Nobody likes the possibility of disc only games in shitty condition. Stop taking in shitty condition games and guarantee case/manual.

fye.com - a package came opened with no contents and they told me to file a claim with the post office as they weren't responsible. Fuck u fye.
stootsi.com - for their complete joke of the mystery box sale and the subsequent lack of customer service and cancelled orders. Fuck stootsi.

Gamestop.com for shipping damaged Collectors Edition items because they couldn't bother to ship it in a box instead of an envelope despite the fact that they charged extra fees for shipping due to the size of the product! Also, they added extra charges after I had already agreed and ordered at a lower price. Also, they lied to me about when I would get the bonus items & then tried to charge extra without me knowing if I had not checked.

Gamestop for canceling the promotional materials without warning. You would think that pre-ordering 1 month early would be long enough... In particular: the Mirror's Edge tote bag.

I was gonna say GoGamer for charging an arm and a leg for shipping, but they had a lot of good deal, so have to go with:

EBGames.

EB/Gamestop.com for the no guarantee on complete games. That and their online checkout breaking half of the time.

Xbox Live Marketplace. I'm choosing them due to their points system, that forces you to have left over points when then compells you to try and spend more so that your left over points don't go to waste. I think the market place needs to deal in dollars. Straight purchase amounts.
