Walmart... The stores are scary, the parking lots are even scarier, their game prices never go down and they have really old games at full price!

The only game I purchased at a B&M this year was Skyward Sword at Gamestop.

Pre-ordered the remote bundle and was told they would be opening an hour early for the release. Call weeks later on the day before release to confirm them opening early. Get there in the morning and though there are staff inside, they tell us they're not opening until their regular time.

So after chilling in the parking lot with a bunch of fuming customers for an hour I get in and the cashier tries to convince me I pre-ordered a wrestling game as well. >>

I agree with this, there are good GameStops (I'm lucky that there are several in my area) but I've never had a good experience with trying to buy a game at Wal-Mart

I can't believe anyone would pick gamestop over walmart. At least I was able to get some good deals at gamestop this year. Isn't CAG for cheap ass gamers? By the sounds of it people just like to hate a company more than actually have a reason for it.

Looks up. The poll is for WORST, not least cheapest.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

I know Gamestop will win as always, but I put in my annual vote for Walmart. I just can't stand going there in general and it is even worse for video games. Not having consistent clearance pricing drives me nuts.

I've gotten some good deals at GS, and I can use my trade-in credit to make them even cheaper. Anyone who knows how to be a good CAG would not vote GS ;). Plus, just recently I was able to call Gamestop and have them hold Skylanders figures my kids were looking for until I could get up there later in the evening - no other retailer would do that.


This.
I vote Walmart.

Gamestop is the easy choice here. The poor customer service, the whoring of their preorder program, the whole Deus Ex fiasco, the bad trade-in prices, the gutted games at full price, ect. I could go on forever.

Gamestop here hands down, got a few decent deals there but for the most part deals there are a joke and the fact that they open all new copies of every game they get in and reseal them makes me avoid them at all costs unless a deal is way too good to pass up. Walmart has basically no deals at all and finding someone to grab a game from is a pain but at least you don't have new games opened and resealed then sold as new.

Definitely GameStop this year. Remember the issue where they pulled the free codes from Portal 2 I think it was and sold them without telling people? Yeah.

Wal-mart, mainly because every time I went there, the people were not helpful in the least, and nobody was staffed in the electronics department of the store.
