Wal-Mart: small selection, older games at high prices (even PS2 games), don't have the improved version (director's cut, complete edition, etc.) of a game because they still have stock of the initial release version, and no sales except for Black Friday.

The only time in recent memory that I went to wal-mart for a game was when AC:R was released and they had a pricing error. Otherwise, nothing. My vote is for Wal-Mart.

Gamestop, no I don't want to preorder anything, no I don't want to buy a used 360, no I don't to buy a "new" opened game, no I don't want to renew my PUR that expires in 11 months...

MSRP land. AKA Wal-Mart

Gamestop will still win anyway.

Gamestop. Not only is it ruining the industry with its used game sells, it's also screwing the customers with terrible trade in values and the worst used game prices on the market.

My vote goes to Wal-mart.

I wouldn't nominate Gamestop as they at least had a few sales last year especially if you are a Power Up rewards member (but only a few). I don't think Walmart ever had any deals all year, and I wouldn't count BF.

Walmart. I still find things from years ago at release MSRP.

Gamestop, because while Wal-mart and Target sell games, I wouldn't call them game retailers where I'm from.

I have to drive 25 mins to get to a game store near me. The two choices are Walmart and Gamestop. I drive 40 mins to get to Best Buy and Target. While they all suck as game retailers. Best Buy has consistently let me down over and over. I'm not just talking game sales and deals. I despise Best Buy with so much passion!!!


If you have a Gameboy Micro for sale, I would like to buy it from you!

Best Buy, I've gotten some great online deals from them, but I've NEVER found a deal in-store.

They pm BB.com so BB.com is BB in-store same thing. Plus, their best deals via coupons can only be gotten in-store.

my vote goes to Walmart since I've easily pm'd Gamestop10+ times last yr. Even getting a pm @ Walmart was the pits. Manager kept asking for the ad even though the sign right next to him says "you don't need to bring the ad" even their commercial said it.

Gamestop......I can't remember the last good deal I found there. In fact I believe I bought nothing in 2012 from GS!
