    I buy games for my brothers which are over 20 and if I ask for birthday presents then games are among the things asked for and received, however I hate getting presents so I usually dodge the questions.

    I guess it instead sucks to be you.

    Do you like motorbikes, tasty food, fixing things and rock music?

    Cars are OK too, especially if they skew older, however motorbikes would have sealed the deal. Do note I meant motorbikes rather than scooters, which are right out, and those fancy bmws with the heated seats and handles, 90 boxes and the like are suspect.

    I guess the burgers they buy are tasty -- it always amused me when stateside that people made their own burgers and would get everything else out of a packet. They do also come with fried onions. Generally though burgers are baseline acceptable food for bbqs and when at festivals and the like, or something you stick in the oven because you are lazy and don't fancy cooking anything that night.

    Get yourself a toolkit and pull some things apart. Keep doing that for years, also read some books (or I guess watch some videos) on how things work.

    Just buy a fancy PC and pirate all of your games. ;)

    i buy my own Consoles, i usually ask for and receive money for my bdays, but im also not over 20 :I

    Also fixing stuff is ok, but building stuff: much more rewarding.

    Somewhere you can never find.
    But whenever people do buy games for others, its probably some 3rd party shovelware bargain bin game for the wrong system. I'm better off buying my own games.
