    That pretty much hits the nail on the head as far as Gamestop is concerned. Trying sooo hard to stay relevant, its pretty sad really.

    I work in retail and I know for a fact that a lot of cashiers are forced into product and reward program pushing (I myself being one of them). If I do not push the rewards program on every customer, or a protection plan on a piece of electronic equipment, I`ll get in trouble.

    You try saying the same thing 60x a day every day, and then come back and complain about how annoying it is.

    Be nice to your cashiers, they don`t like putting up with your petty bulls*it, either.

    Yep, Always love`d how my Semi brand new game could be traded in for ten bucks but sold for fifty.

    I took FIVE xbox 360 games in, they wanted all of them for twenty bucks...I know how their "system" is...but I still think it sucks.

    The GameStop employees are required to say all that crap. It`s not like they enjoy having to pester people all day. It`s either get 10 people to sign up for this-and-that or get fired.

    Gamestop is like walmart, you hate it and feel violated when you leave. Its just the only option in the area. Buy a new game for 60.00, the second it leaves the store its value drops 50%

    It`s not the fault of the guys that work there--they get fired if they don`t ask you about all that stuff. They probably think it`s just as much bullsh*t as you do, but aren`t allowed to say so while on the job. Aim your criticisms higher up the ladder.

    Because yes. F*CK Gamestop.

    Just for laughs, ask them about their return policy. Then ask them about their OTHER return policy, the one that covers used games.

    What they do in this video, them playing new games and resealing them and selling them as new, and stealing all the preorder bonuses and telling you to come in the next day because the game is not released today when it is... are all things that make me not shop at any gamestop ever again.

    been clean of there tasteless tactics for about 3 years now.

    GuiStuie is clearly the man. Look at him with his 4 figure PC downloading games. He must be such a champ. Sure hope I end up like him, putting down people because they don`t have enough disposal income to buy a desktop that can handle modern games.

    What a man.

    GuiStuie= Loner douche who tries to be cool by putting down people who have actual social skills, and will leave their bedroom to walk out into the sunlight to purchase a game. I`m assuming you never left your chair to go to the bathroom. Grow up.

    DesertDustX, Taking advantage of downloadable games has nothing to do with social skills. Unless of course you are such a dipsh*t that socializing with cashiers at stores you buy stuff from counts. I know a few console addicts that are WAY worse off than what you described in your post. Also, why are people so up on what other people do with their lives? Who gives a sh*t.

    I use to work at a Gamestop. I think we had it right. We only did that product pushing crap to people that looked like casual gamers. (and trust me they were easy to identify)

    The real gamers we just let them buy their poo and leave... unless the district manager was visiting.

    "What they do in this video, them playing new games and resealing them and selling them as new, and stealing all the preorder bonuses and telling you to come in the next day because the game is not released today when it is..."

    Yes employees are allowed to "borrow" games like a library, but with a few caveats. They have to borrow the used version if able, and they can`t borrow a new release. They dont unseal games just to borrow either, they have display copies already unsealed of every game on the shelf, that copy only gets sold if it`s the last one left.

    As for not knowing a game is out, that comes from gamestops policy of seasonal hiring. Which is summed up by "Are your a girl?" or "Can you speak english?" Most of the year, the store is competent.

    You ARE however totally right about that preorder thing, that scandal was pretty drated up.

    I worked at a Family Video my senior year of high school and the summer before college. We get in trouble if we don`t try to push "deals"(sales) on people. It sucked.

    STOP STEALING SCENES FROM MY LIFE!!!

    Clerk: "Do you have a Best Buy Reward Zone card?"
    Code: "No-thank-you..."
    Clerk: "If you sign up now, you can..."
    Code: "I said `no-thank-you!` This is the third
    store I`ve visited today for this anime.
    I love you but, I just want to pay and leave."
    Clerk: "I need your Zipcode."
    Code: "No, you do not. If you actually think you do,
    it`s because you`ve never tested it.
    You are thinking that I am being mean. I am not.
    I just don`t like spam and junk mail.
    If you think about what you`ve told to say, you`ll see
    that you are following a script designed to not allow
    a person the opportunity to decline.
    THAT is rude."
    Clerk: "...Yeah..."

    ...And I never told anyone to choke on semen...
    ...at least not a game store...

    Ive shopped at gamestop for over 8 years, absolutly enjoy the stop every time. They always find me the best deals, the nest ways to trade in games for the most money, and how to even get free games. They do not ask me the redundant questions anymore because they already know what I am there for. More than a few times ive walked into the store, just walked up to the counter and swiped my card, no words said, ive been handed the game that I came there for and walked out. Obviously this only works with Day-Of releases but still. Gamestop IMO is one of the best combo companies ever.

    this thread is hilarious

    all the people bitching about gamestop, grow up. I mean, seriously, the number of 30-39 individuals in this thread is just sad (even a 40-49)

    codejockey takes the cake though
    "Do you have a Best Buy Reward Zone card?"

    oh look, an adult, I bet he was buying an action movie or television set
    This is the third
    store I`ve visited today for this anime.

    anime


    did you all lose your way?

    I figured you would all get along with the neckbeards at gamestop since you`re so much like them, but I forgot one key aspect, you aren`t social people. you may THINK you`re social because you talk to "people" on the internet, but in fact, you lack the self-esteem to carry on a conversation with someone face to face

    I always get dragged into an really long and unintended conversation about what cool game the cashier just played. My responses of "Uh huh." "Right." "I didn`t play that." aren`t enough to get me out of there.

    Just a few days ago, I found out that gamestop bought the rights to the Assassin`s Creed Revelation special edition. I was most distressed because I had fruitfully bought my games at Best Buy where they were cheaper and got better service. Reluctant, I went down to the local EB Games (the once-wonderful gamestore that gamespot bought and whorified) to discreetly purchase and GTFO. After waiting for the clerk to stop talking to a guy about the new Soul Caliber game, I asked if they had any special editions of Assassin`s Creed.

    Turns out I couldn`t buy one unless I pre-ordered the standard edition.

    My reaction was close to the one in the video.
