Don’t panic, it’s not Father’s day just yet for the whole wide world (Or it’s long gone). In this guide, we’ll be concentrating on how to find the best gaming gift ideas for Dads who get to be spoilt on the first Sunday of September (Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Papua New Guinea).
Console Dad, PC Dad, Mobile Dad?
Your Dad will preferably want something that fits his gaming platform of choice. A game, controller or accessory could suit, perhaps. Pick something along the lines of what gaming platform he uses, his choice of accessories (keyboard/mouse, controller, VR) and the genre of games he likes. Whether it be an action game, RPG, shooter, sports game or the many others on offer. And if you can, make sure you double-check the game’s not already sitting in his library.
A sweet upgrade
If you think he’s got just about everything he possibly could, there’s always room for more. A 4K TV, 120hz 24″ monitor, portable SSD drive or gaming laptop could be the perfect complement to his setup. Video Games companies are throwing new products at us every day and I’m sure there’s something out there he’s been thinking of getting.
Does he mind waiting just that bit extra?
September is a big month for Nintendo due to the next version of the Nintendo Switch console launching, The Nintendo Switch Lite. It’s compact, lighter and has access to a library of over 2,000 games. It’s perfect for your Dad while he’s on the road and you can keep in touch using Nintendo Switch Online to verse each other in your favourite games. He won’t need to wait too long, it launches on September 20th.
Retro gamers are synonymous with gamer Dads and now is the perfect time to give your Dad his retro fix. Vintage gaming is taking off and you’ll easily impress your Dad and he’ll be able to easily impress his workmates with the NuXT – Micro ATX Turbo. The NuXT is an Intel 8088 motherboard that allows you to build a new IBM XT class computer. This is no emulator, it’s the real deal. Your Dad will have a blast building his very own new Turbo XT system in a micro ATX form factor.
You can’t decide?
Don’t fret. A wallet top-up is a perfect solution. A Wallet Top-Up on the PlayStation Store gives your dad the power to choose exactly what he wants. He can choose games, ad-ons, apps, and more all from the comfort of his man cave. Nintendo offers eShop gift cards and Microsoft offers Xbox Game Cards, also.

Have a great Father’s Day, gamer Dads!
