What else really needs to be said about this game? It’s a dating simulator… where you date giant pigeons. GOTY every year forever.

2. The Legend of Korra / $9.89 (34% off)

It might not be an instant classic (more like a pretty good budget title), but it’s still the best Avatar game we have. With Korra over now, that has to count for something, right? *Sobs quietly at the lack of Korra*

3. Analogue: A Hate Story / $2.49 (75% off)

Don’t let the cheesy title and the fact that it’s a visual novel turn you off, fans have been calling this one of the best video game stories they’ve experienced in a long time. Plus it uses the word “transhumanism” in its description. Who doesn’t love a little transhumanism in their sci-fi?

4. Recettear: An Item Shop’s Tale / $4.99 (75% off)

If you’ve ever wanted to take a break from being a video game hero or heroine, to settle into a nice, peaceful life of being a video game NPC, this is the game for you. Recettear casts you as the owner of an item shop in a surprisingly addictive twist on the RPG formula.

5. BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger / $2.49 (75% off)

This fighting game might be a half a decade old, but it still holds up marvelously. Plus, it costs less than a McDonalds Big Mac, how can you go wrong?

6. NARUTO SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja STORM Revolution / $29.99 (30% off)

The latest entry in the Naruto Shippuden series is only a few months old, so this is a pretty significant discount if you’re into that series. Or if you’re into mashing buttons to smack the crap out of hundreds of ninjas.
