Die in a fire, Gamestop.

Admittedly, this will be a rant about Gamestop because they recently pissed me the **** off and basicly ripped me off, but I was curious to see how many people share my viewpoint, or how many feel Im simply an overreacting pillowbitergot.

Ill start by saying that first and foremost, Gamestop has some shady ass practices, and some practices that are just annoying as f***.

I bought three new games in there last week. Tomb Raider, Twisted Metal, and Hitman. I got repeatedly badgered by the manager to buy the games used. She kept on and on and on with "are you SURE you want those new? I can get you a rewards card and save you 10% on the used copies that are about five bucks less."

I repeatedly say no, and then when I finally just say that Im in a bit of a rush to get her to , she gives me the tongue click and eyeroll and rings up my stuff.

I get the games home and WTF do I find? ALL THREE OF THESE GAMES HAVE BEEN PLAYED. I paid the full new price for these games, and I received USED copies of the game. The code for Twisted Metal didn't even f'ing work. It had been redeemed already.

Tomb Raider and Hitman had smudges on the discs, and Twisted Metal had light scratches on it. These games were sealed, so I had no reason to suspect that I wasn't getting a new game.

I attempt to return the games with the explanation about my discoveries, and the bitch manager tells me that she's sorry, but all she can do is accept them as a trade in because Ive opened them. She then goes on to remind me that she suggested I buy them used, which would allow me 7 days to decide whether I was satisfied and I could've gotten a full refund.

As if this bullshit is MY fault because I wanted new, and not used, and didn't take the bullshit rewards card.

Now Im stuck with this shit, and I have to pay extra now if I want to play Twisted Metal online.

This greedy bullshit is ridiculous. Gamestop pushes used sales because it cuts the publisher out of the deal, and all of that money goes directly to them. So they **** up new copies of their discs and then Im supposed to learn my lesson and buy used. **** Gamestop.

Im told that the code was likely redeemed by a Gamestop employee, as they are allowed to open new games and take them home for up to a week at a time, play them, and return them. Gamestop Corporate feels that this practice deters employee theft if they just let them "borrow" any game in the store. So one of these bitches "borrowed" my Twisted Metal, redeemed my online pass, used it for a few days and brought it back and put it on the shelf knowing Goddamn well it wouldn't work.

I encourage anyone reading to never go to Gamestop. **** Gamestop.

Did you buy these with a credit card? If so, you might consider calling and disputing the charges or going back into Gamestop and telling them that is what you are going to do if they don't fix there error.

Twisted Metal online is broken anyways, you would have spent more time sitting in a lobby waiting for the host to start the game than you would actually playing the game. The community is also really small and the only people who continue to play the game are really freaking good or they use the cheapest vehicles (Talon, Juggernaut)

The game would've been so much better if more people bought it and if the devs wouldn't have given up on it after a few months because Jaffe left Eat Sleep Play before the game released.

This is a long standing practice with Gamestop. I worked there a decade ago and we were taking new games home then and re-sealing them once we were done.

Yeah it's shady as ****.

Yeah Twisted Metal was one of my favorites back in the day. Bought the Twisted Metal PS3 the day it released and it was fun but it took forever to get into online matches.

Never had a problem with them. They have always treated me well. I purchased a used Xbox from them, decided that PS3 was superior in every way, took it back and they traded me straight across for a 32 gig iPad.
They've always been really professional and have worked with me on every purchase.

Hell, one of their employees knows exactly what kind of games I enjoy and always sets them aside for me.

I bought COD Black Ops 2 there via pre order to the one here in dedham.

COD release day is a freaking busy day right? I mean, that's gotta be one of the busiest days of the year.

They had one ****ing person working the register and hundreds of people in line. This wasn't a midnight thing, I went at about 11 am on that tuesday. I felt bad for her, but that was the last time I've purchased anything from them.

I'll just go to best buy I guess, get in and get out.

I wouldn't go and say all Gamestops are the same. You just go to a bad store with a bad manager. I bet you right to corporate or call corporate office they will make it right. Complain above the store you go too.

I would be upset to buy a new game expect it to be new and find out it's been used. I didn't know Gamestop did that. Next time I go there and want a new game I will make sure & ask about that detail before I buy and make sure I can return it if I have problems with it.

I'm surprised they wouldn't refund your money or exchange the product for you.

Actually there is something else you can do. Go down to the local PD and file a police report, at minimum the crime is theft and if they want to pursue it the crime is fraud. They advertised a new product and sold you you new one.

Get a copy of the police report and take it to the manager, ask them how far they want to take this, because you're ready to go all the way.

As to your word against thiers? Actually it's not, it's easy to verify that you don't have an active code on your account. I'd also be willing to bet it's possible to verify that you tried to enter a code and WHEN the code was attempted to be entered which also backs up your account.

Additionally feel free to contact the Better Business Bureau. Again if you want your shit back you can get it, you just have to be a real PITA.

I worked for Electronics Boutique 20 years ago, back in the days of Sega Saturn and Atari Jaguar and 3DO, and even back then we were allowed to take one game home at a time... Not to prevent theft, but to keep us up to date on games.

Oh, please. Do you know how many things you've bought "new" that were probably returned by another customer? Department stores do it all the time. The cops would laugh at you.

So what about the online pass, then?
