Kotaku’s Ultimate 2023 Gift Guide

2023 has been one heck of a year for games. The typically slow month of January saw the launch of the critically acclaimed Dead Space remake, the shadow-drop sensation Hi-Fi Rush, and the just-fine Fire Emblem Engage. And every month since has seen a steady stream of high-profile bangers, from Like a Dragon Ishin and Tears of the Kingdom to Baldur’s Gate 3 and Alan Wake 2.

There’s just one downside to all this excellence: There’s just too much great stuff out there to choose from! So if you’re looking for a gift for a loved one, there are loads of great options to choose from at every price point. Here are our picks for the very best gamer gifts of 2023.

If you’re looking to splash out for one of your loved ones this year, and they don’t have a PS5 yet, this special-edition console is an enviable gift. It also includes a digital copy of Spider-Man 2, one of the best games of a phenomenally stacked 2023.

The white shell for the standard issue PS5 is a grime magnet, even if it just sits inside a media unit all day. This Spidey console has a bit more of a distinctive look that’s easier on the eyes, even with the customary layer of dust. It comes with a spiffy custom controller, too. –JG
