Black Friday is almost upon us! It's the most glorious shopping day of the year and it promises tons of discounts on games, consoles, accessories and more. This Friday we'll see hundreds of games discounted to all-time low prices; but, for those of you on a budget, you'll have to pick and choose which deals to take advantage of. With that in mind, here are five absolute must buy games this Black Friday.
A sequel to Respawn Entertainment 's 2014 ground-breaking first-person shooter, Titanfall 2 builds upon the already solid foundation of face-paced movement mixed with fluid gameplay. Taking feedback from its predecessor into account, Titanfall 2 offers a deeper single-player campaign, while retaining, and even improving, on the multiplayer elements that made the first game so much fun. And yes, Titans are still fun as hell. This Black Friday, you can find Titanfall 2 on most store shelves priced between $35 and $40, with a low of $27 at Walmart.
For those of you who prefer a more traditional FPS experience, Battlefield 1 is probably for you. EA bucked the trend of futuristic sci-fi shooters, opting instead to explore World War I. Battlefield 1 makes tremendous strides with its campaign, ditching the standard single story campaign in favor of six separate "War Stories," each shown through the eyes of separate soldiers from different nationalities. Aside from teaching you the basics to prepare for the multiplayer portion of the game, the campaign successfully evokes the somber tone of The Great War. Of course, Battlefield 1's bread and butter is its multiplayer, and sticking to its roots, it emphasizes teamwork, large scale battles, and massive destruction. Battlefield 1 can be had for as low as $27 at Walmart this Black Friday, with most other retailers discounting it to $35-$40.
Bloodborne remains one of the best PlayStation 4 exclusives available. That is if you enjoy extremely challenging, sometimes frustrating gameplay. The sheer unforgiving brutalness of Bloodborne will likely turn some of you away, but it remains one of the most compelling games available for the console — and rarely will you find a game on the market that provides as rewarding a feeling when you beat it. Okay, maybe Dark Souls 3 ($15 at Walmart). Both can be found for around $15 this Black Friday at Best Buy and Target
Considered by many to be last year's game of the year, Fallout 4 can be found for around $20 this Black Friday, with Target offering the low at $15. Considering the sheer amount of gameplay hours you'll spend exploring the post-apocalyptic setting of "The Commonwealth," this action RPG offers incredible world depth and player freedom, and a massive amount of content. And with multiple ways to play and various paths to choose from, the numerous playthroughs guarantee it's money well spent.
Overwatch is undoubtedly one of this year's best games, offering fast-paced, team-based gameplay that borrows elements from traditional First-person shooters and MOBAs. Polished gameplay and solid mechanics, make Overwatch one of the better team-based shooters available this Black Friday, and you can get it for $35 at Best Buy, Target, Walmart, Shopko and GameStop (this retailer will give you a free figure with the game).
These are just a few of the games available at a discount this Black Friday. Let us know what's on your list in the comments below.
