Top-Selling Video Games Great for the Holidays

It’s December time again. That means the holidays are just around the corner. If you’re looking for video games to play, or want a gift suggestion for a loved one, then here’s my selection of the top-selling video games that will entertain you throughout the holidays.


Top-Selling Video Games Great for the Holidays


Guardians of the Galaxy

The first thing that came to mind when I saw this game was space travel, lasers firing everywhere, fistfights, amazing superpowers, and music from the 80s and 90s eras. What you get is exactly that, but so much more.

You play as Star-Lord and control the rest of the team by telling them what to do. You travel around the universe on missions and side-quests to ultimately save the galaxy. The gaming mechanics remind me of Final Fantasy 7 Remake, especially the combat, and the choice of dialogue options similar to Mass Effect. So with this one, expect great fast-paced action, hilarious bantering during combat, and dramatic scenes.

Great graphics overall. Good gaming mechanics and gameplay. Great choice of music selection. Not to mention the bantering during combat. This game is a must for all fans of the franchise. I enjoyed playing this game. I highly recommend it. It’s a good console game. You’ll feel like the Star-Lord himself, shooting guns blazing, seeing your team’s power as they explode on the screen.

Looking for a different adventure mixed with action, fantasy, magic, and challenging monsters? Then let me introduce to you Tales of Arise, an action JRPG that takes you into a cartoonish-fantasy world filled with exotic locations, a decent story, great combat gameplay, and amazing graphics. 

You start off with Alphen, a slave who acts as a protector at a mine with no memory of his past life, and bumps into Shionne, a mysterious woman with dangerous powers. They band together with a resistance group fighting lords to gain special artifacts. Along the way, they meet six other powerful characters with unique strengths and abilities who ultimately save the world from a corrupt race of evil supervillains.

The graphics look gorgeous with excellent gameplay, especially during combat. There’s a vast amount of side quests from the main story to get level up your characters. You’re looking at over 50 hours of gaming including post-gaming after the main story. 

Ultimately, this is a fun action JRPG. I am happy to say that if you’re an RPG fan, then this one’s for you. I most definitely recommend it. Check out the gameplay footage above and click the button to see the latest price offer.
