Where do you shop for games?

I use www.trademe.co.nz, its NZ's biggest trading/auction site.

Usually I get good deals, games sell quite cheap there.

I never buy games off the internet. One time I got scammed in a deal on eBay (who hasn't, right?) and since then I don't use on-line game stores. I prefer to physically go to the place and buy it. I usually get my games at Best Buy or Fry's Electronics.

I find games are really expensive in actual stores. I always buy second hand, and sell on the same site.

Auction site price, for a brand new game, $72, store price, $118

A place called Play N Trade.

I like it because they sell older games, unlike the local chain store we have here.

Ive never been in a scam situation before though, because I only deal with people with good reliability ratings etc.

Apparently there are two kinds of Play N' Trades, the chain-like one's, and the more independent style one's.

We have Ebay here in NZ too, but it sucks, no-one uses it.
