I don't have a problem with them, but then again I never trade in a game; NEVER!

i buy games new then trade them in if they are bad, i go through so many games and so much money, buy idc the developer is getting my money and if their game sucks it's traded in for the next guy to buy it used. but support the devs is all i gotta say.

Never understood the hate people have towards this store. They should already know NOT to buy used or trade/sell games there, it's just common knowledge now. I buy games from there because they usually give out some kick ass items if you preorder there (24 packs on FIFA 13 ultimate team!). I sell my games through craigslist and buy used on craigslist. Done.

I personally like Gamestop. I buy from Gamestop new, then trade or sell on Craigslist. I also like the buy 2 get 1 free. Leave the store with 3 great games or accessories, and I agree I never use to preorder games, but now I do cause they always have some exclusive item or dlc. Funcoland, Electronic Boutique, Gamestop... Gamer4Life!!

Not sure why hardcore gamers would love them, every time i go into one of them i seem to know more than the employees.

Hicken1734d ago

That would be because the company focuses on hiring salesman these days; the actual gamers are constantly being pushed out the door.

I don't trade games because I'm building a collection and they pay chump change for games, however I do buy games from them since they are considerably cheaper than in other places.

Farsendor11734d ago

i have no reason to trade games or sell games.

Disc replay is alot better store back in Indy. Cheaper games and more trade in money. But Gamestop isn't bad. I refuse to buy from Walmart.

PoSTedUP1734d ago

yes wallmart are a evil corporation.

shammgod1734d ago

Agree. WalMart, they censor the music, but sell movies with violence, language and nudity. Not sure if I understand that. I am surprised they don't do the same with games since music and games seem to be the scapegoat when kids do dumb shit. Movies though...that's cool👍👍
