Shooting and the holidays go together like peanut butter and bullets. If you need to get the shooter fan in your life a present we have some great, and violent, suggestions you have to consider. Warning, most of these games are rated M for Merry Christmas! Check out this Holiday Buyers Guide for all the goods.
Check out a list of games below.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3: Activision's juggernaut is a solid game that made a few dollars. Did I say "few dollars"? I meant a few hundred million dollars. Call of Duty is a dynasty and if you or your friend doesn't have a copy then he/she/you will be pushed off the slide.
Battlefield 3: EA and Dice have released one of the best team based mutliplayer games of the year. Sure, you don't have to play as a team but you don't win a war lone-wolfing! BF3 has an interesting single player, fun co-op and great community.
Rage: idSoftware knows how to make first-person shooters. Rage isn't just another post-apocalyptic game with an open world to explore. It also has dune buggy! Rage will offer hours of some of the best shooting gameplay of the year.
Bulletstorm: Epic Games published two great games this year. One of them was the foul-mouthed Bulletstorm. The game centers around a jolly band of space pirates. Unlike other games where the goal is to kill and move on, your goal is to kill in the most excessive, and explosive way.
Gears of War 3: Epic's other game was Gears of War 3. This title marked the end of the Gears trilogy and closed the book on Marcus Phoenix and the COG army. This third person shooter has a great story, co-op and multiplayer but Horde 2.0 is where it's at.
Child of Eden: If you don't like bullets, you're missing out. I joke. Child of Eden is a different kind of first person shooter. It's bright, colorful and is more like a rave than war. The dancefloor is a battlefield.
Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary: Halo gets a makeover in this title. Ten years after the release of Halo: Combat Evolved, 343 has remastered and updated the game. Any Halo fan will appreciate what they've done.
