    What I noticed, even though he's pissed off at Gamestop, he still did business with them, and still pre-ordered 2 new games!

    You are like my favorite Youtuber now. And truth about Gamestop too. Sadly I allowed myself to get ripped off a few times by trading in some games I didn't play so I could get some extra dough to last me for the week until payday.

    Your video really makes me not want to trade in anything to Gamestop right now, even if I get broke. :lmao

    Better trade in values and easy mailing service.

    Yeah, People bitch about the Gamestop trade policy alot. :lmao Its business, and how much do you get at amazon? Remember, there an online site and more flexible, while Gamestop pretty much makes its money off used games. Now you make amazon into a strictly game site, and see how much you get then :maybe Gamestop does the best it can (though it can do better) for everything. and he must be trying to get cash because well, Why would gamestop give you full store credit for cash? (though it would be nice) they loose money in that sense. If you don't like it then don't shop there. as long as you know the business aspect you'll be fine :lmao

    I'm sorry but what's the point in pre-ordering a game that will obviously be in stock on release day with no issues? It's not like they will run out on the first week for a game like L.A. Noire.

    paying less money for it is a plus for me. for example, i like paying $30 a month before then paying the rest at release.

    i'm a cheap bastard

    Also remember, and this is important folks!

    PICK YOUR GAMESTOPS WITH CARE There are the good ones, and the bad ones. The good ones are the ones that don't pester you or keep nagging you about so much shit, and get the job done and have fun. (Like my gamestop, we usually have the manager who keeps making jokes on the sly our our keyholder who knows just about everything) and does the gamestop you go to tell you if a game is gonna suck or be good truthfully? Thats a key factor. Choose your gamestops with care! :cry

    I work at gamestop so I would know, especially since we usually have customers either laughing there asses off by our antics or leaving them with a good impression.

    The one around here is okay.

    There used to be this really cute clerk there and then she disappeared. I wanted to bang her so bad. I would go in there just to talk to her (which, for me, means looking at her nervously never actually managing to talk to her at all).

    But Gamestop in general is evil.

    Even if gamestop sucks, it's better than nothing.

    Before the one around here opened up, buying a game meant driving all the way out to the Sam Goody at the mall, where it was a Russian roulette situation whether or not they would even have the game, and then spending a bunch of extra money because they were the devil. Selling a game meant one of three things: 1) You keep it forever because no one will buy it from you; 2) You pawn it off on a stupid friend; 3) Goodwill fodder.

    Although now I buy most of my games online through Amazon. It's easier that way and I can feel like I have some kind of consumer control (i.e., the ability to click through a sea of links and choose the one with the marginally cheapest pricetag).

    This is why I go to a small business store that has an arcade, I get more trade in there.

    Of course, Gamestop was the only place to get Sonic Battle, even though I had to ask and show them that they had it because "they can't sell GBA games anymore."

    I could relate to him perfectly when trying to get old fighting games at Gamestop. A few years ago I used to have to search the lands for hard copies of CVS2.

    Next time you look for emerging at Gamestop tell them to search the system for the closest GS that may have it. Whichever has it (no matter where) tell them to ship it. If they don't know how to do that process give them the troll treatment and report the store. :maybe you can have gamestops ship games as long as a store has it to your local store, free of charge. Just gotta pay for it when it gets there

    It's amazing how many people get upset at Gamestop.

    Try not being stupid.

    They don't lie to you--they tell you the prices. They don't tell you can make more money if you sell them online; they don't tell you they will take your game trade and slap a 300% price jump on it from what you were paid; they don't try to sell you the cheapest and most inexpensive piece of merchandise in the store. It's a business; that's what they do.

    Wait...what?

    This is a first I've ever heard. So my Gamestop, if I ask them, they can ship a game I wanted from that location to mines? I really want Metroid Prime 3 new but its not at my local GS (although its at a GS like three miles away from me).

    Holy shit...you rock mayn.

    Yeah. I work at Gamestop, and I do it frequently. We always have things shipped to us. Just gotta pick it up from the store and pay for it, then there's GS online.

    When people bitch to me about the amount "I" am giving them, I say "Come back when we have a trade sale, or take it elsewhere." Not exactly a rip off when you willingly accept what you are given. And the only pro to preordering shit is if they decide to maybe give you some bonus content. Although there have been a few rare occasions where we did genuinely run out of big titles within the first 2 days.

    Working there isn't so bad, granted you abuse your position. I accidentally kicked my 360 and put a circle scratch in my brother's NHL 11. I just returned it at work and replaced that shit.


    The majority of my customers are cheap idiots, and don't have enough common sense to even grasp the basics of business. It humors me to see people of such low class.

    ^ Exactly. Though for pre-ordering, the other bonus is that if your the type where you don't know if you'll have that money when it comes out, you put most if not all down when you have it so you don't need to worry about it. Thats how I look at it, plus all the trade bonuses we tend to give out.

    On wednesday some dude traded in a decent amount of games, his wife left him and took the PS3 or something. He actually got like $285, because of the trade sales, and power up card. Even I was a bit surprised, he just had good stuff. He was able to buy every WoW thing we had, and still had $80 left.

    So he happily walk out of our store and head towards the downward spiral of Forever Alone :lmao

    I understand why a lot of people hate the company though. Despite the fact it is a business, I don't like how they make us act to people. I get that we need to let people know what's going on, and offer help, but I refuse to be up anyone's ass. I never push too hard, even if it means going against what the company says, and because of it I always get back high customer service scores (From the 2 out of every 10,000 customers who take the survey) I think it's because of this that my manager keeps me as his #1 GA, and never gives me shit. Lately the company seems to be taking a "get good feedback scores!" approach.

    Only do it if the other keyholders aren't lazy fucks. or you will find yourself flooded with toh's, rsb's, etc etc. It's a big reason why I haven't taken the promotion. I worked there from 06-07, and became assistant manager. I went back this past summer as just a GA, and my manager never does his work :lmao

    I was considering applying to my local Gamestop. Is it an ok place to work and do you get steady schedules? My job I'm working currently has me working whenever. I literally don't know what to expect with my schedule at work. One minute I work nights, next minute I work mornings....sigh...

    Gamestop is actually really flexible, just let them know what the deal is. your boss shouldn't have a problem working with you.
