    The GameStop guys at my local store are pretty awesome. I go in there after class just to talk to them sometimes.

    Every gamestop I have been to in the past few years open every "new" game and put the disc in a sleeve behind the counter and the open case on the wall. I am NOT okay with that since there is no way to know if you are getting a new game or a used game.

    Much as I'll take a cheap shot at ponyfags whenever given the chance, if that fangame (... that is what it is, yeah?) is gettin' shut down by the copyright owners, t'is a damn shame. Always hate t' see those kind'a things happen.

    Still don't see why companies are stupid enough t' do such things in the first place. All it does is alienate fans and destroy free promotional material. Ya don't see Konami delivering Cease and Desist notices t' Duel Network.

    Then again,
    it shows what demographic they are aiming their product towards.

Not t' mention the fact that Gamestop wouldn't be in bloody business if they suddenly lost used games as a profitable business venture. 60%~ of their profit comes outta the gaming companies' pockets.
    It's definitely not a monopoly. Used games can be found everywhere. It's just that in my case, not really.

    Again, you miss the point. All stores hire their fair share of douchebags avoidable or otherwise, but Gamestop is infamous for hirin' shitty employees. Their workers probably have the same average on-the-job incompetency as your typical shithole fast food joint in NYC. A few gems in the rough here 'n there don't make a claim worth mining.
    Again, so it's like every place ever. Or rather, workplaces with younger workers. I've gotten into plenty of arguments with workers there as with Walmart, and the average corner store, but it hardly makes a difference. At least with games, I know what's what and don't have to rely on the incompetence of the workers.

The fact that you're a PC gamer who doesn't shop online deeply confuses me.
    My only other options for used games are flea markets and pawn shops. I can certainly find some in better condition and at a cheaper price, but it's rare that it happens. I don't care too much about price as long as I can find the damn game I'm looking for. Don't shop online from a (more than usual)lack of trust. Only done that for very few items.

    In short, any good 3rd party game from the current console gen, and probably the last gen as well.




    To review: Your complaint is that Gamestop sells a lot of used games, that they have the same quality employee service found in most work environments, and that the used games aren't cheap enough for you.

    Why don't you have similar feelings in regards to DLC?

    Foolishness, Assasin. Foolishness.

    Used games can be found everywhere.

    Other non-Gamestop owned gaming retail stores however, cannot.

    Again, so it's like every place ever.

    'Cept even worse.

    Don't shop online from a (more than usual)lack of trust. Only done that for very few items.

    Buyin' anythin' online is perfectly legitimate 'n safe so long as you ain't buyin' from shady people on shady websites. If you were given 1 broken used game you couldn't return outta 5 you bought, you'd STILL be savin' money comparing to if you bought said used games at Gamestop. It's your money, but know that you're wastin' it without good reason (IMO; surely I'm not alone). Perhaps you've a paycheck that allows for a regular pyre of $20 bills, but I certainly don't.

    In short, any good 3rd party game from the current console gen, and probably the last gen as well.

    ... Which is t' say, anythin' that can be easily found online for cheaper.

    To review: Your complaint is that Gamestop sells a lot of used games, that they have the same quality employee service found in most work environments, and that the used games aren't cheap enough for you.

    My complaints lie in how they sell the used games, that their employees are somehow even lower quality than the norm, that they're a bunch'a con-artists who engage in deplorable business practices and the fact they're a damn blight on the gaming community both to the people who are take part of said community and even the gaming companies. My placing of Gamestop bein' worse than internet pirates was very literal. Gamestop is to gaming as everyone downloadin' music without payin' is to the music industry... though perhaps that example is just a tad extreme in terms of literal money lost.

    Lastly, indeed. Their used games ain't cheap enough; for anyone. It's a damn rip-off, whether someone can afford it or not. I certainly can, but I sure as shit won't just buy their games when I can find a copy in better condition for $15 less.


    Why don't you have similar feelings in regards to DLC?

    Explain.

    I haven't had any problems with Gamestop employees whatsoever. Which is apparently odd.

    Yeah, their used games are priced too high. I didn't really think about it that much though. There's a new game store that opened nearby called "Gameplay", I wonder if that's any good.
