We've put together a list of titles we think you should buy to take full advantage of the May Savings sale that's currently taking place on the PlayStation Store. The discounted prices of games will be available until the end of this month.

May Savings is the latest sale on PlayStation Store in Europe that has seen plenty of great titles come down in price, ranging from the newest names to some old fan-favourite gems.

Since there's over one hundred games up for grabs at a discounted price, we have decided to narrow your choices down to top five titles that we think you should buy, provided that you haven't done so already, of course.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is a bundle of remastered versions of Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, and Crash Bandicoot: Warped - all of which were developed by Vicarious Visions who truly did an outstanding job of bringing our favourite furry hero back to life.

If for some reason you have never played a Crash Bandicoot game before, then there is absolutely no reason in the world for you not to get this trilogy.

And if you're an old-school PlayStation head who did venture the jungles and beaches of Wumpa Island and other iconic locations from back in the day but haven't yet relived the experience with current-gen technology - we urge you to do so.

Its glorious 4K visuals and throwback gameplay style are more than deserving of all the possible praise we can think of. The trilogy will you set back £19,99/€21,99.

Just Cause 4

The adrenaline-filled adventures of Rico Rodriguez are back with Just Cause 4, and they are more destructively fun than they have ever been. Thanks to the game's improved physics, players will be treated to an abundance of extreme conditions such as tornadoes, sandstorms and blizzards - all of which add to the thrilling action Just Cause games are known for.

Taking place in a fictional South American country of Solis, players will be tasked with unraveling the mysterious past of Rico Rodriguez as he tries to discover the reason behind his father's connection with The Black Hand.

With an overhauled physics system and improved graphics, Just Cause 4 is an easy recommendation for all players who like to game on the edge of their seat, all the while causing absolute mayhem throughout the pretty locations of Solis. The standard edition of the game is currently up for grabs for £26,99/€34,99.

NBA 2K19 20th Anniversary Edition

Although the game has been out for quite a long time now, NBA 2K19 still has a lot to give, especially considering the fact that the next iteration of the game will most likely not be released any time before September this year.

Easily the best simulation of basketball, the 20th Anniversary Edition of NBA 2K19 offers a staggering amount of content that will give your MyPLAYER a proper performance boost. 100,000 VC, 50,000 MyTEAM points with 20 League Packs, Sapphire cards of LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo are only some of the things you get in this bundle.

Stepping on a virtual basketball court has never felt, looked or sounded better. The price of £29,99/€34,99 for this immense package makes the offer a no-brainer for sports gaming fans.

Divinity: Original Sin 2 - Definitive Edition

The Definitive Edition of this fantastic RPG by Larian Studios brings a number of changes to this title. As many as 150,000 new and rewritten words have been implemented to the game, either as lines of dialogue or objects players can interact with.

Brand new locations and fights have also been added, together with a new difficulty mode called Explorer Mode that allows players to tone everything down a notch so they can enjoy the game's lore properly. 

Divinity: Original Sin 2 is a game that's very easy to recommend to anyone due to its sheer brilliance, and you can grab the Definitive Edition with all the aforementioned changes and additions for £32,49/€38,99.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Experience the phenomenal and absolutely gigantic open world with Geralt of Rivia - an expert swordsman and a brutal monster hunter who shows zero mercy to his foes, or who can actually be quite merciful, it all depends on the route you choose to go down.

With its multiple endings, The Witcher 3 is a prime example of a game whose replay value is through the roof. The vast lore of creatures you stumble upon while slashing your way through menacing forests and deadly swamps makes time simply fly by. Immersion is the key word here, and even that would be an understatement.

CD Projekt Red delivered an utter masterpiece in 2015, and four years later, the game is still nothing less than a must-play. At the price of just £7,39/€8,99 - the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is an absolute steal.
