Black Friday is the one day of the year where your chances of getting great deals at your local retailer are about as good as your chances of getting curb-stomped by a fellow shopper on your way to the electronics section. I can understand the allure of getting stuff on the cheap, but as a self-proclaimed geek with alarmingly brittle bones who avoids confrontation like the Bubonic plague, I don’t cherish the idea of fighting my way through a tidal wave of angry shoppers like I’m Brad Pitt in World War Z so I can get an HDTV for half off.
This is where Cyber Monday comes in, because you can get many of those same deals without the hassle of waiting in lines for hours between that guy who obviously hasn’t showered in at least a week and the old lady with the crippled leg who looks sweet but really brought that cane as an instrument to bash your fucking head in the second you put your hands on something she has her Glaucoma riddled eyes on. So if you’re like me and none of the above sounds like a meaningful use of your time, you should definitely read on for all the best video game deals Cyber Monday has to offer.
UPDATE 1: I’ve added deals from Newegg, Xbox Live, and a few more courtesy of Best Buy.
Now, before anyone goes complaining that I’m missing Barbie’s Horse Adventures or Legos Sophie’s Choice, I’ve handpicked many of the deals so a majority of the games below are going to be of the mature and/or horror persuasion. If you know of a game deal I haven’t listed that you think should be here, feel free to tweet it at me (@BabyColada). The same goes for any deals that are no longer available — let me know so I can update accordingly. Enjoy.
