Animal Crossing: New Horizons is the perfect game for powering down after a day of work. The low-stress, high-fun game style lets your mind rest as you move your cute little character around their personal island, building houses for guests and restyling the landscape with flowers. Or in my case, a wrestling ring.

If you own a Switch, then ACNH is a must-have.

Bandai Namco

Made by Bandai-Namco and featuring the writing talent of Game Thrones' George R.R. Martin, Elden Ring is a story-driven powerhouse of a modern game. The game is graphically stunning, and the story beats and fighting mechanics weave together wonderfully to create one of the best-realized games of this decade.

This Spider-Man game for PlayStation 4 is arguably the best superhero game in modern times. The expansion focuses on Mile Morales, another Spider-Man with a unique set of powers and his struggle to come to terms with who he is and what it means to be a hero. The storytelling is second to none, and now the cost is more easily within reach. Snag this in your web as soon as possible.
