Now that Thanksgiving is out of the way (for those of us in the US), it's time to talk holiday gift giving.

What do you think the holiday season will be like for you, game-wise? Do you think you're going to get a vintage game you really need? Are you buying your kids a Wii?

How's it shaping up for you?

I'll tell you straight up...I've been naughty this year so I'm getting a basket of coal. I may try to flip some spares in exchange for a Christmas gift or two for other folks.

Ikari Warriors, Alien Brigade, and Mat Mania Challange for the 7800 and some Wii baseball game are my gaming prospects, all from my wife. I'm also getting a new RCA record player, which I'm very excited about.

Hoping to get a 5200 and some games. Giving my buddy a 2600jr and a bunch of games.

I'd also like to add that the poll is either messed up, or I am. I could only click one option for the what you expect to give section.

Just caught that myself. I forgot to check the "multiple answers" box. Let me know what else you wanted to check and I'll add the numbers in.

I have been buying games for my younger brother for Christmas and for his birthday. His birthday is just less then 2 weeks away for Christmas. I am giving game Gear games and DS games to him.

I usually get a good amount of vintage games and modern games.

I bought a Wii, used. It came with Wii Sports, Call of Duty 3, NFL 2007, Red Steel.
Wii sports is great. Tried NFL 2007, I will never play that again. I didn't even try the other 2 games.
I really find sitting down with a manual and studying all night, to be a boring way of playing video games.
That's why Wii is cool, *some* of the software works right....the rest is cheap ports from the 'serious' gamer camp...those should be avoided.

I like the Wii, and don't regret buying it, and I only saved a little off list, but, it was still better, than not being able to find one, or paying double price on e-bay. Usually my tolerance for buying hardware is about $50. So...while I've owned a playstation, Atari 7800, NES....all were bought long after they were discontinued at bargain prices...

I wish I could find a colecovision...I guess next summer, I'll go to some flea markets.
Or maybe just buy one of those reconfigurable computers, like the c-one...it should probably be able to be a colecovision, I think...well someone would have to do a cartridge port...anyway...thats next year, not this one.

Woohoo - I noticed my wife ordered something from atari2600.com. A couple of boxed 5200 titles, perhaps? I also asked for RE: Umbrella Chronicles. She knows I love Resident Evil, so I'm sure she'll pick that up for me. ;)
