Best Nintendo Switch games deals
If games are what you're most interested in buying, you're in luck, because Amazon is offering many of their most popular games at way lower prices than usual this Prime Day — up to 50 percent off!

Or if you're willing to splurge a bit, there's Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order, which is on sale for $53. You'll build a team of your favorite Marvel characters, like Scarlet Witch, Falcon, Spider-Man, and Wolverine, to search for the Infinity Stones before Thanos and The Black Order get to them.
Gamers who love defeating evil and enjoy adventure should try out Assassin's Creed The Ezio Collection and Triangle Strategy. Both one-player games take place in complex digital universes, making for immersive gameplay, and start at just $20. But if you prefer taking part in more traditional board games, Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics is under $35 and has a lot of good choices to play, including Mancala, Chess, Dominos, and President.
