Game Stop. Since their new game deals generally aren't competitive (at least for 360). The rewards program is pure mystery to me ........lots of point tracking & accumulation going on to work up to a crappy key fob or some other flea market trinket.

I think gamestop with the price matching trend they are falling behind in that, also your trade in value seems to be worthless almost. The only thing I like is I can find a random old game there BUT half the time I get them the disc are scratched or they dont give me the disc (happens about once a year, though I only go about 4-5 times a year).
I would say WalMart but they arent huge in games it would be like complaining about the game prices at Kohls......$29.99 for an old legos game no thank you sir!

Gamestop. No deals to be found.


75% off GameCube games was good. Granted, you needed to find a store that actually had some. Luckily I live in Brooklyn and they have like 10 over here. :mrgreen:

I get the people that are saying Walmart, they don't have a ton of game deals (although their Black Friday was more than solid), but they aren't really primarily a game retailer, so I don't mind. They are just sort of neutral in my mind.

On the other hand, games is all Gamestop does, and I think they do a pretty terrible job at it. Their "new" (for some value of 'new') game prices are pretty terrible - which is almost primarily what I buy, I like my games to be in good condition - and on top of that, I actively dread going in the store. I don't want to be bothered about pre-orders, rewards points, etc. Their business model just bums me out, I guess.

So what I'm trying to say is I nominate Gamestop =)

Was about to say WalMart, but they had a good black friday sale. The real loser is Meijer - you will never, ever find a video game clearance or a good sale there.

Sears because they pretty much killed their gaming section, which used to be good for clearance items.

KMart

They went from being the place I was most likely to shop at to the place I didn't buy a single game from all last year.

I have always voted Gamestop in this category but I think Wal-Mart gets the nod this year. Like others have said, there is no reason to shop there outside of Black Friday. At least Gamestop started running sales here and there and they're my go-to place for niche RPGs. Kmart fell hard but at least they started offering gaming coupons again albeit inconsistently.

WalMart hands down the worst. MSRP for all games, won't price match their own website.

I'm going with hhgregg. They are atrocious. Forget about a sale, damn near everything in their extremely small game section is $3-$5 above MSRP. There is no worse game retailer. They are a joke. hhgregg for worst of the year.
