Your Best video games for Christmas 2022 – December, week 5:
- Elden Ring ends 2022 in 1st place, a very fitting end to the year that won The Game of the Year at The Game Awards 2022, winning four awards, including Best Direction, Best Art Direction and Best RPG.
On sale on Steam for 42 EUR until January 5, it will cost you 10 EUR less by clicking here: ELDEN RING PC (remember to activate the payment fees in the comparator to get the best price)
- Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 drops to second place and does not benefit from Steam or Battle.net promotions.
The only way to save a few euros when purchasing Modern Warfare 2 is to buy 2 Steam Cards for 50 Euros.
You can read our article about Steam Cards to learn the little tricks that can help you pay less at each vendor.
- The best open-world game of all time about cowboys is third on our best games list and is selling for less than €13 with our promo code.
Red Dead Redemption 2 broke its record of players last month during the Steam Winter Sale, exceeding 66,000 concurrent players (The previous record was 55,000 in December 2019. It averages 33,000 players).
The recent success has stirred rumors of a Red Dead Redemption 3.
- Despite EA giving away two historical FIFA World Cup players in Football Ultimate Team before January 3, FIFA 23 falls to 4th place.
But as a late Christmas gift, we are giving you a chance to buy a FIFA 23 CD Key 70% cheaper on Epic Games using our promo code.
Note: The discount code is valid only once, and the promo ends on January 5.
- NFS Unbound drops to 5th place, and you can get it for less than 30 EUR, which is good for a game released less than a month ago.
- Kratos finds himself in 6th place after Amazon announced they’re doing a God of War adaptation on Amazon Prime.
You can buy God of War on Steam until January 5 at 40% off, and you’ll save another 10 Euros by comparing God of War PC prices.
- Santa Claus came via Epic Games last week and left us a great promo code to buy Cyberpunk 2077 PC 62% cheaper until January 5.
The last few months have seen the number of players taking to Cyberpunk 2077 grow exponentially, thanks to the Edgerunners series on Netflix and the new mods that open the game up for further exploration and reveal its many secrets.
- High on Life may not have received the acclaim it deserved from many official news sites, but players love it for its absolute craziness and absurd banter dished out by its weapons.
You can save money with a 25% Epic Games promo code when spending €14.99, which is usable once until January 5.
- Make sure to fill your cart with video games and benefit from a considerable price reduction because the Epic Games coupon can be combined with the current sales.
I bought High on Life, FIFA 23 PC, Cyberpunk 2077 and The Callisto Protocol for €124.47 instead of €237.96 using the Epic Games coupon.
- Prices on CDKeys are even cheaper than on Steam.
- Note: Two 50 EUR Steam Cards are often cheaper than a 100 EUR Steam Card.
If you want our recommendation, Elden Ring is the best game of 2022 on PC and consoles.

- Geralt makes his comeback as The Witcher 3 PC lands in 9th place. Even if the Netflix series didn’t have the same impact on video games as Cyberpunk 2077 with Edgerunner, it’s still one of the best RPGs of the last ten years.

TOP 10 PC Games week 3:
- Modern Warfare 2 PC is back on top of the rankings but still doesn’t have a price drop, so your best option is to buy a Steam Gift card.
You can get a Steam Wallet gift card right now for less than €48, and by buying 2 Steam Cards 50 EUR (better than 1 Steam Gift Card 100 EUR), you will pay about €95 with our promo code but have your Steam Wallet credited with €100.
Beware, prices change quickly, and some promo codes have a time-limited activation period.
- Need For Speed Unbound slips to the 3rd place and still costs 40% less than in stores on PC, while one of the best games of the year 2022, Elden Ring, climbs to 4th thanks to the release of its new “Colosseum” DLC.
The Colosseum update is free and includes the PvP (Player-versus-Player), Duel (1v1), Squad (team deathmatch), and Orderly (free-for-all) modes.
- The announcement of its upcoming Phantom Liberty expansion sees Cyberpunk 2077 back in the top 10, helped by the news that actor Idris Elba will play the role of Solomon Reed. The CD key price of Cyberpunk 2077 PC is still 55% cheaper than in stores!
- High on Life is the week’s new entry, finding itself in 8th position. A crazy and hilarious FPS in which a horde of aliens wants to invade the earth to manufacture drugs from its inhabitants.
The humor mainly comes from the game’s talking weapons which taunt the invaders and the player. Be warned; the game is rated 18+.
- Red Dead Redemption 2 (5th) and God of War (10th) are discounted on Steam and Epic Games, but you will find them much cheaper on our price comparison site.
- WoW: Dragonflight still has no significant promo on Battle.net or CD key sellers.
If you want to save some money, there is no other choice than to buy a €50 Blizzard Gift Card if you want to purchase the standard version of the expansion cheaper or buy several €50 Blizzard cards to get the Heroic and Epic versions at a lower price.
Dragonflight is free until January 2, 2023, to all World of Warcraft players who want to test it.

- World of Warcraft: Dragonflight doesn’t have a significant price drop, and it’s better to buy a prepaid card.
- The same goes for Warhammer 40k: Darktide, with its best price currently on the Microsoft platform.
We recommend you buy a Microsoft card of at least 50 EUR/USD/GBP, which sells for at least 10% cheaper than its actual value, and keep the remaining money on your Microsoft account for your next purchase (there is no expiration period).

TOP 10 PC Games week 1:
- We start December with the same top 3 as the last week of November: Call Of Duty: MW2, FIFA 23, and Red Dead Redemption 2.
Note: The latter is almost 80% off the official price, and you can also save over €30 on FIFA 23 with our exclusive promo code.
- For Modern Warfare 2, on the other hand, it’s best to buy a Steam Gift Card or a Blizzard card to save more.
- It’s the same for the latest WoW expansion: World of Warcraft: Dragonflight, which was released a few days ago and has not yet been reduced in price.
Compare the prices of two €50 and one €100 gift cards to find out which is more profitable, and beware of payment fees – which you can see by using our filters to calculate the exact cost.
- God of War clings to 5th place and sells for half the price, as does Football Manager 2023, which sits in 5th with God of War.
- Cyberpunk 2077 sits in 6th place and gives CD Projekt Red a record financial quarter, thanks mainly to Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, the Netflix animated series based on the game, which is a top 10 Netflix show.
- Entering the top 10 is The Callisto Protocol, a sci-fi survival horror that plunges you into a maximum-security prison on Jupiter’s dead moon, which is plagued by a strange and terrifying outbreak causing monstrous creatures.
You’ll have to fight in hand-to-hand combat to defeat the ever-changing mutants and face your fears to unlock the secrets that haunt this cursed prison.
