I'll buy from them when they make their games cheaper. Amazon still smokes their price on everything.

Amazon is awesome! I bought KoA for £20 when Game was selling it for £35. Brilliant deal :D

and staff members who don't have a clue. A friend of mine applied for GAME and there wasn't a single bad mark against him as in he never got sacked from previous jobs etc. Hes been a gamer as long as I have and he didn't even get the job! They gave it to some woman who clearly didn't have a clue

My local Game store isnt much better, if you dont mind waiting in line for 20mins to buy something that is

I dont go in there anymore, i go HMV, i find there prices can be a little cheaper and i dont have to pre-order special editions of games from there, i can speak to them over the phone and theyll reserve me a copy of what i want for nothing

This is their own fault really.. they should have recognized that there wasn't many major games coming out and prepared some quality sales and promotions to try and get people to spend more. Not that it'd do them much good.. most of their games on "sale" and pretty much all their pre-owned games cost more than they do brand new on amazon and shopto.
