How to choose a video game

Even with the range of video game deals that are available online, games aren’t cheap. Also, with next-generation consoles being backward compatible with previous-generation games, you have access to a daunting library of titles that have steadily grown over the past several years. If you want to make the most out of your gaming budget, you should have a clear idea of what you can buy for your console, and what kind of games that you want to spend your time and money on.

Console exclusives should be among your primary targets when buying games, as they are the primary difference between the PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch. Examples include Marvel’s Spider-Man, God of War, The Last of Us Part II, Ghost of Tsushima, and Final Fantasy VII Remake for the PlayStation; Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Halo 5: Guardians, Sea of Thieves, Gears 5, and Forza Motorsport 7 for the Xbox; and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for the Nintendo Switch.

There are games that are available on multiple platforms, and choosing among them depends on your preferred genre. If you like exploring open-world environments, you might want to check out Red Dead Redemption 2, Final Fantasy XV, and Cyberpunk 2077. For fans of first-person shooters, you can’t go wrong with Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Doom Eternal, and Overwatch. For sports enthusiasts, cheer for your favorite teams and athletes on NBA 2K21, Madden NFL 21, and MLB The Show 20. If you want adrenaline-pumping action, try Devil May Cry 5, Resident Evil 3, and Control.

Once you’ve found a few games that have piqued your interest, you should check out reviews to make sure that you’ll like their story, gameplay, and other details. You might also want to check out trailers and gameplay videos online for these particular games, so you won’t be disappointed once you purchase and load them up in your console. Be very careful when choosing the videos you’re going to watch though, as you wouldn’t want to unnecessarily come upon some spoilers.

Lastly, and perhaps the most determining factor of the games that you buy, is your budget. This is why it’s important to always search for video games, as discounts will determine whether you can only buy one new game or multiple titles at a time. It’s a good thing that video game deals aren’t stopping even with the release of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, so gamers should keep taking advantage of them for the near future.
