The dust has settled, credit card balances are updated, and your packages have shipped – Black Friday and Cyber Monday have come and gone, and now you’ll have a backlog that’s just a little bit bigger (and a bank account a little bit smaller).
After our last Insta-Forum tackled what games we wanted to take on in our holiday backlog (after recovering from a turkey coma, of course), this time around we’re bringing our attention to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, which is usually the primetime of the year to indulge in picking up some of the year’s best games, or finally snagging that game you just didn’t get a chance to play from earlier this year.
Of course, if you need help deciding what to play, you can always check out our reviews for some of the biggest titles that released this fall, including Star Wars Battlefront II, Call of Duty: WWII, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, Assassin’s Creed Origins, Super Mario Odyssey, and many more.
Personally, I picked up Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and started that over the weekend, and truly have had a blast (especially since I was able to get it for 50% off on PC). I’m also looking to pick up South Park: The Fractured But Whole and Middle-earth: Shadow of War down the line, but right now I think it’s safe to say that I have more than enough to play right now (ie playing too much Stardew Valley on Switch).
So with that being said – what games did you pick up on Black Friday/Cyber Monday? What was your favorite purchase, and what games are you planning to dive into first?
