You'll be a winner no matter which Editors' Choice video game deal you choose from this week's roundup.

    Is It Worth It?: Ah, the joys of highly pixelated, never duplicated Nintendo! Available in Black/Red, this system will take you back to the days when girls wore frizzy perms and leg warmers, and guys in mullets donned boxy-shouldered fuchsia plaid jackets (which sounds like a video game to us!) This system is compatible with classic NES games and comes with two controllers.

    Store: CowBoom
    Price: $89.99 with free shipping

    Is It Worth It?: With crisp graphics and a library of awesome games, the Xbox 360 has taken its rightful place among the pantheon of A-list gaming systems. Features of this used system include 4GB internal memory, composite A/V cable, and more. It also accommodates Wireless N and HDMI connectivity options, and is compatible with Microsoft Kinect. However, the pictured wireless controller is not included. Note that this used unit may also be missing parts or accessories and have dents, scratches, or other cosmetic blemishes. No warranty information is available, though a product protection plan is offered for additional cost.

    Is It Worth It?: IGN gives Crysis 3 a thumbs, calling it "a polished iteration on the previous Crysis titles." It's all about Prophet and his sidekick Michael "Psycho" Sykes in the year in 2047, where they discover that New York City has been encased in a Nanodome created by the corrupt Cell Corporation. The next worst enemy would be high prices, but this deal puts the game at a savings of $15.

    Looking for other great games at a discount? GameFly is slashing prices on select used PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Nintendo Wii U video games. The deals include used copies of Halo 4 for Xbox 360, Call of Duty: Black Ops II for Wii U, and more.

Now's your chance in a game IGN calls "a great addition to the strategy genre, complete with an engaging campaign full of tension and challenges." It also comes in at $10 under our Black Friday mention and the best price we've seen for this game on Xbox 360.

    Microsoft Store takes gaming to an even higher (savings) level, with prices up to 88% off a selection of Xbox 360 and Windows games and accessories, with prices starting at $4.99, which ties last week's mention as the best percent-off sale we've seen from Microsoft Store, putting most titles at the lowest total price we could find.

    Is It Worth It?: Like past editions, yesterday's release of Grand Theft Auto V met with fans who stood in line at midnight to be the first to get their hands on a copy. For those who have waited patiently at home instead, now is your chance to score the newest GTA for $5 less than those who preordered. (Last week's deal included 1,600 Xbox LIVE points).
