The era of the remake continues with EA Motive’s recreation of the survival-horror classic Dead Space, and it’s already a contender for 2023’s Game of the Year. Players will step back into the space boots of engineer Isaac Clarke in a faithful adaptation of the 2008 title, experiencing every scare, discovery, and high-intensity battle with a fresh coat of paint. Not only is it a fantastic way for fans to relive the original game in a new way, but also a perfect place for those unfamiliar to jump in and see what Dead Space is and always was about.
The Elite Series 2 is the top of the line when it comes to Xbox controllers, and the budget Core version is nothing to scoff at. As long as you don’t mind giving up the back paddles, you’ll still get the one-of-a-kind construction, swappable thumbsticks and D-pad, hair triggers, and more great customization options.
The seven-inch Nintendo Switch OLED is the best Switch yet. It’s that simple. The screen is bigger, better, and crisper.

Get one refurbished for $30 off its original price at GameStop.
Curved gaming monitors may not seem like game-changers right away, but they certainly can be. The curved 100R panel on the Samsung Odyssey G7 attempts to replicate the curvature of the human eye to cut down on strain and increase immersion, which makes playing feel better. The monitor also features a 240Hz refresh rate, 1ms response times, AMD FreeSync Premium support, WQHD resolution, and HDR10 compatibility.
