These pre-owned games are so cheap they’re a must-buy

You can buy video games brand new, sure, but a lot of times the new prices don’t reflect the age of the game. You’ll have older games that rarely go on sale, or do, but the sale price isn’t all that great. The alternative is to grab used games, especially now that the industry has backed off on online licenses – you only have to buy the copy of the game now, not extra DLC, unless you want it. GameStop is one of the best places to go for pre-owned games, as you might expect.

Right now, they’re offering some amazing deals on pre-owned titles new and old. If you don’t want to pay full price, or you want a quick and cheap way to stock up your library, this is the perfect opportunity. You can get games like Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, Resident Evil Village, Skyrim Special Edition, or even Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, all for some pretty good prices. You can always peruse the sale yourself below, or check out our favorites picks!
