What is this "play" you speak of? I thought these were nothing but decorative boxes to line my shelves with.

It's something I used to do a long time ago...then I found cag.

My vote goes to Amazon. Their gaming prices/deals have gone way down the hole. 2012 ended what was a good run for Amazon. $20 credit deals were all but gone. BF was all matched, and not even all the way to other retailers. Their own deals (i.e. not price matched) were all but non-existant. Lightning deals are jokes.

Normally I'd say Gamestop as their online deals are basically non-existant, but AMAZON wins it this year. Like everyone's been saying it's like they just threw in the towel and stopped trying. Their $20 credits were what kept me a Prime Member and made me choose them even when their pre-order bonuses sucked. This year was the first time since I became a Prime member 4-5 years ago that I decided to NOT renew my membership. To add insult to injury they started charging tax in my state (PA) making their "deals" just a little bit worse.
The end of an era, RIP Amazon.

Actually that is not amazon's fault the state legislators(SP?) in harrisburg voted for us to pay taxes on online orders. So amazon was just obeying the law.

I agree with this, at least Amazon honors their deals and promotions.

Forgive me if I have a little nuance to my worldview, and am not a black/white ideologue who can't grasp complexity.

 

This is perhaps the most ironic thing I have ever seen on CAG.

No online store alienates gamers more than Toys R Us. They have THE WORST shipping charges on the web for games. Why is a game $9 for shipping?

The worst part is that games and game accessories are excluded from EVERY free shipping promo on their site. They usually have spend $xx.xx and shipping is free. Then in the fine print, it excludes video games. WHY? That's ALL it excludes! Really?! A swing set or turtle sandbox ships free but not a game? They don't even make their games shop runner eligible.

I can't count how many times I've been about to take part in one of their deals only to see shipping raise the price by $15.

No thanks.

I understand that (That's why I said insult to injury), but I'm a CAG and now have to pay tax on Amazon which was previously tax free. Do I really need to explain that more?

Used games usually are disc only and scratched up
New games have a chance of coming resealed or gutted with price stickers on the cases and unlike the store versus buying online, you can't just say you don't want a gutted copy when they go to pull

Amazon. I was a big fan of their daily video rental deals, which all but died in 2012 as they only feature deals for buying movies these days. They've also done weird things like greatly limiting one of the movie rentals that I paid for from supporting all devices to just Tivo and PC, which made no sense.

Toys R Us
- Major delays with an already released game... got delayed, AGAIN. took almost 5 days to even process my order... cant even keep track of their own stocks.


Also for those using amazon, you need to eagle eye products. Amazon prices flucuate on demand, I got KHDDD for $19 on amazon, and now its back up again. You can also cry wolf saying package was damaged but still usable and get 20~30% refunded back to you everytime. So suddenly $40 becomes 30 or less!~ + Prime = quick... If product is under $50 too, you can say it was never delivered if it WAS delivered... (has to say front door or something) and theyll refund no questions asked, take advantage of their indian live chat support line to be CAGGY >_> show them what happens when you outsource lol
