Prey – $24.99 ($35 off)
At a time when single-player adventures seem to be dying off, Bethesda is still doing the good work of providing gamers with intimate story-driven experiences.

Final Fantasy XV – $19.99 ($40 off)
Play the latest installment in Square Enix’s classic JRPG series for a new low price!
Buy Final Fantasy XV
Mass Effect: Andromeda – $15.99 ($4 off)
While not quite perfect – in fact, flawed in many cases – Mass Effect: Andromeda gives you what few current titles can: an RPG space adventure that mixes combat, exploration, and expansive lore into one worthwhile package. If you feel burned by the lack of Star Wars games on the market at the moment, this might be the next best thing.
Buy Mass Effect: Andromeda
Friday the 13th: The Game – $29.99 ($10 off)
Looking for a great family-friendly multiplayer game to play with your loved ones this holiday? This…isn’t the game. But if you like tons of gore and chasing your friends around as a mass murdering maniac, Friday the 13th is the game for you!

The must-have console of 2017 combined with one of the best games of the year. This bundle also comes with a carrying case! What else do you need to know?

Coolbaby Mini Console
Since Nintendo has seemingly gone out of its way to make their HDMI-ready NES and Super NES Classic consoles available to consumers, some people are taking matters into their own hands. Meet the Coolbaby Mini Console. It looks and plays like the NES Classic, but is actually easier to get. And, oh yeah, it also features 600 different games. (Mainly modded variations of a few different titles though like the Super Mario Brothers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles games). We don’t know if any of this is legal, but we can say that these things are up on Amazon, so yeah, there you go.

Star Wars Battlefront II
Microtransaction controversies aside, Star Wars Battlefront II is still the hottest video game of the holiday season. You want it. Your friends want it. This is all very understandable. So we don’t need to take up valuable Internet real estate telling you why its rad. Instead, here’s what we want to know: How come nobody ever made a Star Wars mod of the classic arcade game Tapper? Think about it, it could have Wuher the bartender racing around the Creature Cantina trying to serve drinks to the likes of Hammerhead (Nagamaroo!) and Walrus Man. In the background, Han could be seen shooting Greedo. This sounds like bliss. I mean, Battlefront II is clearly great, but 8-bit glasses of blue milk sliding down a bar? Where do we sign up?
Buy Star Wars Battlefront II
Super Mario Odyssey
In the interest of fairness here’s a non-dubious Nintendo-related offering: Super Mario Odyssey! The latest breakout game for the Switch gives Mario’s iconic hat a name (Cappy) and magical abilities (possession!), and is an enthralling universe of its own that is bold enough to have its cake and occasionally transform it into an 8-bit retro party too. The only problem is after a game this much fun – check out our review here – how can Mario possibly top himself? That’s a problem for another holiday season, because you’ll be too busy having fun playing to wonder.
Buy Super Mario Odyssey
Doom for Switch
Doom was one of the best shooters of 2015, bringing back classic run and gun gameplay with a gory upgrade. If you want to take your demon hunting on the go, you NEED to get this Switch port, which runs wonderfully and even features the online multiplayer mode!
