What greater weapon is there than to turn an enemy to your cause? To use their own knowledge against them?

I hope they do more than hurt Gamestop. Personally, I wish I could be the one twisting the knife in that company's back.

I'm open to pretty much any game you wanna play as long as I own it.

Yea I have been there 2 and a half years and it just gets worse with each day. I hate the customers the most.

No other retailer is any different. Why people think Gamestop is worse than Wal-Mart or Target is beyond me. My theory is that it's partly because the stores are relatively small making it harder to avoid speaking to employees, and partly because of groupthink.

Not sure which is more responsible though.

since when does walmart or target buy used games for a few dollars and then sell them for $40 or $50 or try to sell people open games as new?

Wah.

If you get an "opened copy" either suck it up, because you were gonna open it anyway and as long as it's not scratched who gives a ****, or don't accept it and move on to a different store.

Jesus Christ, these excuses why GS sucks are getting monotonous.

He's talking about working for them. It's retail. It's all the same.
