Persona 5 | Price:
$59.99 – $29.99 |Best Buy
When we reviewed Persona 5 earlier this year, we stated that ATLUS, the publisher, decided to change the status quo, and gave us an adventure unlike any other. We also stated that their latest story breaks some tradition for the franchise, but it does not take away its core elements. It’s a game that is both fun, enlightening, and sees players taking on the life as a group of high school students that seek to take on a threat unlike any before within the franchise. This game tells the tale of four specific students in an adventure about righting wrongs that been been done, and most-of-all, changing hearts of those whom did the wrong deeds they had done.

The Evil Within 2| Price:
$59.99 – $24.99 |Best Buy
The Evil Within 2, in our review, was considered one of the best horror-survival in recent years and even completely reinvented itself for the better. Standing out as a semi-open world experience, The Evil Within 2 is a strong recommendation for folks wanting a solid title that has a lot to offer for those daring to take on its creepy monster infested world while searching for their characters daughter.

This time around they’ve decided to turn in their Dungeons and Dragon’s manuals in and decided to become a few super heroes solving the mysteries of South Park itself.

Looking to obtain one of the most realistic racing experiences ever? Then look no further. Project Cars 2 should be right up your alley. It’s one of the strongest titles out there and brings quite a bit to the table for racing fans to enjoy. Rated as one of our top favorites of the year, we have to highly suggest it, and recommend it for those enthusiasts who love cars, but don’t want to spend the money to work on them day in and out. We also suggested that it’s one of the best looking games of the year that fans should be enjoying inside and out.
There’s a lot of hard-to-recommend titles out there, but because many of these are brand new releases; we couldn’t help, but recommend the most recent releases at highly discounted prices. If these are for you, stay tuned for our next list as we will be suggesting gifts outside of video games for fans to look forwards to when shopping later this week.
