The best season of the year is ahead of us: Spider-Man PS4 launches his webs on September 7, Lara follows with Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Then comes FIFA 19, Battlefield 5, Black Ops 4, Forza Horizon 4, Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, Red Dead Redemption 2 - it’s going to be a hot fall, so we've gone on a quest to find the best 4K HDR TV possible for your budget. Ask a seasoned gamer what TV you should buy and the answer pretty much always is: OLED. Buy an LG OLED if you have the budget.
