Listmania! Hot Video Games for Christmas 2008

By Glinda

Back by popular demand, we here at Teeny Manolo are delighted to share the latest and greatest in video gaming with you!

Oh, for us old people, the totally confusing world of video games! Remember when the biggest thing out there was Pong?

I will only be referring to “game system” games today, not PC games, which are a whole other ball o’ wax. By game systems, I mean XBox, PlayStation, and Wii games. Not to mention that there are actually four different versions of the PlayStation platform, and now you know why I said it can get a little confusing. These games will also be tilted towards the young ones, so don’t be expecting Grand Theft Auto.

First of all, are you looking for the system itself?

Go here for the Wii.
Go here for the XBox 360.
Go here for the PlayStation 2.
Go here for the PlayStation 3.
Go here for the Nintendo DS.
Go here for the Nintendo DS Lite.

Now, on to the games!

    Maya really wanted Viva Pinata, but we don’t have a 360. I resent the idea that I have to buy all of these consoles to play the games, and that 1/2 hour after I buy one, they’ll come out with a new one, and mine will be obsolete, and soon no games will be made for it anymore.

    That’s what happened with my XBox at least. Sigh.

  2. Litchee Says:

    Viva Pinata is available on the DS if you have one (or if you want to buy one, it’s quite cheaper than a 360).

    I’m disappointed that you did not include the PSP at all in your list.
