Ori and the Blind Forest (₹1,120)
Ori and the Blind Forest might look cute and cuddly, and true enough, its lavish, hand-drawn backdrops are an absolute treat for the eyes. But this side-scrolling platform adventure isn't afraid to inflict a little pain on players.
The opening minutes are absolutely heart-wrenching, but if you can survive that emotional toll, the resulting game is excellent. It finds the middle ground between platform action and Metroid-like adventure and exploration, and that gorgeous world and animation makes it all the more inviting.
Tom Clancy's The Division (₹1,890)
Huge games release so frequently now that it's hard to believe that The Division debuted only a little over a year ago – but we were absolutely engrossed when it came out. And now you can snag this slick tactical shooter for a mere ₹1,890 from Amazon.
The Division delivers engaging online shoot-and-loot action in a dazzling setting: New York City after an outbreak of disease sends the United States into utter mayhem. Exciting combat, deep role-playing elements, and a massive array of content make this a game you can get happily lost in for a long, long while.
Life is Strange (₹1,120)
Life is Strange itself isn't strange so much as it is uncommon: much of this five-part episodic adventure is pretty low-key, highlighting the tale of a teen girl and her troubled friend. The decisions you make along the way will affect that relationship and others, and ultimately determine the fate of people around her.
Did we mention that she can manipulate time? Right: so that is a bit strange, but it's a key mechanic in how these stories unfold, since you can go back to try and correct any missteps. But time can be a tricky thing, and there are some surprises along the way – not to mention some emotional moments. The first episode is free, so you get to try before you buy too.
Far Cry 4 (₹1,399)
It's shocking to think that a game as vast and exciting as Far Cry 4 could be had for less than ₹2,000, but that's the benefit of waiting a couple years for a price drop. Ubisoft's last mainline open-world entry might be a little older at this point, but it's no less entertaining as it plunges you into the intense wilds of Kyrat.
The fictional Himalayan country is filled with threats, both human and animal, but you've got an array of weapons to deal with them – and there are plenty of insane vehicles to command, as well. It's spectacularly fun, and now's the ideal time to catch up before next year's Far Cry 5 rolls around.
Sunset Overdrive (₹1,099)
On that note, if you're looking for an open-world game that's even zanier than Far Cry 4 and at a fraction of its already-low price, then turn your attention to Sunset Overdrive instead. Insomniac's game doesn't feel quite as expansive, but it's packed with personality as you try to clear a city full of energy drink-addled mutants.
True to the Ratchet & Clank creator's form, you'll wield an array of truly ridiculous, over-the-top weapons as you grind on the city's vast system or rails and vault over nearly anything in sight. It's brash and exuberant, and the price is absurdly right.
