    Hey I was wondering if anyone has had any bad experiences with game shop staff.

    This got me so mad I had to post it. I was in a game shop in today where a youngish staff member was talking to a middle aged women at the wii section. The woman was interested in getting a wii. This is how the convesation went (from the time I heard it)

    Staff (with Big Brain Academy): If you get this you will need two remotes to play it.
    Customer (pointing to image of Wii sports as part of a Sports pack with raquet golf peripherals and Wii conole): What about this Sports game.
    Staff: I think you can play that with one remote
    Customer : They are expensive arent they?
    Staff: Yeah they are. But if you get that you get these golf and tennis raquet things with it.
    Customer: But you can play it without them
    Staff: Em .. I dont know about that.(Giggles)

    Then I left the store annoyed

    tip for a healthy gamer:

    Gamestop employees should be shot on sight.

    All of the employees at my local Gamestop are really nice. They know tons about games and I've always had positive comments about them.

    I want this game.

    Staff: If you buy three more games i'll give you an XBOX headset. And if you pay an extra 5 bucks you can bring it back in 7 days!
    Me: No.
    Staff: If you buy another game i'll give you this happy feet game for free.
    Me: No. I want this game.
    Staff: You can get 2 wii remotes for 60 dollars if you buy the ant bully game.
    Me: I'm going to best buy.

    They're already making a good 70 bucks on you and they want more.
    Pain in the arse.

    to americans, it is game, its uk based game store.

    its my faveourite shop for games, and i was in 1 today and the guy was really nice, but this depends on who you talk to and what there interests are. fanboy game staff, are usually the most biased, and least educated, where as general gamers are really nice.

    p.s there is link to the game website down right hand side of page, in pink writing

    ohh they pissed me off royally, when i got my wii i got one of those wii points, i asked the dude could you play regular nes game with the wii mote or do you have to buy the classic controller
    "you have to have the classic controller to play any of the vc games"
    good thing i didnt have the money for it because when i went home and found out i could use my wii mote for the nes and the gamecube controller for basicaly every thing else i was pissed.

    Note: this is just one account those stupid idiots didn't know what they were talking about.
    Oh that reminds me about the psp headset
    i go in to get a headset the day it was released gamestop guy says that doesn't exist, im like ok what ever. go to another gamestop he says the same thing, go around the corner to Ebgames and he says here you go would you like any thing else with that. How do they get jobs at game stores and not know any thing about what they are selling? Especially when they freakin own EBgames

    i got an awesome deal at Toys 'R' Us the day after the DS came put since i can't skip school for a Games Console. I got a DS (MPH Demo...), Project Rub and Spiderman and saved £45.

    I visit Gamestop/EB games often because they usually have the widest selection of games...however...their employees they seem to hire know little about games. I did run into a great salesmen though...he had this one kid eating out of his hand when he was talking about the new GTA IV pack with the dufflebag and briefcase or something like that.

    I forgot the exact cost of the stupid GTA package but i knew it was ridiculous. He had this kid thinking it was the sweetest thing in the world since sliced bread. That kid is totally going to buy a useless piece of game memorabilia like that halo legendary pack. Gamestop sells so much crap to stupid people.

    Well he wasnt fully wrong there. You can't play all VC games with just the wii remote and gamecube controller.. need the classic controller too. Maybe he was clueless but his intentions were good at least.

    edit: 6:44 PM here atm david and yeah the ebgames employees were I live are hardcore gamers and really nice >_>. Everytime i go there there either talking about how they pwned some noobs on Halo 3 or how they can't wait for this game etc.

    the guy's at my gamestop are really awesome, i usually don't have to ask questions since i look up games online before i go to the store and i might have a question or 2 and they give me good awnsers and they don't get me to try extras, they just ask me if i would like to hear the deals they have and i say no and thats it.
