Vikings are cool, and we’re not just saying that because they live way up north! This epic title lets you live the life of a Norseman… or Norsewoman (you get to choose your gender). You can go on raids, fight vicious battles and experience a grand, sweeping saga in the Assassin’s Creed universe. But you don’t need to be familiar with the series to get started — in fact, this game is a great starting point for this immersive series, with a fun history lesson to boot!

Gamers certainly love it, with one shopper calling it “one of the best open world games I have played.” That’s because “there is so much to do in this game, so many ways to build your character, so many ways to engage in combat. The graphics are amazing and finally a game where you can play as a Viking! This game has over 100 hours of gameplay. Highly recommended!”

He adds, "the soundtrack is amazing and the [first] hour of the game is my favorite and I didn't get to the main story till like 30 mins in cause I was listening to the songs."

Not every space journey has to be an epic non-stop adventure. The Kerbal Space Program is something a bit more realistic, where engineering and physics are key to getting your spacecraft off the ground. The Kerbals might not be human astronauts, but you’ll feel for them anyway as they ascend into the stars… or crash to the ground when you make a mistake. This title is both hilarious and educational!

Players agree, with one calling out its "steep learning curve" but adding that "space travel is not easy" and this title offers "real space engineering with a comical twist." Sounds like a great way to pick up some STEM skills!

This was one of the best games of 2019, and right now it's just $17, where players call it a "fantastic Star Wars game," one where the main character has a lot of "depth" and the graphics are "visually amazing." One gamer says, "The combat is enthralling (and low key gives me a power trip), the visual direction is incredible, working with the engaging characters and writing to evoke the feel of the movies incredibly well, and the game offers a new perspective that adds depth to a very interesting time in the Star Wars timeline. I've loved every minute of playing!"
