My favorite underrated game in recent years is so cheap right now on all major consoles that I just bought another copy for my nephew

Thanks to some fantastic Black Friday deals that are dropping physical video game prices down a whole lot, one of the most overlooked games in recent years, Immortals Fenyx Rising, is selling for ridiculously cheap on all major consoles. It's going for as little as $6.60 for Xbox One/Xbox Series X|S at Walmart. It's also available for only $9.49 on PS4 at Amazon or $19.99 for Nintendo Switch at Amazon. Since it currently is selling for so cheap, I bought another copy of the game to give to my nephew for the holidays.

In my opinion, this is one of the most underrated and overlooked games in recent years and is a fantastic fit for people who love to explore colorful open worlds with plenty of puzzles and boss fights.

If you want to save some money, the PS4 version also works on PS5. However, there's also a specific PS5 version out there if you want it.

The lives of the Greek gods have been mightily disrupted by a Titan bent on destruction. Playing as a demigod, you'll need to free these immortals and set things right in the ancient land again by exploring an open world, taking on challenging boss fights, and acquiring better gear. Since the game was made by Ubisoft, it has a lot of similarities with Assassin's Creed, but with a more vibrant and humorous way of going about things. 

Perfect for: PS4 or PS5 owners who are into Assassin's Creed-like mechanics and love playful open-world adventures.

Avoid it if: You specifically want the PS5 version.

Immortals Fenyx Rising is super fun for people who love exploration and puzzles

My nephew has really been getting into gaming recently so I couldn't pass up the chance to get this game for him while it barely costs anything. Hopefully, he doesn't see this post so it doesn't ruin the surprise. At any rate, he'll get hours of entertainment out of it and I'll once again come off as the fun aunt. It's a win-win. I've got to say, it's rather sad that this game hasn't gotten as much attention as it deserves. It's a fun time for anyone who loves action adventure, Greek mythology, and exploration.

Being a big fan of open-world games like The Witcher III, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Horizon Zero Dawn I was very interested in checking out Immortals Fenyx Rising when it launched. It was developed by Ubisoft, the company behind the Assassin's Creed games and so it wasn't surprising at all to discover that many of the mechanics, menus, and the overall feel of the game felt relatively similar to the AC series. However, Immortals also has its own spin being a bit more cartoony, far more vibrant looking, and allowing players to really dive into the world of Greek mythology. At any rate, it's a game that I think belongs on a list of the best Xbox games

It's also worth noting that this is one of the many games available via Xbox Game Pass. So another way to give it to an Xbox One or Xbox Series X|S owner is by getting them a membership.
