God of War – Digital Deluxe Edition
First on our list is 2018’s game of the year: God of War. Serving as the fourth main entry in the critically acclaimed God of War series. Taking place many years after the events of God of War 3, God of War 4 takes place within the Norse based world of Midgard. Allowing you to explore new areas and realms, face new and dangerous foes, meet fascinating characters and enjoy some memorable moments.
The story is based around Kratos and his son Atreus, going to spread their mother’s ashes. But it takes a right turn, and becomes a far greater challenge, when a mysterious stranger starts hunting them down.
You can enjoy the extremely well-done main story, or a great variety of exciting side missions that have you travel and explore the massive world. Combined with a very deep and strong combat system and great boss fights, this game is extremely fun.
With a new God of War entry expected to release soon, it will be worth experiencing the events of God of War (2018). Available now for only £16.74.
Bioshock: The Collection
The next entry on our list is a classical game that withstands the test of time: the Bioshock collection. This collection holds all of the Bioshock games and their add-ons, containing everything that has been made for these games from the original release in 2007 and onwards. Completely remastered so that you can enjoy the stunning tales they tell, at a stunning quality.

With Bioshock 1 and 2 taking place in the hidden underwater city of Rapture, that lies in turmoil after its citizens were driven insane by the use of powerful, but highly addictive, plasmids. Plasmids are injectables that alter the user's genetic structure to give them rare and devastating abilities, like summoning lightning.
Bioshock Infinite plays along the themes set in its predecessors, but in a very different way. Taking place in the soaring city of New Columbia. A flying city that appears very bright and developed when you first enter, but as you go along you discover the dark foundation that it is built on. Featuring new “vigors” that give you unique ability, but are drinkables, rather than injectables compared to the original injectables.
All of these games include incredible, mind boggling stories that will take you through different locations and face powerful enemies that offer an extraordinary experience. Along with story modes, you will find alternate game modes and DLCs for you to experience.
