Black Friday 2012: A Gamer’s Survival Guide

We saved the biggest for last. The 500 pound gorilla of retail doesn’t have anything that will wow you when it comes to the consoles, but you can expect to find a plethora of games marked down under $25, so expect some competition. Some of these deals will vary based on state, such as if you’re in Oklahoma, so you may want to check the prices at your local shop.

Many of these games are out on multiple platforms, but we’re only reporting them on the consoles they’ve been confirmed on in order to ease confusion. Don’t be surprised to see a few more out there.
