Wii, DS, PS2, and PS3 - Amazon, or EB Games if they have a good pre-order bonus.
Wii U and 3DS - eShop.

Not sure where you got this $100 thing though, because EB Games is currently listing pre-played Skyward Sword for $40, but they're out of stock. Makes sense, as that game is currently out of print (I think). Twilight Princess, which got a Nintendo Selects printing, is going for $15 pre-played or $20 brand spanking new.

Amazon has listings for Skyward Sword as low as $30.
eBay as low as $32.

That $100 price you cited is way off of any retailer.

EDIT: Checked this ozgameshop.com and they seem to be UK-based and ship PAL games. Odd, considering you also mentioned EB Games, which is almost exclusively Canadian (it's been rebranded as GameStop in USA and GAME in UK). Am I missing something?

When I was a kid, me and dad would buy them at Swap Meets (that's how old school we are) to buy it cheap. Now, just stores.

Any store that has what I'm looking for. Nowadays it seems only certain stores have certain games for certain consoles. It's getting annoying.

Believe it or not, I've had a lot of luck finding games at Fred Meyer recently. Although, all of my recent game purchases were 3DS games, so at least they have a good selection of 3DS games. :)

Nowadays I get my games in general in the bargain bin at Walmart, at Costco, at a liquidation store or at EB Games (usually used copies).

EDIT: Sometimes I get them on Amazon

I research to buy in the cheapest place. here in brazil the prices are pretty much stactic and unchanging so when I see a game's price on a store's site I can go to the physical shop and the price will be the same. sady the cheapest place is always about twice the price in USA... gaming is a really hard to maintain hobby in Brazil.....
oh this thread is about Wii.... I don't buy Wii games since my Wii broke 2 years ago......

looking forward to Codename S.T.E.A.M.

Toys R Us and GameStop. I try to buy at Toys R Us since it's close to the house and they have good deals, but sometimes I'll trade in a cellphone or something and get some good GameStop credit that I use. I also go where there are good, exclusive preorder deals. Besides these, I'll always grab a game at Wal-mart, K-Mart, Amazon.com etc depending.
