7 Awesome Games to Buy this Black Friday

Uncharted Lost Legacy

Now’s the time to pick up one or more of these amazing Xbox One, PS4, and PC titles.

Black Friday is upon us, people! And yeah, while we know it’s a somewhat over-inflated, fiasco of consumerism, it is a good opportunity to score on some decent deals. We’ve rounded up some of the best games on the market that you should consider when doing your Black Friday shopping:

Devil May Cry 5

Available on: PS4 | Xbox One | PC

While ‘style over substance’ is often a route many games take, Devil May Cry 5 manages to deliver both in heaps, bringing one of the smoothest and reactive combat systems around, along with stunning visuals and a surprisingly interesting story that’ll catch fans and newcomers off-guard. Devil May Cry returns in stunning form with its fifth primary entry.

God of War

Available on: PS4

Hack ‘n slash fans that progressed through the original God of War trilogy probably won’t argue if we say that the first three games were heavy on the enjoyable action gameplay, but a little bit light on story. God of War’s 2018 reimagining of Kratos inserted into Norse rather than Greek mythology remedies that problem brilliantly, creating an exemplary story between father and son, perfectly melded into the gory and smooth hack ‘n slash action that the franchise became renowned for in its previous entries.

Marvel’s Spider-Man

Available on: PS4

Like God of WarMarvel’s Spider-Man was one of the best games of 2018 and a must-buy for any Spidey fan. Spider-Man manages to break the bad superhero genre curse admirably, combining the best of past Spidey games’ platforming and world-traversing mechanics with a layered combat system, engaging story, and well-fleshed out narrative. Although there are some minor faults, Spider-Man is the best superhero game since the Arkham series – and hopefully it won’t be the last.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Available on: PS4 | Xbox One | PC

Shadow of the Tomb Raider isn’t just another addition to the Tomb Raider library of jungle-exploring adventures – it’s a much-needed progression for the character and gameplay mechanics that remind us of why we love this franchise so much, while throwing in some exciting new elements and putting a focus of narrative and story, resulting in one of the best Tomb Raider games to date.

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy

Available on: PS4
How much does it cost? Find the best price here.

While it may initially appear it, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is anything but an expansion/DLC for Uncharted 4. This is a fully-fledged Uncharted game, and not to mention one of the best of the bunch – and that’s saying a lot. Admittedly, there’s no denying that a little something is missing with the absence of series protagonist, Nathan Drake, but the anti-heroines and expanded ideas do confirm that there’s life in the Uncharted series beyond Nathan Drake, full of climbing, gunfights, emotional story beats, and high-octane action.

Mass Effect: Andromeda

Available on: Xbox One | PS4 | PC

Yeah, Mass Effect: Andromeda had some bad press around its somewhat strange facial animations, but that aside, it’s actually an incredibly solid game and great entry in the Mass Effect series. New toys, from a jetpack to a rock-climbing off-roading vehicle, Andromeda will keep you glued to your seat for weeks. Improvements, including more fluid movement and combat, is a refreshing boost in pace, along with the ability to assign skills to any type of playstyle, rather than having to pick a class from the get-go.

The Evil Within 2

Available on: Xbox One | PS4 | PC
How much does it cost? Find the best price here.

The Evil within 2

The Evil Within was a surprise hit when it released in 2014, and the follow-up expanded on the somewhat linear, survival-horror formula by throwing players into bigger environments and trickier enemies, while refining the stuff controls from the first game. The story is a bit all over the place (as is with most of Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami’s games), but it does manage to come together when things start wrapping up. For fans of Resident Evil 4, Dead Space or The Last of Us, this is a great addition to your nightmare fuel this Black Friday.
