I want to surprise my grandson with a video game. What is the most popular?
The video game you purchase depends on the computer or type of video game console your grandson owns. Some major brands of computer systems and consoles are PC, Macintosh, Microsoft Xbox 360, Nintendo Entertainment System, Wii, Game Boy, Sega Genesis, and Sony PlayStation.
Although there are hundreds of video games, your grandson may already have the game. For example, some very popular games listed by Game Rankings (www.gamerankings.com) are Diablo III, Drdagon's Dogma, Total War: Shogun 2, Minecraft.
In addition, your grandson's age may determine the type of game that is most appropriate or acceptable for him to play. It would be best to discuss video games with his parents before purchasing. They would know the games that he already has, which games he wants and whether they approve or not.
