GameStop has unveiled its early Black Friday deals for 2021, and they include a range of huge discounts on games from Nintendo, PlayStation, and Xbox, as well as hardware and accessories. It's time to save some serious dough on the best kind of presents for your loved ones, or alternatively, on games for yourself (we aren't judging).

This year's GameStop Black Friday deals offer huge discounts on brand spanking new games like Far Cry 6, Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, and Madden NFL 22. But maybe even more surprising are all the deals on first-party Switch games, which as you're probably well aware, don't come around all that often.

Some of the best GameStop Black Friday Switch deals include $20 off The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe (say that five times fast, and Fire Emblem: Three Houses.

Then we've got a slew of hefty discounts on PS5 games including Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Ghost of Tsushima, and Demon's Souls; and Xbox Series X games like Riders Republic, Assassin's Creed Valhalla, and It Takes Two. 

Got enough games already? GameStop's Black Friday deals also include tons of savings on PC accessories like keyboards and gaming mice, as well as high-performance gaming laptops. You'll also find Black Friday deals on PC monitors and TCL TVs.

It's a lot to take in, honestly. And for that reason, we've rounded up a few of the best early deals we've seen so far from GameStop's Black Friday 2021 ad.
