It's been an incredible year for gamers thanks to the release of several amazing blockbusters. Naturally, this gives avid fans and gift-buyers plenty to choose from this holiday season.
Big hitters, including games like God of War, Spider-Man, and Red Dead Redemption 2, are certain to put a smile on the face of any gamer come December, but they can also come with a pretty hefty price tag. So it's important to know what kinds of discounts and special offers you should be on the lookout for.

The Best Spider-Man (PS4) Discount
Daily Steals offered the best deal by far on Insomniac Game’s super-swinging PS4 adventure via a Facebook Marketplace deal.
It offered the game for just $35 in late October, which is around 40% off retail. Truly, a remarkable deal for such a new game. The packaging came in Spanish, but the game itself was identical to the English US version.
If you can find a copy of Spider-Man in the $30 to $45 range, don't hesitate to snatch it up.

The Best God of War Deal
Best Buy has knocked $20 off the bill for a copy of God of War for PS4, bringing the price down to $39.99.
If you fancy some rage-inducing axe battles with giant ogres, this is as cheap as it gets.

The Best Offer for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
We dug around sites like CDKeys and Kinguin expecting great things, but came up disappointed with offers on Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. And then this popped up: a killer Facebook deal for $35, thanks to Daily Steals.
The deal was for PS4 copies only and, as usual, the Spanish-language packaging didn’t detract from the decisively English-language game packed inside. Anytime you can find this game for around the $40 mark, you should take advantage of the opportunity.

The Biggest Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Discount
Daily Steals did it again with this Facebook Marketplace promo, offering Activision’s latest shooter for just $35.
Unfortunately, the PS4-only deal left Xbox One and PC players in the dark, and box collectors should be aware that Daily Steals offers titles almost exclusively in Spanish packaging. The game is in English, though.
As this was another very popular and anticipated title, don't expect it to dip too far below the $40 mark for a while yet.

The Best Red Dead Redemption 2 Deals
As one of the most successful games of 2018, Red Dead Redemption 2 deals are hard to come by.
But MassGenie is offering a Power Deal on the Xbox One version for $47.99. Power Deals work by allowing games to join Power Deal Circles — groups of gamers committed to buying the game — that drive down the price when the target number of buyers is met.
The target in this case is only two, so you should have no problem finding a friend (or getting two yourself) and activating the deal.

The Best Console Bundle Deals
GameStop is currently running an excellent deal on console bundles. You can save $140 on a 1TB Xbox One X that comes with both Red Dead Redemption 2 and Fallout 76.
That bundle normally costs $599.99, but right now you can get it for just $459.99. For reference, a 1TB Xbox One X alone usually costs $500 from GameStop.
This is a fantastic deal, and one you shouldn't sleep on. GameStop is even offering free shipping! Just remember that the Fallout 76 digital code won't be playable until Nov. 14.
