Holiday Special: Casual Competitive Gamers Gift Guide
Holiday season is here, if you are looking for some great game to gift to your casual competitive gamer friends, here I have a list of great games for them! All the games below feature a global and local friend’s leaderboard. So you want to dominate the chart, here are some great games you can spend your time doing so.
Personally, I love collecting my games on Steam, therefore I listed some great games with great deal on Steam. For Steam holiday discount, keep an eye on the Daily Deal featured everyday, and Winter and Summer discount every year. Most of the games get 50-75% discounts at that time. You will get to save some serious bucks and keep yourself or your friends happy.

This game might be old, but it has infinite replayability. Audiosurf is a music-adapting puzzle racer where you use your own music to create your own experience. The shape, the speed, and the mood of each ride is determine by the song you choose. You earn points for clustering together blocks of the same color on the highway, and compete with others on the internet for the high score on your favorite songs.
Each song has their own leaderboard, so you can either dominate the chart for all Pop song, or your own collection of songs!
