    Hate Gamestop? Do does this guy. He's an ex-employee of Gamestop, and he's done a series of videos along the lines of Zero Punctuation in which he rants about how fucked up Gamestop is and how shitty they are. It's a nice look into the store from a different point of view than most have. Enjoy =)

    Mumble mumble mumble gamestop mumble used mumble mumble.

    Honestly, even if you get past the mumbling, he made absolutely no point why gamespot "sucks". They buy used games, they sell them at 2x the trade=in value.... big deal. It's a business. Don't like it go elsewhere.

    Overall it hurt my ears and probably wasted my time, but I guess some other people will digg this stuff.

    Yahtzee did it better... ;p But for some reason I get the reasons to hate them. I got Prey band new collectors edition for 3 bucks there. But then again I dont buy too many console games.

    Thanks for the link, I remember my first experience at gamestop, only when I got home did I feel how violated I really was.

    A little 10 year old walks into the shop, all his snes games in hand.

    Trades:

    Now, I can't stress this enough... let me just show you.

    If I was constantly stoned at 10 I think I would have gotten a kick out of it, but honestly this game is only good for lulz when you're with friends, its a terrible game but its fucking funny for about 10 mins if you've had something to drink or toke.




    I watched the series and am considering getting anti-gamestop pins for PAX next year.

    Really well done video series, even though his voice was a little annoying, he touched on a lot of things that myself, as a customer, was pretty pissed at. They won't even let me trade in Final Fantasy XI lol.

    Well I'm never shopping there ever again.

    As being an ex employee of Gamestop, I probably know exactly what he is going to say. Will watch it later.
