Goodness I cant stand these guys anymore. Am I the only one who feels like they are being robbed at gun point whenever they shop there? Some things that really annoy me with them is that the prices for some games here are ridiculous and their trade policies for games is just downright theft.

You could go there and buy a game new just as its released, you spend 70 dollars on this game and play it. Two weeks when later you come back to trade it in they tell you its only worth 30 dollars and put it back on the shelf for 50. I cant stand being stolen from, and that's what these guys do.

Its sucks though because Gamestop is the only Gaming Specialty store around, there are somethings you can get at Gamestop that you just cant find at Walmart or Zellars. So its almost like I'm forced to go there. Yes I know Best Buy and Futureshop have their own Gaming sections but the prices are just as bad.

You have to catch their deals where they guarantee it but my biggest pet peeve with them is their employees are terrible most times. You get to talk, play, and sell video games all day how can you hate that job and have such an attitude all the damn time? Sometimes you can get one over on them but I just usually deal with ebay and amazon now unless I really really want a game right there and then

GameStop retail stores seem to be a cross between a used car dealership and a comic book store (not the good kind of comic book store, but the kind where the owner has a "better-than-thou" attitude and seems put out that you would actually want to buy something in their store).  Here are the things I've noticed at all the GameStop stores I've visited: It's nearly impossible to tell the new games from the used games.  Everything seems to be in complete disarray when you walk …

I've been in better game stores. Ones that don't open the games from new packs and tell you they're new.

Reviewing a place of business is VERY hard to do.  The experience differs from one to another.  I don't think I've ever had a tiff with the Gamestop employees where I live.  Ever.  In fact, I've become quite good friends with most of them.  Enough that they'll give me discounts, magazines and posters they plan on getting rid of etc.  So I usually go back just because I like the people in my local Gamestop.  But there are Gamestops everywhere.  They're …
