As Black Friday officially begins (well, the holiday name at least, not that it means anything when it actually lasts a week these days), many retailers can offer some great deals on PC hardware and video games. But with so many options to choose from, what are the best sites for cheap video game deals this Black Friday 2021?
Since we already covered some great PC hardware deals for Black Friday 2021, let’s take a look at the other side of deals for PC gamers: the actual video games themselves. It’s all well and good to have the hardware to run Red Dead Redemption 2, for instance, but that’s kind of worthless when you don’t actually have the game to play.
Of course, there’s many different avenues you can go down for PC game deals, including official distribution platforms, key retailers, and the controversial key reseller sites. We’ve broken each of those down to the most popular sites for each category, where you can vote which site is your favorite to grab and game deals from (we may have missed a few, so pick "Other" and then let us know what we missed in the Discussions are below!)
Obviously, key resellers will have some of the best deals for cheap games, but the controversy surrounding them has been of constant debate for years. So in terms of official stores, places like Steam, Epic Games Store, or GOG can be your best bet. Or try Humble Bundle or Fanatical for insane deals on bundles of games. And you can always compare game prices for free with sites like isthereanydeal or gg.deals!
