Well it’s finally Christmas day and we at Gamer Limit hope everyone is having a Merry Christmas, no doubt a lot of you are opening up games but many of you are sadly stuck in family events and are unable to play them, so if you have access to the site here is the top 5 gaming related presents you don’t want for Christmas.
5. An Xbox 360 Box full of clothes

4. Wii Wrist / Broken Plasma TV
As published on the daily telegraph
The games, which encourage players to mimic the actions of sports, can cause painful sprains and fractures, they added. Although the games have been praised for encouraging people to be more active, using them incorrectly or for long periods can lead to injuries. This year, the Wii is predicted to be one of the most popular Christmas presents. But doctors said those who spent too long on the games, especially those unused to exercise, were at risk of strain.

Or on the other side it could be worse, you could get your TV smashed by over enthusiastic Wii playing family members.
3. Shovel Ware
Family can be well intentioned when they go out their way to buy you a game for Christmas, but it totally sucks when the game is shovel ware with zero redeeming features, our suggestion is to thank them gracefully for the gift and ask if they don’t mind giving you the receipt for ‘warranty purposes’.
The Wii, we are looking at you.
2. Rock Revolution instead of Rock Band
This could arguably be the worst gift that could be given, it could truely destroy a kid’s spirit if his friends get Rock Band and he gets the ugly step-brother ‘Rock Revolution’. As an indication of how bad it is Metacritic scores it 39 out of 100.
1. Any Uwe Boll Movie
“Hey isn’t that movie based on the game Little Jimmy Loves”
“Yes, it must be good because Little Jimmy loves that games”
The all too familiar trap which results in one of the worst gaming gifts, the films are utterly dreadful, with even a few ranked among the worst films of all time, we have no idea how Uwe Boll keeps getting permission to make them but we can only hope it stops soon.
Nonetheless we hope you have a very merry Christmas from all the staff at Gamer Limit.
