I buy my games:

I'll still continue to buy online as it is cheaper, I hate paying more than I need to for a game unless there's good reason plus I've never yet had a problem with games arriving on time (touch wood!)

I won't buy from the absolute cheapest store online, just the ones I know and trust or have heard good reports from others. Today I made my first purchase with ShopTo. I also use Amazon (Need for Speed: Most Wanted will likely come from there as I have some unused gift vouchers), Tesco Entertainment (very reliable delivery, always arrived on time by courier, not Royal Mail). In the past I've used play.com but I don't find them as well-priced these days as they used to be. Also bought from Zavvi and HMV (the latter only occasionally if there's a rare bargain that they have or in the case of Starhawk, the pre-order DLC).

I use GameCrawler to check out the cheapest game prices online. Then when I buy, I generally do it via TopCashBack which gets me a further discount.

If any of you don't use TopCashback, it's really worth signing up to - it's free (unlike Quidco which takes a cut of your cashback each year). It works with thousands of online retailers and in just under 2 years that I've been using it I've had £106 cash back.

If you would like to try it, please sign up using my referrer link http://www.topcashback.co.uk/ref/martok. If you use this, I get £10 once you've made some purchases using the service. You can then refer people yourself and earn £10 for each one referred.
