>Say "Nope, I'm gonna pirate them as soon as I get home".
>Another fucktard cashier pops up and says "Sir, you know we could report you for saying that"
>Give the fucktard a stare and say "We live in America, I have the right to download my games if I want to, If Sony actually put the effort into making a larger library of games with QUALITY as the PS2, I wouldn't need to do this".
>Cashier says "But these companies are losing money"
>I begin to laugh, "Then they should stop being lazy and make better games, I'm suffering as a college student and worry about my money each day, these companies can survive from a few pirated games and if they can't...then they can just fuck off."

This guy was trying to fix his PS4 at GameStop as if they are Sony. He kept asking if they'd try it on their TV until they eventually caved and let him set the shit up. With a huge line behind him. Took 20 minutes for them to figure out it wasn't powering on because you need to HOLD the ps4 button and not just tap it
The perks are great anon. I mean, yeah dealing with niggers, autists, and people that don't know the first thing about video games is terrible but renting games for free, 15% discount, shitloads of free swag and being able to print-up pre-order codes whenever you want is worth the shit you put up with for anons.
However, the pay is terrible.

Fucking...I don't even know who to blame here, really.
I used to care about stuff like that, not that in particular but... After awhile I just said fuck it because I became jaded from too many retards and assholes yelling at me like I'm the one that makes the prices/trade-in values.

As are most of them unless it's a very large store.
Congratulations anon. I have a dyke that would be hot with longer hair, and a boss that would be cute if she wasn't so fucking fat.

I feel thoroughly satisfied. You splerglords and your Gamestop stories, ain't got nothing on me.
I always see Gamestop employees in this thread that post as if they are just soooooo melloowwwww maaaaannnnnn
When in reality, I worked at Gamestop. My fiance worked at Gamestop for 3 years. All her friends who are also my friends worked there for years.
Every single person, including myself, hated working there and constantly got upset just thinking about working at Gamestop.
I feel sorry for the Gamestop employees in these kinds of threads, especially the ones who post sooooooo melllloooooooww maaaaaaaannnn shit and act as if working there is some kind of awesome super hip place to be.
not me personally and a bit of a weak story

>Nyquist (I'm guessing at this point...Detroit btw)
>I'll sum this up because it goes into sports which was releving to talk about with a girl.
turns out she loves Minasota, even follows them on twitter. I wasn't expecting her to go from Destiny to in depth hockey talk. As I was leaving I thought, "Yeah I'll go online for you if you write down your phone number for me" But it was too late and I was already on my home.
Should I go back guys? Or is she just being open and friendly ?
>Go to ebgames
>ask to put a pre-order down for witcher 3

I ordered a game through Amazon Prime on a Sunday afternoon that came out Tuesday, and I ended up getting it Monday morning. I haven't used anything but amazon ever since.
Don't ask for her phone number. Go back and start up some small talk about the game or sports or whatever, and when you're done talking ask her for her gamertag or twitter handle or something, and then go from there.
I know this is shit that never happens but I actually do get customers like this
I work at a bookstore that also sells and rents DVDs and holy shit the neckbeards flock there in droves.
Why? If the people working there are cool, it's a good way to have some decent conversation about dem games.
If they're not cool, who gives a fuck, they're stuck working at gamestop.

I have a huge amount of game preordered at GS and the employees don't care. In fact, they've told me that they relate to having too many games to play.
People working at gamestop are there because they have some interest in video games. You have no need to be embarrassed.
>gamertag or twitter handle
holy shit v/ you are fucking useless pussies
either ask for a phone number or just ask her if she would like to go for a drink later when she finishes work
Pretty sure I posted this a while ago, but here it is again

Like most retail stores, they will do everything in their power to get black people out of their stores.
Asking to do something after she's done is alright maybe, but asking for her number while she's working is dumb. Most girls who work retail hate that shit. The only way you can get away with it is if you're exactly her type, otherwise it sets off red flags.
>be le subtle hero she needs
no, ask for her fucking number, that way she knows exactly what you want, you wanna bang or you want to get to know her and take it further, no bullshit.
>Gamestop in my town
>Have tried to apply there for years

Its not even personal to me anymore, I've been on and off shopping there for years and they've never hired any normal looking dude, with dignity and lack of enthusiasm to peacock.

It was rough. We had to have part of the carpet redone because it was all stained and smelled like shit.
I didn't really laugh about it until everything was cleaned up and I had a moment to process what even happened.
The funniest thing that ever happened that I couldn't control my laughter for was when this black dude was trying to sell his playstation and he left his porn in the system and all the cases.
This nigga had a lot of porn.

Have a pretty shaky relationship currently. Could have been my out,plus it was the qt GameStop girl. We could have played games together.
Why guys. Why. The chances of what happened today are like 1 in tens of thousands. And I failed to even open my mouth.
Don't listen to this asshole. >>267551617
It doesn't get more beta than asking for someone's gamertag. Ask her if she wants to go out sometime. Girls like guys that can just be confident and straightforward. If she's not interested, then oh well, she probably didn't deserve you anyway
Ok, this happened at an EB Games, witch is the Canadian equivalent of Gamestop.

I once worked a sales job during the winter, in the next town over, but due to train schedules I'd arrive like 30mins before my shift started so I'd hang out in DVD stores just to pass time and stay warm
you'd be amazed about the shit trade-in stores have laying around, I went to my local one and almost burst out laughing from all the hentai stacked under "japanese animation", best part is the store even have an adult section so the owner probably have zero idea
It's a good thing you didn't. If you jumped right into something else with gamestop girl, you'd just end up dragging some of the shit from your current relationship with you. If you do break up, give yourself a little time, mention you saw her at target next time you see her at gamestop, go from there free of guilt.
