Our favorite part of Fallout 4 might be its character creator, which made the game a perfect fit for Monster Factory.

This eerie game is like BioShock's cerebral, Canadian cousin. Some have even dared to call SOMA better than BioShock.

Firewatch: $13.39 (33 percent off)

One of the year's prettiest, loneliest first-person adventure games gets a price cut.

This is a bloody, bizzaro visual novel. Our reviewer had a great time with it.
