I did, and I did!

I gave my brother Primal Rage for 3DO...but I apparently already got it for him a couple of years ago, so I got Primal Rage for 3DO. :-D

My brother got me Super Street Fighter II Turbo for 3DO, and my sister got me Bigflap Attack for the Timex/Sinclair. And a game shop in town had some really good deals going on, so I grabbed Waverace 64 and Jet Force Gemini for Nintendo 64, and Double Dragon for Game Boy. And a copy of Tapper for Atari 2600 was waiting in my mailbox when I got home. :)

Now I just need to get my brother something else he doesn't actually have! :P :-D

Yes!  I'm the only game nerd so I received the games (I gave baseball cards..can you believe someone would want baseball cards instead of video games?)   :-D

 

I received T:me Salvo and Space Cactus Canyon (both arrived today).

 

Played Space Cactus....it's great!  Saving T:me Salvo for tomorrow.

I gave my brother-in-law Final Fantasy 12 Zodiac Age. I received Rub Rabbits for DS from my sister. Mom got me Frenzy for Colecovision, and the seller apparently sent along a free copy of Miner 2049er. Both have box & manual. It's the first time in years I've gotten retro games, and the first time ever that I've gotten older than 16-bit era- so I'm pretty happy!

 

After work yesterday I picked up Abzu, RiME, and Life is Strange for PS4 with the Gamestop B2G1 sale. Also a Sneak King for 360, becuase why not. (Actually, the 'why not' is becuase my birthday's in a week so I may regret this later- oh well ;) )

I gave someone a couple of Mary Kate & Ashley GBC games as part of the secret Santa festivities on another forum.  I think someone on this forum gave them to me a few years ago.  Received a Sega Genesis arcade stick.

I gave my son a PS4 Slim so he could have one in his room. The launch model stays in the living room. It was a two fold move cause now the wife and I have the living room TV back. He can play whatever in his room if we are watching TV or when we just don't want to hear Call Of Duty with the inevitable game chat. I received a Playstation gift card from my sister. Probably gonna get the season pass for Wolfenstein 2.

Sure. Is it video game related or not? Why be so cryptic about what I'm guessing is some sort of gift card??

I'm sorry but you make no logical sense at all.

Yep it sure does! I have family that asks for interent links to games or flat out tells me to pick a presant for myself as I'm "hard to buy for". They say that because I don't really want or need for much and what do want or need I buy for myself.

I didn't have the money to get anyone anything this year. No one bought me anything anyway, so I guess that was fair. It still sucks though, I didn't even get socks! :_(

Not a giftcard. A white index/file card with a square drawn on it.

No. But I did get some amazon credits, for which I bought the GTA Trilogy and Ace Combat 4 for the PS2 and a hard drive for my Wii.

My girlfriend and I are getting a little burned out on Mario Party 8 (we play at least weekly), so I picked up MP 9 for our Wii this year. Also MP 5 for our GameCube, which is on the bedroom TV. It's nice to wake up on a weekend and play a little!
