Selecting the right Christmas gift can be a tricky business – especially if the person you're buying for is a video games character. Just in case you're shopping for Mario, Drake, Kratos or co, here's our guide.

Mario - A GPS tracker

The DNT GPS Tracker 2.0 (£116.72 at Play.com) is marketed at people who are worried about losing children or old people. Given that The Mushroom Kingdom appears to have a worse kidnap rate than the darkest, meanest corners of South America, we reckon that Mario would appreciate an easy way to locate Peach when she invariably goes missing. It'd put an end to that "the princess is in another castle" bullshit, too.

Wow. Hmm...
Not sure how I would live in a world where Sackboy had balls. In fact... I'm pretty sure that would be considered child porn? For shame....

You would buy Sackboy a Boysack? That's just wrong.

And Kratos now looks like Sacha Baron Cohen's gay Austrian fashion guru BrĂ¼no.

All in all, quite a giggle.

I dunno, Snake would probably appreciate a home entertainment system given how much time he spends watching...

Heh - regarding no. 6 - those huge TV boxes you see purposefully left out in a bragging style, imagine the shock the binman would get with Snake hiding within! :D
