Struggling for inspiration as to what gifts to get the gamer in your life? Look no further!

Christmas is just around the corner and we can barely contain our excitement here at Dream Team HQ.

After you’ve eaten your body weight in turkey and chocolate, there’s no better way to spend the evening than getting hands on with that new game or tech you unwrapped earlier.

Struggling for inspiration as to what gifts to get the gamer in your life? Look no further!

We’ve done the hard work for you and put together the ultimate guide of must-have gifts for every gamer this Xmas.

Xbox One/PS4/PC games

FIFA 20

18

It’s impossible to start anywhere else but with the juggernaut that is FIFA 20.

We’ve sacrificed far too many hours playing this game since its release in September, but we can categorically say we wouldn’t trade them back for anything.

Along with the returning favourites of Career Mode and Ultimate Team, the addition of VOLTA Football has brought a whole new dimension to the popular EA Sports series.

FIFA 20 is perfect for the football fanatic in your family and you can pick up a copy here.

Control

18

Control is without doubt one of the most intriguing games we’ve played all year.

The story is based on a secret U.S. government agency tasked with studying phenomena which defy the laws of reality. Very spooky, right?

You play as Jesse Faden and have to utilise powerful abilities to defeat a creepy enemy which has invaded and corrupted reality.

For anyone looking for a brilliantly unique game that melds AAA production values and risk-taking storytelling, Control is perfect!

Get your hands on a copy of Control here.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

18

The Fallen Order is an all-new Star Wars story that follows the journey of Cal Kestis, a young Padawan who must help rebuild the Jedi Order. No pressure then…

It didn’t take long for us to realise that this wasn’t just ‘another Star Wars game’ – Respawn and LucasFilm have knocked this one out of the park, folks.

The lightsaber action is a major upgrade on what we got in 2017’s Battlefront 2 and is back to the glory days of the Old Republic games.

The gameplay has similar look and feel to the Batman Arkham series. So if you enjoyed those games (who didn’t), then there’s no doubt you’ll love this!

You’ll struggle to find a better game than The Fallen Order to sink your teeth into this festive period.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is out now on all platforms and you can start your Jedi journey here.

Football Manager 2020

18

I’m sure we’re not alone when we confess to being certified Football Manager addicts.

Well, sadly for our loved ones, the latest release in the iconic Sports Interactive series has us hooked more than ever.

FM20 is bursting with new features that make your managerial journey the most engaging experience yet.

The introduction of ‘club vision’ sets you clear objectives to strive for in your job whatever the level, and as ever there have been big improvements to game’s match engine.

It’s safe to say we’ll be busy spending the rest of 2019 and beyond taking Leyton Orient from League Two to the top of the Premier League.

Take your seat in the dugout and start your managerial career on FM20 here.
