Games With Gold in October

Valiant Hearts: The Great War

The Amazon reviewers love this one.  Great, experience-driven war story, beautifully painted visuals and perfectly curated soundtrack combine to make this a shooter that feels like an RPG.

* Valiant Hearts The Great War ($14.99 ERP): Available from October 1-31 on Xbox One

The Walking Dead: The Complete First Season

The consensus among Amazon reviewers is that while fun the first time, it has little replay value. On the other hand if you love The Walking Dead, then it's an easy sell since this might be the only TWD game that is even playable.  It’s a simple story-driven RPG where you make choices that are supposed to affect the story but they don’t ultimately, which may break immersion for some.

* The Walking Dead: The Complete First Season ($24.99 ERP): Available from October 16 - November 15 on Xbox One, October 16-October 31 on Xbox 360

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes

Reviews suggest this is essentially a glorified tech demo. It’s a great showcase of the new engine and gameplay, not worth paying for, good thing it’s on discount.  Many see this as something that should have been held back to be an add-on to the just released Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain

* Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes ($19.99 ERP): Available from October 1-15 on Xbox 360
