We all know what we’re getting that gamer we love, be it a friend, spouse, significant other, or yourself for the holidays. There’s list upon list out there of the top holiday games, accessories, systems and more. What there ISN’T, and what we’re interested in this week, is what to get that gamer in your life that you just can’t stand:
What game, or gaming related item would you get the gamer on your list that you hate? What is your gaming equivalent of coal in the stocking?
The item should be something that’s attainable (so “A Meteor into their bedroom window” wouldn’t work), gaming related (see previously mentioned Meteor, and no, the spell from Final Fantasy in not an acceptable substitute), and most importantly, tell us WHY you think the gift you mention would be the perfect gift for the one you loathe. It’d be nice if the responses were of something fairly recent, but it’s hard to deny how awful a Virtual Boy would be as a gift.
ChaCha.com responds: “ET, The Extra Terrestrial (2600) seems to be a popular choice for worse graphics of a video game.” – Hard to argue that logic.
A Simple Question (ASQ) is a weekly segment for Platform Nation. Each week, you’ll be posed a question. Give a response and let the world know what you think, there is no right or wrong answer here. I will post my response on Friday. If you have a suggestion for a question, hit me up on twitter @vttym.
