Gift them a new Nintendo Switch and games this holiday season. Best Buy

If you're shopping for a video game fan this holiday season, we have great news. Black Friday is the ideal time to find deals on Nintendo Switch games. Best Buy, GameStop and Target have all sorts of great Nintendo Switch games at reduced prices right now.

But if you're more about the console this season, that's OK, too: The Walmart early Black Friday sale and the Best Buy early Black Friday sale are great places to shop for a Nintendo Switch system this holiday. Even better: Both retailers are offering a Nintendo Switch bundle with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for $299. At that price, it's like getting a digital download of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for free when you buy a Nintendo Switch.

But back to those Switch games. GameStop is the place to shop for those. You can pick up some of the best-selling Nintendo Switch games of all time, including Splatoon 2 for $40 at the GameStop Black Friday sale. And Ring Fit Adventure, a 4.8-star game that's all about getting healthier, is just $55 at GameStop, reduced from $80.

And that's not all. Here's a sampling of some of the other games you can pick up at a big discount at GameStop right now. (Prices shown are for new condition games -- pre-owned prices may be lower.)
