We love making game recommendations to our friends and family, but we've been struggling recently. Specifically, we've been utterly stumped whenever someone tells us they don't know which Kinect or PlayStation Move game to buy for the worst person they know.
"I have to buy them a gift, Joystiq," they'll plead, "but they're literally just the most vile creature. They smell like cat food and their favorite movie is Ghost of Girlfriends Past and when I ask their favorite actor, they say 'Borat.' I just hate them."
So, in a way, we owe a debt to 505 Games, which is releasing Grease, a singing and dancing game for Kinect and PlayStation Move, on November 4. Finally, we know the perfect video game gift for anybody on your shopping list, even someone you hate with the white hot intensity of a thousand suns.
