Where Do You Buy Your Video Games?

Illustration for article titled Where Do You Buy Your Video Games?

The daily Speak-Up on Kotaku doesn't have to be an essay. Sometimes all it takes is a simple question. Commenter Rueli is fed up with GameStop, and wants to know where everyone else goes for their retail gaming fix.


Gamestop finally broke the last straw. I've dealt with their crap for too long and now turn a new leaf...

So now the question: Where do you guys suggest I buy my games? Amazon?

What did GameStop do that was so eggregious? Corporate policy stuff or employees? The sheer amount of "special" preorder crap they get is a little annoying. It's almost like bragging.

I actually like the guys at my nearest GameStop. They know I won't buy into any of the sales crap so we just chat games and I pick up what I want.

I find Best Buy to be the one full of automatons who seem to be frightened out of any sort of individuality. At any attempt at small talk they get all shifty-eyed.

If I decide to get something used or browse, I go got GameStop and root around.

If I want something specific or new I usually use Amazon because free 2Day with Prime + it's usually a couple bucks cheaper for new ones.

I don't have any Apple gadgets so if I want digital I'll almost always use Steam.
