This week, the Japanese gaming magazine Weekly Famitsu asked its readers the question: What would you give to someone as a Christmas gift? Here are some of the video game-related answers:
"For a friend, I'd like to get Borderlands 2. We could play co-op over New Years!"
-18 year-old male high school student
"I think Animal Crossing: New Leaf would be perfect as a gift for a friend who doesn't play video games very much, since it lets you play casually at your own pace. I want to enjoy the village life together. Plus the characters are so cute!"
-33 year-old female part-time worker
"I want to give the Resident Evil series! Playing together with a romantic partner would be more exciting than watching a horror movie."
-25 year-old self-employed male
"I think for this season, the Wii U is a no-brainer. It's just been released and now's the time when it'll be the hottest item."
-25 year-old male company worker
"The Nintendo 3DS is perfect since it has a lot of games with network play. It'd be a lot of fun to play with the person you give it to!"
-16 year-old male high school student
"My husband is a huge fan of the Yakuza series, so I'm sure he'd love it if I gave him Yakuza 5."
-40 year-old self-employed female.
"I'm giving my girlfriend a PlayStation 3, since she doesn't have one. Now's a good time since the price has dropped."
-36 year-old male company worker
"I'm giving a PlayStation network card to buy downloadable games with. The software lineup has gotten bigger and that way they can choose whatever they want."
-24 year-old male part-time worker
Regardless of what you get your friends and family, if you haven't picked out all your gifts and stocking stuffers yet, you'd better hurry up…
