We’re coming up on mid-October, and while the weather is cool and pleasant now, there are plenty of chilly days ahead, and you’ll want to make sure you’ve stockpiled your fave indoor entertainment — video games!

Well, guess what? Now‘s the time to add to your collection — it’s Amazon’s Prime Day Early Access Sale (aka Prime Day 2022, Part Deux), and the epic two-day shopping event (ending tomorrow at midnight, Pacific time) is delivering all sorts of incredible gaming deals, whether you have an Xbox console, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 or Nintendo Switch.

Why a second Prime Day? Well, as Julie Ramhold, Consumer Analyst with DealNews.com, told Yahoo Life: “Retailers really saw over the last couple of years that consumers are willing to shop early — long before Black Friday itself really rolls around.” That’s going to be especially true this year, what with inflation making predictions about next month’s prices on anything a crapshoot.

The retail world has caught on; even Walmart has gotten in on the deal-dropping action this week, so we’ve sorted through the all the gaming options there and at Amazon to round up the best ways to play and save.

A spectacular reimagining of one of the most visionary games ever that rebuilds and expands the legendary original Final Fantasy VII RPG for today. In the story, the world has fallen under the control of the Shinra Electric Power Company, a shadowy corporation controlling the planet’s very life force as mako energy. In the sprawling city of Midgar, an anti-Shinra organization calling themselves Avalanche have stepped up their resistance. Cloud Strife, a former member of Shinra’s elite SOLDIER unit now turned mercenary lends his aid to the group, unaware of the epic consequences that await him. Adventure on and experience the story as it was meant to be enjoyed.

This remake has over 7,500 five-star reviews, with one gamer writing that “This is one of the best games in 2020 for me, because they faithfully remake the original and add way more content to the game and [it’s] also one of the best game plays in awhile…the gameplay is magnificent.”
