With Black Friday upcoming, we look at the Top 10 Games that you HAVE to look out for. Don’t worry, this list caters for all! Each game has a rating, but keep in mind this is my own opinion. My advice would be to go into any game with an open mind before making your own judgement.

10: It Takes Two

What Gadget Gaming Guide

Rating: 7/10

A cute and fun co-op title, It Takes Two lets you and a friend control our two knitted protagonists, Cody and May. These two have been shrunken by their daughter, Rose, who was only simply trying to use love magic to save their relationship, the whole base of the story. Use teamwork and smart thinking to manoeuvre the pair around the family shed, a tree and even a snow-globe! Fight bosses in the form of toolboxes and Rose’s toys, all whilst getting the occasional therapy lesson from ‘Dr. Hakim’, the walking talking book of love.

It Takes Two only required one of two to actually own the game. This means you and your friend don’t need to both buy the game, only one of you needs to make the purchase, whilst the other person can download the free ‘Friends Pass’, allowing you to play together.


9: Demon Slayer: The Hinokami Chronicles

What Gadget Gaming Guide

Rating: 7.9/10

The popular Anime Kimetsu No Yaiba (Demon Slayer) now has a game adaptation, in which you can fight with and against your favourite characters from the show, along with a story-based mode, following the shows protagonist Tanjiro.

Adventure Mode

In Adventure Mode, follow Tanjiro through the story from the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba anime as he slays all kinds of demons in order to save his sister Nezuko, who herself has become a demon, back into a human.

Versus Mode

In Versus Mode, characters from the anime, including Tanjiro and Nezuko, can be freely matched against each another in a 2 vs 2 setting with up to 2 players on or offline. Enjoy this simple but exhilarating battle system and become the greatest demon slayer you can!

One great thing about this game is that you don’t need to know the story of the anime to play this game, a problem that occurs often in-game adaptations of shows or anime. Of course, if you have watched the anime, you will most likely enjoy it more as you get to use your favourite characters and their moves, however, it is not a requirement by any means that you have to watch the anime before playing.

8: Back 4 Blood

Rating: 7.9/10

Back 4 Blood is a classic zombie-shooter with a sprinkle of fresh game modes, game style and features. From the creators of the highly popular zombie shooter Left 4 Dead franchise, you are at the centre of a war against the Ridden’ – the zombie type creatures. These once-human hosts of a deadly parasite have turned into terrifying creatures bent on devouring what remains of civilisation. You play as either human survivors or as a zombie attack force and battle it out in either PVP online games or as a co-op team against AI. This game has a great balance between shooter and horror. It’ll give you a jump scare of two, but for the majority of the time, you’ll be shooting and killing.

5: Lost Judgement

What Gadget Gaming Guide

Rating: 8.7/10

December 2021, Tokyo district court. Akihiro Ehara stands accused of groping a woman on a crowded train. A bystander’s video footage of his attempt to flee the scene and subsequent apprehension is all over the news, and public outcry demands a maximum sentence. “Three days ago, a dead body was found in an abandoned building in Yokohama. Have you identified it yet?” he proclaims as confusion cuts through the courtroom. His defence lawyer, Saori Shirosaki, has no doubt that crucial details of the situation have been overlooked, as Ehara was not even tried for the murder. She contacts detective Takayuki Yagami to investigate this further.

How could Ehara have committed two crimes at once? Was the sexual battery just a cover-up? Has Ehara gamed the entire justice system? As victims surface and Yagami digs farther into the truth, he is faced with a question: Defend the law, or enact justice?


Put Yagami’s distinct martial arts forms to the test in order get to the bottom of the case. Harness the Crane, Tiger, and new Snake stance, a graceful style that can deflect and return an opponent’s strikes, using their energy against them.


Employ Yagami’s arsenal of detective tricks with new gadgets, stealthily tracking suspects, and crafty methods of infiltration. Leave no stone unturned in pursuit of the truth as you take on cases in both Tokyo and Yokohama.
