Contrary to popular opinion, we believe that games make the best presents. Similarly to books, each game is an adventure, a portal to another universe and gifting universes is cool – especially for people who love games. However, not everyone likes the same games.

You have to keep in mind to whom you are giving the gift, what games or activities that person likes, and what games they already own. If you’re looking for some recommendations, here are some of the best new games you can pick up on Eneba games store. In this list, we’ve tried to include various game genres dedicated to every type of gamer out there.

Racing never looked so glorious. The latest addition to the Forza series is Forza Horizon 4, which looks magnificent, to say the least. The game has some of the most detailed recreations of cars (more than 450 different models), dynamic seasons that change gameplay and a huge open world to explore while enjoying your time behind the wheel. Forza Horizon 4 boasts an epic multiplayer experience filling up to 72 players in one server. However, this is not mandatory because Forza Horizon 4 has plenty to offer in offline mode as well.
