Cyber Monday does provide gamers the opportunity to capitalise on some notable deals, and with the past year or so delivering some great gaming titles, there are some under-appreciated games worth considering for your shopping cart.
We’ve been long advocates of promoting the sorely underrated Mafia franchise, and with the Mafia Trilogy on special from a number of retailers, you’ve got to dive in! While Mafia II: Definitive Edition isn’t the best remaster around, the completely built-from-the-ground-up remake of Mafia 1, along with the brutally awesome Mafia 3 included, this is well worth the entry price.
Red Dead Redemption 2
Red Dead Redemption 2 needs little motivation for a purchase at this point, and the highly-acclaimed title has received a discount this Cyber Monday. The slow-burn Spaghetti Western story is full of family uncertainty, revenge, and tests of loyalty, while the alluring gameplay mechanics of Dead Eye, the dynamic Euphoria physics engine, and stellar set-pieces all elevate the experience. It really manages to not only deliver, but perfect that Wild West immersion that so many other games have struggled to capture.
The Last of Us: Part II
The Last of Us: Part II will be a no-brainer of a purchase for most PS4 owners; however, the nature of the game is a harder-sell for more casual fans. Even with its brutality and mature elements, The Last of Us Part II is a must-play for every gamer, and an opus to an already-revered story. It may not inject that initial Last of Us novelty magic we first felt when booting up the original game, but it carries the torch excellently to round out a brilliant and harrowing tale of survival.
Resident Evil Village
Resident Evil 8: Village might look a little different, but it feels like a ‘greatest hits’ of the Resident Evil franchise, giving you all the little beloved bits and pieces that made the series a household name, while also throwing some serious curveballs in terms of creatures, setting, and tone. It’s a fantastic survival-horror experience that highlights how well the series has evolved over the years.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
If you haven’t played The Witcher 3 by now, the fact that it is under R100 should change that. There’s one word that’s fitting to round up the game colossal. It’s a game rich with story, content, and size. Often bigger isn’t always better, but The Witcher 3 manages to straddle that line between size and substance excellently. The result is an experience that succeeds in all departments and leaves you captivated from the opening moments. Every part of The Witcher 3 comes together like a well-oiled machine, delivering the open-world, monster-hunting extravaganza unlike any other.
