Gaming is more popular than ever — yes, even more than when "Pac-Man Fever" hit the Billboard charts in 1982. In the last year, sales surged for the Nintendo Switch, as homebound gamers explored the virtual world of Animal Crossing, and the launch of next-gen gaming systems like Playstation 5 and the Xbox Series X and Series S led to retailers selling out in minutes.

We've scoured the web for the best gaming deals this Labor Day for Xbox, Playstation, Switch, PC and more. Put your skills to the test — and see if you're quick enough to score some of these hot titles and next-gen systems before they're all gone.

This action/adventure game from Ubisoft takes place in a near future where London is on the verge of collapse. An all-seeing surveillance state and private military are in control, while the fate of the city is in the hands of DedSec, a hacker group that wants to fight back for freedom. It’s as fun as it sounds. And this Labor Day sale for nearly 70 percent off? A steal.
"Watch Dogs: Legion is so far the best Watch Dogs game in the entire franchise and it's only the third game so far," raved a delighted gamer and five-star reviewer. "I like how you can switch to play anyone else at any point, even though I am the kind of gamer that sticks with one person the entire game. I like how there is no battery or botnet limit this time and instead, they were replaced with the hacking having a time limit for certain things..."

Assassin's Creed is beloved by gamers for its immersive historical settings. The newest installment, Assassin's Creed: Valhalla, provided a perfect showcase of the graphical power of the Playstation 5, bringing the world of vikings to vivid life with detailed images, lifelike hair and fur physics, and a rich soundscape worthy of the Nordic warriors. If you're one of the lucky players to have gotten your hands on a PS5, this is a game you can't pass up, especially since Amazon is offering this $60 title for just $25. That's over 50 percent off for one of the most acclaimed games of this console generation!
"This game brings the old mechanics back from the games of the 'prime years of Assassins Creed' and puts it into an open world with good stealth," one five-star reviewer said. "The game is everything Assassin’s Creed is supposed to be...and that’s coming from someone who loved Origins and Odyssey."
