Where do you get your games from?

I normally go to GameStop (don't hate me). Of course we all know what's wrong with them as a company, but the one around the corner from me is full of pretty cool guys and the other customers are usually cool. There's also this place called GamePlay down the street from me which is where I go for my retro gaming needs. I'm one of those gamers who won't hesistate to buy Used, long as it works like it should.

Mostly Amazon, GAME, and sometimes HMV. Maybe Tesco if they have a good deal. For 2nd hand/retro games Amazon Marketplace, or Chillout Games.

Usually Gamestop but I've been avoiding it lately because of one of the employees there. I like the rest of them, but if that one dude's there, it just ruins it for me.

So lately I've been going to Best Buy more. Only going to Gamestop if I pre-order something there because of exclusive or pre-order bonuses.

If Amazon has a good sale, I'll buy there and wait the two days for it to get here. (Prime shipping FTW)

Gamestop and Amazon, sometimes even Ebay for a lot of GC games or something but it's been forever since I've done that.

Not every GameStop is full of malicious evil employees.

Admittedly, Zero also goes to GameStop usually. Yeah, there are things that really annoy Zero about the company and what they put pressure on their employees to do, but from Zero's experience you just have to find the right store. Back when it was Electronics Botique/EB Games in Zero's hometown, he loved it. Zero was kind of a mallrat back then (he might still be) and would hang out there and chat with the guys who worked there, some of which have gone on to become some of Zero's longest running friends. Zero even ended up working there myself for a while.

Things were a lot less strict back then; An associate's hours didn't depend on how many pre-order sales they landed and there wasn't nearly as much pressure put on you to be a pushy salesman type. When Zero lived in Greensboro there were somewhere around a dozen GameStop stores and out of that many Zero only found one that he didn't mind going to. Actually, Zero enjoyed going there. It all depends on what kind of people work there, who the manager is and how he likes to do things.

One thing Zero has discovered about GameStop, though, is that if you're a regular customer and they know you, they will hook you up. Zero can't tell you guys how many times they've handed him free pre-order bonus stuff for games that Zero didn't pre-order or in most cases never even bought.

So far Zero likes the one at the mall here in Winston-Salem pretty okay but Zero has only been there a couple times, so we'll see. Zero judges GameStop on a case-by-case basis.

GameStop aside it's usually Play-Asia or Amazon, and if Zero wants a brand new, old game he sometimes goes to GameQuestDirect.com.

GameStop. They've always treat me right, so I've never gotten the hate towards them.

It's the trade in values (yes they have to make a profit but, c'mon), and the fact that apparently they train their salesmen to be basically obnoxious when it comes to pressing Pre-orders and Power Up cards, and some of their practices for determining the conditions of games (i.e., selling opened and gutted games as "New" for full price). Though I've never run into a significant conflict with them, there are more than enough horror stories about them as well, and I don't put it past them because they have attempted to sell me opened and gutted games at full new price before.
