i have worked and you don't know many people. you may know some but not all. hell i do complain as well as others. if we don't want to buy this or that no matter how good the deal is, then so be it. we just want our god damn games, food, tires. no extra crap.
=p


If you don't want the extras that they're offering, then just say "no". It takes half a second.

why can't we just go in there, buy a game and leave without them pestering us about pre ordering this or signing up for their membership? hell, i don't even think funcoland did that crap back in the good old days


You mean to tell me that Funcoland DIDN'T go out of their way to sell you things and SOMEHOW went out of business? Yet you don't understand why GameStop doesn't follow that same setup?

Don't get me wrong, I do feel there are many things that can be complained about regarding GameStop, but not this. This is something that any successful store does.

Seriously, complaining over something as trivial as this makes me weep for humanity.

There are seven Gamestops in my immediate area. Each and every one of them always annoy me about getting a Power Up Rewards card and asking me about preordering a game. I don't want the stupid card, and I don't pay MSRP for any video games, save for Kingdom Hearts and SMT. So I have told every employee in every Gamestop I go to to stop asking me about that. Guess what? They don't listen. Because working at Gamestop, you lose the ability to think rationally and so you cannot understand what people are telling you.

75% of the time, when I try to get a new game over there, it's gutted. They rip open the package, slap a filthy, slimy sticker all over the case, completely ruining it, and stick the disk in a drawer. That disc then gets played by the employees that work there. They can rent it overnight. So they are selling us a used product for new. And if those gutted games have any non-disc bonuses (Online pass, free month(s) of PS+/Xbox Live, downloadable games in the case of Infamous and GoW collection, bonus costumes/weapons/characters, or anything else) there is a very good chance you won't get it.

Used games are sold for $.10-$5 less than new games. Never any more than $5.

Stole the Steam Key from us for the Deus Ex game.

Inept people that can't find the game even though it's clearly there and reserved for you.

Pre-order bonuses stolen.

Dumb blonde bimbos who have never touched a controller in their lives before working for Gamestop. I went to Gamestop recently and used my "End of the World" coupon. The dumbass told me, "I wish the world would end." I didn't really care, but asked anyway. She told me, "I have a cold." That's all. The b**** has a cold.

This is just a small list of why Gamestop is a poisonous leech that needs to be sprayed with bug spray, stomped on, dowsed with gasoline, and set on fire.

With all due respect to Topic Creator, I'd like to point something out to you

It's not that you don't know why gamestop is so hated, it's that you don't really care enough to ask, or do some research.

I don't know if you truly do not care why gamestop is so hated, but if you do, I suggest making a topic on a few popular boards on this site asking kinda neutral questions, trying to see why so many people would not walk into gamestop for all of the porn in japan.
