Christmas is here again and its that time of the year when most of us are having difficulties on what gifts to buy for our relatives and friends. If budget is not an issue, then look no further because just recently the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) released a report indicating that Forty-two (42) percent of American adults plan to give or hope to receive a computer or video game this holiday season
The poll, conducted by KRC Research, also found that 52 percent of respondents believe that with the current economy, video games are a good option for family entertainment this holiday season.
The number of adults who plan to give or hope to receive at least one computer or video game this holiday season increased nine percentage points from 2007, representing the highest number since 2004. Additionally, the research showed yet again that both men and women enjoy computer and video games.
Forty-seven percent of respondents identified women as an intended gift recipient, a 31 percent increase from 2007.
Holiday shoppers continue to choose computer and video games because they provide the gift of family entertainment at a great value. The survey showed that 54 percent of those who play computer and video games plan to play with a friend or family member during the holiday season.
For about the cost for a family of four to go to a movie, a gift giver can find the perfect game that will amuse children and adults during the holidays and beyond. By using the tools provided by the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) shoppers can choose games that are appropriate for their families.
Game or no game, family should always come first. God Bless us all!
