Dood, where do you buy your games?

Started searching around for some games that I wanted - either don't have them any longer and want a new copy, or I need it and never had it. Games like Grim Fandango and Planescape: Torment (since I'm mostly focusing on RPGs and more narrative-style graphical games). I noticed that these two games are no longer available on Amazon and I started poking around some of my normal websites:, ebgames, eBay (I think I'm the only wired person in the U.S. that has never actually *bought* something via eBay), etc.

I started wondering, though, where other people bought their games. Where do you get the best deals? Or is there no mystical land of game plenty, especially for poor researchers?

Inquiring minds want to know.

i get my out of print games for research purposes from , where they will tell you if the game is still in print and where you can get it such as grim fandango you can get from chips and bits if it wasn't out of stock:)

Nice - thanks Jeremy.

Unfortunately, no one seems to have Planescape in stock. *sigh*

Grim Fandango is also available at LucasArts, but I'd rather pay $9.99 than $15 ;)

Ah, I forgot Moby Games as well:

Has reviews, but also lists prices.
