Holiday Buyers Guide 2011 - Top Sports Games »

G4 is spending the month helping you shop for holiday presents! Sadly, we can't go with you to the mall, but we can recommend that perfect present. We've got guides covering what to get your gamer girlfriend, what to get your gamer boyfriend, gifts for the Modern Warfare 3 fan in your life and much more.

If you need to buy a present for a fan of sports video games, we've got you covered too. G4 recommends the following sports games for that jock on your holiday list.

  • Madden NFL 12: More than just a video game series, Madden is practically a way-of-life; in many gamer houses, it just isn't Christmas without a Madden game under the tree, and this year's entry in the series brings with it harder hits and some impressive new features.
  • NHL 12: Hockey is the football of Canada, so strap on some skates and get out there and slap a puck around, man! It would be hard to beat NHL 11, but NHL 12 comes awfully close. Definitely a great game for the hockey fan on your list.
  • FIFA Soccer 2012 : A lot of jocks have the attitude that soccer isn't really a sport, but those guys are spoilsports. Soccer is the most popular game in the entire world, and if you need any proof, just pick up the latest FIFA and see what the fuss is about. The hard hits of the new Player Impact Engine can be felt all the way in Argentina.
  • MLB 11: The Show: The dead of Winter is no time to be playing actual baseball, but video game baseball is perfect, no matter what the weather. America's pastime will provide no end of fun, and is probably the most realistic baseball simulator ever created.
  • NBA 2K12: The actual NBA season may be a no-show this year, but no worries: Gamers can enact the entire spectacle with this in-depth video game that includes not only current teams, but many of the greatest teams from the past, too.

Here's a couple added sports games for you:

  • WWE 12: Although wrestling isn't, technically, a "sport," it's pretty close, and this wrestling game is more than just great: It's among the best wrestling games ever made, so if you want to wow that special wrestling-aficionado, this is the game to do it.
  • Starcraft 2: Starcraft might be the first video game series that inspires the kind of competition real sports bring, so, while it isn't a game based on a sport, Starcraft actually is considered a sport in some parts of the world. Anyone who loves competition will love this game, and we all know how much sports fans love competing.
