DISCUSSION

Wanna know about the best "gift guide"?

Know the person you want to gift to, check a FULL LIST OF RELEASES in the past year/years, then discard those games that he/she surely will not like.

Buy one that you know he/she will like, doesn't already own, and you can pay for.

Seriously, these lists you and any other site might have made are simply picks based on what *you* think is good to gift.

There are surely some people out there that will not like any of these picks.
