    Hello guys,

    I buy my games most times from amazon or when I go shopping (offline).

    So what about you?

    Where do you buy your games (at best price) online? And where do you come from?

    Please provide us your favourite shop online (link to webpage maybe too).
    I'll make a list and keep it updated - best prices & service list :yikes:

    Amazon.ca
    GamesTracker

    I usually don't buy my games "online". I tend to buy a physical copy at a local retailer, (Fry's Electronics for me and much faster to reinstall), unless you have to I use the developer/publishers tools such as Steam, EA Link, etc

    That's ok, I would rather drive the 5 miles then to pay the shipping fee.

    Target and BB for just released games, and gamestop if I need something used. Though gamestop is kind of a ripoff.

    I buy a lot of games off craigslist and have gotten a lot of good deals there. I am getting Super Paper Mario for $25.00 today.

    I buy 80% of my games online. Ebay, Amazon, Best Buy, WalMart, and Target. The rest I've gotten at GameStop and WalMart in the store.

    Except for my first game which I bought because I was impatient, and a couple games received as gifts, all my games have come off eBay.

    same here. buying online seems like too much of a hassle for me, unless i don't have a choice for like a hard to find NES game or something. For some reason i just prefer buying something at a store rather than getting it from the internets.

    I buy my games at GameMania in Antwerp. It's only a five minute walk from my university and I happen to be there often. I did order 'Star Wars: The Best of PC' on the internet and I've been waiting for those games to arrive since the 12th of January. It was cheap though. :)

    I mostly buy mine from Best Buy, or Zellers.
    Those are the better places around me to go for games.

    Really it depends, sometimes online sometimes in store. I've bought from target, best buy, toys r us, amazon, and liongames.com, and ebay. Just depends where there is a good price and whether I want it now or can wait for delivery.

    I buy new games at Circuit City/Best Buy (Not online) and Gamestop for used games.

    I would buy things online if I didn't have to pay for shipping, but I do, so I rather drive than to pay for shipping.
