What I don't get about Wal-Mart is that they're so big on low prices... yet they never have deals on used games. I mean, they still have Halo Reach limited edition for full MSRP.

There is no one true CAG. Some are more "gamer," some are more "cheap" and certainly some are far more "ass."

I've found waaaaay more at GameStop than Walmart. Walmart has very, very few deals. At least GameStop sticks to market price. People need to chill with the GameStop hate.

Note: I don't hate Walmart, either, I just hate it for gaming-related purchases.

I am going to have to go with Walmart as I rarely buy games there. Though Gamestop is understandable as they practically have no (good) promotional sales.

Walmart. They never have games at a reasonable price.

I'm not a fan of Gamestop, but I will say that they atleast mark down the prices of their games along with most other retailers. Sometimes, rarely, being the cheapest retailer.

Plus the rewards points you get for each purchase.

I had a really annoying in-store pickup at a local Wal-Mart. I had to wait over 15 minutes for someone to help me. So Wal-Mart...you've got my vote!

While I loathe the way they treat games, I got some incredible deals at Gamestop this year especially since I bought a used Wii and loaded up on games for cheeeap. My vote went to Wal-mart.

Wal-Mart. Their customer service lines take forever. I love window-shopping at GameStop, though.

This one is personal for me. I've been interested in at least 2 separate K-mart deals, advertised in their circular no less, and they never bothered to get a single copy of the game in stock. One was Deus Ex, I don't remember the others.

Gamestop has had at least 4 nice deals this year, at least two of which I was able to do an online pickup and they had it waiting for me (Red Faction:Armageddon & Qubed).

As for Wal-mart: I think the last game I bought there was Phoenix Wright: Justice for All...that was in 2008.

Any reason why Target isn't on this list? They'd win hands down.

Walmart for having zero deals outside of Black Friday.

I need to do some Spring cleaning on my backlog.
