The day after Thanksgiving in America is known as Black Friday and on that day, stores go a little bit silly with their sales. We don’t have Thanksgiving but we do have cheap things. Whatever you think of the name, it’s more succinct than “that otherwise meaningless day where you can get cheap things.”
Name aside, a whole host of stores have been running ridiculous sales over the last week. It was inescapable.
More importantly, many of these sales are still on-going.
As someone that has been doing the patient gamer thing for a while now, it was good to see a number of older titles that were on my radar such as Ori and the Blind Forest on sale. It was even better to see more recent releases like NieR: Automata and Horizon Zero Dawn available for around $30-$40.
I snagged all of those games up, and a handful more. Then I spent most of my weekend smashing robots with a giant sword. It was a good weekend.
How did you fare in the sales? Get any good bargains? Was there anything you’d hoped to see sold for a pittance that was resolutely sitting on the shelf at full price?
