Tough to buy -- if you don't know a lot about games because we know that they are all different summer about war as we just -- others are about dancing others are little more classic in styles of Mario Brothers action.
So we're gonna go over to Blair -- -- correspondent of attack of the show and play G four TV.
Blair I'm wondering what you get for the -- in your life I actually haven't you in mind and I don't really know very much about video -- unsolicited marry your Brothers tetris spends so.
For the people out there like me what are some of your suggestions particularly -- holidays.
-- The good news is for -- -- like -- Super Mario three -- land is the new risks from iteration of that particular game franchise and it's absolutely fantastic.
So that would be my first recommendation on but more so anything else I would recommend is going outside and playing with your friends.
And giving your parent some time alone -- you really I ask anybody that has children.
The Super Mario three vlan right off the bad -- recommended especially if you're an old school -- like yourself who who is it may be familiar with a lot of the more modern things this is something that.
It's modernize the series but it still allows you to to really take a a nice warm back in the imminent stall -- that we all know and appreciate my.
Are -- five million -- involved in order for me to be able to play this game.
That's an audio and video games now you know I have -- -- of the data about -- -- may be and that's it and now to send their buttons on the front their bonds on the fact there's a joystick because every single way.
I I don't know maybe I'm just not quite enough that I can -- -- that.
Now did this is fine this is old school I guess said jump and run up and down but the fact you know the Contra coat I don't know what your personal it is likely -- -- a lot of time.
You my friend won't be single for long -- become one -- -- -- All right update -- and an occasion maybe next comment on.
I'm so what are your 564.
For games of the season.
Top -- games of the year number one right off the -- elder scrolls five sky -- Just a fantastic immersive.
Gigantic game I mean you talked with -- of the fact these games cost sixty dollars seventy dollars thereabouts to to buy.
This game offers hundreds.
Of hours of game play in contents so it really is the best value out there.
And really anybody can play it like I said before Super Mario 3-D land especially do you have children.
Or maybe you're trying to reintroduce somebody to to modern gaming -- introduced in the modern -- for the first time Super -- 3-D land is is a great give.
-- -- -- -- Absolutely fantastic even if you're not a comic book fan this is really one of the best games ever made -- you can really appreciate it in that respect.
If you have someone in your life to.
Isn't easily offended saints -- the third.
Is a fantastic game although -- -- one of the weapons in the game is a piece piece of sporting equipment spliced with a sex -- And you to do the math.
I want to let their -- cross to say about that one.
Yeah I mean there are a lot of government agencies represented -- -- for obvious reasons.
And I are flown enough under the radar to where people haven't got their hands and they're not violating Geneva convention at least that there weird when no they're not this is way different conversation what you guys are out.
And tell -- -- unchartered three.
And I sort of three is -- if your PlayStation 3 owner of PlayStation 3 exclusive.
And it's -- -- follow to unchartered two which was a lot of people's game game of the year couple years ago.
Is truly one of the most cinematic.
Games out there it's the only one -- my fiance actually sat on the couch.
Next to me and watched me play it for ten hours and didn't -- border -- yelled at me because my sweatpants smelled like crap I was actually impressed and it was just like a ten hour movie.
So that's simply something out there for for people that just -- experience game play but don't need to be to -- how difficult games are.
Okay telling people your fiance loves to play video game for ten hours my not inspire the women out there to wanna go -- and purchased this game.
But I digress let's just -- as you as you alluded I gotta say that I -- don't know she's a real person because I'm making her out.
You alluded to some of those -- may not be great for kids so you have a separate list for them.
Now you're number one game is actually -- -- have -- and I love and there are no -- there are no bunds and that's dance central team talking really about backing or talk to those who have inflated at least.
Well I mean it's right there in the title dance central -- uses the -- -- the connect for the Xbox-360.
You just it uses a camera and popular music and you get to dance and make a fool of herself in front of all of your friends in your living room and what is more fun -- that.
I think and outside of being an amazing party game on it is something that kids can play to -- at the whole family can enjoy because you can play caught cooperatively and have a -- people experiencing time.
And the worst last best part about it is then that camera actually does take video view and then after you're done like an instant replay.
They -- -- right back on the screens -- just your thinking that these I don't know how that I look.
Yes you do now you get -- -- worst and clank all for one with the deal without one.
Well again right there in the title all for one it's actually you -- as a single player but it encourages for people to play cooperatively.
The writing is it's skewed a little bit more towards children so.
There are -- -- weapons in the game but it's not modern warfare type stuff mean you're shooting like.
Turtle shells out of a cannon that bomb and rainbows on people are made elephant I probably will be one of those games -- -- but it simply say for children.
Disneyland again -- it's it's the experience of Disneyland without having to wait in line and or -- an injury to get in a wheelchair so you can cut in front of those lines.
And Sesame Street once upon on monster.
Yes play in Sesame Street -- -- -- favorite characters and they've created an entirely new group of Muppets as well and again you -- in the connects so.
You and your children can make very exaggerated in ridiculous move in senior living -- it's quite the money experienced.
And finally number five Thailand there's -- -- adventure.
Yeah it's it's pretty unique it actually instead of using you do -- a regular control but you -- use these little action figures.
And now there's this kind of power portal that you placed them on.
And whatever you whatever action -- you have on this little portal outside of your game console that's actually your character in the game so it's a little more interactive than a lot of other games out there.
And to the surprise him absolutely no on the top sellers of the year -- across.
All the an appropriate ones and then one about boards.
Call of duty modern warfare three call of duty black -- battlefield Madden NFL -- there's been a sports fan and an eldest girls.
The east gear room.
Tonight income -- payment rates dire and damage trial.
