The Game of the Year Awards are inching closer and thanks to Black Friday 2022 deals on video games, you can score some of these incredible titles at the cheapest price they’ve ever been. Intrigued? Read on.

2022 has been an intense year for the gaming industry and it has truly delivered some masterpieces in the process. Marking somewhat of a return to business-as-usual after the pandemic, developers have delivered some instant classics. We’ve seen some AAA innovations, sequels and indie-developed darlings capable of standing on their own against some of the biggest titles in the industry.

In February, the highly anticipated Elden Ring, the brainchild of author George R. R. Martin (Game of Thrones) was released and received instant critical acclaim with a score of 96 on Metacritic. Forbes wrote: “Elden Ring is a stunning achievement from a literal video game architecture perspective, along with creating a difficult but not wildly punishing game that everyone, even non-Soulsborne devotees, should be able to enjoy. I have not been this impressed with an open world since Skyrim, and Elden Ring even surpasses that in many ways. It’s an easy game to recommend to anyone and everyone, and deserves the explosive sales success we’ve seen, dwarfing old FromSoft records.” Then, there was Horizon Forbidden West, the follow-up to 2017’s Horizon Zero Dawn, which GameRant said was “step above its fellow open world games because it goes out of its way to ensure that everything is worth doing, not just the main story.” What’s more, you can score some of 2022’s greatest titles at a massive discount. Here are the best Black Friday video game deals.

It’s the United States following a cataclysmic event. You play as a glorified courier, Sam (Reedus) tasked with delivering supplies to isolated colonies and reconnecting them. Some call it a masterpiece, others call it slow, but either way you look at it, at $19.99, you’re saving a massive $30. Go see what all the fuss is about.

UNCHARTED

There’s nothing much more fun than following the adventures of Nathan Drake, the history-obsessed treasure hunter in the UNCHARTED series. This Legacy of Thieves Collection
includes two critically-acclaimed games: UNCHARTED 4: A Thief’s End and UNCHARTED: The Lost Legacy, meaning for just $19.99 you’re getting two games for the price of one—and at a $30 discount.

Elden Ring

A real Game of the Year contender, the epic Elden Ring from FromSoftware is the perfect intro to the Souls-like genre for newbies. Its open-world environment is absolutely gorgeous, encouraging exploration like never before. Tackle formidable foes with the strategic combat FromSoft is best known for, in a fantasy world that only George R. R. Martin (Game of Thrones) could create. Best of all, this quick classic is cheaper than usual, at $35 down from $59.99.

Resident Evil Villagea

If you love the survival-horror genre, there’s never been a better time to get into the Resident Evil series with Resident Evil Village, the latest installment in the franchise. It’s the eighth game overall in this critically acclaimed series, picking up straight after the events of the seventh. But you don’t have to have played all the others as Village can be enjoyed on its own.

Elden Ring Xbox

A real Game of the Year contender, the epic Elden Ring from FromSoftware is the perfect intro to the Souls-like genre for newbies. Its open-world environment is absolutely gorgeous, encouraging exploration like never before. Tackle formidable foes with the strategic combat FromSoft is best known for, in a fantasy world that only George R. R. Martin (Game of Thrones) could create. Best of all, this quick classic is significantly cheaper than usual, at $35 down from $59.99.

The Quarry

More an interactive movie than a video game, The Quarry
 is a survival-horror game set at a school camp, where nine teenage counselors are plunged into an unpredictable night of terror. Over the course of the night, you play as each of the nine characters and, depending on your choices, some of them may not make it through til sunrise. This game flew under the radar a bit when it first came out so it’s at a 72% discount, there’s never been a better time to try it. It’s Just $17 down from $59.99.

Guardians of the Galaxy

The first time Square Enix forayed into the Marvel Universe with Marvel’s Avengers, it… didn’t go so well. The game wasn’t well received by critics or players. It’s unfortunate because those negative reviews tainted what would be a really fantastic release in Guardians of the Galaxy: no microtransactions, no multiplayer, and a great story. According to a review by IGN: “Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy nicely balances a goofy, action-filled adventure with some genuinely heartfelt story moments, and the choices you’re given can add some surprising personal twists to your particular playthrough.” You can get it for $14.99 down from $59.99, which is a saving of 75%. Huge.

Madden 23

For the football fan, you can’t miss Madden NFL 2023 with, for the first time, its namesake coach John Madden on the cover. The game introduces the all-new FieldSENSE Gameplay System, which provides the foundation for consistent, ultra-realistic gameplay, and equips players with more control at all positions in every mode. Score this iconic title for $29.99, which is $40 (57%) off the original price.

Shadow of the Tombraider

Likely the last in the Tombraider reboot series (though surely not the final ever in the franchise) comes Shadow of the Tombraider from Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix. IGN said the environments “deliver a wonderfully eerie atmosphere too. An omnipresent cult, an unnerving, string-based score, and an aggressive subterranean enemy type, The Yaaxil, mean Shadow of the Tomb Raider frequently feels like a horror game, which makes for wonderfully tense exploration as you wade through mountains of bodies or hear an animalistic growl in the distance. Once again, there’s that clever homage being paid to the 1996 original; in this instance to its weird, psychedelic heart.” Get your hands on it for just $17.99, down from $24.99.
