Brand New Videogames at Fingal Libraries

It’s that time of year when gamers are making a list, checking it twice, then checking and revising it frequently because it’s just so hard to decide what game you want Santy to bring. As well as the fear of missing out, there’s the ever-present anxiety that the game we’ve been pining for won’t live up to expectations. By New Year, it might be back in the box, forgotten, mildly resented, doomed to be forever unplayed. Whether you’re planning a gift for yourself, your significant other, or for a wide-eyed child, wouldn’t it be so much easier if you could try the new games before shelling out €€€s for them?

It can be hard to know what game to play next. Many games are expensive and, if you don’t like the game, you have lost out. Library games are a great way to try before you buy, or to try something new and different that you may not have considered before. If you’re feeling unsure, or if you feel lost in the world of videogames, we’re here to help.
