The PlayStation Store has a massive sale for fans looking for new games at a great price, but what are some of the best choices available?
Sony’s PlayStation has a wide assortment of titles that span multiple genres and have even contributed to reinvigorating classic franchises. Its catalog is rife with blockbuster hits and massive franchises that have withstood the test of time. However, considering that some of these games are much older now or may be too pricey for many gamers’ budgets, sales are almost a necessity.
Now, with the PlayStation Store’s ‘Games Under $20’ sale underway, this is the best time to take advantage of everything that’s out there. However, with the sale lasting only until February 2nd, picking and choosing the best titles may be difficult and overwhelming. That said, here are some entries that players won’t regret in the least once purchased.
Marvel’s Spider-Man: GOTY Edition Puts a New Spin on the Superhero Game
On sale for $15.99 (regular price $39.99; 50% off)
The character of Spider-Man has covered multiple mediums, from comic books to films. However, the video game genre is another path to which he is accustomed. That said, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Game of the Year Edition manages to do the impossible and reignite interest in the character’s video game roots. Not only is the gameplay perfect in letting players feel like the Wall Crawler, but its story also carries twists on established origins and characters and brings totally new elements to the mythos. Now, players on a budget can experience the game and its many features, including its DLC missions, before the highly anticipated sequel drops.
God of War: Digital Deluxe Edition Is the Perfect Starting Point Before Ragnarök
On sale for $14.99 (regular price $29.99; 50% off)
God of War was a PlayStation mainstay way back in the PlayStation 2 era of the console. However, God of War (2018) reinvented the wheel and offered a new, more relatable side to Kratos. Facing Norse Gods with a son and a new combat system, even seasoned players had to unlearn past entries and delve into something new. With God of War Ragnarök here, it’s a great time to revisit this game, and the Digital Deluxe Edition includes a dynamic PS4 theme and the Exile’s Guardian Shield Skin and Death’s Vow armor for Kratos and Atreus.
Resident Evil 2 Is a Modern Update to a Classic Video Game
On sale for $9.99 (regular price $39.99; 75% off)
The Resident Evil franchise has been a mainstay for horror games for years. However, as the years progressed, the series leaned more into action adventure. However, with the Resident Evil 2 remake, everything changed as modern gameplay mechanics were brought to a classic game. Following the journey of Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield, players return to Raccoon City and fight off zombies and mutants with updated graphics and gameplay. However, with the updated mechanics, the enemies are also more clever, thus adding a new level of fear to the survival horror title.
Days Gone Is a Perfect Blend of Action and Horror
On sale for $15.99 (regular price $39.99; 60% off)
Games like The Last of Us seemed to corner the market on post-apocalyptic games involving infected individuals and the drive to survive. While Days Gone may seem like something of a copy of The Last of Us, its gameplay and story are anything but. Following an outbreak that mutates infected individuals, biker Deacon St. John fights to survive with his close friend by doing jobs and collecting bounties. However, his drive to prove his wife is still alive puts him on a dangerous journey. Players may not be pulled into the game at first, but the story becomes incredibly magnetic, and the gameplay makes the scariest moments all the more thrilling.
Tomb Raider Brought Grit to the Classic Action Adventure Franchise
On sale for $4.99 (regular price $19.99; 75% off)
Tomb Raider is a PlayStation classic that has been beloved by adventure fans since the ’90s, but when the 2013 remake was released, Tomb Raider showed that Lara Croft could still grow and evolve. In this case, the story was an origin for the hardcore explorer she would eventually become, as it saw a young Lara go through the school of hard knocks and deal with the rigors of survival and combat after being stranded on an island. By using weapon upgrades and a sandbox map, players could create their perfect version of Lara that used resources to make weapons and utilized traversal similar to Nathan Drake. At $4.99, this AAA smash hit is a steal.
