Gift Guide: 10 games to make any player happy
A video game store can be daunting if you don't know what you're looking for. It's not easy to tell the winners from the losers, and sales clerks typically make the same salary whether they sell you a gem or a stinker. ('Farming Simulator,' anyone?)
So when you head to the mall, take this list. These are some of the best games of 2013, and any gamer on your holiday shopping list will be thrilled to see one of them under the tree.
"Tearaway" (Sony, for the PlayStation Vita, $39.99): The new game from the studio behind "LittleBigPlanet" takes full advantage of the hand-held Vita. You can help characters by drawing objects on the front screen. You can tap on the back of the Vita to poke holes in the papercraft settings. You can use the Vita's camera to put your own face in the sun. It's the best game yet for Sony's portable device.
