Wal-Mart, you lost your place in my gaming needs.

After a recent visit to my local Wal-Mart last week, I’ve decided to no longer to buy my games(unless they are $20 or under)there. Amazon will now get my gaming business. They have much lower prices and a better selection than Wal-Mart. Don’t have to pay shipping on my orders that are $25 dollars and above, and if they are below, the price for shipping is low enough that I don’t care that it will not add to the price. I’ve gotten use wanting for my games to come in the mail, so that won’t be a problem.  I never like that the games at Wal-Mart are behind glass, I like to read the back of the case, on Amazon, not only is there descriptions, but videos and customer reviews as well. And you can’t even take a controller of a rack without asking a clerk to unlock it, more point to amazon. Don’t worry Wal-Mart, so still sell cheap food, electronics, DVDs, and many others, you just lost the right to serve my gaming needs.

    I recently ordered from Amazon to get Heavy Rain, as it was ~$10 cheaper than the local gamestop store. At the gamestop, despite a recent trend towards employing attractive gamer chicks (total schwing), they have this incredibnly annoying upsell policy – need the game guide for that? Pre-order any upcoming games?

    The only advantage, aside from the aforementioned eye and brain candy, is that they have actually played the games and can offer comparisons. I don’t want a game like Midnight Club or Ninja Gaidan – I like to beat my games, not throw my controller. But for games I know I already want (Battlefield series, Katamari series, Ratchet and Clank series) I’m ordering online from here on out.
