Christmas time is big for games. Not just software but the hardware side always sees huge sales at this time of the year. This year is no exception with some huge games released in the past week in the run up to the festive period across not just consoles, but PCs too. We have compiled some of the best games and gaming hardware that you, your friends and your family might want to find under their tree, there is something for everyone here.
It's worth noting that if you want to save yourself some money this Christmas, you can hold off buying any of these until around the 20th of December and will likely see some price cuts. Also if you are on a budget, don't knock picking up titles that are pre-owned as you can get them half the retail price this way.
Forza Horizon 2: Forget any other racer on the Xbox One (and that includes Forza 5), Forza Horizon 2 is a superb racer and probably the best racing game on any of the next generation consoles. Released around the same time as DriveClub on the PlayStation 4, this game not only held its own, but smashed it off the road both graphically and with excellent gameplay.
Strangely though the game has either not sold quite as well as expected or there was a large group of gamers who decided to trade it in after a short time, if you judge things by pre-owned sections that is. Despite the great reviews it may have been released early enough to drop in price just before Christmas so it may be worth holding off of it for a little while.
