    Default Is there a game store that doesn't rip you off?

    I went to GameStop the other day and sold a couple games for 75 cents and one dollar. The next day I went there to check something out and they were both 5.99. What the hell is up with that???

    I know there's other places that do that too.

    What game was it?


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    Well, you can't really expect them to buy the game from you for the price they sell it, and still make a profit, do you?

    Bleh they all do that >.< Though $0.75 is rather low. Maybe you should try EBgames, from what I hear they buy games for a bit more.

    ebgames/gamestop are the same. More than likely u probably sold them old sports games. Sports games have the worst resale value, because within a years time the new one comes out and the value of last years game just plummets.

    It was Bully. I do realize it came out about 2 years ago but it should be worth more. The other one was some old game...

    No... that's another issue I have. Every year a new game but not much improvements. :[

    You actually bought that game? That, to me, is like buying Dead or Alive: Extreme Beach Volleyball, or Superman 64. Or Action 52.

    Well, before EB Games was bought out, they used to actually buy your games for full price if it was still in packaging, not anymore. :/

    fux you GameStop!
