6) Star Wars: Battlefront II
There I've said it! Ok, we all hate micro-transactions, because the game feels more like a something you would find on your mobile or tablet as opposed to a game on a £400 console. But, at the end of the day it's a gorgeous Star Wars game, which means its worthwhile – right? Although the campaign was disappointingly short (4-5 hours to be precise), the actual story line and writing was done to a tee by the developers. Iden's story was magnificent, and it is difficult to deny that it was fun to see how the Galactic Empire crumbled into its demise after the death of Emperor Palpatine. Moreover, I don't think the multiplayer is actually too bad especially now that EA have reduced the cost of heroes. This change then makes the game feel a lot less intimidating and more rewarding – which is a step in the right direction for the game itself. However, due to a multitude of factors, mainly the micro-transactions, it cannot be any higher than sixth on this list, and with the way reviews for Battlefront II are going the game looks set for a discount to attract more players. But, even with all the criticism of the game I like it – feel free to look at me with disgust.
5) Fallout 4
Was you expecting this one? Some of you may have. If you haven't played Fallout 4 it is a absolutely fantastic role-playing RPG, produced by Bethesda Studios (who also develop the Elder Scrolls series). The game is set in a post-nuclear war wasteland in Massachusetts where your character is tasked with finding your son, after he was kidnapped by two mysterious figures. I personally adore this game, but unfortunately, many players seem to criticise this game for not being good enough, and of course falling into the trap that so many games do and not living up to its exception. Admittedly, the games does have its faults, like the bugginess and lack of sharpness compared to its rival titles, and the infinite amount of dull quests from Preston Garvey (God, I hate that man). But besides that, this a great game, which is definitely worth purchasing if on a Black Friday Deal.
4) Uncharted: Nathan Drake Collection
If you have read my previous articles which ranked the Uncharted series, you can probably tell I'm a bit of a fan of the series – to this day Uncharted 2: Among Thieves remains one of my favourite games of all time. Uncharted is your classic treasure hunter game, where the main character, Nathan Drake (voiced by Nolan North) is out to find fortune and glory by discovering hidden riches, but it's never quite that simple – is it?. This collection includes the first three games of the series: Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception. All of the games included have been remastered by the developers Naughty Dog and due to the collection being out for a little while, there is a high chance that some sites may discount it for Black Friday. In addition, the Uncharted series is well worth a play, and with it being a PlayStation exclusive – that's even better.
Little bit surprised to see this on the list? Well, if you are you shouldn't be. Bloodborne has won multiple accolades, including the British Academy Games Award for Game Design, and continues to be a popular game amongst PS4 owners – remaining the 7th best selling game on the PS4. Set in a gothic environment Bloodborne is an action role-playing video game developed by FromSoftware and allows you to combat your nightmares – sounds pretty cool right?. In addition, it is evident that players can unite upon the fact that the game is incredibly tough and requires a great degree of patience. So, if your not like me and haven't finished the game yet – I salute you. Similar to Fallout 4 and Uncharted: Nathan Drake Collection the game has been out for a little while, so the chance of a Black Friday for Bloodborne looks rather likely.
2) Telltale's – The Walking Dead Collection
A couple weeks ago, I received a press release in my mail box regarding the release of the The Walking Dead Collection by Telltale Games. I was super thrilled to see that all of the Walking Dead games made by Telltale were coming into one, due to it being an amazing game. Although this game, is not out until the 8th of December (that's my Christmas sorted), it is likely the game will receive a discount near Christmas – so keep a close eye out.
1) Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered
COD 4 is to this day still one of my favourite games. Like many gamers out there, COD 4 was the game that engrossed me into the series, which has become a somewhat of a disappointment over recent years. The non-remastered Modern Warfare was released back in 2007, and spawned a great sequel Modern Warfare 2 (which is rumoured to be in development for a 'Remastered Edition'), as well as being the inspiration to the best World War 2 FPS – World at War – which still trumps Call of Duty: WW2 in my opinion. Despite it being a debate for another time, I just look at the COD series and think how did it go wrong? How did we go from the beautifully crafted Call of Duty: Modern Warfare to a series dominated by ten year olds? Such a shame. When the remastered version was announced, fans were excited to see that developers, Infinity Ward, had done something fans had been demanding for some time. The game is great, and gives us the opportunity to reminisce at what the Call of Duty series once was, making a necessity for Black Friday.
Now that you have made it to the end of the article, let me know your thoughts and feelings towards my choices, do you agree or disagree my choices? Have any of my choices gone onto your Black Friday list? Or, have I just got it all wrong? Please do let me know.
