Gears 5

Gears 5 was the most successful game in its series. It began with protagonist Kate Diaz on another mission post events in Gear 4.

With a staggering $4.99 price from Gamestop, this title was one of the biggest hits of 2017. Prey is an FPS game developed by Arkane Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks. 

They released it on different platforms, such as Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The story allows players to have a galactic experience as it features a moon station on Talos I.

NBA 2K Playgrounds 2

We all know about NBA 2K’s success as the game has ranked on the top-grossing list. Although, only a handful know about NBA 2K Playgrounds, released in 2018.
