they should go ahead and get their cut out of it and just end it already

i do buy used games at times but only when the deal is worth it
personally i don't see why some people like the used game practice especially at gamestop most of the time your just paying 5 dollars less than what a new copy costs
is that 5 dollars really all that big of a deal?
