The end of the year celebrations are approaching and you don’t know what gifts to offer those around you. As a hardcore gamer, gifts can be a religious opportunity for people who aren’t big on video games, or who think they don’t like them because they’ve never tried them before. Sharing your passion while offering a quality gift is possible. This is why, with the editor, we’ve created a selection of great titles that are easy to learn for beginners.
Narrative adventures for players who have never touched a video game are a great choice. Plus, if the person you want to gift is into series and movies, then giving Life is Strange could be perfect for them. Praised by critics time and time again and available on many platforms including Switch or mobile (iOS and Android). There’s very little difficulty for this title where the gameplay lies primarily in the wise use of time return, which shouldn’t destabilize most newbies. Our choices aren’t limited to the first installment, but it’s a great way to start the saga. Charming character and exquisite staging for a good life, no doubt it will be a wonderful gift!
Does the person you want to give a gift to like horror movies? Until Fajar can make her happy. This interactive film developed by Supermassive Games promises to be a chilling experience that picks up on the code of the sword, while taking inspiration from American folklore. You should take the time to explain to the lucky recipient of this gift that any character can die if he doesn’t hit the right button at the right time. A title for lovers of horror, but also suspense!
If you want to gift someone who loves travel and relaxation, Journey is a great choice. Exploration, ruins, slides on the sand and Zen atmosphere… these are the contents of this game that are considered a unique experience. Originally released on Playstation, now over 10 years old, this title is now available on PC. Giving Journey is as soft to the touch as it is sweet poetry that is very easy to grasp.
Developed by the same studio as Journey, Flower may also appeal to people who want to relax and have a certain poetic sensibility. Players embody the wind and explore multiple environments by spinning flower petals in the air. Available on Playstation and PC, this is a very accessible game that can appeal to both the very young and the elderly alike. Joy, nature, flowers and joy radiate in abundance from this great title!

This title will not overwhelm you with the text, in all its calmness and tenderness. Very short (about 1 hour of use), suitable for people who don’t want to spend too much time in front of the screen. A story centered on love and the emptiness of life, offers a true journey of introspection.
Lover of travel and the 90s? This little French indie game might even appeal to someone who says they don’t like video games. As the name suggests, Road 96 is a real Road Trip. The player embodies a different teenager trying to escape the regime of their country. Adventure and freedom await you, with 90s music as the background!

Just Dance is also an opportunity to work out, especially with the “Sweat” mode which lets you see the calories burned.
The Sims is a great classic to offer people who don’t necessarily appreciate video games in general. With its many extensions and kits, there’s plenty to do, especially since The Sims 4 went free! For people who have already played the fourth installment, the third is also an excellent title that shouldn’t be overlooked. The Sims is now a pretty big universe if you count all the available DLCespecially with the recent “The Sims 4: High School Years” which provides access to American high school life.
