Death Stranding (PS4) | $20 | Amazon
Death Stranding was already a timely game when it came out in 2019, but like a fine wine, it only gets more existentially troubling with age. Hideo Kojima’s box-moving epic paints a picture of a divided United States in the wake of a cataclysmic event that’s wiped out the population. Does that sound like a nice piece of escapism in these trying times? If it does, the PS4 version of Death Stranding is currently $20. The game has been retailing for around $40 recently, so it’s an especially low price for a key title. If you don’t feel like paying extra for the director’s cut, now is the time to pick this up. Plus you’ll be able to upgrade to it for only $10 if you so feel like it.
