i'd buy it from my local indie shop. They usually dont give tax (or it wont be as much as Gamestop). Also, its just down the block from my building so i wouldnt have to go too far to buy it

Gamestop is a 10-15 walk from my house, but a 2 minute drive, so I'll go there, but if I wanted to get the game cheaper on release day, I have my ways. hehehe

i probably wait for a few days or weeks for it to come online so i can nab it for cheaper price. i dont believe in paying 60 dollars for a game

I just go to Target, or sometimes I buy from the BX at the Air Force Base, but very rarely, usually that's where I get my consoles (as there's no tax on electronics, but it's kind of far away). So Target. Lol

I wait for sales or pre-owned.
But GameStop is where I buy all my games.

Walmart...eh, sound generic, but honestly I think Gamestop is a rip off store. You can just forget trying to sell any games there. My brother sold a Medel of Honor PS2 3 Disc set, manuals, clean disc, everything!...three bucks...need I say more?

Usually, I just head over to the Target not too far from here, but if the situation calls for it, there's another shopping area with a Best Buy, Wal-Mart, and GameStop near each other, ripe for the spree-ing. ^_^

It used to be best buy, but now we have a Gamestop in my hometown.

Toysrus is better for Pokemon pre-order incentives though (such as free stylus packs and such).

lol, this is exactly what I thought to myself.
I only choose gamestop because I want those points!


lol my best friend works at gamestop, so i know a bunch of the employees, there. i do like free points, but i cant seem to find much on the powerup site, that i actually want, aside from coupons, to buy more games lmao. although, one time i did get a lancer keychain(gears of war) from the site!

Depending on the popularity of the game, whether I pre-ordered it and how long it's been out, I will usually get it from either EB Games or JB Hi-Fi. JB is generally cheaper but EB has good deals and sometimes exclusive stuff. Target and K-mart are only cheap for the first week a game comes out and only if it's COD lol.

I'd get it at GAME, which is pretty much the only game store in my town.
