Gamers are a tricky bunch to buy for around Christmas. Now, Call of Duty, Medal of Honor and Battlefield might be totally different properties to you and I, but try telling that to your nan. She has the unenviable task of picking out this year's must-have from a shelf full of has-been shooters and copy-cat clones. No wonder you end up with the wrong game under the tree. Oh, and when they do get it right, it's most probably for the wrong console. Try again next year.
The Humble Indie Bundle 4 not only relieves such fears, but it's also as expensive or as cheap as you want it to be. In a world where Activision and EA chomp at each other's throats to draw money from our wallets, Child's Play's 'Humble Bundle' series proves that we gamers can be a charitable bunch after all.
Teaming up with an assorted group of independent developers with each incarnation, gamers are offered a selection of popular indie titles for a pay-what-you-want sum. Either as little or as much as you can afford. Humble Indie Bundle 4 makes a perfect Christmas gift for the avid gamer, packing a stocking-full of gaming goodies (Super Meat Boy, Shank, Jamestown, Bit.Trip Runner, NightSky) to enjoy. Pay more than the going average donation and you'll also receive Cave Story + and Gratuitous Space Battles. What more could you ask for?
