer is lucky enough to own a PS5, then this is a title they should be playing on it.
A direct sequel to 2016’s Ratchet and Clank, this Playstation exclusive is stunning, the cartoon environments so beautifully realised they’re almost tangible on the screen.
Back 4 Blood
If your older gamer likes a bit of grit and gore on their console, then this could be the game for them.
This online multiplayer survival horror is the spiritual successor to the Left 4 Dead series, as it’s developed by the same people and carries across several gameplay themes.
Back 4 Blood’s primary game sees you join a four-person team of post-apocalypse survivors, known as‘cleaners’, who battle their way through maps filled with zombie like creatures called The Ridden.
