It’s that time of year again, where the roasting of turkeys and Uncle Leo’s stale cologne permeates the air and invades your nostrils. And what would a Thanksgiving season be without ridiculous sales and the trampling of others to get the last Tickle-Me Elmo? Well, here at StickSkills, we’ve got your collective backs when it comes to saving on great games. Whether you’re a console kiddie or a PC elitist, we’ve got deals upon deals for you.

And all through this week, Amazon will have incredible Lightning Deals that are definitely worth checking out. The deals are too plentiful and fly by far too fast to mention, so I’ll link you guys to their deals calendar instead. Just know that there are some Crazy Eddie-esque deals going on there.

Now, if you’re more the type to head to an actual store like it’s not 2012, Best Buy seems to be where you’ll want to be. Their highlights include:

Finally, we come to Toys “R” Us. While their deals are fairy typical, they will have a pretty rockin’ Buy 1 Get 1 for $1 promotion on select games such as ‘Need for Speed: Most Wanted’, ‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3′, ‘Sleeping Dogs’, ‘Dishonored’, and ‘LittleBigPlanet Karting’. That in of itself is worth checking out Toys “R” Us this week. Also, the big giraffe will be hawking console bundles such as:
