I just go to Game stop when I want something immediately. When you order online, there's a waiting period due to shipping and handling. You pay extra for these.

Yes, I like to walk when it's just right there.

some will charge shipping but free after a certain limit

i miss the days when amazon will not charge tax and provide free shipping for orders $25+

i bought a lot of games from them

but i'm going to best buy or price match every now and then at the local stores for my games

Unfortunately, as I tend to buy any game I want (lol), I didn't find anything except for a one of the games that are on my "not mandatory to buy list" (Tales of Zestria). When I asked the cashier to check out the used copy, it was all scratched up. I advised him that someone probably forgot to power-clean it before throwing it into the sleeve (used to happen when I worked at Gamestop eons ago) and decided not to get it either way.


why not check their online site before going to the store-- save time and gas that way-- in case they don't have the game instock

most stores will allow you to check inventory -- that way you will not waste your trip going there

as for buy 2 used games get one free deal-- bestbuy has the same deal

Bestbuy also allows you to check trade in price--

i tried it a game i just pay 35+ tax ? is worth $15! if i traded it in!

just sell on craiglist to another gamer for more profits-- cut out these middle man!

The brick and mortar store that I used to go to was pretty good (I bought my Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds Collectors 3DS from there), but I don't use the website anymore. I reserved a pre-order for Lightning Returns Final Fantasy XIII and they kept declining my perfectly valid credit card and when I tried to change cards, it wouldn't let me do it and cancelled my pre-order. Found the same game a few months later at FutureShop (If you've never heard of it, they're part of Best Buy) for cheaper and with the pre-order bonus code included. So no, I don't use EB Games/Gamestop anymore. I buy my games from either Steam, PSN, Nintendo Store, XBL, or Amazon if I want a physical disc.

I'm usually "in the area" when I stop by Gamestop - since it's right next to the grocery store and across the street from Target (two of the stores that I'm almost always visiting anyways for whatever reason). I don't trust Gamestop's website- never have, never will. Mostly because every time I've ordered something from them it's taken forever to get to me and it's been the wrong game/accessory altogether. I've got things refunded each time, but would just spend the "refund points" in-store. I'd rather keep brick and mortar stores going, even if it's the evil company known as Gamestop.

Not buying from Gamestop anymore. I find that pre-ordered games from Amazon have DLCs and less prices.

Once or twice a year for a midnight launch.

Sometimes I'll walk in and do an impulse buy.

I never trade anything in there.

I think I might have bought a game guide for Morrowind at gamestop over 14 years ago.

I used to all the time. Then I started using PC.

I would only shop at Gamestop if I had to pre-order an actual game console. Outside if that....NO.

I usually go to GameStop to get preorders or used games. If I needed a console or stuff like that I'd usually go to target because they have ok warranties. I don't go much for new games because I would feel bad if I broke it
