Black Friday is in full swing, though in most ways it’s already been in full swing for weeks. The video game world is not exactly shy about the crush of the holiday season, and retailers, console manufacturers, developers and online store owners have been pushing a wild morass of discounts basically since the beginning of the month, and they’ll keep doing so for some time. And yet there are still special deals to be had only on Black Friday, and there’s also a pleasant ritual about the biggest day of spending that American society has to offer, everyone soaked in stuffing and red wine and trudging through the cold to stretch their gifting dollars as far as they’ll go, grabbing that one item they’ve had their eye on all year.
There’s plenty to work with in the world of video games, from hardware to software and accessories and more. You could probably get away with only buying games on Black Friday every year and still have more to play than you could get through before the next one rolls around.
