We are going to list the best game deals for Black Friday 2016 by store, and we are going to start with EA Origin. Speaking of which, Origins has a gift option now so you can buy games and gift them to your friends or family, and the desktop client, which received a makeover and looks better than Steam. Do give it a shot.
Command & Conquer The Ultimate Collection - Rs. 250
Conscript reporting! C & C is one of the finest RTS games ever made, with Red Alert 2 and Generals arguably the best games in the franchise. You are getting a great deal for Red Alert 3, and Tiberium Wars and their expansions.
The following 17 games are included in Command & Conquer The Ultimate Collection.
• Command & Conquer
• Command & Conquer: The Covert Operations
• Command & Conquer: Red Alert

• Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight
Okay I have to say this, if you want to play Command & Conquer, get it from EA Origin. Do NOT buy the Command & Conquer pack from Steam. You do not get the older games, in fact there are only 4 or 5 C & C games on Steam. C & C 4 was horrid, but it's an example of how you can trust EA to kill their best games.Sim City, poorly made Medal of Honor sequels come to mind. But let's move on.
Dragon Age: Origins - Ultimate Edition - Rs. 175
Made by Bioware, DA Origins, is a truly brilliant party based RPG which scratched my Dungeon Siege II successor itch (as DS III was total garbage). Great story, great gameplay, great graphics, great humour. Dragon Age: Origins Ultimate Edition truly scores well in all aspects. It has the Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening epansion pack as well.
Dead Space - Rs. 125
A horror game franchise which will make you jump when you least expect something, trust me it will.
Mirror's Edge (2009) - Rs. 150
It is possibly the best parkour free running game ever made. The graphics still hold up strong, and the first person gameplay is just breath taking.
Plants vs. Zombies GOTY - Rs. 73
GOG has new deals everyday. So I'm going to list a couple of games which are on sale as of writing this post. These games may be available for cheaper on Steam, so wait for the sale to begin later tonight.
Banished - $4.99
A city Building game which is quite similar to Settlers, and in a way like Sim City. The game has no combat whatsoever, but has natural disasters which can cause havoc. Other than that, it is a great way to relax. It has some superb mods with Colonial Charter being the best one.
Cossacks Anthology - $2.39
A superb RTS set in the 18th century. It is one of the few strategy games, without a population limit. Want to watch thousands of units go to war? Cossacks is your game. The game includes Cossacks: European Wars, Cossacks: The Art of War, and Cossacks: Back to War.
Cossacks II Anthology - $4.99
Similar to Cossacks, but with better graphics and set in the 19th centiry. Cossacks II comes with the original Napoleonic Wars and the Battle for Europe expansion.
It is the best tine to pick up Starcraft II. If you want to play multiplayer get only the StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void (standalone game) for $19.99 which is 33% off its regular price of $29.99. If you want to play the single player campaigns, get StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm, and StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty (the original game) for $20. ($9.99 each which is a 50% discount on the usual $19.99 price).
Diablo III, Warcraft III, Starcraft and Diablo II and LOD are not on sale. Shame on you Blizzard.
Square Enix Store
There are some terrific deals for the Final Fantasy series on Square Enix's store.
Just a heads up The Steam Autumn Sale 2016, begins later tonight, we'll be back with a bigger list for that. okay?
