Christmas is just around the corner, and what a year it’s been for gamers! Let me help reduce your search with G Style’s very own picks; below you will find peripherals and games I think would top your list of gifts.
2023 has to be the biggest year for gaming in the last 10 years — below you’ll get a list of games I think are the ultimate choices this season — all of which were reviewed by yours truly! Let’s start off with the obvious:
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is Insomniac Games best project to date, and with its conclusion and set-up for the universe they’re creating, I am eager for what come. What better gift for PS5 owners, you can buy it here, but first check out my review!
Alan Wake 2
Alan Wake 2 is very much the game we eagerly anticipated after 13 long years. Purchase your nightmare for Christmas with this excellent gift – and of course check out my review! Alan Wake 2 can only be purchased digitally on selected platforms.
Lords of the Fallen
Lords of the Fallen is an exemplar of the Soulslike genre, masterfully blending traditional elements with innovative mechanics. Be sure to complete someone’s collection by gifting this awesome game! Check out my review here!

Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty
CDPR has delivered the best expansions across their entire portfolio to date. It’s damn near a standalone game, enough to be nominated for Game of the Year in my opinion. You’ll need the base game, but it’s very much affordable at this point alongside an expansion that’s packed with amazing content for $29.99.
Phantom Liberty review here.
You can only purchase the expansion through the online store – but you can get the base game here – which includes a free next-gen upgrade.
I can’t get enough of Starfield. With everything you’re able to do, and you better believe you can do almost anything, it does so in such a great fashion. Check out my review to further solidify your gifting needs.

Just a few months after release and just starting season 2, Diablo IV is shaping up to have a promising future. Slay Lilith’s followers by gifting Diablo IV to the next savior of Sanctuary!

The Shargeek Storm2 is probably the best in the market, even if it’s a bit steep at $230 – it’s worth it if you’re a heavy portable gamer like me. There are other great alternatives out there of course, but this one to me is the best and surefire way of making sure you have everything covered.
