Join Star-Lord and the Guardians of the Galaxy gang on an original adventure in this criminally overlooked third-person action game. It's your job to save the universe after a chain of catastrophic events set a course for an interplanetary meltdown. The combat is a little repetitive, but the humor is spot on. It's also visually stunning, with a seriously killer soundtrack.
Doom Eternal: was $39 now $13 @ PlayStation Store
The sequel to 2016's epic Doom reboot, Doom Eternal is a hard-rocking shooter where you fight off the spawn of hell with an arsenal of uber-powerful weapons.

Plus, if you want a challenge, select the toughest difficulty and prepare yourself for some of the most adrenalin-pumping action on PS5.
Persona 5 Royal: was $59 now $38 @ PlayStation Store
Persona 5 Royal is part turn-based RPG and part high-school simulator. You play as a new student who has recently moved to Tokyo. Soon you discover the ability to transverse a strange alternate reality and form The Phantom Thieves in an effort to fix the corrupt society around you. Just be warned, Persona 5 Royal will consume all your free time once it gets its hooks in.

It Takes Two: was $39 now $19 @ PlayStation Store
It Takes Two is a co-op adventure game where you must work together with your partner to complete puzzled and traverse creative platforming sections.

There's no need for you both to purchase a copy.
NBA 2K23 (Deluxe Edition): was $79 now $19 @ PlayStation Store
The NBA 2K franchise is renowned for offering a practically unparallel simulation of the sport of basketball, and NBA 2K23 keeps that trend going. Even if you don't consider yourself a baller, you're sure to be impressed with the ultra-realistic gameplay, and the large variety of modes. Unfortunately, the micro-transaction stuffed online modes remain a persistent problem that hasn't been addressed here.
