OP  12/21/11 11:15:56 AM#1

With Christmas literally right around the corner, it behooves us to know the best gifts to buy for our loved ones. In today's Coyote's Howling, we take a look at the things we should NEVER buy the gamer in our lives. Read on and then leave us a comment or two.

With only a few days left before Christmas, everyone is scrambling to finish that last bit of shopping that they have to do.

In an effort to avoid the awkward silence or the obviously fake too-enthusiastic smile that comes when someone receives a gift that they know they’ll never use, we’ve created a list of five things that you should never buy your gamer for Christmas.

great article as usual.

I think you forgot to tell him about the Build-It-Yourself fitness board that comes with it, as well as a gift card for a store that sells exclusively cassette tapes!

 

 

And agreed, loved reading it through and its delightfully sarcastic tones.

"but partially because the picture of the model on the box that lured you in was done by entire teams of professionals with steady hands and an almost DaVincian talent for Photoshop."


Or it was painted by one guy that ACTUALLY knows how to paint properly.


Apparently stating the truth in my sig is "trolling"
Sig typo fixed thanks to an observant stragen001.

Hey, I wouldn't mind any of the gifts...I still enjoy music CDs, there is a novelty in actually having the CD.


Gym membership/gym gear?  I'll take it.  I believe last year I asked for a set of weights that I still use.  Not that I need more...but I mean, this isn't a horrible gift if you plan on using them.


Gift cards?  Well, I will definetly take them if they are for somewhere that has decent stuff, but the 25$ wal-mart gift card I get every year from my grandpa?  I could do without that specific store, because I hate wal-mart and have no desire to go there, especially around, or after christmas.


Models?  Well, for a gamer who plays table top games...(Space Orks, Warhammer 40k)  I would love to get a few models for christmas.  In fact I asked for a specific model for christmas so I can flesh out my army more.  I suppose some of us just are into it while others are not!  (As far as a model that does nothing but sit there and collect dust, no thanks).


And video games?  Hell yea!  I understand you have to interact with your family, but I mean of course I want video games!  Buy me a nintendo, nintendo games, a sega, a super nintendo, a nintendo 64..ps1..ps2..I don't care, it all is great to me!  Sure I may have to wait to play them, farting in people's eggnog, but the anticipation makes it that much sweeter when you actually get to play!


Great write-up though, very funny as usual.

"the rest of us are basically the paste eating retards who failed art class."


Made me LOL while trying to drink Sprite, which subsequently shot out my nose, causing a great amount of pain and eye-watering.... Well done!

12/22/11 2:50:38 PM#16

Ahhhhh Warhammer 40k... No wonder my models look like shit lol.


"While it is true that there is a very small sub-species of geek who are adept at assembling small figures and painting them with breath taking detail; the rest of us are basically the paste eating retards who failed art class. Because of this, what we build never even faintly resembles the picture on the box when we're done."

I really enjoy it but for where the gift cards come from. I pass on the Taco Bell (rather make tacos at home and up away from computer for that hour at max) and rather have Amazon. Now days though I find a way to use any gift card that isn't food online if I need to. Get with the times and realize the gift cards can work. There are even ways to trade them with other people without ever leaving your computer to get what you want. 


Still greatly enjoyed the article except for that part where I felt like I was reading back when gift cards just started showing up.

On the subject matter of gift cars in the article, not true.

 

Your loved ones can get you an amazon gift card, which can buy pratically anything and everything on amazon. Bazinga.

People simply can't create fun for themselves!

12/22/11 6:36:53 PM#20

Scrub list, as it didn't really hit a point as to why someone would complain about a present or free gift they got that they actually wanted. I do agree some memberships are just silly, but a present is something that someone wants, and if they don't want that item, don't gift wrap it. You hate the person, you don't really care as to if they want the present or not.


I struggle not with life, money, emotions, and world, but against old mindsets and selves to be proven obsolete in a age and time of rapid changes. Go create fun, so you can have fun.
