Some of the best games of 2022 are on sale during Prime Day
2022 has been an amazing year for gaming so far, but with so much coming out, it’s unlikely you’ve played it all. We’re in a slight lull in July, so this Prime Day is the perfect time to catch up on some of the best games of the year. Of Ring of Elden at Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Sagathese are some of the best games of the year that you should consider picking up during this year’s Prime Day deals sale event.
Ring of Elden
FromSoftware’s Ring of Elden is becoming one of the most important games of this generation, as it skillfully combines the formula of the Souls series with the open-world exploration of a game like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. While the game normally costs $60, it’s been discounted by 17-20%, depending on which platform you choose, so it’s the one you should definitely buy before the end of the year.
Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga
After several delays, TT Games is finally releasing Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga this year, giving us the biggest Lego game yet, as it adapts all nine Star Wars movies and gives players plenty of planets to explore. Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is normally $60, but has been reduced across all platforms for Prime Day. Check this one out if you’re a Star Wars fan or want something to play with your kids.
King of Fighters XV
If you’re looking for a new fighting game to learn the mechanics of, SNK King of Fighters XV is one of your best choices to check out because of its great graphics and fun-to-master gameplay. While it’s normally $60, King of Fighters XV has been reduced to $40 for Prime Day and will keep you busy for a while if you pick it up.
Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands Chaotic Great Edition
Gearbox adapted the Borderlands formula to a fantasy setting with The wonders of Tiny Tina, and that effort has paid off, as it’s still a colorful and fun shooter to play with friends. You can get current versions of Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands Chaotic Great Edition for just $70, and it’ll get you access to the base game, Dragon Lord Pack, and a season pass.
Sifu is an extremely intense and challenging martial arts game with a unique hook: you get older every time you die. It received positive reception when it launched in February and is currently one of the top indie games of the year. Sifu is normally $40, but you can save 20% with a coupon currently available on Amazon.
Stranger from Heaven: Final Fantasy Origin
Stranger from Paradise Final Fantasy Origin is a weird game. It’s a Soulslike Final Fantasy spinoff that serves as a prequel to the first game, but has a meme-worthy and oddly written story about a man named Jack who just wants to kill Chaos. Experiencing its wacky ending is one of the most memorable gaming experiences you can have this year, so it’s well worth checking out the game, 25% off on PS5 and Xbox Series X for Prime Day.
Shinji Mikami, the creator of Resident Evil, released his latest new IP this year. GhostWire: Tokyo is a first-person game where players explore Tokyo and use magic to battle ghosts. Ghostwire: Tokyo is 50% off for Prime Day, so fans of first-person horror and action games will definitely want to check this one out.
Dying Light 2
Although it’s been a bit drowned out by the slew of high-profile game releases this year, Dying Light 2 is still a great open-world zombie game with engaging first-person combat and parkour. Although it’s normally $60, you can pick up Dying Light 2 for $35 during Prime Day, so get it if you pass it in February to play Forbidden Horizon West Where Ring Elden.
Mario Strikers: Battle League
Even though it only came out a little over a month ago, Mario Strikers: Battle League is already reduced. If you are looking for a new sports game to play, Mario Strikers: Battle League is a wacky take on football that incorporates special moves and highlights the special powers of many of the Mushroom Kingdom’s most iconic characters. Right now, you can pick up the game for $52 and save a little money on one of the biggest Nintendo Switch games of the year.
