Add more to the list

They aren't very good with pre orders bonuses. For some reason game and pre order bonus are ship separately and had to come again a few times to get it. One time I had to go to a different GS to get mine since they don't know what they did with theirs.

You think open new game is bad? I had a PRE ORDER GUTTED!

Each purchase or pre order I had problems. I don't understand the purpose of gutting reprinted games and selling them used. Compare to the regular gutting they did a horrible job with these and gut right through the plastic and into the artwork. Getting an exchange for that was a choir.

It can be good for a gamer on a budget. I bought Dragon's Dogma for $25, and Lost Odyseey for $10. Loving DD and can't wait to start LO.

I hate the one near my house with a passion. But other Gamestops I've been to have been awesome. A lot of people have had bad experiences at Gamestop, but that's not the case at every Gamestop. I still do 90% of my video game shopping at Gamestop, I just do it at locations that don't completely suck.

You want to know why? It is all marketing. If you pre-order something at GameStop what do you have to do? Go back to GameStop to pick up the game you pre-ordered. But getting you to pre-order the company is guaranteeing you enter the store again.

And who knows maybe when you go in to get that pre-order you find that game you have been wanting right there in the pre-owned section. Boom more money for the company.

That is why I just ask, throw out a few titles just in case the person wasn't aware said titles were coming out soon and then if they say no I ring them up.

I've had about 50+ good experiences and literally 2 bad experiences and the Location definitely matters. Well...the people at the location but yea if a certain store is ran a certain way and everyone is nice, then all the employees usually will.

Try to go to the more populated ones.

Your experience at gamestop will change depending on the people in the store as different people will bring different experiences. I've been to the same gamestop location and had a teller that didn't talk at all so I was in and out, a teller who talked too much and was a uber fanboy, a teller that didn't know the first thing about games, a teller who was pushy with used games, and a teller who struck up a deep conversation with me about games.

yeah i know it's all "marketing" but what if they never do that? you wouldn't be annoyed by them pestering you about pre ordering a game you aren't interested in.
