There are so many outlets to get games these days. Amazon, digital and all the various retail stores that are still left standing. Although the number of places to purchase games is shrinking, there are still plenty of options, all with different sales, bonuses, trade-in credits and promotions to lure your hard earned dollars to their specific business. So rather than wonder any longer, I thought I would ask you guys: where do you buy your games?
It’s a simple question, but an important one. And it can vary, depending on what game you are buying and what platform. If buying on the PC, we all will likely say Steam, but what console games and other times when physical media is the only way to go? Personally, I am all about Amazon. Their trade-in deals are better than GameStop’s and their prices are usually more inexpensive as well. Not to mention that supply is rarely an issue. If I go into GameStop or Best Buy, they are going to have Call of Duty, but what if I am looking for something a tad more obscure? Amazon fixes that issue for me.
When that fails, Best Buy is my retail store of choice, mainly because walking into GameStop is a nightmare for me. Best Buy is quick and easy and they don’t try to “nerd-bond” with me or sell my other games I don’t want or strategy guides I don’t need because I have the Internet, dummy! Not to mention the screaming children wanting M-rated games and their clueless parents asking if the Wii U is an add-on for the Wii!
Sorry, went off on a tanget there. So where do you choose to direct your currency when not filling Gabe Newell’s pockets via Steam? GO!
