Geeks & Gamers Christmas Gift Guide

geeks & gamers

*Ad-Gifted. All opinions are my own.

I was called a geek at school and even as I got into my twenties and it was used towards me in a derogatory way. However, now I wear the badge with pride and am proud to be both a geek and a somewhat part-time gamer as life often gets in the way. However, whether you geek out over Harry Potter or game away on Animal Crossing until your hearts content (I have lost soooooooo many hours villager hunting) or are simply a loved one of someone who does, this guide should help you find the perfect gift for your Geeks & Gamers this Christmas.

Depending on game mode, players can fight computer-controlled mobs, as well as cooperate with or compete against other players in the same world. Game modes include a survival mode, in which players must acquire resources to build the world and maintain health, and a creative mode, where players have unlimited resources and access to flight. Players can modify the game to create new gameplay mechanics, items, and assets.
