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.

I always ask to see the back of disk before even taking my money out of wallet cause I always find it weird that they take new games out of sleeves since reading through this thread it's bs that they do that which is y I only buy day one releases from them. they are only good for that rewards program nothing else

I mentioned this a couple weeks ago about what they do with new games. If I am buying a game new I almost always get it from newegg on release because they always have a preorder discount of around 15 bucks. I almost always buy used OLDER games at gamestop with the B2G1 free option and use my additional 10% discount on top of that.

I have never liked their practice of opening new games as a "theft deterrent."

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.
Having worked there that is just like them. I always felt bad and would tell people I'm sorry

It was EB games at the time. We would only borrow used games or new ones that had already been opened. I always look at my new games when I buy them.

Well now that you mention it, I bet that's why my friend has bought a game and you could hear the game bouncing around in the case. I thought that's odd it's brand new it shouldn't be doing that.

Yeah Gamestop can eat a penis. I've only gone there in the past several years if I absolutely needed to in order to purchase something I wanted that day that no other store had. I'm sorry but I'm not buying a game "new" when they take it out of a paper sleeve and place it into an already opened plastic case. Whether it's been played or not. If I tried to return a game that was already opened and claimed "It's new because I never played it" they would tell me to eat a dick. So in return, I tell them the same thing.

Also, I don't want to subscribe to anything, I don't want to be a member to anything, and I don't want a strategy guide. If I politely decline once and they continue to push it on me, I tend to get a little rude, and they apparently can't deal with that.

What people forget is that the employees are pushed to get preorders from the customers. So that is why, like telemarketers, don't take no for an answer. Although I would ask once and that's it.

I stopped going to Gamestop long ago because of stuff like this. A lot of times you can get a new copy of a new game from Walmart for less than a used copy from GS.

So I called up my friend Cliff who actually works at the GS about 35 miles from where I live and asked him about some things. He basicly confirmed that yes, they do take the games home but they are NOT supposed to activate any codes and that the game is supposed to be returned in the shape it left the store in.

He says that they are supposed to only use the "gutted" copies that they used for display, and that his store does not even have a shrink wrapper to re-seal the games.

Its total BS that Gamestop cannot simply get cover art boxes to represent the product, without ripping open a brand new game and stashing it in a sleeve that is going to destroy it, while they still consider themselves entitled to sell it as new after half the staff has taken it home already.

Anyway, Cliff said that I should bring all 3 games and my receipt to his store, because he's 99.9% sure that his store manager would fix the issue immediately and get me either new copies of all 3 games, or a full refund.

I guess Im heading out there after work this evening to see what happens.

Ya that makes sense. There weren't game registration codes when I worked at GameStop.

I've bought exactly two games there. One was a "brand new" copy of Oblivion for PC and I found it really odd when they had to pull the game disc from a drawer and put it in an unsealed box. At the time I assumed they were just doing it that way to cut down on theft. The second game I bought was preordered so it came sealed and was truly brand new. Now I only preorder off of amazon with release day shipping and I buy and sell used on half.com. I steer clear of GameStop.

I usually avoid GameStop because the guys that work there are snarky bastards. I've never met a friendly clerk there with good social skills. It's hard to describe but they're very condescending, like they know something you don't...
