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.

You still need to write a letter to corporate to condemn the actions of the crappy manager and to praise the actions of the good manager.

Good deal. Glad you were able to get it taken care of.

What people like the first manager dont seem to understand is, if they had treated you with professionalism, respect and kindness from the beginning instead of trying to strong arm you into buying a rewards card, you might be inclined to buy one in the future. Instead they probably lost a customer.

some store in the mall gave me 10 bucks for some 360 games. I was surprised.
