From: melchiahdim | #051 Am I a parent? Yes. Am I clueless? Absolutely not. I've had times when I went to Gamestop and someone had a question and the employee was so useless I had to help the customer for him.
That's weird. My Gamestop employees know their stuff because they're gamers too. I walked in to pre-order Pokemon Heart Gold and Soul Silver, and the guy goes, "Yeah, that's a good one, I'm pre-ordering it too!" --- "I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go." Genesis 28:15 "But I don't wanna be a pirate!"
It all depends on the store and the manager. Like I said I used to work for Gamestop and my manager was a gamer so she mostly hired gamers. But if the manager doesn't play games then details like that don't matter much to them. They only want the sales and reserves.
I've found not to trust the info I get from the manager at Gamestop (he told me that the DSi would have two touch screens) I am not sure if they are fed false info or not, but he is never correct. It's a shame b/c they are the biggest video game retailer, you would think that they would know. --- "Do you want to know the secret of my panties?" - Trucy Wright AC/CF: 1333-7729-4549 Greg@Todai

That doesn't really prove anything. The gamestop I go to however is great. They know their stuff, I know most of the guys there and my brother even used to work there. We can go in and joke around with them and even talk about games. And actual games too, not just Halo and Madden. --- Order of favoritism for current gen: PS3, 360, PSP / DS (I like 'em both), Wii Pokemon Platinum FC: 0861 3049 0976
