We had a good one a few days ago, why not another?

I'll start with the one I shared in that thread:

>go to game stop with a few friends
>got cash to spend
>see Persona 4 Arena
>decide to get it
>nice thick pretty manual in case
>get up to register
>guy takes the case I handed him, goes to the game case and pulls out another one, shittier case, no manual
>once he brings it back politely ask just for the manual, not going to be super jew-y and ask for case too
>friend starts busting my balls
>seriously goes off about how it's stupid that I wanted the manual
>eventually asks "why do you even need the manual?"
>as I'm taking the receipt, I blurt out in the middle of a crowded Game stop "I like to read it while I'm fucking your bitch"
>dead silence
>leave

No regrets, that manual was nice

You probably got all flustered and started sweating when you were asked why you wanted the manual.

New implies it's in the factory seal. The moment you open anything it's no longer new. It's why figs need to be in their box to be collectable.

They do that because they need a display copy to sell the game. It's the only one on display and it's simply held in the back until someone buys it. Don't get so upset over shrink wrap.

I sometimes get my sister to do the same thing
I got her to get me GTAV on 360 because I was underage at the time but the faggot behind the counter also gave her the preorder blimp even though she hadn't preordered, presumably because he fancied her
>>
>>287924380

Well there was quite an age difference. She was like 7 or 8 years older than me. So there wasn't all that much to talk about.

I don't really remember it too well. We talked a lot about Persona and other JRPGs. She was one of the first people I ever knew in real life who liked them except for my mother, sister, and one of my cousins.

back when I worked at GS every employee was required to ID anyone even people obviously old enough, because corporate sent secret shoppers around and if they caught you, you were terminated

It has little to do with age, and everything to do with compliance

That's a load of bullshit. I don't know how it goes for other countries, but the ERSB is a guideline system, not an age restriction. Its not like a Gamestop is going to get cracked down on for selling a Cawadooty to some 15 year old.

If the case says preowned, you should've demanded to at least pay the preowned price. One time I bought Valkyria Chronicles 2. I brought the case up and all they had was the preowned left. The guy was gonna charge me new and I pointed it out. He was like "oh yeah sometimes they get converted so it's practically new but I'll charge you the used price" and he said it like he was doing me a favor. The nerve. Anyway, don't let 'em walk all over you buddy.

>food metaphor
Every time.

Employees that check out new games also have to buy the game outright if there is a single scratch when it comes back or if one-time codes are used. Manager's that don't comply with this and its found out they are fired

If there is a scratch on your new copy that is opened, ask for the cell number of that store manager's regional manager, those are the guys that will bend over backwards to please you.

You will
A) probably get that store manager fired
B) get a ton of free shit and an unscratched sealed copy

Look the store managers are probably going to be fuckups I can tell you.

But the regional manager is a whole different breed

A) they are hired for their aggressive salesmenship and compete with other regional managers for store rankings
B) they have one store maybe they hang out at and work from their office, they control lots and lots of stores, there is a good chance they don't know the last name of any store manager in their region
C) This is just as serious as>>287926340
D) store managers are just as replaceable as other employees they will fire people until they find the most attractive fuckup

take it from someone who was a manager there for years, this is company policy and other things may be lax but not this

One time I was in a gamestop and this black lady was selling a bunch of shitty gamecube liscensed games, and she was also trying to sell F-Zero GX. the gamestop employee said they would give her some ridiculously low amount for it so I offered to play her like a dollar more than they offered. she ended up selling it to gamestop instead cause she wanted the store credit to buy a shitty xbox 360 for her screaming kid.

They could, you know, put a dummy case out. You know, like the dozen they put on display months before a game releases.

I just love buying the last "new" game in stock.

>Disc/cart has been sitting in a paper sleeve, potentially for months, getting tossed around, left on counters, etc.
>Game case has been sitting on a shelf for months, covered in finger prints, potentially with cracks, and a nice, sticky smudge where the sticker used to be

There's a reason I don't buy games used, and so when I buy "new" I expect fucking pristine as Antarctic snow.

>>
>>287937013
MK's the normiest fighting game because of the blood, tits, American developer and the fact that pre-9 the games had virtually no depth to them at all. X looks phenomenal, though, I'm not even gonna front.

MK is the most normie-friendly fighting series ever made, unless you count smash bros. The gore from fatalities and whatnot along with the more western character/stage design play a big part, even if a lot of characters have jap influence (raiden, liu kang, kung lao, the ninjas). For people who actually want to enjoy the gameplay (so like 20% of the MK fan base), the combos and move inputs are incredibly simple compared to pretty much any traditional japanese fighting game. I like MK and Injustice, but that's just the way it is and how it's always been.

>>287937845

How about an EB games story, so from several years ago.

>be friends with multiple employees
>get to hang out, play games in the store, shoot the shit

>my PS1 is old and shows signs of wear
>employee friends say to bring it in for an "exchange"
>bring it in. they grab a brand new PS1, open it and give me the new console and put my old one back in the new box

>get to have any magazines I want
>take the max that they allow
>never read them

That's the only thing I regret, taking something like that and not using (reading) it. Believe it not I still felt wasteful.

>one employee went to Japan and got a Japanese release Dreamcast with zillions of copied games months before NA release
>we played the shit out of it at his house
>sets it up in a demo kiosk like it's something to buy
>random people play it, and every week someone asks to buy it over what he paid, but he refuses
>I was able to take it home and play it by myself
>he said "whatever you do, don't save over the Sonic save"

I'm normal in every way. I havea gf etc. I do a lot of traveling for my job, and for some reason a couple of years ago I was near a GameStop. I went in to get a Ds game and the people behind the counter were just obnoxious ex-scenesters who were engrossed in a conversation about numb3rs. So I just shit myself. I shot my pants and asked for help, I dwelled for a really long time and asked a million questions about powerups etc. To make it so that they had to be near me the entire time, smelling my shit. It doesn't make me horny or anything, I just think that its cool.

Ever since then I've shit my pants before entering over 20 different GameStop and done the same thing, I got a mm3ds and also tons of promotional shit out of it just assuming its because they want me to leave. At one point I wore jorts and had a visible shart-stream roll down my leg as a 8/10 girl was kneeling by the bottom shelf looking for atelier rorona for me.

I haven't been inside of a gamestop for like 8 years. I am actually scared to set foot inside one now.
Just thinking of all those scratched, feces stained, booger encrusted madden copies littering the entire store, and all those games without cases with 50 stickers covering every surface while some retarded shit is yelling about calla-dooty at me is enough to make me want to vomit.

That's really nasty you fucking idiot. He's my brother from another mother. I wouldn't do that to him. Besides. He looks like a guy straight up, just has long hair, I have no idea why that day all of a sudden the gamestop bastard decided to do that to him.

This.

If you want to buy used games you can find better deals on craigslist. If you want to buy new games you can go literally anywhere and pay the same price.
