Amazon Prime Day is full of amazing discounts on some of the best games available, whether you’re looking for a Sony exclusive or a third-party title available on all platforms. Missed out on God of War or Resident Evil 2 when they came out? Now’s your chance to pick them up. Don’t miss out on any of these deals because you’ll be sure to regret it.
God of War
God of War is easily one of the best PlayStation exclusives of this generation, maybe even of all-time. Ditching Greek myth in favor of Nordic inspirations, God of War follows Kratos and his son Atreus through its dangerous world. It’s cinematic, and it’s touching, has superb action sequences, and fluid combat. What’s not to like?
Kingdom Hearts III
It was over a decade in the making and worth the wait for fans, but don’t be fooled by its name as countless spin-offs preceded Kingdom Hearts III. Sora makes one last effort to restore the light and defeat Master Xehanort with the help of his pals from across Disney’s franchises like Tangled, Big Hero 6, and more.
Friendly neighborhood hero
Superhero games don’t get much better than this and Marvel’s Spider-Man can certainly go head to head with the acclaimed Batman Arkham series. Peter’s been Spider-Man for several years now, but he faces his fiercest foes yet as the Sinister Six threaten his family, friends, and the rest of New York City. No pressure.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
Assassin’s Creed was never much of a role-playing series, but that changed with Assassin’s Creed Origins. After seeing its success, Ubisoft doubled down on those RPG aspects with Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Choose to play as either Alexios or Kassandra and take down the beginnings of the Templar Order in Ancient Greece.
Crash is back
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
Activision brought back Crash in all of his remastered glory with the N. Sane Trilogy, a compilation of the first three games in the classic platforming franchise. It’s just as hard as you remember it and looks better than it ever has. It’s paving the way for a whole new generation of Crash Bandicoot fans to learn the hard way the difficulty of older games.
Lara’s final adventure
Shadow of the Tomb Raider
Lara battled an ancient queen’s spirit on Yamatai and found the legendary city of Kitezh in Siberia, but she faces her greatest challenge yet. She must race to stop the Mayan apocalypse she inadvertently sets off. With time running out, she journeys to Central America in the hopes of finding the answers that will save the world.
Back with Bungie
Destiny 2: Forsaken – Legendary Collection
With Destiny back in Bungie’s hands, you can look forward to a lot of new content. Destiny 2 recently got a brand-new raid that seems only to be the start of what Bungie has in store for the title. The Forsaken Legendary Collection includes the entire Destiny 2 experience, from its first two expansions to Forsaken, all wrapped up into one package.
Resident Evil 2 Remake
Widely regarded as one of the best survival-horror games ever made, Capcom completely remade Resident Evil 2 to bring the graphics and gameplay up to today’s standards. It’s still as terrifying and exceptional as you remember it, this time everything’s just a hell of a lot gorier. Maybe you should play this one with the lights on.
Far Cry New Dawn
Far Cry 5 saw the nuclear devastation of Hope County and Far Cry New Dawn springs us 17 years into the future to see what’s became of its population. Some survivors have found safe havens in settlements, but others have taken it upon themselves to rule the land as rogue bandits. Oh, and your animal pals are all mutated now.
Metro Exodus: Day One Edition
Nuclear winter has made life outside the Metro impossible… or has it? You’ll find out for yourself what lengths the remains of humanity will go to to find a new home in Metro Exodus. Mutated creatures aren’t your only threat as radiation storms sweep across the landscape and cannibalistic groups stand in your way of freedom.
Spyro Reignited Trilogy
Like Crash Bandicoot before it, Spyro also received a remastered treatment to the first three classic games in its franchise. Older fans of the series or those wanting to introduce a new generation of fans won’t want to pass up the opportunity for playing this platformer at its discount price. Plus, how cool is a purple dragon?
So many zombies
Days Gone is all about zombies like Resident Evil 2, but it trades the horror and tension for more action. You’ll play as an ex-biker named Deacon St. John as he attempts to find out the fate of his wife after the pandemic spread. Of course, this is all the while taking out countless hoards along the way. One zombie is easy to kill. One thousand? Not so much.
Anthem: Legion of Dawn Edition
Anthem got a lot of (rightly deserved) criticism when it launched and even in the months following. Despite BioWare’s radio silence, the studio is hard at work, making an experience it can be proud of that players enjoy. If you were hesitant before, picking it up for $15 is a great deal as the combat and gunplay are still top-notch.
Take back Washington
Tom Clancy’s The Division 2
A viral pandemic has wiped out the population, and it’s up to our Division agents to rebuild the ruins. Explore Washington D.C. solo or go through it as a team and take on some of its endgame challenges in the Dark Zone. Whatever you decide, keep in mind that not every player you see is a friendly face. Stay sharp.
Dark Souls but make it harder
Sekiro Shadows Die Twice
Did you think Dark Souls was too easy? No. Well, FromSoftware sure doesn’t care. The studio went and made an even harder game where one false move spells your demise. Play as a shinobi who cheats death on a journey to save his young lord who was kidnapped by a rival clan. The boss battles are as intense and frustrating as ever.
You can’t go wrong with God of War is you prefer single-player games. The combat is impeccable, the story is moving, and the graphics are outright beautiful. You don’t even need to play the previous games in the God of War franchise to understand it. It’s entirely friendly to series newcomers.
If you want something to play with friends, pick up Destiny 2: Forsaken. You can’t beat the amount of content for the price you are playing, and Bungie is sure to add even more. Level up your Guardian, and you can even play its brutal raids.
