Black Friday is here, and the deals are plentiful. If you're sitting at home recovering from last night's meal instead of mercilessly stampeding brick-and-mortar stores right now, good news: there are loads of online bargains on PC hardware and games ripe for the picking. In fact, there are so many we've had to lump 'em all in a big bulleted list. Here we go:
As far as I can tell, shipping is free on all of these, and most of coupon codes are good until November 25. Stocks might not hold that long, though, so don't wait too much.

The Amazon and Steam deals are all downloadable copies, while the Newegg ones are physical DVDs. I'm not all that partial to physical game media these days, but then again, Newegg does have surprisingly low prices on Dishonored (which I loved) and Skyrim. For reference, those games cost $44.99 and $40.19, respectively, on Steam.
