    Gamestop Rant

    This video contains swearing, mature imaging, and a one sided view of Gamestop. Enjoy
    This is an animation (i dont own anything) and i just thought it would be a great way to start a rant on Gamestop.

    You can post anything you like or dislike about gamestop (or what ever the name of the store is where your from)

    Let me start
    • I visit this chain of stores alot. I find it nice to have people to ask questions
    • their prices are reguarded as the average price for any certain title, i find some nice cheap games.
    • They pretty much have the variety
    • THey have that computer that tells you where a certain title is in stock at
    Thats it for the good stuff.

    Bad:
    • Their prices are horrible. I guess they set the bar though, as their prices are taken for the average price for a game. I only buy when its 2 get 1 free. I go to craigslist for better prices
    • You can redeem games in for credit. Thing is i know my games are worth more than a dollar.
    • The sales people arnt very knowledgeable. They either dont know, or try to BS it.
    • Their emails are not helpful, with little to no discount on stuff i am even remotely interested in.
    • They dont have titles i am looking for!
    Thats to name most of what i dont like.

    Sounds a bit like Blockbuster in the UK.

    The vid pretty much hit the nail on the head. Gamestop is ok, but never ever sell them your games. You are way better off just saving them.

    LOL yea i totally agree with this animated vid. For me its difficult since i am a hoarder. Even if they did give good credit in exchange, i wouldnt be willing to part with the games i own, no matter how bad the game is.

    Game crazy was what the store was called before it became gamestop? Or is game crazy a group that makes youtube videos?

    At Kahala mall, there used to be two different stores. One called game stop, the other called software etc. They merged, and after a few store movements (about 3 different spaces in the same mall) they are now rooted near the movie theater.

    Iirc, Game Crazy was a branch of Hollywood Video. It was a game store that started inside the movie stores, then branched out to stand alone stores.

    I'm kinda divided on gamestop to be quite honest. Sometimes I like their sales, other times I prefer purchasing straight off Amazon or some other place... and I've traded in games before... pretty much always feel ripped when it comes to them giving "credit" or money back. I haven't sold them a game back in a long while, probably won't. But who knows...

    I guess I'm lucky because my local GameStop has some real gamers working there and they know what they're talking about. I do agree that the trade-in prices suck, but I only trade them back when they give an extra 50%. Also, I only buy used games there on the B2G1 free. Normally with new games, I'll go through amazon for day one purchases because of the credits they tend to give.

    I wish I could have an informed opinion on Gamestop, but we don't have them on Chile.
    I always read that they're horrible and charge too much for games and that their trade-ins and the like are just scams and the like....sounds pretty bad, yeah.

    But in my country stores are even worse. The cheapest you'll ever find a game is $20, and those are NBA 2K7 games and stuff like that. Even used games like Skyrim are like $40-50.
    In all honesty I wish I had a Gamestop here. Sadly I can't import from places like Amazon because shipping is expensive, so I sometimes buy from eBay but even that doesn't save me a lot of money.

    I guess that doesn't mean Gamestop isn't "evil", but remember that there's always worse things.
    I think people should be more thankful sometimes. Especially Americans.

    Blockbuster are not a tenth as bad as GAME or the late GAMESTATION. Blockbuster are actually pretty good value on used games. I was in there the other day and they had Killzone 3 for 8.

    GAME are pretty much like the video, pushing you to buy their 3 rewards card when they probably wont last the year
