Holiday gift guide 2010: Four video games

2. Kirby's Epic Yarn ($49.99)

Navigating the colorful world of Kirby's Epic Yarn is like exploring a magical quilt. The game exudes a cuddly, adorable warmth; and, more literally, every object Kirby encounters resembles rich fabrics and careful embroidery. Players leap from stitch to stitch, unravel needlepoint monsters, and tug at loose seams to reveal secret passageways. This Nintendo Wii game is pretty easy. There are no deaths, no game-over screens. But with countless hidden treasures and bonus challenges, the game scales with you – making it easy to finish but difficult to complete.
