Dragon Ball Z has seen a ton of games in its lifetime. Many are not actually good and would be a huge diss to the DBZ fan in your life, though. So if you know a fan that also happens to be a gamer, stick to more recent releases when choosing a game. The Dragon Ball Z Budokai HD Collection for the PS3 is perfect as it includes Budokai 1 and Budokai 3 in a single bundle. They’re some of the best DBZ games to have ever come out.
More recently, you have Dragon Ball Xenoverse for the PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. While it’s pretty mediocre as a game (read our review here), it is the latest DBZ outing on consoles right now. For the portable gamer, there’s also Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden for the Nintendo 3DS. Again, not critically praised nor panned, but it’s the latest game available.
