Amazon mostly, but by the time I buy games, they're not new anymore, so I don't have much choice but to buy online.

Still playing Divinity OS2 that I bought there last summer for about $25 -- turned out to be a lot better than I expected it to be so I'm glad I gave it a shot.

Also picked up NBA 2K18 for $10 and XCOM2 Collection for about $20. Before that it was Anthem, Tekken 7, Pillars of Eternity, Inquisition, Overwatch (etc) and I returned Gravity Rush 2, Shadow Tactics, Wipeout, Fifa 19, and a lot of other games that I can't remember. Also bought a few systems from there, including a pre-owned 360 that I still use to play Rocksmith a few days a week. Usually trade in games I don't play anymore and save even more on new games.

With Gamestop, it's more about the fact that I can check games out before I buy them than anything else, but they also have a lot of solid games in the $20 range that I can't find anywhere else.

Redbox is the other place I buy them since they usually have good deals. Missed out on Everybody's Golf for $10 but picked up AC Odyssey for $20. Even better for checking games out since they were free with certain movie rentals -- played through Spider-Man, God of War, and Shadow of the Tomb Raider over a few weekends and usually didn't have to pay at all most of the time. Bought Odyssey since it was one of the few games I couldn't finish via rental and helped me solidify my decisions not to buy games like Dishonored 2, Rage 2, KH3, Prey, Monster Hunter and Borderlands.

Last one is Gamefly -- don't use it as often due to the long turnaround time on popular games but I'll sign up for a month or two when I see something coming out that I know will take a while to finish (Persona 5, RDR2, Nier) or that I'll probably buy based on reputation or replay value (Skyrim, Cyberpunk, Starfield). You get most of the money you spent for the month back when if keep the game, which is usually about $10 to $40 off depending on how old the game is.

amazon and PSN

these days, mostly PSN. i'm not one of those idiots who are like "digital is the worst idea ever", it's got pros and cons, but so does physical, and i love the "you can't DL digital after the servers go down" yeah, in like two decades, and it's not like you're gonna delete physical games either, since you can't update them if the servers go down.

but PSN works really good for me, because i LOVE the preloading (mostly caught up with the games i want, so mostly getting new games), as well as the immediacy of being able to download the s*** and play it within an hour (depending on the game, of course), instead of waiting half a f***ing week and have no idea when it'll come. i rarely actually want anything in my life, and waiting for things i actually do want is really irritating for me, so the quickness of just downloading it is definitely a big perk.

but amazon's great too. cheaper prices than most digital sales, and they're cheap all the time (amazon's people trying to get some of their money back, so it's got to be cheaper, digital isn't the same thing, there's no 'we need to ship this' at all, digital sales are entirely basically ads, going "hey, this game's interesting, right? cheap right now too, get it while it's hot"), and it'll get taken right to your door. but, if you want a more immediate physical purchase, places that sell electronics in general are kinda a good choice. wal mart, best buy, target, etc. even some pawn stores deal in games. but if you want as big a collection as PSN, definitely amazon for physical.

Best buy
PSN digital

Lately have been buying a lot from psn. Its soooo convenient to have my games in a download than discs. Also I share my account with a friend so when he buys a game, and vice versa, we both get to "own" it.
