Animal Crossing: New Horizons and The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening for the Nintendo Switch are both marked down. Animal Crossing: New Horizons is a life-simulation, role-playing game (RPG) that lets you build and explore your own island. You'll also be able to do things like design your house, interact with the other people living on the island, and curate a museum with fossils you collect. Plus, we consider it to be among the most relaxing games you can play on the Nintendo Switch. Then there's The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, an open-world, action-adventure game in which, as Link, you find yourself in a land away from the kingdom of Hyrule, exploring Koholint Island, fighting enemies, and solving puzzles. And according to one shopper, "the mix of adventure, exploration, and puzzle solving is the best I've ever found."

And if you're looking for something that the whole family can get it on together, there's It Takes Two, an action-adventure game in which parents Cody and May transform into dolls and then need to overcome their differences and challenges together in order to find their way back to their daughter. Players work together to solve puzzles and there are even fun mini-games in between all the action.

PS5 games, such as Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut and Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, are also currently on sale. Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut is an action-adventure RPG in which you play as a samurai, and it's $40 off its original $70 price, so you can buy it for $30. Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales is an action-adventure game one shopper called "a must play" in which Miles Morales finds out he has explosive powers, and it's $30 off its original price, so you can buy it for just $20.

Elden Ring is an open-world action RPG, and it's one of the most popular and well-received games of 2022. You can currently save $20 on Elden Ring for the Xbox One and Xbox Series X, since it is marked down to $40 from its original $60 price. And if you're an Xbox user who's looking for a platform action-adventure game featuring an iconic blue hedgehog, Sonic Frontiers for the Xbox One and Xbox Series X is also discounted by $20, so you can add it to your video game library for $40 right now.

Best Gaming Systems Deals

  • Microsoft Xbox Series S Holiday Console, $249.99 (orig. $299.99) at bestbuy.com and target.com
  • Nintendo Switch + MarioKart 8 Deluxe Special Edition Bundle, $299 (orig. $399) at walmart.com 
  • Meta Quest 2 Resident Evil 4 Bundle with Beat Saber, $349.99 (orig. $399.99) at bestbuy.com and target.com
  • Arcade 1Up Atari Legacy 12-in-1 (Without Riser), $199 (orig. $315) at walmart.com
  • Arcade1Up Bandai Namco Pac-Mania Legacy Edition Arcade, $399.99 (orig. $499.99) at bestbuy.com
  • Arcade1Up Ridge Racer Stand Up Arcade, $299.99 (orig. $699.99) at bestbuy.com

The Microsoft Xbox Series S Holiday Console includes the Xbox Series S console and one Xbox Wireless Controller. Normally $300, the console is currently $50 off, so you can take it home for $250. A great thing about the Xbox Series S is that it's backward compatible, so if you owned an original Xbox, Xbox 360, or Xbox One, many of the games you purchased for and played on those systems can also be played on the Xbox Series S. That means you won't have to completely rebuild your gaming library if you want a new console. Keep in mind, however, the Xbox Series S does not have a disc drive, so you can only play digital game downloads on this system. 

The Nintendo Switch + MarioKart 8 Deluxe Special Edition Bundle is another great console deal. The now-$299 bundle comes with the Nintendo Switch, a digital version of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and a three-month Nintendo Switch Online Individual Membership. Altogether, these different components would normally cost you close to $400, so the bundle is value-friendly. And if you've been wanting to try out a VR headset, the Meta Quest 2 Resident Evil 4 Bundle with Beat Saber is $50 less than its original price. The VR headset comes with the VR rhythm game, Beat Saber, and the survival horror game, Resident Evil 4.

But modern gaming consoles aren't the only thing on sale. There are plenty of retro arcade cabinets on sale as well. The Arcade1Up Ridge Racer Stand Up Arcade comes with five games, including Ridge Racer, Ridge Racer 2, and Ace Driver, and it's marked down by an impressive $400 to a price of $300. One shopper called it "a great purchase," and added, "everyone who comes over to the house is immediately addicted to this game."

The Arcade1Up Bandai Namco Pac-Mania Legacy Edition Arcade is also on sale, discounted by $100 to a price of $400. It includes 12 different games, including Pac-Mania, Pac-Man, Galaga, Galaxian, and Dig Dug.

Looking to start streaming your gaming sessions? You may be in search of streaming accessories.
