I used to buy my games from Wal-Mart or download them off of PSN.

Most of the games I buy are long out of print or production as I collect for older systems. Retro game shops, thrift stores, pawn shops and online purchases are where the vast majority come from. Lots of people go to garage sales but I live in an area where those are rare due to bylaw enforcement. As for new games, GameStop, Amazon and my local independent game stores are my go to choices other than digital purchases.

Did you ever get Hyperkin's Retron 5 that plays 80's and 90's Nintendo and Sega games?

For my new Xbox, from nowhere, because I will just be using the Game Pass to get access to games on the platform. For my PS5, it is mostly from Amazon, although there are some games I just get from the PSN Store as it's easier and quicker.

I used to buy games from walking into your game store and buying discs versions of the game :) back then, I did not have good internet speeds, so I can't download games rather than discs drives, discs drives that we no longer have anymore. I still have some of those games to this day, back from 2013.

Now I just get them off from Steam or online stores and have them downloaded. Go onto third-party stores and get games that are cheaper than on steam. All digital downloads. Stoe I go to are EB games store

If its a modern game then almost exclusively on Steam, but every now and then I'll buy a game off the PSN for the PS4.
For older games, like for my Megaten collection, I buy pretty much everything off eBay.

Just got another DLC from a third party store for steam and saved 40% then the cost if I was to get it on steam.

Online stores or a local game store. Used to go to gamestop, but not liking their outlook anymore.

Generally on the PlayStation Store, since digital copies get much better discounts in sales than physical..

..kinda makes me wonder why I've bought the full-blooded PS5, but I guess it's just preferable to have the option!
