Gamestop

Gamstop is without a doubt the largest video game specialty store chain. There are a few others such as Play N Trade, but for the most part, Gamestop dominates the market. I decided to make a topic for us to discuss Gamestop. What they do right, what they do wrong, etc.

One thing I'd like to bring up from the start is that I noticed a lot of people completely and utterly hate EVERYTHING about Gamestop. I have to say that it depends on where you live. there are some Gamestops, mostly in large areas I have visited, which are jsut horrible. They don't care about the customer or anything else. The Gamestop I frequent, however, has a very "homely" feel to it. This is because it is the ONLY game Specialty store in ym area. There IS no local Game shop here, and therefore the people working at the Gamestop are actually really easy going. in fact, I'm friends with most of the employees on a personal level. So that's my verdict on that argument - it just depends on the employees at the aprtocular store.

Also, everyone knows their trade in system is horrible. There really is no reason to talk about that.

The Gamestops I usually go to, which are both in Burbank, California are really good. The main thing I like about them is the cheap prices they have on used games. But Gamestop doesn't even come close to this local place called Game Dude. They've got a warehouse full of inventory and have games from every console you could think of. The prices are also very good, too.

the closest gamestop to me is probably about 30-40 minutes away, but just about every gamestop I've been to have really nice employees who care and give you their opinions on things.

For the record, I just applied at my Gamestop last night. Given the fact that 2 people quit and they all call me by my first name when I come in, I'd say I have a high chance of getting the job.

Basically sums up my feelings, the only thing I can think bad about my local Game Stop(other then crappy trade-in) is the fact that they stopped selling Gamecube games

Really? Mine still accepts as well as sells them. They no longer accept GBA trade ins though, but they do sell the stock they still have.

Speaking of Gamecube, I picked up Naruto: Clash of Ninja 2 on the Gamecube when I was in there last night (which if you haven't played it, it's actually good) because I used to lvoe it and it was only $5. So, I go up the counter and reserve Skyward Sword. After that, I reserved Starfox 64. When he asked "For the 3DS?" I jokingly replied "No, for the N64." Anyway, we were so caught up in chitchatting and my reserves that he actually forgot to scan Naruto or put the disc in the case. I was jsut as caught up, and didn't realize that either, so I paid and was on ym way. Now I have a game case and manual but no game, lmao. I called the cashier this morning and eh laughed and just told me to bring it with me next time.

Technically they still sell GC games with the little stock they still have at my local GS, but only when someone trades it in. If I want a GC game, I have to either drive to the other nearest GS(15 mi.) or ask them to send in a copy of the game I'm looking for(this was how I got PowerStone and Rogue Leader. One thing I love about my Gamestop is that they'll do whatever they can to get the game I'm looking for

Hope you're happy with the job if you get it, I was considering applying to my Gamestop myself, but I heard that it's a terrible place to work at.

Other than that I like Gamestop, pretty much the only place in my area besides lolWal-Mart to buy games. They usually have some good older games too.

Neomysterion is an unknown quantity at this point

I normally stop by Gamestop just to get a good Nintendo DS or Wii game or two, I used to seek out vintage Game Boy games over there until they stopped in late 2008. Every town or mall I go to has at least one GameStop, and I may skim throughout the store until I find an unusual game over there.
