61 Best Gifts for Gamers for 2022

Courtesy

“Gamer” is a title to be earned. You have to pour as many hours into researching whether to upgrade to PS5 or Xbox Series X or Switch OLED as actually playing. You must learn to respect oldies from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to Street Fighter II as much as whatever’s buzzing in the gaming world this year. Top off these achievements with the thirst for an adrenaline pump from beating Elden Ring, the excitement of seeing Tom Nook’s appearance in Animal Crossing teasers, and the appreciation for the fab art of Neo: The World Ends With You, and you’re on your way to becoming a true gamer.

That might be you. It might not. But there’s no doubt you know a true gamer in your life. A rare treasure who’s strongly opinionated but super fun, gets soft about Noble Six’s death in Halo but gets tough whenever yet another Fortnite battle royale starts. They deserve a gift—and the following gifts for gamers guide will help you out when it comes to selecting the right thing. From hot game titles to cool gaming accessories to the best-performing gaming gear of the year, this collection of the 61 best gifts for gamers will help the one in your life truly earn the title.
