A Boyfriend For Christmas

11/26/2011 07:05 AM ET

A Boyfriend For Christmas - Here are a few boyfriend tips on what to buy him for Christmas.

Thankfully, we can help you translate all this dead-end dialogue into four words: “We Want Video Games.” From the time we were boys to now that we’ve grown up to be boys at heart, our wish list hasn’t changed all that much. To give you even more precise directions, here are the most desirable gaming gifts that should be on your significant other’s ambiguous wish list.

If you want a lot of time alone: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

There’s no better solution than Skyrim for Christmas. This open-world action RPG from Bethesda Softworks has the ability to captivate him for more than 80 hours. On top of that, thanks to its more natural character creation scheme, it gives him a newfound sense of freedom without the need for you to give anything up.

If he still enjoys toys: Skylander Spyro Adventure Starter Pack

Skylander Spyro’s Adventure is a game aimed at kids. But it’s also true that we secretly still love toys. That’s why it’s going to be extremely difficult to avoid this revival of the Spyro series - it comes with detailed figurines that are magically brought to life in the game. The best part is that you can save your platforming game progress directly to the toy and use it at a friend’s house if he or she owns the game and a portal.

Cinematic Storytelling for your Adventure Buddy: Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception

Hint: there’s a good chance that your boyfriend wants Uncharted 3 if he was clutching onto a Subway fountain drink long after visiting the restaurant. That’s because the extremely large version of this cup included a code to enter this PS3 game’s multiplayer beta. The bad news is that this ridiculous promotion ended and now he has to man-up by asking you for the full game.

If he is still Playing Black Ops: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

You may want to purchase him a sound-proof room or at least a pair of headphones for Christmas. The six-hour campaign mode doesn’t hold back on the deafening thrills and eardrum-busting explosions. Likewise, multiplayer has been tweaked to perfection. It has 16 maps out of the box compared to the nine from rival Battlefield 3, and the game types are more creative than anything else out there. Spec Ops is also is back, giving your boyfriend and his most trusted buddy an even better way to evolve their bromance.
