This. Depends on the game.

When the price has dropped. Seriously, today's games drop almost half the price withing 2 months. No, not ALL, but a lot of them. Games like CoD, GTA and Nintendo titles stay strong because of their ability to sell well.

Also, thanks to growing number of stores that are selling games, prices on them varies even more.

Buying at Gamestop is a very bad ide. Simply because of their buy/sell used games. The price on new games in store are ridicules high.

The 5 Finger Discount is the only way I get my games.

Back in high school, all it took was stolen Blockbuster cards.

It also varies for me, depends on the game. Some I get on release, most I wait for a price drop on and I have a rental subscription for those games I want to play but not quite enough to buy.

I'm not obligated to tell you anything about how much I pay for my games, or how much money I make.
