Is Gamestop the Next Blockbuster?

Fool Writes: "Am I the only one being hand-dipped in pessimism and deep-fried in panic?

There's more at issue than just the square footage, of course. The closer you look, the more GameStop is starting to take on the form of Blockbuster."

Yeah..lame article...I thought that's what the headline meant when I first read it.

a micro-management game based on Gamestop. I'm sure there would be a lot of depth with all those techniques they have to make big cash.

I don't want them to go out of business because they're useful when looking for older games and the original artwork on newer games when they get those ugly platinum/greatest hits boxes. I do wish they would get some serious competition though. Maybe then we wouldn't get raped as hard on trade-ins and used game prices.

if your from Canada then Futureshop nows buys/sells used games. Just started this month. They could be an alternative to EBGames/Gamestop. They give good prices too. I just traded NHL 08 and FIFA 08 in today and got 18 bucks for each of them.

But I'm kinda there with you. I shudder at the though of having to go to that f'ed up store, but sometimes if im looking for an older game I check there. Once in a while I do come across an intelligent person who works there. It's 50/50
