KB Gamestop have not been in a long time

KB Gamestop have not been in a long time

Postby Berzerk » Wed Jun 13, 2018 1:51 pm

So I decided yesterday to stop into my local Gamestop have not been in one in about 2 years. My god it looked like KB Toys from back in the day. I thought to myself do they still sell games? A lot of the over priced toys were 30% off I give this franchise about another 2 years before it is put in the history books with Blockbuster. I do most of my game shopping either online, Thrift Stores or Ma & Pop local Dealers.

gamestop has unfortunately earned their bad press.
I still shop there, but I mainly view purchasing a game from them like rescuing an animal from an abusive home.

The one thing that really pissed me off with them is a few years back they had just started a digital download store and a game they were selling had a free digital code in the physical game. I think the digital game was a separate game. However Gamestop tole employees to open the new game, take the digital code out, and shred the code.

The idea that Gamestop would open games and edit the contents of a new game to further their own agenda was completely disgusting to me.

I will not accept a "new" game from Gamestop that is not sealed. I have purchased games from them before only to have additional DLC codes that should be included in the game to be suspiciously missing.

Lately I have been buying everything directly through Sony's online marketplace, but that has nearly filled my PS4 hard drive.

I have never accepted an opened game as new either. I have argued with employees at length over this in the past, and was even refused service and asked to leave once.

They love to tell customers that want to return a game that they bought an hour ago "sorry the seal is broken so it is used."

But when you use the same line against them, they get really upset.

At one time I knew a guy that worked at a Gamestop him and other employees always got to take the new opened games home to play so I could see where the DLC went. They are liars if they still tell people that new opened games have never been played. I felt like laughing my ass off when I seen the store yesterday I was about ready to make a smart ass comment to the employee and ask if they still made games. I still do not get the whole Amiibo and Funko Pop craze I guess it’s new Beanie Babies. Few years back it was Skylanders now stores are trying to give those away. Maybe we will see a Hot Topic Gamestop merger.

Well here in Phoenix AZ they are crappie gamestops. I see them on reddit all the time saying they know more about what games are coming out and they are experts only they kno. Well I bought prototype bio hazard edition the whole new copy that was gutied for 9.97. Asked him if dlc was on disc or a code. His answer was all collections and goty editions always come on disc.

I find most of my games at Thrift stores or at local dealers. You get the best prices and none of the bullshit that Gamestop/EB Games offers.

I still use Gamestop now and then. Only when I need a game cheaper than the price on PSN. Or I need a used copy for X reason. Haven't had many problems with them lately. Last issue was with Tekken tag 2 over 5 years ago. (inventory mismanagement)
