I'd be surprised if Best Buy didn't sweep these awards.

Yes, Best Buy will easily crush all the retailers for retailer of the year! I got so many deals for them the last 2 months.

For console games I don't know who I think has earned it but Amazon really left a bad taste in my mouth during the Black Friday week. All year long they had done fine and then just totally dropped the ball.

For direct downloadable games Amazon was amazing. Tony, over in the Amazon download thread has done an amazing job of building his own little community and has really gotten involved with the CAG-Amazon consumer. Easily the best deal of the year for me was Just Cause 2 for $2.50 and that came with a $5 credit so that I could purchase GTA IV for free. Amazing.

Agreed, Amazon really fell off the map as far as deals go for physical media this year. Their customer service treated me as well as they always did, and I'm grateful to Tony for the digital download thread he's maintained here, but for us console gamers, Amazon turned into a non-factor when looking for deals. Disappointing.

Gamefly and Best Buy, however, tore my wallet to shreds. They're getting my votes.

I can't believe I'm saying this but Best Buy wins this year hands down. They had the best deals on everything this year. That got my money for the first time in a long time.

Best Buy tried its best to put me out on the street. Who could say no?

First sentence says "8th annual", not 9th. Just FYI

Amazon, Kmart and Gamefly did very well on the video game deals for me during 2011 but went downhill near November. Luckily Best Buy picked up the slack for November and December 2011.

Most of my votes are going between amazon and bestbuy. Bestbuy had a great holiday season, and it was my first year using amazon (+ free prime as a student). I spent an even amount on both.

Enuf and Redjoey also got my votes :D.

I went with Best Buy for most of my votes, but Amazon did pick up a few. Did have a lot of great trade-ins through Amazon.

This might be a stupid question but do you have to vote in every category to get into the raffle?

Because I've never even heard of any of the nominees in the "
Best Independent/Specialty Online Game Retailer" category.
