Gamestop is one of two major retail video game boutique stores (the other being EB Games). While I frequent both, I've been a better fan of EB Games for several reasons. Gamestop rarely discounts their items. The result of this is that their prices are usually much higher than competitors, even places like Target. Also, since their removal of all games from the 16-bit era, their selection has been sparse. If you're looking for a good deal or a wide variety, EB is a better bet. However, if you're a current generation kind of person, Gamestop just might be the place for you.
