In case the massive hype over the XBox One and the Playstation 4 both being released just in time for the 2013 holiday season haven't clued you in, this is going to be a hot year for video games. More than half the population now cops to playing some sort of video game -- be it on a console or on their computer. So where do you even start this Black Friday to get everyone on your list squared away?
Here's a look at some of the hottest games for everyone in the family -- from Call of Duty Ghosts for the adults to Skylanders Swap Force for the kids -- so you can grab the best deals.

Much like Skylanders, Disney allows kids to turn a real-life toy into a character onscreen. But there's an extra attachment to these toys as they're all beloved Disney characters. The platformer sandbox game takes the movies kids know and love and lets them dive in, with literally days of play ahead of them. My daughter got this and hasn't stopped run out of stuff to do with just the characters in the starter pack!
Where to get the deals: Toys R Us has Disney Infinity Starter Pack for $37.50, while Wal-Mart has it for $38.96. The pack is $49.99 at Target, and GameStop is selling the Disney Infinity characters -- buy one, get one free.
