Gaming is having a moment. For one thing, all that "sheltering in place" for much of the past 14 months has likely raised its profile. At the same time, though, a bounty of amazing new consoles, handhelds and games has made gaming more popular than ever. And who can't use the great escape it offers: Immersing yourself in another world lets you take a break from this one.
If you’re a diehard gamer, chances are you’re ready for some fresh challenges. And if you’re new to this world, well, now is the perfect time to give it a shot. Amazon has a motherlode of simply incredible gaming deals starting at just $6. We're talking about amazing savings going on left and right — up to a ridonculous 85 percent on top titles.
And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? Get in the game (heh) with a free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
Whether you have an Xbox, Sony PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, or even if you're a PC gamer, you'll find something to snap up among these next-level deals:

"The game is absolutely amazing," shared a delighted PlayStation gamer. "The first one is my favorite game of all time and I was on the fence about a new addition to the game as I didn’t want my favorite game to be impacted in any way. With that said, I went in with an open mind and the emotions I felt were insane.... It is an absolute amazing experience that one must play on their own. I’m still absolutely in amazement and I cant wait to play again."

Just Dance 2021 comes with 40 songs to keep you moving — including “Rain on Me” by Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande, “Adore You” by Harry Styles and “Don't Start Now” by Dua Lipa. The game is designed for up to six players — fun for the whole gang.
“I have all the Just Dance games...and this may be my favorite,” shared a dancing fan. “The songs are a great mix of genres, and the choreography has enough familiar moves to make the game comfortable to jump into, but it also has some new moves that I don't think I've seen in the other Just Dance games. And the backgrounds — wow, they are amazing. It's crazy to think how far the game has come over the years. Five stars for sure!”
