May be moving back to Phoenix if I decide to take my old job back.

My favorite game place was GameCrazy but I know they're closed all over.
Used to hit the one by Target.
Bout to expand my game collection.

Where are the best places to hit.

Honestly? GameStop for newer stuff. Bookman's for the older stuff, and Zia for the weird-ass stuff. XD Also, Zia = overpriced for new

Zia is overpriced for anything. Bookman's too except for actual books.

Uh... trick question... dcfox waxes and JFD hasn't sprouted nub fuzz yet.

Eh, I dunno about this list, and I work for one of those mentioned places. If you can get away with doing things with Amazon it's still a bit better than Gamestop for newer things because of the $20 credits you can get rolling. Bookmans is alright for older stuff but Play n' Trade is up and coming on that front. I would say CAG for the weird stuff.

Personally, Gamestop is best when a B2G1 is going, you have stuff to trade in, or you really want that pre-order bonus.


Soo...... how about some type of NARP for Phoenix? Eh eh?

Oh, and don't forget you have the bonus of the occasional deal at Fry's Electronics (2 locations.)

Yes i bought some stuff at Frys when they had sell when i went grocery store.
I like Amazon but also like just looking at stuff to see what's out there.

I like Play n Trade, sometimes you can find better deal than GS. Got a like new copy of Gears 2 GOTY for $10

Will try all.
What's NARP? It that like LARPing?

Well, it's a party. You can have food and drinks and games. Whatever you want. NARP just means you get together and party! Sometimes people throw big LAN network parties, some just to play Rockband with a bunch of CAG.

First time looking in the regional deals section and thought I'd shout out here. Born and raised all my life in the Phoenix Metro area. If there is any kind of group of Phoenix CAGs I'm down to join.

I always forget about this section and usually tend to look at the deals only. I know I am as guilty as anyone, but it'd be nice to see more activity on here for the AZ contingent. There was the Metro TRU that closed down last month, not a word of it here. I heard a pretty good rumor from the manager/owner of the 7th Street PNT that the Bethany Home store was closing.

Has anyone found any small shops that sell games? I know there are some like Fallout Games, FixAndPlay, and to a lesser extent Play N Trade. I am always looking for somewhere new to check out games and selection in the hunt to complete my various collections.

Well, near my area (Gilbert) there is a store called GameZone, though they are a bit pricey I have to admit. I am wondering the same thing actually.

Right now I am curious to see if anyone knows about DIRT 3 lowering in price. And even Thief Deadly Shadows for the PC. I missed out on Dirt 3 being 15 bucks on Amazon! :(

Anyways, nice to meet everyone!
