Video Games

Ever popular, video games have been around since the 1970s. With a range of consoles from different generations, there are thousands to choose from. Go retro and buy games for the Sega Mega Drive or get the latest Nintendo games, PS4 games, and Xbox games. eBay also has a wide range of games for kids, including Super Mario and Mario Kart, the best PC games, and great deals on Oculus Rift headsets.


In 1991, Street Fighter defined many of the conventions seen in fighting games even in the present day. Players can choose from a roster of characters to fight as, either against a computer-controlled opponent or another player. Many fighting game franchises have been running for many years and are highly successful, such as Tekken, Dead or Alive, Mortal Kombat and Soulcalibur.


Often a test of speed and reaction, players make their way through the game taking down enemies with guns. First-person shooters simulate the character's point of view, such as in games like Doom, Halo and Call of Duty. Third-person shooters have the camera above the character the player controls to give a wider breadth of vision and include titles like Tomb Raider, Gears of War and Splatoon.


Many adventure games are single-player and focus on telling a story and character development. Dialogue is very important, and sometimes the game allows the player to use a dialogue tree, which provides various options of conversation and responses that the player can choose from to interact with characters within the game. Games such as Uncharted, Red Dead Redemption, Assassin's Creed and The Legend of Zelda, while they all feature aspects of different genres, all fall under the category of adventure and make some of the best console and Xbox One Games to tick off your list.

Role-playing (RPG)

Initially, based on traditional role-playing games such as Dungeons & Dragons, RPGs usually focus on a group of adventurers progressing through a story, each with specific skill sets. Players gain experience points to level up, which opens up more combat and upgrade options to strengthen their character. Final Fantasy, World of Warcraft, Grand Theft Auto, Mass Effect and The Witcher are some of the more popular titles within the RPG genre.
