I buy from Amazon mostly. If possible, I'll go to GameCrazy, they're hard to find, but worth it. If worse comes to worse, I'll go to Wal-Mart.

I avoid GameStop. They've ripped me off many times.

I usually have to resort to Gamestop, which I hate.

Depends. If it's new, the prices on Ebay/Amazon can be too inflated, I'll get it at Gamestop if it's old, and target if it's new. Mostly Amazon, though.

I get most of them as presents and the ones I buy I get from Toys R Us or Target since they're on backroads because my mom is too scared to drive on highways.

Electronics Boutique and JB Hi-Fi, since they have a great selection. I also buy all my albums from JB.

I've never heard of a JB before. Where do you live?

I go to my local Gamestop. They never rip me off. I like it there. Plus they recently redesigned and their layout is much more efficient.

I think that every GS is different. My local store has given me nothing but trouble.

Just to name a few:
- I once traded in 5 games at once and only got about $20 store credit. That, to me, feels like a rip-off.
- The "help" gave me the stink-eye when I went and bought SMG. A younger kid in front of bought a Silent Hill game, then the clerk just gave me the weirdest look.
- MK:DD!! used is $40? wut?

The first one isn't strange to me. But the other ones are. Double dash for $40 used? That's strange...

Game, gamestop, or daily price. Although recently I have been buying online at play.com or amazon when I have to import from the US (I´m european). It´s so absurd that imported games can be CHEAPER than the ones I find in phisycal stores, which are usually more expensive

My local GameStop, it's the nearest place to get games within biking distance.

The only dumb thing is they give me looks when I buy a kiddy game.

My dad also gets some games for me at Nintendo World if it's the first realise date since he works in NYC. That's how I got Pokémon Diamond and M&L:BiS.
