Over the next few weeks, we'll be buying gifts for friends and family. And while our shopping lists differ, they likely have one thing in common: video games.

The holiday season is one of the busiest times of the year for game lovers, and this year will be no different. According to NPD Group, a market research firm, gaming-related sales will increase by double digits this holiday season over the year prior. In September, game sales rose by 39% year over year, reaching $1.2 billion during the month.
