    I don't routinely hit the big chain places. I perfer the smaller locally-owned places to buy, but their trade in values are usually awful(seriously, one place gives $4 for a Dreamcatst system then tags them at $80) .

    The local Movie Gallery has started dealing in new and used with trades though. Saw RE3 for GC for $13 the other day... GS GIVES $14 for that game and sells for $30-$40.

    BTW, Game Crazy is selling the GC OOT bonus disc for only $25. Most places want double that. Pity I hated how the game played on a GC controller or I'd have jumped on it.

    The guys at my gamestop are really nice. Other gamestops i've been to, the workers were clueless. I say my favorite gamestop is the one close by to me.

    a game store pissed me off pretty bad to.
    i went to the store to buy super smash melee, and i had a classic controller.
    one of the dudes told me, "Yeah man you can use the classic controller with gc games..brah" then i said OTAY and went home and got pissed. i went back and bought a game cube controller, and the dude told me he diddent ever say anything like that. i also had to buy a dang gc mem card just so i could play.
    but useally i like gamestop

    I got hit on at a gamestop by one of the employees one time. It was pretty creepy considering that the majority of the gamestop employees i've ever met look like they haven't left their mom's basement in like 10 years.

    Also, whenever i hear someone at Best Buy or gamestop trying to sell a game they obviously don't know ANYTHING about, i usually set them straight and explain everything to the customer way better than the sales person ever possibly could. I usually do a great deal of research before i buy a game, and other games that intrest me

    I disagree. My local gamestop I really like the guys that work there. One employee even HANDED ME a copy of Metroid Prime 3 when I had pre-ordered it, but no receipt and no ID. He did it when his manager was right there next to him and he could've been fired for it. He said "This game is so awesome, I just want EVERYONE to experience it." Gamestop is awesome. Its where I first played Guitar Hero.

    The other day, when I went to go get Guitar Hero, I decided to pay off Battalion Wars II. I gave him 5 $10s, and he said I should put $45 down on BWii and $5 on Brawl. I told him I wouldn't have enough, and I'd come back next paycheck. So he ran my phone number, and it turns out I pre ordered phantom hourglass a while ago and allowed me to transfer the $5 onto brawl!!!

    I think I plan on getting a job at Gamestop over the summer. I figure it shouldn't be too hard to get the job because I atleast know what I'm usually talking about. And after reading some of your guys's reviews of employees they seem very misinformed.


    Thanks Star Striker for the sig.

    ive had bad experiences with game stores for some reason they target mothers desperately trying to find there child there favourite game (sometimes cant remember the name) and they test them. once i went to EB games and guess what? a clueless employee trying to get an extra $20

    mother: how does this wii game work?(WII SPORTS)
    employee: its a 5-in-1 sports game)
    mother: so this comes with the wii?
    employee: if you pay an extra $20 it comes with the console
    mother: oh ok...no thanks
    employee: b-but where having a sale so you can have it for free
    mother:oh ok, thank you

    i was just looking at some games while listening to the conversation

    iv had a few bad experiances with Game station in my local town, They know loads about gaming and consoles and everything else but there so bloody ignorant when it comes to answering ur questions. About 6 weeks ago i walked into the shop and said to a member of staff "can u help me i need some advice about getting my wii connected online" to which he replied in a sarcastic voice "yer get a router and plug it in and there u go" "NEXT PLEASE"

    now thats annoying

    My hometown is Hartlepool (England) and at the moment I live in Hull (Still England) and the GAME back home is really well run, the employees are knowledgeable and friendly, always willing to help as well, same here in Hull where there are like 3 GAMES in the city centre, never had a bad experience. Nice friendly banter, always willing to help, guess it's just like real life, a few idiots spoil it for the whole.
