If you haven't got it yet, it needs to be under your Christmas tree. The other is Destiny 2, an absolute force in co-op PvP action. Which would you rather receive as a gift, PUBG or Destiny 2?

Round 1: Fight 3 - PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds v Destiny

This time last year, the vast majority of gamers had never even heard of PUBG, let alone bought it. Now you can't move for chatter about Brendan 'PlayerUnknown' Greene's battle royale game. Like anything that becomes obscenely popular, it's become trendy to hate on it/ That should be a measure of its success, more than anything, and PUBG is undeniably a fun time. This Christmas could hardly be a better time to celebrate a winner winner turkey dinner, and the gift of PUBG is fun for all the (over 18) family.

Destiny 2 meanwhile is the co-op players dream come true. If you're planning to have a family get together of gamers, you can do little wrong than having a blast through Destiny 2 as a fireteam. A word of warning though - if anything is going to spoil Christmas it's attempting the Leviathan Raid after a strong batch of Sherry. 

Vote for your pick below, and remember to get involved in the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti giveaway above.

Our favourite comments:

Hmm. $30 unfinished game that gets new stuff added somewhat often, or $60 game that takes content away from you after you pay. Tough choice.

I think Destiny is a far funnier game and better choice overall. But I would not stray from either game ;)

I'll give it to PUBG because the multiplayer is better tbh, plus I hate Destiny 2, that game is pure garbage.

Destiny 2 is better imo, never really understood why people liked Pubg so much pretty boring when I played it, not to mention ugly and buggy.

Well PUGB looks like a fun multiplayer game. It's one of the best choices if you want to play cooperatively with friends.
