I want to buy a few playstation 3 games, but everything is too pricey :/

1) Shop online for bargains?
2) Wait for birthday/holiday season and ask as gifts?
3) Ask for giftcards if no one wants to buy you games?
4) Trade in other games towards the purchase of new ones?
5) ???

No hell no. The absolute best time is black friday in terms of quantity of games on sale and % of discount. They do sales on recently released games and usually it takes many months for those games to go on sale for that price again. For instance XCOM Enemy Unknown was 25 at Wal-Mart and still retails for 39.99 and hasn't been on sale for less than 29.99. Same goes for Battlefield 3 Premium. Other than that there are deals all throughout the year. Check cheapassgamer.com.

Picked it up a couple months ago when it was on sale for PS3 at Best Buy for $14.99. However, yea..Black Friday is the best time to buy...actually, the entire week leading up to it is a great time because of Amazon's sales.

Personally, I find the best times to buy for me are at the end of every month during Gamefly's used game sales. They're usually really cheap and they all come with the unused online passes/DLC that comes in the box.
