So you don’t know what to get your significant other for Christmas. You’ve searched far and wide on the web to find that perfect gift, only to find out they like playing video games. Don’t let that deter you from getting a perfect gift for your significant other. A fellow gamer has come up with a nearly perfect guide for you and your video game needs. He calls it “The Totally Perfect Video Game Guide” or TTPVGG for short.

In the TTPVGG, it states that if you want a guide on Nintendo Switch games, then you’re on the right page. Some of the best games to get for the Switch are “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild,” “Super Smash Bros. Ultimate,” and “Super Mario Odyssey.” Some other honorable mentions include “Super Mario Maker 2,” “Pokemon Sword and Shield,” and “Luigi’s Mansion 3.”

The next page of TTPVGG has all your Xbox needs. The Xbox has a wide variety of games, all ranging from rated E to M. The top rated E game shown is “Minecraft” and “Stardew Valley.” The next top rated games are the T ratings. The top rated T games are “Terraria” and “Destiny 1 and 2.” The guide has a warning on it after the T. Now for the rated M games. The top rated M  games according to the guide are “Titanfall 2” and  “Red Dead Redemption 2.”

The final page for consoles is PS4. Again starting with rated E, it has “Minecraft” and “Rayman Legends.” Top rated T games are “Marvel’s Spider-Man” and “Destiny 1 and 2.” Another warning page and then the rated M games are up. Top rated M games are “Persona 5” and “Red Dead Redemption 2.”

The final page of the guide is for PC gaming. This page has mostly Steam games on it. The top rated Steam games are “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt,” “Skyrim,” and “Portal 2.” Most of the games are also on consoles but you still look for more. Some other games are “Team Fortress 2,” “Half-Life 2,” and “Garry’s Mod.” You notice that a majority of the games are on most consoles as well. “Minecraft,” “Terraria,” and even “Destiny 2.” You also notice that PC has many more games than all three consoles, VR included.

Since you’ve went through the four-page guide rightfully named “The Totally Perfect Video Game Guide,” now you’re ready to buy that significant other a perfect video  game. Always keep in mind that each variant of a game may have some subtle differences. That being said, every game still has their core function and the subtle differences don’t change much. It’s always great to buy a significant other a game, and it may turn out to be their favorite in the long run.
