    Yeah, it's retarded. You should never sell your games/systems at the big-name game stores like Gamestop and stuff, they rip you off like crazy. It's how they make their money, though. I did it with my old PS2 games that I don't play anymore, only because I didn't feel like eBaying them. Just eBay your Zelda, not only will you get more but you'll make some kid happy. >_>

    You could try pawn shops, but they rip you off too.

    Yeah, I agree with Bryan_, those big name stores cost rip you off, and cost an arm and a leg for a used game. Just recenly I bought SSBM, and they charged me 28 bucks for it!!

    I sell mine to GameCrazy and they arn't too bad. I have a VIP card though so I get more money for my trade ins and can buy used games for cheaper.

    It's annoying but thats how they make money.I did a little math and ofund that they make around 70-75% profit of what you sell.

    You don't even have to do the math, how else would they make money off of used games?

    yeah, my friend told me he went and traded in call of duty 3, elebits, and dragon ball z tenkaichi 2 and only made $57 for $150 worth of trade in, i went ahead and smacked him upside the head for that, cause he bought a damn pizza and a cd afterwards. I would've bought it off of him for $75 or $80, that pissed me off cause it wouldve been a sweet deal, so I went ahead and smacked him upside the head again after that..................at least he'll know that i'll buy the game off him for a better price and i wont have to pay as much for a used game, used games for the wii is only $5 to $10 off at EB Games and GameStop (talk about bull-****). Business is business i guess.

    Wait until Summer they have some good deals sometimes like trade in 5 old games and get 10 extra bucks (good for old crappy games you dont want any more)
