This gift giver may have actually gotten more than she bargained for: "I was finally able to get my husband the PS5, so this game was amongst the five games that I bought him...and I haven’t seen him since Christmas because he has hidden away with this game, LOL, but he is happy."
'Far Cry 6' for Xbox Series X
With Giancarlo Esposito headlining as an(other) unforgettable villain, Far Cry 6 comes out swinging with a huge cast. It's the biggest adventure yet, and you can join the revolution to free the nation of Yara and fight against the forces of Anton Castillo, the man who rules the nation with an iron grip. Trust us, you won't forget the experience — but parents, note that this one is absolutely not for the kids.
"The best installment yet of a great game franchise!" said one happy fan. "They outdid themselves on this one, especially with Giancarlo Esposito's acting as the main 'bad guy.' I'm loving this game!"
'Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy' for PlayStation 5
Though they aren't the same voice actors as the MCU, this version of the Guardians is well-acted and fun. You'll have a blast fighting your way through hordes of enemies and stepping into Star Lord's jet boots. Right now, it's on sale for just $20 — an absolute steal.
"Definitely recommend getting this game. I'm still playing it and having a blast! A whole lot better than Square Enix's last marvel game Marvel's Avengers. But it is really fun and if you like Guardians of the Galaxy or just never cared for them this game will make you love them even more!" said one happy gamer.
'The Last of Us Part II' for PlayStation 4
If you've been bingeing The Last of Us (and who hasn't?), you might feel the itch to play the game for yourself. Well, now is a great time to jump onboard — you can snag the sequel for just $25 at Walmart. And if you're a mega fan, the original TLOU just rereleased on PlayStation 5 with updated graphics.
"Absolutely love this game. I beat it in less than one week. Great gameplay, the graphics are amazing. Although the way it ended shocked me a little, it makes me think there will be a Part III. That makes me happy," said one gamer.
'Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales' for PlayStation 5
Marvel's Spider-Man was one of the best games of the year when it released, so this "sequel" (we say in quotes, since it's kind of a spinoff) was much anticipated — and it doesn't disappoint! Swing your way through New York City and save it from a new and dangerous threat. This entry is a bit shorter than the original, but has all of the action-packed fun fans could ask for.
"This is the best game I have ever played in my life," said one very impressed fan. "Marvel's Spiderman: Miles Morales has great graphics and an awesome storyline. The game really gives you a blast and I 100% recommend it."
'Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope' for Nintendo Switch
With nine characters to choose from, you can build a team of three to help you fight the forces of evil and save the galaxy by rescuing the scattered Sparks. Utilize cover, employ unique abilities and think through every move — you can be sure your enemies will, too!
It's even impressive to people who aren't fans of strategy games. "This game was loads of fun. I never played the first one and thought that I'd be lost and clueless on certain aspects of the game, but it's its own standalone story. Each of the characters and star Sparks have unique abilities, so playing is a breeze. Turn-based strategy usually bores me and feels like a drag, but this game was fun and accessible."
'Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga' for Nintendo Switch
Like Lego? Like Star Wars? Then putting the two of them together is a surefire win. Play through the story of Star Wars and experience every planet in a whole new way. Explore different lands and pilot all the different vehicles with one of literally hundreds of playable characters.
"Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is one of those games that you pick up and don't want to put down.... like, ever! The newest game in the long-running Lego series offers players the chance to play across nine Star Wars movies. Travel across 20 iconic planets with hundreds of unlockable characters and vehicles as well as action-packed battles and epic cut scenes!" said one ecstatic fan.
'Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes' for Nintendo Switch
Anyone who's a fan of Fire Emblem: Three Houses can get more of the universe they love in this musou-style interpretation. Fight your way across massive battlefields with action-adventure gameplay. Don't worry, though; it doesn't do away completely with that classic Fire Emblem strategy — employing unique twists on gameplay to keep you on your toes.
One player said, "This game is a fantastic addition to Fire Emblem: Three Houses lore. If you enjoyed Three Houses and don't mind a small mixture of warriors gameplay, this is a must-play. This game also would have been welcome as a mainstream Fire Emblem title."
'Sonic Frontiers' for Nintendo Switch
This is a brand-new interpretation of Sonic the Hedgehog in an open-world setting. So if you're a fan of Sonic-style 3D platforming, this is the game for you. If you're a fan of Sonic-style 2D platforming, this is also the game for you. It's got a bit of something for everyone.
One fan called this a new era of Sonic. "I'm still in the middle of playing this game, but the level design is mostly well-thought-out and the character interactions are so much better now than in years past. There are true connections from Sonic to each one of the characters, and the boss fights are an interesting, outlandish take. However, it works well with what this story conveys. Highly recommend!"
'Mario Kart 8 Deluxe' for Nintendo Switch
Start your engines! If you need a game that's approachable (and appropriate) for all ages, look no further than Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Originally launched on the Wii U, this hit cart racer is back with a huge amount of content. The bonus map packs bring back courses from a wide range of Mario Kart games and ensure you won't get bored anytime soon.
"This is by far my son’s favorite game on the Switch. The graphics are amazing and the choices of cars and characters is fantastic. There so many more courses and so many variations — it is simply awesome. Highly recommend this game," said one dad.
'Pokemon Violet' for Nintendo Switch
Will you choose the Fire Croc Fuecoco, the Water-type Quaxley or the Grass-type Sprigatito as your avatar? All three are adorable, and all three are viable options. Whichever you pick, you'll get a similar experience with both Pokémon Violet and Pokémon Scarlet. There are a few differences between the two, but that's part of the fun!
"This new open-world Pokemon game is awesome! I’ve been so busy exploring that by the time I hit my second badge my team was already in the level 60s 🤣. There are three storylines.... Highly recommend this new gen," said one gamer.
