I've gotta admit that in previous years I have dodged GAME as they were too expensive IMO but this year I have started using their website and in most cases I have gotten games a couple of quid cheaper than at Play or Amazon, plus the fact that the reward card system is very good and the standard free delivery option is first class as opposed to all their competitors who go 2nd class, is now pretty much the only place I go for games any more, its just a shame that the instore prices are so comparatively high but I guess they are no different to the prices at HMV or Woolies.

I also need to give kudos where it is deserved for their range of pre owned PS2 games, £2 or £3 on games like GTA3/VC, Gran Turismo 3, Getaway and MGS2 have really plugged the gaps between decent PS3 releases.
