Top 10 Best Video Games to Buy on Black Friday 2017

These titles are a must-have for bargain-hunting gamers. Welcome to WatchMojo.com, and today we’re counting down the Top 10 Best Video Games to Buy on Black Friday for 2017. Before we begin, we publish new content everyday, so be sure to subscribe for more great content.

For this list, we’ll be taking a look at some awesome games released in both 2016 and 2017 that should be on everyone’s wish list. As a note, the shopping sprees may get a little bloody this year, so a mature content warning is in effect.

#10: “South Park: The Fractured but Whole” (2017)

Like its predecessor, this game was delayed several times before seeing the light of day. Finally, we can once again fart on our enemies. Playing up the whole super-hero shtick this time around, you will team up with various “heroes” as you juggle your daily life of ridicule with… being ridiculed as a superhero. While there are plenty of reasons to continue your South Park adventure, for fans new to the series, this latest entry is a must-buy. Included with every copy is the first game, “The Stick of Truth”, bringing together the full South Park experience.

#9: “NieR: Automata” (2017)


Nothing says miserable holiday shopping like buying a game with a severe existential crisis. Released earlier this year to critical acclaim, Automata not only revived the relatively obscure NieR franchise, but presented gamers with a tearjerking story and fast-paced, high-octane gameplay. With over 20 different endings and a plethora of secrets to explore, “NieR: Automata” will keep you busy well into the new year. Just make sure you’re mentally prepared for it, it’s enough to give even the jolliest Santa a case of the holiday blues.

#8: “Resident Evil 7 Biohazard” (2017)


Screams of joy will not be heard from players of Resident Evil’s newest title. Reviving the horror aspect of the world-renowned series, 7 takes us back to a more claustrophobic and survival-based environment. Surprisingly, Biohazard strays from the third-person perspective in favor of an arguably more terrifying first-person one. This, combined with VR support, will make any Black Friday shopping look like a child-friendly haunted house when compared to the horror that awaits players in the Baker Family home.

#7: “Forza Motorsport 7” (2017) & “Forza Horizon 3” (2016)


Waiting in long lines can be agonizing and slow; so after all that shopping, maybe you need a speed boost. In just a year's time, we’ve been given two fantastic entries in the Forza series, each geared toward different types of speed demons. If you’re looking for a more streamlined, classic racing experience, the latest Forza Motorsport will satisfy your cravings. However, if you’re looking for open landscapes and an arcade feel, Horizon 3 may be more of your forte. Either way, you can be sure that you won’t need to worry about feeling sluggish coming home with one of these titles.

#6: “Call of Duty WWII” (2017)


Step away from the war of shopping to turn back the clock and fight in a bygone era. Finally! No more futuristic warfare over and over again. After years of moving into the distant future, Call of Duty has ceremoniously returned to its roots in World War 2. While it may not be completely historically accurate as it so boldly claims, being back in the shoes of those virtual soldiers who started it all is quite cathartic. A more simplistic form of gameplay--both in single-player and multiplayer modes--will certainly bring veterans back, while still providing newcomers with a welcome experience.

#5: “Oculus Rift” (2016)


Now before you say anything, we know the Oculus Rift isn’t a game, but come on, who doesn’t want a VR headset nowadays? While the HTC Vive and PSVR are certainly viable alterantives, their buy-in price is… a bit steep. The Oculus Rift has a fairly nice library of games, and its Touch device offers gamers a more hands-on experience. With the bundle now matching the prices of the average console, it’s a great bargain for any gamer looking for a more immersive experience.

#4: “FIFA 18” (2017)


EA’s legendary sports series is back and better than ever. Continuing the deep narrative single-player experience, FIFA allows players to start anew or bring in their saves from the prior game. Of course, it isn’t the story that draws players in, but the love for the worldwide sport of futbol (or soccer if you live in North America). Capturing the epic play styles of various teams with superb animation thrusts players right onto the field, competing for championship glory. Gamer or not, nothing will get your blood pumping after a long day of shopping like a game of futbol.

#3: “Overwatch” (2016)


The biggest multiplayer game of last year is still kickin’ it hard today on all three platforms. 6v6 team-based gameplay at its prime, Overwatch takes all things that made past FPS games great, like Team Fortress 2 and Quake, and creates an experience that even the CoD fanboys can get into. While it may be over a year old, the community is still going strong and continues to grow. All of this coupled with new heroes, maps, game-modes, and skins will have you feeling like you never need to play another multiplayer shooter again!

#2: “Injustice 2” (2017)


While the rage-inducing crowds on Black Friday are enough to cause anyone to break out into a fist fight, try saving that anger for some virtual fighting instead. DC heroes and villains return to fight amongst themselves in brutal -but not mortal- combat. Known for taking the DC Universe to very dark places, the story continues to capitalize on how broken the heroes and villains are as Batman attempts to revive society. Story aside, the gameplay is as fast-paced and exciting as ever,and even adds character customization to the mix. Injustice 2 is a great way to legally enjoy beating the life out of others, all in good fun of course.

#1: “Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus” (2017)


It’s never a bad time to kill some Nazis! Over-the-top, extremely violent, and one hell of a blast, Wolfenstein 2 brings the series to new heights. BJ takes the fight to the home front as he fights the Nazi regime in the USA. Featuring superb storytelling and character design, this entry in the series manages to keep up with its predecessors while feeling fresh and engaging. Nothing says stress relief like killing genocidal monsters in the guise of men.
