I have, at times in my life, been a little bit of a Grinch. I’ve been known to grumble about commercialism and obligatory, perfunctory, meaningless gift giving. I think we can all get that way at times. But this year, I’m in love, and I’m all goofy and filled with holiday spirit, presents already wrapped, eager to get them in happy hands for unwrapping… I’m de-Grinchified, and it’s kind of fun. Here are the PopCap gifts I’m giving this year:
See, I love my time at the arcade, but you don’t always feel like going out to play, especially in the rainy season. At home, you may not have as many multiplayer, cooperative gaming options available. Here are a couple of great choices!
Bejeweled 3 for Xbox 360 is not only a terrific game in its own right, the disk version also includes Bejeweled Blitz Live, which is a really fun way to spend time with someone you care about. I’ve spent hours with good friends, alternately winning and losing rounds, talking smack and laughing like crazy as we make gems explode.
Plants vs. Zombies for Xbox 360 has the first-ever co-op mode in a PopCap game, and it’s a great choice if you want to sneak a love of gaming past the skeptical or snooty misgivings of a friend or partner who’s been reluctant to try it out. Even better, it also includes Peggle, the simplest form of radiant delight the world has ever known. (And if that sounds like hyperbole, you haven’t played Peggle.)
So that’s my holiday shopping list from PopCap! What about you?
