I went to Gamestop to pick up my Adventure Time Collectors Edition yesterday. They didn't have any more copies of the game, even though I preordered it.... They sent me to another Gamestop, but that Gamestop didn't have the Collector's Edition. Called the original Gamestop and yelled at him. Went to another Gamestop and had to buy an opened version for full price...

I hate you Gamestop...

But I did get a Maxwell hat...

I hardly ever buy stuff from Gamestop, but I've heard a lot of negative things about their service.

Oh woah, I never knew Gamestop did any of that. But I've only ever bought used games from there, so I guess I never would have run into problems with repackaging used stuff as new.

They overprice their used games too. For example, I was looking for The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks which the Gamestop near me sells for $24.99. However, I could just get a new one on Amazon for $27.40 (no tax) or a used one for about $19.

I did notice that lately they sold their used Pokemon games for almost the price of a new game. Which was silly to me.

I guess I have shopped at Gamestop less often in recent years since I still remember being 7 years old or so and buying my Pokemon Yellow version from there used for like $11.

It often depends on the game
most games I've noticed with much higher prices nowadays as used are often the bigger series
third-party games are much lower prices (I saw some used 3DS games for lower than $10, while a used Mario Kart 7 or Fire Emblem Awakening is only $3 lower than original price)
