It’s hard to imagine Call of Duty has been around 15+ years now! This popular series of games was always intended to offer a great shooter option – and the games always deliver. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II is no exception and an option you should really consider picking up this Christmas.

Often described as a “new era” in the Call of Duty series, Modern Warfare II was designed for state-of-the-art gameplay across various consoles: PS4, PS5, PC, and XBOX. This means no matter which console you prefer, you’re likely able to grab this title!

Modern Warefare II is a compelling shooter sequel to 2019’s rebooted Modern Warfare. Captain Price’s iconic Task Force 141 is now fully formed and operating around the world. Price is joined by iconic characters Simon “Ghost” Riley, Kyle “Gaz” Garrick, and John “Soap” MacTavish. This newly assembled Task Force also includes a never-before-seen character, known as Alejandro Vargas.

The game offers staple modes like Team Deathmatch, Domination, and Search and Destroy as well as two new round-based objective modes called Prisoner Rescue and Knockout. For gamers who enjoy a solid shooter-style game, Modern Warfare II is a no-brainer.

4. Stardew Valley (Nintendo Switch): $14.99 (Digital Download)

This relaxing game is available as an inexpensive digital download on Nintendo Switch’s eShop – making it an excellent (and easy) Christmas gift choice. Of course, you can also purchase it as a physical copy – but you’re going to pay quite a bit more to do so.

In Stardew Valley, you’ve inherited your grandfather’s old farm plot. Armed with hand-me-down tools and a pocket of coins, you set out to begin your new life. Can you learn to live off the land and turn these overgrown fields into a thriving home? It definitely won’t be easy!

You’ll learn lots of skills and develop new relationships along the way. The game is heavy-set on farming and relationship building, which is evident almost immediately.

The game can be played in singleplayer or multiplayer mode, allowing 1-3 additional players to join you in the valley!

5. Empyrion: Galactic Survival (PC): $19.99

Empyrion: Galactic Survival is a 3D open-world “space sandbox survival” adventure. You can build powerful ships, incredible space stations, and vast planetary settlements to explore.

Fight human, alien, and biological hazards and survive in a hostile galaxy full of hidden dangers. This PC-based game may be one of our less expensive options, but it packs a whole lot of punch! Whether you play in singleplayer mode or team up with friends in multiplayer… You can choose to create alliances or make war in order to conquer the solar system. Which will it be?

Empyrion uniquely combines elements from space simulations, construction games, survival games, and shooter-style games. There are infinite possibilities and it really does offer a little something for everyone!
