This. Unless I'm going to save an absolute assload of money, I'm not going to even think about it. I just did all my Christmas shopping on Amazon. Some people get a charge out of the shopping, though, it's like a sport or something.

Sucked. I work at Target, and instead of letting people inside in groups of 50-100, they decided to let everybody in at once. There was no plan for getting that many people to the checklanes, and eventually there was a line/mob of people that went around the perimeter of the store 2.5 times. Literally two and a half times. Fights broke out over people trying to get a place in the checkout line. Not even for items, but just a place in line to checkout.
Nevermind all the verbal abuse from entitled middle class ass wipes.

amazon didnt have much luck either. Most of the games had a waitlist as soon as the games became available. I managed to get Battlefield 3 Premium for $25, missed Forza Horizon and Ratchet and Clank collection but got Forza from the microsoft store instead for $15

I got the two games I was going for.
Wal-Mart had WWE 13 for $25 and L.A. Noire for $10.
However, I must say this was the most I got shoved around during Black Friday. The games I wanted were on two different sides of a game display pallet.
I got there early enough to get within arm's length of WWE (the game I wanted more) and as soon as the plastic wrap came off, everyone BUM RUSHED!!! The guy infront of me handed me a copy (super cool of him to do so) and I started heading for the outside of the crowd.
I just kept getting shoved around and had to yell out "PEOPLE!! I'M NOT YOUR COMPETITION ANY MORE!!! FIGHTING ME IS POINTLESS!!!!"
Wandered around to the other side and found a copy of L.A. Noire.

The best deals this year were from the MS store. If I didn't already have them, I'da jumped all over BL2, AC3 and Forza Horizon. Three games for the price of one, and so soon after launch, can't beat that.
It went by really well. I only tagged along to help carry a TV my aunt needed. The Walmart had balloon beacons for hot items, and had shelves scattered with more stuff (there were Wiis and DVD players EVERYWHERE). Luckily, I managed to score a MW3-edition wireless headset for $26.
I bought the Turtle Beach x12 headset from amazon for $34.99 and Borderlands 2 for $25. No tax and free 2 day shipping because I'm a prime member. No waiting in lines in the cold. Also got the Alien Anthology on blu ray the other day for $19.99.
