Profile Critique (

GOOD: Game Stop has many user friendly tabs to guide the user to his or her gaming platform.
You can sort the search into different categories which would help make your search faster and efficient.

BAD: The location search is in a spot where the site search would normally be, which is the left side. The site search is at the top and it confused 8 out of 10 people that I asked. This reduced speed efficiency on searching as it drives people nuts when they see that the cant type more than 6 characters and later found the actual search engine.
