If Steam doesn't count then I'd nominate GOG.com.

Play-Asia is awesome to begin with, but it gets bonus points for me this time around for introducing free shipping for many games, CDs, etc. in 2012.

I'll add a few to consider.

NIS America: They've improved over the years and they keep getting better. I also really like their special editions.

Stone Age Gamer: They do ok and sometimes have some really cool stuff. They're also the only American retailer that I know of that sells the Retrode.

Kickstarter: I'm not sure if this really counts, but I've used them a few times in 2012 to positive results. It's a pretty cool idea and soon I'll be getting my OUYA thanks to it!

gamedealdaily, though full of horror stories and lousy site design, has had some pretty good deals:)

Hey, you look like you have a lot of money; how about donating some of it to my Extra Life drive?

This is true. They're on top of their game now, for the most part. Other than the delays (which happened on Neptunia Victory today, lol).

I think I will go with the Indie Gala Store, just cause I think it deserves a mention.
