 Holiday Buyers Guide 2001 - Preamble
   
 Date  : Dec 19th, 2001
 Genre  : Various
 Developer   : Various
 Author  : Jin-Ning Tioh

Scribbling down "new pants" or "new coat" for little Joe or Mary? Hoping they'll scream in delight seeing yet another sweater or coat, having received one for the past ten years in a row? An unlikely fantasy. So cross "new sweater" and "new pants" off that list for little Mary and Joe, grab your credit card off the till and head on down to your local retail store to grab the latest games on the market. And after that, delight in watching as cute little Joe and Mary begin fragging Nazi troopers, officers and the undead into little, bloody pixels on the floor, all while screaming ghoulishly in their little high-pitched voices - In the nicest possible way of course.

But first, which games are deserving of little Joe and Mary's attention? Historically the holiday season is the time of year in which gaming sales begin to boom, explaining why all the good games hit store shelves during late fall. This is the time of the year when the big guns come out blazing with all their latest titles, looking to grease the wheels of capitalism. Of course, you'll want to know which of those guns are shooting blanks before you slap a fat wad o' cash on the counter, which is exactly what we're here for.

Keep in mind however, that gamers are a selective bunch. Contrary to what one might believe, there is no "model" gamer. Most gamers are unique in their tastes, and might even screw up their noses in disgust if titles of the "wrong" genre are given out to them. Try feeling out the recipient, to see what they like. Or, simply stuff a fat wad of cash in their pockets and bring them on a shopping spree to your local retail outlet. Don't worry about a lack of games - Every gamer usually has five or six games they're drooling over. Find out which ones!

Within this feature, our readers will find suggestions for all the gamers in their life. Ranging from PC titles tailored to please brain-busting puzzle solvers, to fast-paced shooters for arcade fanatics, we'll even be looking back a little at some of the titles you might have missed from earlier in the year, from must-have expansion packs, some budget titles worth scooping up, to other gaming gift ideas. So saddle up and pay close attention, and you just might find the ideal gifts for your friends and loved ones.
