Talk about a spring mix. The weather this time of year doesn’t know what it wants to be. We’re getting one gorgeous day followed by pounding rain. A sunny weekend, then a sudden temperature drop. So don’t beat yourself up if you’re still in winter-hunkering mode. Instead, why not make the most of your time indoors by queuing up some of your favorite video games?
In need of a new challenge? No problem: Walmart recently dropped some amazing deals on games for Xbox, Nintendo Switch and PlayStation. Below are some of our favorites — all killer, no filler! Sale prices start at just $15, with discounts as epic as 60 percent off. Scroll for our picks.
Red Dead Redemption 2
Are you a big fan of westerns? Do you ever wish you could ride horses, battle outlaws and roam the wide-open frontier? Well, Red Dead Redemption 2 will let you do just that, dropping you into a compelling story set in an open world where you call the shots. Fight bad guys, hunt animals and even play a few mini-games like poker and blackjack. You can even make friends with your horse.
Players are in love with this title, calling it “one of the best games ever made.” One player had this to say: “A very emotional journey and a highly entertaining and beautiful world to actually live in. I feel attached to the in-game world and characters. This is a generation-defining game.”
Microsoft Flight Simulator
Maybe you haven’t been flying much lately, but you’ll certainly see the world when you pick up a copy of Microsoft Flight Simulator for the Xbox Series X, which puts you in the cockpit. Travel to far away countries, brave real-time weather and get behind the yoke of some of your favorite aircrafts. You’re sure to be enchanted by the realism in this game, enough that it might sate your need for travel… or maybe just get you excited for the real thing!
Shoppers call it “as close to flying a real plane as you can get,” and add it’s “the flight game for anyone who wants realism that simply isn’t found in any other video games. From engine startup to taxiing to take off and landing, this is top-notch.”
Aviation nerds unite!
South Park: The Fractured But Whole
This might sound a little crazy, but this role-playing game based on the crude cartoon from Comedy Central is actually really good. The city of South Park is fun to explore, the dialogue is razor-sharp and there are great items to discover. The combat is also awesome. This package even includes the first game, The Stick of Truth, as a bonus! We can’t recommend South Park: The Fractured But Whole enough, and right now you can give it a shot for only $15.
Shoppers agree, with one saying “If you like the show, you’ll love the game. All the characters from the show coming together for a hilarious game that’s just a good time.” But even if you aren’t the biggest fan, The Fractured But Whole also “challenges your problem solving and analyzing skills,” and “it’s funny and there’s so much to do!” And you don’t have to wait for the next season to enjoy this adventure!
Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch
Do you like exploring expansive worlds, meeting strange and wonderful creatures and getting sucked in by a compelling story? Then Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is the game for you. It combines the charming animation style of movies like My Neighbor Totoro with the thrilling adventure you’d expect from a Zelda title, and right now it’s only $27 at Walmart — almost 50% off its original price of $50.
Players love Ni No Kuni, with one enthusiastic reviewer calling it “honestly the best game I’ve ever played. … I’m almost done with it now and I truly loved all the scenes it had.”
It’s a great way to spend the rest of April!
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Breath of the Wild is considered by many to be the best Zelda title yet, and one of the best Switch titles ever — so if you still haven’t picked a copy up, it’s not too late. Right now you can snap up this expansive, gorgeous adventure for only $40, a nice $20 discount.
Reviews are, predictably, glowing, with players calling it a “beautiful game with so much to do,” and “a great way to waste your time away.”
Even first-time players have a lot to say: “I’ve never played any Zelda games before, but I had a general idea of what they were like….I was kinda worried I wouldn’t understand or “get into it,” but I was wrong! So far the graphics and the open world has so much detail and epic views that I fell in love as soon as I looked over the mountain peak. If you’ve never played Zelda and you’re thinking about purchasing this game, do it!!”
New Pokémon Snap
New Pokémon Snap is a fantasy twist on a classic nature expedition, one where you ride in a pod around a variety of islands and take “photos” of Pokémon in their natural habitat. It’s fun, relaxing and beautiful, and can be enjoyed from the comfort of your couch.
One mom says it’s “a relaxing game,” and her daughter loves it, while another gamer says they’re “hooked.” They add, “It has all the nostalgia from the original but with way more incredible photo opportunities and so many new Pokémon. It’s far more in-depth and detailed as well. Great for adults and kids alike.”
It Takes Two
There are plenty of games about saving the world, but It Takes Two is all about saving a marriage — with a twist, of course. The titular married couple finds themselves turned into dolls and must survive a series of challenges around their own house with their own possessions. Can they work together despite their crumbling relationship? And what of their daughter, Rose, caught in the middle? This action-adventure game deals with big life questions in a very small world, and right now it’s on sale for only $20, a 50 percent discount.
Gamers love this title for its weird premise and engaging gameplay, with one player saying they were “really impressed with the design and creativity behind the game and mechanics. There are lots of unique co-op mechanics and things always get switched up to feel new. It never felt repetitive and I always look forward to playing. It has won a ton of awards and I can see why.”
It’s also a great couple’s game, as this wife attests: “This was the best purchase ever!! My husband and I played this, we always looked forward to our game time after work!! The story is great and boy was some of the in-game bickering spot on lol! 10/10 would recommend to play with your partner or friends!”
Assassin’s Creed Origins
The Assassin’s Creed games are incredible for their engaging action and attention to historical detail — it’s like playing an immersive history lesson! This title in the long-running series takes players all the way back to ancient Egypt, where you’ll get to explore tombs and pyramids while also discovering the origin of the Assassins’ brotherhood.
This is a great entry point into the series for all new players, and it’s perfect for kids thanks to a non-combat exploration mode that lets players delve deep into Egyptian history without worrying about getting killed. And right now you can save $44!
Kingdom Hearts All-in-One Package
If you haven’t heard of the franchise, Kingdom Hearts is an action-packed role-playing game where Disney meets Final Fantasy, and this collection has 10 of the games in the series collected together for one super low price. Kingdom Hearts All-in-One Package would be a great deal even at its PlayStation Store price of $100, but right now it’s only $29 on Walmart. That’s a crazy good deal, and your loved ones will dig playing with Mickey, Donald and Goofy, as well as meeting new friends like Sora and Riku.
Shoppers note it’s good for all ages, with one parent saying “My little one can even play it” and another enthusing “I bought Kingdom Hearts for my son, and he can’t stop talking about how much he is enjoying the game.” If the kids love it this much, it’ll certainly make a great addition to your own collection.
Honorable duels are great and all, but sometimes you just want to hack and slash your way through an epic adventure. In Godfall, each time you defeat an enemy, you’ll gain better weapons and armor. Oh, and you’re also trying to stop the apocalypse. It’s just all in a day’s work in this launch title for the PlayStation 5.
One happy shopper calls it “a great co-op game with lots of exploration and loot grinding. If you are someone that loves games where you beat up opponents…then this is the game for you.” And it’s a steal right now: just $20 at Walmart. It’s 50 percent off!
The Nioh Collection
If you love watching sweeping action-packed samurai dramas but always wished you could have taken part, the Nioh series is made for you. The first game follows the adventure of an Irish sailor who finds himself caught up between warring clans in 17th century Japan. Oh, and there are demons. This copy of the game was remastered to look better for the PlayStation 5, too. The second game is a prequel, and it’s also included in the set, so you’re basically getting two games for the price of one!
Are you a big fan of films like Groundhog Day and Palm Springs? You know, where the main character gets stuck living the same day over and over again until they get it right? Deathloop is like that too, except each day is an action-packed string of assassinations. Can you eliminate all eight targets before time is up? Or are you going to have do it again, learning from your mistakes? This was one of the best titles of 2021 and right now you can save $27 on it.
The reviews are glowing, too, with at least one player saying they “loved playing through the levels and piecing together the story, then finally having that moment where it all clicked and beating the game. Amazing voice acting. I enjoyed the aesthetic of the game as well. Highly recommend to PS5 owners.”
