When it comes to gifts for 12 year old boys, video games remain controversial, however, as someone who has been playing video games for a long time, I can honestly say that video games played a huge role at keeping me out of trouble, drug free, more creative, and able to learn new tasks faster.
The PS4 is an amazing game system that brings some of the power seen with computer gaming to everyday households at an affordable price. The Playstation 4 allows users to play the newest games available and participate in online gaming which is now considered a standard hobby. Unlike most other gifts that quickly lose their appeal, game systems keep their value for practically as long as you can use it. Online games offer 100s of hours of entertainment that cannot be replicated by any other form of media.
Look at the video below of Overwatch, one of the most popular multiplayer games, to see the graphic capabilities of the PS4.
3. CyberpowerPC Gamer Ultra Gaming Desktop
An alternative to a gaming console is the gaming pc. PC's have always been the leading gaming system in terms of quality and multi-functionality. Unlike a game console a gaming pc performs all of the functions of a regular pc but is also optimized to play games. No doubt, if you have ever tried to play a high resource game on a standard computer you were met with the sad message that the game will not even open, let alone run. Modern games require a lot of processing power, memory, graphics card capability, cooling, and power usage. This usually leads to $1000+ in upgrades to a computer, but Cyberpower has done an amazing job at constructing a decent gaming computer to allow more gamers to play on pc with having to spend a small fortune.
The CyberpowerPC Gamer Ultra is sure to be one of the best gifts you can get for a child that is starting to learn the workings of a computer. Gaming computers provide years of usage and can be upgraded part by part, rather than buying an entirely new system. It is important to note that the Gamer Ultra is not the best choice for the highest demanding games but is perfect for the average teenager who is just getting into pc gaming.
