    Please help me understand video games. lol Xbox!

    I've never played a video game in my life, so I'm pretty incompetent on how these things work XD

    Hubby has an Xbox One and I'd like to get him some more games for Christmas, but I have no idea what he'd be into! Currently he plays Halo, has for years and still loves it. What else would be similar? Or what else is popular right now?

    I know like Halo, some of the games have a storyline, so I wouldn't want to purchase a current game without obtaining the first edition, or possibly even buy the bundle set. If that makes sense lol.

    Also, how can I tell if he has an Xbox Live Gold account? Some of the games I was looking said this was a requirement, where would I snoop in the Xbox menu to find out..?

    Please help!! Hahah

    @stargazer, I know it would spoil your intention of a surprise, but perhaps you'd be better off just being honest and saying you'd like to get him something gamer-related, but didn't want to muck it up. I'm sure he'd appreciate your thoughtfulness in encouraging his gaming.

    Popular series that are similar to Halo in some regards include Bioshock, Mass Effect, Dishonored and Fallout. I've pasted a link below with some more suggestions.

    As for Gold, I did some googling and other people asking the same question were pretty much shut down. I think you'd need to log into his account/check the billing email to be able to know.

    @Bacchus Yeah that's true... perhaps a gift card would be ideal, but I always feel like they're not very personal XD. But thanks for the suggestions, I will look into those!!

    Microsoft gift card would probably be best!
