PlayStation’s sale this week is all about the huge hits that we know and love. You won’t find a lot of indies or sleeper-hits here, this is about the games that land on magazine covers and are developed with an aggregate score of 80 already guaranteed upon release.

And finally, after weeks of failing to do so, Sony published a master list of games on sale! It’s so easy to tell you what’s available now.

But what should you buy?

Well, I can tell you what you maybe shouldn’t buy, and that’s XCOM 2. Not because it’s a game not worth your time. That’s hardly the case. However, this excellent strategy game’s PlayStation 4 version is currently available on Humble Bundle for $20, which is less than the price here and comes with a handful of other games.

As for my choices, look no further than the least known title of the bunch, Odin Sphere Leifthrasir. This marvelous action RPG is one of the most beautiful games you’ll ever play, and you can pick it up across three platforms for just $15.99. Best deal of the sale!

I won’t count out Final Fantasy X HD either, of course, since it’s an all-time favorite of mine. The remasters of Final Fantasy X and its sequel are a fine purchase at $15, even if I prefer the original PlayStation 2 versions. And while we’re on the topic of PlayStation 2 remasters, there’s nothing wrong with the original Devil May Cry trilogy either… well, except for Devil May Cry 2. Everything is wrong with that game.

Garou Mark of the Wolves and Samurai Showdown VI are tight as hell.

And look, Final Fantasy VII is even on sale! I just started playing it on the Vita again for old time’s sake, and the handheld’s emulation surprisingly has problems running it. I’m kind of tempted to buy this version, actually.

But I know why most of you are here. You want something big and flashy, not a retro nerd talking about video games that are 10, 15, 20 years old. If you want a genuine PlayStation 4 blockbuster that I approve of, well, there’s… ummm… well… I’ve got that Final Fantasy VII soundtrack in my ears while writing this and can’t think of modern games… umm… yeah, none are catching my eye while scrolling the list.

Okay, got one! I’m genuinely curious about Titanfall 2 after hearing so many good things about its single player campaign. I choose you, Titanfall 2, as the blockbuster game readers should be buying.
