    14. A Nintendo Switch game that lets players navigate Luigi's dream vacation–turned–nightmare. The ooey-gooey setting makes for a spooky playing experience that's fun, but not too scary.


    Promising review: "The game guides you very well and makes sure you have a chance to find everything there is to find. I also appreciate that I don't automatically get dragged to the laboratory when I finish the mission since I like to look around for anything I might have missed (gems, coins, etc.). If you are questioning getting the game, I would say get it. It has very few cons for me at this point and they aren't even worth mentioning. Side note: I can't help but truly be in awe that these games are at a point where the cut scenes and gameplay look exactly alike." —KDeville

    Price: $50.90

    15. A Madden NFL game for football fanatics everywhere. It lets players partake in every step of their character's career and is designed for PS4.


    Promising review: "This year's Madden is much better than the last few that have been released. First off, linebackers don't jump 100 feet in the air, so it is actually possible to lob a pass over the middle without an unrealistic interception by the linebacker. The QB 1 mode is pretty fun, allowing you a shot to take a college-listed to the national championship and win it, which then helps with your draft stock when you continue into the NFL. Overall, the game is pretty good. I'm glad I decided to get it when it was on sale." —Tgilbert03

    Price: $25

    16. A Mario Kart Nintendo Switch game so you can battle your friends and family on the racetrack. Up to four people can race at once, plus it features the Inklings as playable characters.

    Price: $50

    18. A PS4 FIFA soccer game so you can run onto the pitch with the best players in the world. In this game, you can earn rewards, customize your player, and recruit for your team, all leading up to the VOLTA World Championship tournament in Buenos Aires.

    Price: $25

    19. A Donkey Kong Nintendo Switch game for people who are cool with cartoon violence and loads of bananas. For the first time ever, players can adventure as Funky Kong within this frozen tropical island.

    Price: $35
