This third-person shooter game combines the excitement of a shoot-em-up title with the punchy colors of a Nickelodeon cartoon. The competition can run hot, especially in online multiplayer, but it doesn’t get violent—all the weapons here shoot ink in inventive ways. Talk about striking!

 Destiny 2 has amassed a cult following all over the world. The second installment of the series, it improved on the many revolutionary multiplayer features introduced in the first edition. This shooter’s massive array of weaponry and destructive liberty make it more suited to mature players, so gift with that in mind.

 Monument is a puzzle-slash-adventure game that immerses the player into dimensional wrinkles. Things don’t quite make the most spatial sense here, challenging a player to think outside the box to solve problems. With beautiful animation and a moving soundtrack, this mobile device game is definitely worth purchasing! 

Civilization VI

Available on: Windows, Linux, Mac
Price: USD 60

While Civ hasn’t been a blockbuster title in comparison to the likes of Call of Duty, it has garnered much respect in the gaming community for its near-obsessive look at large-scale historical development and war. Its detailed and meticulous world captivates with lore as it challenges strategic thinking. Civilization runs relatively light on computers which are slightly older, too.

Quantum Break

Available on: Xbox One, Windows 10
Price: About USD 20

 From the creators of the Max Payne Series comes another time-bending visual and visceral experience. It shapes the experience of the shooter with a bracing storyline and combat capabilities, which mesmerize and impress with every dynamically unique repetition. This is a new title likely on the Christmas wish list of the Xbox fan in your life.

Most gaming platforms now come with their own digital store, so it’s easy to shop straight from your computer, console, or smart device using your PayMaya card!
