RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA TV) - With thousands of options on the market, shopping for video games for kids of any age can be tough. New games are constantly being released, and some gamers have very specific tastes.
Rich Rasmussen of GameStop in Rapid City recommends parents always look at their child's game library before shopping. Game and genre preferences can help determine which new release will be the most enjoyed.
GameStop also has a catalog that can be picked up in stores. Letting your child pick options in the catalog for you to choose from can make the process much easier.
If your gamer always wants the newest and coolest, Rasmussen picked six of the hottest games for holiday gifts this year.
Gamers 12 years old and younger:
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2
Star Wars Battlefront II
Super Mario Odyssey
Gamers over the age of 12:
Assassin's Creed Origins
Middle-earth: Shadow of War
Call of Duty: WWII
If all else fails, a gift card can save everyone from disappointment and the return process.
