I usually shop around a bit. Amazon, eBay and in stores. I never pay full price for a game. If I can knock off a bit by buying used I do occasionally - especially if there are the 3-for-2 deals. I'm a sucker for those. But if the new price is around 20 then I don't mind paying that. I'd say about half my games are used and half are new.

Ummm it all depends. Sometimes I buy new, sometimes i wait for a price drop and some games i buy used so there should be more varied options in this poll.

In a store, with cash.

Sometimes on launch day, sometimes after launch but before a price drop, sometimes after a price drop, and sometimes used.

This. When I buy games on Amazon, I vary between new copies and used copies. If I get a used copy, I will get it in Very Good or Like New condition.

I haven't seen a single game worth $60 yet imo. I always buy used.

all of the above, if it's a new game I'd rather buy it new. If it's a old game new or used doesn't matter. I'll also buy digitally when it comes to old games.

If it's a game I really want i'll preorder. If it's a game I really really want I'll even buy the collector's edition.
