In many parts of the country the kids have off from school this week. Why not keep them busy with some video games so they don’t drive you up the wall? Or, just keep yourself busy — we’re still looking at a few more weeks of winter, after all, and games are a great way to explore the world from the comfort of your couch.
Walmart has plenty of great deals for your favorite system, too, regardless of whether you’re a Nintendo Switch, PlayStation or Xbox player.

Reviews are, predictably, glowing, with players calling it a “beautiful game with so much to do,” and “a great way to waste your time away.”
Even first-time players have a lot to say: “I’ve never played any Zelda games before, but I had a general idea of what they were like….I was kinda worried I wouldn’t understand or “get into it,” but I was wrong! So far the graphics and the open world has so much detail and epic views that I fell in love as soon as I looked over the mountain peak. If you’ve never played Zelda and you’re thinking about purchasing this game, do it!!”

Save with the epic God of War
This mature-rated game is quite the family affair, as the Greek-deity-battling Kratos decides to leave behind the world he knows in favor of the colder and quieter north to raise his son in peace. But that tranquility doesn’t last long when he and the kid get involved in the affairs of gods and giants, forcing this former god to pick up his ax once again. The greatest-hits edition of this acclaimed title is now just $18.
Players are super enthusiastic about this one: “This game has an epic story line following Kratos and his son, which magnificently intertwined with the previous God of War games. You will appreciate the graphics and character developments. You will be like a fish on a hook and will not be able to set your remote down. Buy it. Play it. Love it. Can’t wait for the next one.”

Get $40 off Final Fantasy VII Remake
Final Fantasy VII has been a favorite of gamers since its release way back in 1997, but the graphics haven’t aged well. So this soup-up remake is just what everyone’s been asking for, adapting the exciting adventure of a small group of freedom fighters as they fight against the forces of the destructive corporation known as Shinra. Fight soldiers in a crazy cyberpunk city, with some magic thrown in as well — and save 66 percent off while you’re at it, playing only $20 for this modern masterpiece.
A fan of the original says even though they hesitated to buy this new one, they were “not disappointed,” adding that it’s “faithful to the original story with a twist! Better storytelling with the improved graphics.”

The Riders Republic is the ultimate playground for fans of extreme sports.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole is only $15 right now
This might sound a little crazy, but this role-playing game based on the crude cartoon from Comedy Central is actually really good. The city of South Park is fun to explore, the dialogue is razor-sharp and there are great items to discover. The combat is also awesome. This package even includes the first game, The Stick of Truth, as a bonus! We can’t recommend South Park: The Fractured But Whole enough, and right now you can give it a shot for only $15.
Shoppers agree, with one saying “If you like the show, you’ll love the game. All the characters from the show coming together for a hilarious game that’s just a good time.” But even if you aren’t the biggest fan, The Fractured But Whole also “challenges your problem solving and analyzing skills,” and “it’s funny and there’s so much to do!” And you don’t have to wait for the next season to enjoy this adventure!

Even if you’re not that familiar with Star Wars lore, this game is a great role-playing adventure with plenty of action and spectacular graphics.
This was one of the best games of 2019, and right now it’s just $18, where players call it a “fantastic Star Wars game,” one where the main character has a lot of “depth” and the graphics are “visually amazing.” One gamer says, “The combat is enthralling (and low key gives me a power trip), the visual direction is incredible, working with the engaging characters and writing to evoke the feel of the movies incredibly well, and the game offers a new perspective that adds depth to a very interesting time in the Star Wars timeline. I’ve loved every minute of playing!”
