    Hey USA people, what websites do you use to buy video games from? Amazon is the obvious one but can you recommend anything else?

    Only ever used Gamestop -but isn't Amazon having one of their game deals Friday, like, right now?

    Edit:
    Right now it's Sims 3 :(  but there are new mystery deals at 6:00, 9:00, and 11:00.

    I've been using Goozex to swap games since a friend got me into it. So far, I've only had great experiences. Also, Half.com usually has some good prices, especially if you're looking for hard to find games, or don't care as much about the condition, as you can find some great bargains.

    I've been able to take almost all of my gaming purchases down to steam, but that's a PC only kind of thing as its digital distribution.

    Half.com is great if you're looking for older stuff. You may be able to find some good deals on new stuff too.

    Amazon, gamefunk.com and playasia.com. I've used NCSX in the past and Gamestop once (to get the Mass Effect LE).

    I check Cheap Ass Gamer every so often, people will chime in if a site does bad business.

    Ebay:
    videogamesplus.ca for me.

    They have a handy section on the 360 page that tells you which games are region free
