    I usually go to my local Gamestation to get the latest games. In terms of online, I would say that I buy games mostly from Amazon.co.uk and Play.com.

    Ditto what Byuakuya said. Gamestation is better for second hand games, so I tend to buy from them.

    Game Crazy. There is one right next to my house, they give you 12 free rentals when you buy a console, pretty good deals on trade ins and used games. (especially if you have a MVP card)
    I don't buy too many games online so there is no specific store I buy from when I do.

    I use Game Rush (in blockbuster atm) for trade ins. Gamestop gives you crap.

    The highest I've ever seen offered is $35 for TP.

    otherwise it's like...10% of retail value.

    GAME, because its the closest to me I guess.

    And Play.com online, because it rocks.

    I usually buy at best buy but if I don't feel like driving far I go to Wal-mart. The gamestop where I live isn't very good but I go there every once in a while. I never order online because I hate to wait and the one time I did the game I got didn't work. I will order online if you can't buy the game at the store anymore.

    Always rent my games from Blockbuster, sometimes Family Video if I owe money at Blockbuster lol. In my town of 30,000 people, we have one gamestore...Ultamite Gamezone but they tend to rip people off, charging $4 less than what a name game would cost, if it's used. < Did that last sentence make sense? Idk I'm tired. I've only bought one game off the internet in my life, Morrowind GOTY from Ebgames...great place.

    Gamestation has the best deals in the UK... But it also stinks horribly of BO and the staff all look like socially rejected goths - who weren't cool enough to hang out with even the regular (socially rejected) goths...

    The store smells of BO (Dundee's store in particular) because they allow trade-ins on old games/systems. This is good in one way as it means I can beat a game and get maybe £10-25 back if I trade it in against my next game...
    But it allows the NEDS/Chavs and basic scumbags of society to try and flog all their old sh*t cause they want the latest Fifa game, or just to try raise some cash for smack/crack/buckfast/white lightning... These people smell bad and are always lurking in Gamestation, therefore the gamestation stores smell bad.
    The Decor is a nice bland grey and black - it would (maybe) have looked good in the early 80s - (but that doesn't mean it looks good in a retro way now).
    The staff are expertly trained to "not" stack the shelves regularly, and also they are also expertly trained to "never" hoover the floor or try to tidy up. (Thats what you get for employing weirdos - at minimum wage).
    Ensuring that all staff maintain a complete lack of proper social skills, and the above mentioned points, makes Gamestation a "unique" shopping experience.

    Still... I'm not f*cking shopping at woolworths...

    (There are a few normal people working at Gamestation - but they are outnumbered 10,000 to 1...)

    I refuse to buy things from EB Games. I hate the way they do business.

    I buy most of my stuff from www.gameswarehouse.com.au or Big W.
