As a gamer who owns multiple gaming systems there's always a game that's about to come out or has recently come out that I'm wanting to buy and until recently they were always my go-to source for games. I've attended several midnight openings where they've handed out t-shirts and posters for the game they're promoting but lately I've found myself turning to online sources for my games and staying away from Gamestop. It's not their prices or selection that are driving me away, but their insistence on upselling. The last time I visited Gamestop was to purchase a copy of Skyrim for my PS3. In the fifteen minutes I was in the store, I was asked to signup for their "Gamers Edge" card and was asked if I wanted to pre-order upcoming games three separate times. I understand that pre-orders are a large source of revenue for a store like Gamestop, but when I'm trading in several role-playing games in order to purchase a new role-playing game, why would you try to get me to preorder the upcoming release of Madden? I told them no the first time, told them no AGAIN when they tried to sweeten the deal by telling me about the pre-order bonuses, and had to tell them no a third time when they asked me to preorder Max Payne 3. I find this kind of sales technique to be very off-putting. When I go into a store like this I know what I want to buy and to have the clerk continually try to sell me something else irritates me. I find myself turning to Amazon for my console games and Steam for my PC games more and more, and tactics like what I've described here is one of the main reasons.

Gamestop is a great store for electronics gaming systems, games and etc. but only if you are a very patient person. I have been in Gamestop numerous times with family and friends and every single time I have been in one they have been a 3 ring circus. Not only are there customers running wild in there, but the employees always seem to be overwhelmed with what is going on. They do have wonderful prices, but surely it just is not worth the headache for me to go into these stores. The employees are typically college age boys who while nice enough just don't have all the knowledge of things outside the gaming world that they need to help those of us that don't know "game speak", nor do they seem able to do simple functions like cash registers, bagging up packages, and etc. More than once I have had to make sure everything we bought was put in the bag, or credit card was returned to us, and the list goes on. I highly recommend doing your shopping elsewhere for games, and systems; especially at the Holiday season where the stores are busier all the time.

Gamestop is by far the best place to get video games these days. I take my son and daughter here on a regular basis to trade in their old games for credit towards new ones. While its true that they give you pennies to the dollar back on some trades the pluses still outweigh the negatives. The staff there always seems to go above and beyond to actually help us find creative ways to get even bigger savings from promotions that they have. They always have a wealth of knowledge on the actual systems and games they sell unlike some of their competitors at big box stores. We always seem to walk out happy and with a couple used game deals of our own. As far as video game stores go it doesn't really get any better. Highly recommended!

Gamestop is a nice store in general but I would not suggest it for pre-ordering games. Although they sometimes have good pre-ordering deals there are sometimes better places to pre-order from. I like Amazon and the Microsoft Store for pre orders. For example, the last game I pre ordered from the Microsoft Store came with 1600 Microsoft points and a $10 coupon. In my opinion, Gamestop is best when you don’t know what you want and want to browse a selection. Their big wall of games will help you find a game that you’ll like and they have always had good staff who actually know about games whenever I’ve went as well.

I will admit, I was a bit skeptical when Gamestop took over my local EB Games. I don't like change. lol. I was nervous that they wouldn't have the same deals. But to my surprise, they are wonderful. They have a great used section that is a lot cheaper than new ones. They also offer a trade in option, sometimes they don't give you very much and I think that they are ripping you off, but most of the times it's a good deal. They offer a warranty on the used stuff also so you have a peace of mind when buying it. They have a pre-order option to make sure you get a newly released game the day it comes out... This is helpful when I have a 12 year old who has to have the newest games!

GameStop is a conflicting place for a life-long gamer. On the one hand, if you need something in a pinch it will often have more peripherals and niche games then Best Buy or Walmart. Conversely, the environment is appalling. There are loud advertisements for the next Call of Duty, uncaring employees, and I find the store's layout is often offensive. Gamespot stores are also quite expensive. It is 2012 and I paid 20 dollars for a Playstation 2 memory card there. That is outrageous! Better to have a GameStop in town for those gaming emergencies but not for everyday purposes.

I have moved a quite a bit in the past couple of years and no matter where I go GameStop employees have always been friendly and courteous as I walk through the door. I have made tons of purchases at GameStop throughout my life, and they are my go-to company for preorders. It’s great to be able to go at midnight to pick up my favorite releases. They have great prices and great promotions. They only problem I have with them is their trade-in program. The amount they give you various greatly and give you very little for what you actually paid for. The best thing to do it to wait for a promotion to increase the trade-in value but even then it’s low. I have enjoyed my experience with them, and I will continue to shop at GameStop in the future.

GameStop is the only place I go to buy video games. I love the fact that have used games which are cheaper than the new. You can trade in your old games as well, but do not expect to get what you paid for them, remember you did get enjoyment out of them. If you are tired with a game or beat it already, it can be traded in towards the purchase of a new or used game. They also have very knowledgeable employees that can tell you about the game before you buy it. GameStop is the place to go to get your games as well you can put a deposit on the new games that are coming out to guarantee that you will get it when it is released.

I just absolutely love GameStop. The GameStop staff is very helpful and they seem to be in any of the stores you walk into. Sometimes you will need to have patience because their staff is limited which can lead to a little bit of a wait if, they are busy. The staff has always been great to inform me of new games that I can reserve ahead of time and even refer games that my husband or daughter may like. This makes it so easy for me because I don't have a clue of what type of games to buy. I just tell them their interest and the games the do seem to like and they always lead me in the right direction. Their store has a great return policy for their new and used games and I am always happy with the selection they carry. They even offer a member service that allows you to get an even better discount on all of the games and systems they provide and should you be a big time gamer you can even turn in your used games for store credit towards a new game of your choice. I would recommend them to anyone.

Gamestop is a store that makes me uncomfortable due to their aggressive pressure tendencies. A few years back I went in to exchange a couple of games and put a pre-payment down on an upcoming game (Red Dead Redemption). During this time I was swarmed by the people working that day who did everything in their power to convince me to buy other products: used games, pre-payment for new games and magazine subscriptions. I am an introvert so I find that kind of behavior uncomfortable in the first place, but I felt like this would be over the top for anybody. I haven't set foot in a Gamestop since, even sending my cousin to pick up the game for me so I wouldn't have to go.

Most recently I was in a local GameStop to place my preorder for the upcoming Wii U console. First off props to GameStop for having what seems to be a reliable preorder system in place (looking at you, Target, Wal-Mart, Amazon), but dang when a guy is on a mission to get something done they sure like to put up some road blocks. Yes, I’d like to preorder a Wii U please. OK, can I see your power play card? Well no because I don’t have one. Ok then, here’s three minutes of why it would be great for you to get the card and how much money it would save! Pass, thanks. Would you like to preorder any games that launch with the Wii U? Games can be scarce and we don’t know how many we’ll get around that time. GameStop, you’re killing me here. Can I just pay my fifty bucks and be on my way? They’ve got the game store market cornered and there aren’t many options these days so we’re stuck with them, but I know they can make changes so the shopping experience can be better in the future.

My children got me turned on to GameStop, and have to say that it is now the first store I stop at when starting my Christmas shopping, or for birthdays. I wasn't sure what kind of game system to buy for our family (although my kids offered their own suggestions!) so we could all enjoy it. I had heard of GameStop but had never been into one. I stopped at one in the mall, and the clerk spent a great deal of time with me, going over the advantages and disadvantages of each of the "big 3" systems. I'm sure he does this 100 times a day, but he made me feel like it was the first time he explained it, and answered all of my (probably) very dumb questions. He was also great in located a used system for us, which saved us a BUNDLE of money. It was actually his recommendation that we buy a used system, and save the extra money for any upgrades we wanted to enjoy some of the "band" type of games that our kids wanted. The trade-in policy is great, and my kids have already used that several times with games they no longer want or ones they did not like too much.

GameStop is my go-to place for all of my gaming needs. Anytime I walk into my local store, they always are helpful and very knowledgeable. I feel very comfortable and never feel like they are pushing me to make a sale. I've gone to my GameStop so many times that I've formed a friendship with a few of the employees there. This is the kind of customer service that more companies need. Anytime I had a question about a particular game, they had the answers. If I walked in and was looking for a certain genre of game to play (action, FPS, puzzle) but didn't know what I wanted, they always had a recommendation for me. Oh and their pre-order policy? Absolute the best. I love being able to put money down, even if it's just a few bucks. I recently pre-ordered Borderlands 2 and the process was easy and painless. Even with used games, I always seem to catch a great deal. Tired of playing a game you own? GameStop also allows you to take your games and trade them in for cash or store credit, which I find very useful. I can honestly say I've never traded in for cash, as I'm a pretty heavy gamer, and I'm always looking for something new to play. Overall, GameStop is my kind of store and I love whenever I get gift cards to shop there.

Okay, I admit it, I'm a gamer! And as a gamer I obviously love Gamestop. Not just because it happens to be a store that sells video games though. There are any number of those around. Gamestop is different because of the amazing knowledge of the staff and the passion that they share for video games. The midnight release parties are off the chart awesome. I'm always super excited when another one comes around. They always have amazing prices too! Friendly and knowledgeable staff who love gaming as much as I do, great pricing, and midnight releases? This is so the store of my dreams!

I know quite a few people dislike GameStop as a corporate entity. Problems range from their less than stellar buy back policy to uneducated employees. That said, I’ve never had anything but excellent service from the folks that work at the location I frequent. I’ve never been afraid to ask for game opinions, as the staff doesn’t just push whatever is hot at the moment, but always ask about the types of games I already enjoy playing. They then base their feedback on that, and I have yet to be led astray. As for the buy backs, I almost always wait for the specials like “trade in 3 games and get an extra 30%” type deals. I couple that with being a member that gets me an extra 10% on trades, and I’m usually happy.

I was shopping at Gamestop about a month ago. I don’t usually shop at Gamestop because I mostly play PC games and Gamestop no longer caters to PC gaming. My sister owns an Xbox 360 and I was thinking of playing the new Madden NFL game which I haven’t played in years. I went to the local store to purchase a new copy. The cashier said that a used copy is 12 dollars less so I bought the used copy. That night, I pop the game in and the game doesn't start. I take the game out of the console and it’s scratched pretty badly. Gamestop has a reputation of buying used games and not testing them out and allowing the customer to test them out. I’m pissed that I have to go back to the store to get another used copy and waste gas. Luckily, the clerk didn't give me a hard time about giving me another used copy. This time, the game worked. Gamestop should get their clerks to test these used games out on their downtime at work. Must be a mind numbing job but any store that wants any respect cannot sell used products without testing them out first. Buy used games at Gamestop at your own risk and don’t lose the receipt.

Both my husband and I are gammers. As such we spend lots of our time researching new games and the best places to buy them for the best prices. For that, we love to go to game stop. There is one in our local mall and we always end up with excellent service when we go there. They recognize my husband and I as soon as we come in and it's always a pleasure to stop in, even if it's just to browse or to find out what exciting new games will be coming out soon. We have never had a problem with any of the Gamestops we've been to, both in our town or in others we visited previously. Game Stop is THE place to go for new game info and the best pricing!

I'm a diehard fan of video games, both old and new and, so far, GameStop proved to be my best option of buying games. Compared to the market, they generally offer the best prices - trust me, I did some research. I buy games worth about $200 per month and GameStop is my main "source". What is more, they offer a wide variety of games for every gaming platform: PC, PlayStation, XBox. Beside this, they have many miscellaneous items for a gamer, including great bundles. Also, if you like to play mostly oldies, this is a great place to buy your games from, their offer including classics like Planescape: Torment, Baldur's Gate and many more. If you're lucky, you may even find huge, one-time discounts.

GameStop is a fantastic game store and I truly enjoy shopping there and enabling my family to do so as well. It is a one-stop shop for all of one’s gaming needs, accessories, and other video game related information. The customer service in GameStop is always great, and I enjoy talking to the representatives. I do not know as much about gaming myself, but the customer service representatives really offer valuable, up-to-date information and advice on what to buy for a family of gamers. I have a large family that really enjoys playing all types of video games, so GameStop is a frequent shopping destination for us. During the season, it is always easy to shop for them by purchasing multiple gift cards. I really do like GameStop, and I hope they continue to offer excellent service and those smashing sales each season!

In all honesty, I've had some uncomfortable experiences inside Gamestop. While you'll end up with what you wanted, you always feel like you're being judged for the purchase you're making, or having the gall to not tack on a reservation of something else they want you to walk out with. I think the rudeness a lot of people associate with them is overstated as they are not outright disrespectful to customers, but I think their dedication and interest to the products they are selling gets in the way sometimes. They'll help you find whatever you want and they likely have it in stock, just be prepared to say "no" a few times while you're checking out because they'll try to sell you everything in the store you aren't voluntarily purchasing.

I'm very much into playing video games and always love getting the latest and greatest games that come out. Gamestop has always been a cool place to go and get these items. Its a small store so the customer service can be so so sometimes because it gets so busy and there are usually only 2-3 people working but they are always helpful and can find what you are looking for. They are also really into video games too so a conversation is always there if I want to chat up a video game or 2. I know that they will most likely have the newest games in stock and if I am worried, I can always preorder a game for $5 which is super nice. They also allow you to trade in games and old video game systems so you can get store credit. This is a nice feature although they really can low ball you on the price of trade ins. The best thing about gamestop though is that they sell games and I can get the game I want and get out without having to deal with the huge department stores. I would highly recommend checking out gamestop if you haven't and there is bound to be one near by you because they build them everywhere!

Gamestop is one of my all time favorite stores to go to. It is really one of the only stores dedicated to video games and nothing else. While you could buy your games from Wal-Mart or Best Buy, the employees at Gamestop really know what they are talking about. They are eager to engage in friendly discussion with you about games. Last time I went in, both employees were very friendly and promptly found the exact game I was looking for. Based on my purchase they showed me a list of up and coming games that they thought I would like and showed me how I could pre order them. I was very satisfied with my experience. Plus they have a customer rewards card and deals if you trade in old games or systems. I think this is a great store and I go back all the time!

First thing to note, I shop at GameStop alot and make sure to always keep my receipts in a box. I went to GameStop recently to pick up several items (1 Gift Card, 2 computer games and a game book). As usual the service was fast and friendly that day so I wasn't there long. As soon as I got home the bag went into a closet. It wasn't until 2 weeks later that I finally opened the bag with everything in it and happened to notice one of the computer game boxes felt a little too light. I checked inside the case and sure enough there was no disc inside. I immediately started looking for the receipt but it was nowhere to be found, not even in my receipt box. Regretfully, I knew I'd need to re-buy the computer game (since it had been 2 weeks since the purchase and I had no receipt). So I headed to the store again to pick up the game. I went to the cashier, handed them the empty box and explained why I was re-buying it. The clerk asked if I have a GameStop Card. I do (thankfully) so I gave it to him and within seconds he was able to confirm my recent purchases. After waiting a quick minute while he checked with the manager on duty, he told me “Well, there is no sense in you re-buying the game if we forgot to put the disc inside. Our mistake.” He then gives me the new computer game and says, “Here you go! Have a nice day." I was extremely happy. It's good to see real customer service, the way it should be! Kudos to GameStop. Now more than ever, this is the only place I go to buy my games and gaming accessories.

GameStop is the place I go to buy games. I would never buy games from anywhere else because everywhere else overcharges. GameStop also has amazing deals on used consoles. I bought the new xbox 360(the slim one) from them last year for very cheap. I spent the same amount I would on a new one somewhere else that day but by buying used I had the extra cash to buy lots of used games with it, too. I still use that xbox to this day, so quality is assured. The games all worked perfectly from beginning to end and the employees were very helpful to me. I recommend GameStop to anyone who wants to buy games and save some money at the same time.

Gamestop is an alright place, but I've had problems with with them before. The problem usually comes down to either the employees not knowing what item/game I'm talking about or them pressuring me to join the gamestop power club program. I understand that the employees need to push that thing as part of working there, but sometimes it's a bit too pushy and invasive. However, forgetting that, Gamestop does feature some good deals, sometimes online or in-store, for used, new or trading in games/systems. I usually go to gamestop if they have a good pre-order bonus or if I don't feel like waiting for a particular game to arrive to my door step. It's convenient that there are 2 GameStops near my place that I can ride to and ask questions/compare prices with. Overall, it's a good place if you need to pick up a quick console game and the workers are generally cool easy going people.

GameStop is a bit of a mixed bag, in my opinion. As a customer looking to purchase games, you have many options available – especially in regards to used game purchases. If you want to try to sell games to them, though, you are often given 30% of the MSRP or less, with a few series (i.e. Call of Duty) retaining more of their value over time. The customer service I’ve received from the few I’ve been to has been good, with the employees not trying to push too many pre-orders or incentives onto you, and they are generally knowledgeable about what is being sold. The biggest issue I have with the store is their effect on the industry, specifically how they profit on used game sales (with none of the price going to the developer/publisher).

I have made countless purchases at Gamestop throughout my life. Their preordering program is very helpful and efficient. I have preordered a few games from them and got them when promised. I even got an email alert telling me that I could pick it up which is a nice extra feature. Their prices for new games are no higher than anywhere else. Sometimes their used games are way over priced for the game and it's condition, but sometimes they seem like a steal. Same goes for used systems. They also have had some decent sales in the past. Though they have a good return policy if your used game won't play, I've bought more than a couple of used games there that haven't worked. Even if they take them back it's annoying to have to make the extra trip when they should have tested the games in the first place. Some of their employees are better than others but I've never had anyone be out and out rude to me which I appreciate. If you're looking to sell your used stuff there, I would look elsewhere or sell it yourself. Though I suppose I can't blame them, they're definitely the types to buy low and resell high.

GameStop is my favorite place to buy video games, both new and used. I don't play many games myself - I'm mostly shopping for my son when I go to the store. I love that I have someplace like GameStop close by so I can get gently used games for great prices. New games are so expensive and it's frustrating to have to spend so much for a new game. I do occasionally buy games new if there is something especially exciting coming out that my son has been looking forward to. I wish that I could get more money back when trading my used games in though. I don't trade in many games because after spending so much on a game, getting a few dollars back seems like kind of an insult. That's really the only thing I would change about GameStop if I could. For me, the best part of getting my games there though is how helpful and knowledgeable the employees are. I don't know much about the fighting and war games, which my son loves. Even though the games have ratings, we've seen a variety of content come from the same rating. If there is a game my son is requesting that I don't know much about, I can stop by GameStop and discuss the game with an employee. They have always been able to answer my questions and give me good advice about whether a certain game might be appropriate or not, and if not, they've been able to offer me good alternatives. GameStop has become my son's favorite place to get video games too because he knows he can get more for his money if he buys used games. I'm so happy that there's a GameStop close to us and I'd definitely recommend it to others looking to save some money and get good advice about games!

GameStop is the store that I go to when I need (ok, want) the game right then with no wait. If I can wait for a few days, I will always go online instead. GameStop tries to act like a store that knows all about games, but in truth, the employees are probably at most casual gamers. Many times I’ve felt like they wanted me to think they were in on this cool “gaming club” when all I wanted was to buy a game with zero personal interaction. I think they need to not try so hard, unless of course someone is needing that guidance. I will continue to go there on the random occasion that I have no willpower to wait for a game.

Gamestop is a good company overall. Sure they try to upsell you some, but what company doesn't do that? I went in there recently with twenty bucks and asked one of the employees for good games on the psp. He suggested some good cheap used games and I walked out with some awesome games and change back from purchase. I've returned back to that store because of the good customer service I've received. It's a great place to shop especially if you're looking for older games on older consoles. Along with the steady sales on new games, it makes it cheap and affordable. The employees are all knowledgeable and helpful. To top it off they have the best selection of games that are both new and used that you can find. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.

I have been a customer of various GameStops for many years now. My favorite part about the stores is their preorder policy, where I can put as little as $5 down on a new game and continue to pay on it little by little until it is paid off or until the game's release date. I do this with most of the games I purchase so it's not as big a 'blow' to my wallet as it would be. I've been very lucky with my GameStop employees, in that they have all been very helpful and considerate. A few of them I got to know fairly well because I was a regular at their store, and they would point me in the direction of the best deals as well as games they knew matched my likes and dislikes. I've never found any employees, at my regular store of not, to be pushy or felt like they were 'just trying to make a sale'. The only issue I have with GameStop is their trade in policy, which will give you, basically, pennies on the dollar for your slightly used games.

The Gamestop used to be an Electronics Boutique, or EB Games. So the branding and employees were different. The major thing I do not like about buying games now is the very unforgiving return policy. They figure you are going to burn a copy of the game or something and return it, so they do not want to give returns for any reasons at all. Aside from that they are the place I go to for pre-orders of special editions and collector's editions of games that I want. Every transaction has been smooth and I've received my game in a timely fashion. My most recent purchase was, I believe, The Witcher 2. I got it with no hassle and was able to immediately just go home and download the extra content and play the game. I save my rewards points for the bigger things, but the credit structure is sort of weird and some things aren't worth it. Personally I just save them for more games.

My husband loves playing video games in his downtime to unwind from work. While I know he loves sports games like Madden NFL and NCAA Football I always seem to have difficulty picking out games he likes. My solution is to get him a gift card to GameStop for his birthday every year. He loves GameStop because they have a great mix of new releases and old games. He also loves the fact that he can trade in older games and use them as a credit towards newer versions or different games altogether. He has a lot of experience shopping around for games and thinks that the prices at GameStop are very reasonable. I’ve had great experiences in GameStop as well. When our Xbox was damaged in a move and needed to be replaced I went to GameStop to ask for advice. The sales associate that helped me was very knowledgeable and professional. He spent almost 45 minutes helping me pick out the right system and accessories. I would definitely recommend shopping at GameStop for all your gaming needs!

Gamestop is where I get all my games. from new releases to old ones that you've never heard of or had forgotten about. You can take in your old games that you don't play anymore and trade them for store credit or cash. They also have a rewards program that gives you discounts and you receive a magazine each month with the new releases and game reviews. They have those random hard to find accesories for any system and all the up to date ones too. You can preorder games and pick them up at 12:01 a.m. on the release date. They are always friendly and super helpful. If they don't have it they will see about getting for you or see if another store carries it. Alot of times they have working systems set up that you can try out new games.

GameStop is a store I have been going to for the past ten years. It is the only place that I have ever been to that I have been able to have a conversation with the employees for more than 30 minutes and not feel like they are trying to sell me something. One time, I went in not knowing what I really wanted. I asked the employees who were there if they had any recommendations. They then proceeded to pull out a stack of games and let me play through each one on one of their kiosks. I have never had such a wonderful experience before. If you love games, this is where you need to be going.

Gamestop is probably the best place for gamers to buy video games. They sell new and old consoles, as well as computer games. It is the best place to buy anything used as well, and the prices there will probably be no different from that of buying something off of ebay. I would not recommend selling your used video games however. I think you can get a better bargain then just selling for store credit, which isn't very much to begin with. The staff is pretty friendly too, and they always seem willing to help and know what you need or how to answer your questions.

My experience with Gamestop has been mostly positive, except for a few instances in the past. It usually had to do with whenever I had to talk to one of the sales reps in the store. They were usually clueless. I remember once I went in looking to buy a simple normal HDMI cable. They insisted I buy one of their "premium cables". I asked how much it would be, and he replied $64.00. I laughed. He began to insist that I would not find one cheaper anywhere else, and that these cables usually cost upwards of $100.00. Needless to say I did not purchase it. Found one online for $2.00. If you can go in, buy exactly what you want and leave the experience probably won't be to bad, but if you need help with anything chances are the reps in the store will lead you down the wrong path. At least that's how it is in my local gamestop. Your mileage may very.

I preordered Tales of Graces F for the Playstation 3 at Gamestop earlier in the year. I did it online, and it was my first time doing it, so I was a little apprehensive that it might not go smoothly. I chose to do a local store pick-up, and they notified me the day it was available (which was the right day, it wasn't delayed or anything) so I could come and pick it up. They had it ready and waiting for me, and the price was the same as it was on the website. I was very pleased that the whole process was so streamlined and easy, and I didn't have to wait for my game to shipped out or anything, and more importantly, I was guaranteed a copy. I'll definitely do the online preorder thing again - it was just too easy!

I went to GameStop on August 19th to pick up a preordered copy of New Super Mario Bros. 2 on the day that it was released. I had never been there before, since I usually buy all of my games through sites like Amazon or eBay, but I wanted this one on the release date and was actually pretty surprised at the service. The attendant took my phone number, found the preorder, and already a had a stack of the game behind her so she could do the job quickly. She gave me the game and I was on my way! While there, I noticed that the games were actually fairly priced, similar to online prices. I will probably go back whenever I want a new console game so that I don't have to wait for shipping.

Oh, GameStop, how you vex me. Let me start out by saying that I am an avid gamer, and have been my entire life. I love browsing titles, and talking to people about new and upcoming games. That being said, I have never really been a big fan of GameStop. Frankly, I don’t even go there anymore. I have two big gripes that I have experienced at numerous stores. First, the staff. It seems that 90% of the time I get stuck dealing with condescending teenagers who think they know more than me, and don’t care about anything other than trying to up-sell me something. Kid, I was playing games before you were even born, do not talk to me like I’m an idiot. Secondly, their used game profit margin is absolutely absurd. Usually, for the newer games, they’re about $1.00 less than if you bought it brand new. That’s so ridiculous, especially considering the fact that they’re probably making about 80% profit per game, and the studio that made it sees none of that markup. Long story short, the only reason I would ever go to GameStop would be to buy a brand new game and get out as quickly as I can. If that’s the case, why not just go to Wal-Mart or Best Buy? GameStop is everything that a video game store should not be.
