Subscriptions are the best last-minute gaming gift suggestions

  • Apple Arcade: For $9 a month, Apple provides a library of more than 200 games that can be downloaded and played offline, and which are free from any in-app purchases. Some of the best include Cypher 007, Shovel Knight Dig, NGA 2K24 Arcade, Angry Birds Reloaded, and Sonic Racing.
  • PlayStation: Sony’s three plans ($12 a month for Essential, $18 a month for Extra, $22 a month for Premium) provide a range of benefits. Essential is required to play online, Extra adds games from the Playstation and Ubisoft libraries, and Premium adds PlayStation classic games and the ability to stream PS5 games from the cloud.
  • Xbox Game Pass: All games being developed for the Xbox Series X/S consoles are included with a Game Pass subscription ($12 per month for a PC or console, $19 a month for both and EA Play).
  • Nintendo: Nintendo Switch Online (annually $25 individual or $45 family), gives access to classic games from the NES, Super NES, and Game Boy. Get it with an Expansion Pack (annually $64 individual or $100 family) for access to N64 and Game Boy Advance games, Sega Genesis games, as well as extra content for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Animal Crossing: New Horizons. N64 classics Harvest Moon 64, 1080-degree Snowboarding, and Jet Force Gemini have just been added to the library.
  • Netflix: While most people think of a Netflix subscription being about movies and television, the company’s library of games you can play on Android and iOS devices continues to grow. Hades and an anniversary edition of Braid are among titles coming soon, as are games based on Chicken Run and Shadow and Bone. Between $6 and $21 a month.
