Where do you guys buy your games?


Good spots with some good deals and/or cheap shipping.

Yeah, I go to best but, but there are so many good games I missed on 05 and 06. BB doesn't carry those old ones anymore.

Online stores are really your best bet for older games. B&M stores need to keep inventory fresh and new.

Online I use gogamer or amazon. Store, I only go to J and R computer world as they are cheaper than any other retail store in NYC.

Bestbuy or Futureshop preferably. If those two don't have it, I'll gi ti EB. The main reason I go to FS and BB over EB is cause they ACTUALLY have sales and you don't have to ask for the damn thing when buying it every time.

Check hot deals ... they always post the deals on games

and for me ... it's gogamer

just *today* i ordered Dungeon Seige II + Xpack and Jade Empire ... $30 shipped from gogamer!!
-that is basically 3 recent good games for bargain bin prices ... Jade Empire is still $30 at Circuit City.

If you are looking for newer games ... and sometimes "just release" sales, check the weekly ads for Target, CC and BB. .... often posted in our Hot Deals forum.

Is there a chance that Dungeon Siege 2 pack was everything all on 1 DVD?
I've been looking for something like that for a long time. I just have the core game on CD's.


I generally use Newegg and CDuniverse for my gaming needs. They normally have reasonable prices for current games and often have excellent deals on games that arent brand spanking new.

Steam sometimes because they have deals like they just recently had for Rockstar games on there and for preordering HL2 stuff. Gogamer is awesome and I buy a lot of games from them. Amazon and ebay too. I hardly buy from B&M unless I need the game NOW which isnt often or I get gift cards.

Far Cry has a dirt cheap DVD version at Newegg. If you ever lose or get sick of the CD's you may wish to check it out.

I buy them at Target haha! I'll get it as Bestbuy if I have a coupon or a $5 reward zone coupon.. Ebay for older titles though Im hesitant to buy online multiplayer games that require keys/

I used to buy from GameStop, but their PC section is so small now, it's ridiculous. I go to GoGamer or Steam now.

Usually GoGamer, or Amazon, or Steam. Usually if its on Steam, I go there first.
