My mall actually had two gamestops for the longest time

What happened was one used to be an EBgames, but it got bought out by Gamestop. So all EBGames became Gamestops, including the one in the mall. I'd imagine it could happen with any of the companies Gamestop buys.

Usually I hate gamestop but lately I've had to go there for certain games I wasn't able to find anywhere else (without shopping online) and they've been alright to me.
In fact I actually am starting to feel bad for them since the last two times I have gone into them there are always a few kids or spergs that are constantly bothering the workers about pop culture or something and you can tell that they hear it a million times. And then there's the actual legit neckbeards Didn't think they still existed in real life, thought they transformed into those shitty comb-over/manbun hipsters that constantly are hitting on the token female employee.

A mall near where I live had 2 Gamestops for many years. This year one of them became a gamer clothing GameStop shop. Only shitty t-shirts and hoodies. No games
>>
>>315297607
Happened all over the US and Canada bro. It's any case where a mall had both a Gamestop and an EB Games. The two merged together years ago, and for some reason all stores in the US became Gamestops, while all stores in Canada became EB Games. My mall had two Gamestops too up until last year or so when one of the two closed, so now we only have one. But eh, all malls that aren't superhuge are dying these days anyway.

Right there is when I would have gone "You know what never mind, I don't want to buy anything from evil scum like you who try to silence opinions" and walked away and out the door, never to return, so that the manager knows his evil behavior permanently lost a customer.

In hindsight I dodged a bullet. A friend rented a copy and it's way worse than MK9. Saved myself some money on that one

They probably had an overabundance of them so the guy that sold you the game probably didnt want them to get destroyed just because not enough people preordered.

What's wrong with shopping online? It's not even the future at this point. It's the present which makes game stores like Gamestop almost irrelevant to someone who's heard of AMAZON (eg anyone).

The only time I usually go into a game store is if I'm at a place for an unrelated reason, in which case if I pass by one I may take a look inside.

If you like 3D fightan, check out Soul Calibur V while you're at it. It has a bit of a different flow than TTT2, but it's still really fun. Also try Street Fighter IV (any version but the original), Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, and maybe one of the ArcSys fightan games (Blazblue: CP, Xrd, P4AU) if you feel comfortable with games of that speed.

I've never really had any problems with Gamestop. Only twice have I ever even been asked about pre-orders and even then, they didn't really hassle me about it.

The first time, the guy just casually asked if there was anything I wanted to pre-order and didn't push the issue when I told him no. The second time was with a female employee. She snuck a look over her shoulder at another employee who I presume to be her boss, let out a sigh, and then proceeded to ask in a robotic tone like she had a gun to her head if I'd like to pre-order x and then y. After refusing both, she gave me my total and rung me up without further issue.

Usually after 10 years the expectation is that you would have evolved from retail, unless you're a manager or something. If after 10+ years you're still a cashier or stockboy or something that means you've hit a dead end. Still better than being flat out unemployed though.

The system at gamestop is, from what I can tell, quite similar to Best Buy (which I actually worked for) and even worse. There are zero incentives for the employees to make sales or sell pre-orders, but if they don't, then they are considered to not be doing their job. Even returning something to them can hurt them in the long run.

I had another Gamestop experience the other day. My Xbone took a shit on me and I traded it in to buy a new one. I ended up grabbing the Halo 5 edition since it was the only good one out, but the holiday bundle came out two days later. I didn't open it and returned it to a different gamestop to get the $100 cheaper version with 32 games. The guy was all flustered and kept telling me how cool he thought the Halo Xbone was. I explained to him that I'd rather have games, save money and could give a fuck less how the aesthetics are. He felt the need to tell me how big of a Halo fan he is and how cool the Xbox really was.

Gamestop used to be neckbearded, elite faggots who think they know everything about video games and felt the need to give you their opinion on everything. Now their employees are all 6/10 chicks and hipster faggot skinny emo boys with Assassin's Creed and Zelda tattoos who feel the need to meme you and tell you about how great every AAA platform is.

My area actually had 2 Gamestop's in the mall until 2 years ago, and there's still what was the third one not even a quarter mile away.
I lived across my state for a while 5 years back and the situation was the same, 3 fucking Gamestops. When they're that close, they usually all treat the other two as backup warehouses. They'll never have what you want, but the other two stores will each have 5+ copies, it's bullshit.

GS employee here. Basically, we have percentages for how we do on everything, both daily and weekly. These percentages can go into the negatives. If we haven't gotten any pre-orders in a day, and someone comes in and cancels one, we now have a negative pre-order percent for the day. Same goes for sales. Returns can put us in the negative. Trade is different. Most of the time, if you cancel/return shit at the end of the day, nobody will care because they already hit their goals. But if you do that in the morning, it can potentially fuck us up for the rest of the day. Some employees, like myself, really don't give a shit. Hell, i don't even ask that shit, I just ring people out and give them my opinion if they ask. But some people are super try-hard about it and want to kiss managerial ass. It also depends on how much the manager cares. Mine doesn't. As long as the story itself isn't in the red for the day, he doesn't care how we do individually, or how I deal with customers.

That's not true. They sell old games over the register and they get shipped to your house. Source; I work at GS. We only destroy games with cracks in the disc or games that are scratched beyond repair.

Actually he wanted me to keep the other copy so I could play it, rather than borrow from him or buy my own copy later. So it was a "Why would you say no to something free" moment for him, because he couldn't comprehend that I can't stand filthy thieves.

Some gamestop or similar stores have used sections where you can strike gold. Still cheaper to buy online but in a physical store you can browse, pick up a game you hadnt even thought of getting and play it the same evening. Then again I'm a sucker for browsing second hand books and movies as well.

>>315314360
We have this thing called Web-In-Store. It's basically ordering from the warehouse. You have to come in to a store do it, but you can have stuff shipped straight to your house or to a store for pick-up if that's easier. We added retro games a few months ago. There's also merchandise like statues and shit, too. It's worth looking into if you ever find yourself in a GS and nobody else is there. Provided the employees are willing to let you ask a thousand questions.

So it's basically ebay, but a massive fucking hassle?
>>
>>315314698
So instead of making it a self-service interface for online use, they make customers walk into a GameStop location and have an employee stop literally everything to see if their warehouses have any copies of BattleToads?

Classic GameStop.

It's called being polite. If someone says "Hi" to you, you say "Hi" back. They aren't outright demanding a conversation. If you can't do proper fucking etiquette then you should be branded as too stupid to function in proper society and executed or at least forced into slave labor, yes..

I like that it lets me pay for it with my trade-in credit as soon as it's available and even just pay $5 on it every few days until it comes out. Basically lets you finance your habit with your random pocket change, so when it comes out you just walk in and get it.

Also Midnight Launch is fun.

>>
>>315300334
My local one here in Texas is usually clean and organized. Only time it's a mess is before a series of back-to-back huge launches when there's shit stacked on shit, just a hurricane aftermath of merch, stacks of games on the counter from a million buttfucks trading in their collections for the new whatever, and a bunch of new standees cluttering the floor near the fucked-up shelves that nobody has time to fix.

They honestly don't have enough people on duty during those times to deal with the workload. It takes them so long to process huge trades sometimes that everything else in the store goes unattended until EOD.

Before some launches you can see the poor guys trying to process 20+ traded in games which takes FOREVER while the queue of people with more trades piles up.

Some people ramble whole plots off like that, you have to tell them to shut the fuck up. I swear /v/ has actual autism since they never seem to be able to tell people to stop talking or decline offers in these stories.

That used to be true but almost no retail stores promote from within now. The whole "work your way up" ideology is a relic from before the Baby Boomers fucked it up for everyone.

Now you work forever in your position and they bring collegiate newbies in to manage you who don't know what they're doing. When I worked at Target they hired a fucking Botanist or some shit to manage the back room. He was just as green as any other newbie faggot and had no management experience or backroom experience. But BOY HOWDY could he diagnose tree diseases.

That's retail now. It's not always impossible to get promoted, but it's sure as hell not the norm.
>>
>>315302374
Look up your fucking trade-in values before you even go, goddamn. The price you get for your stuff is determined entirely by how many of it they have, so naturally they'll have a lot since they're a big company.

People just seem to think that they should get whatever they want for their games. They have a value based on their availability.

I have worked in a few retail stores including Gamestop.

What the fuck are you even going on about? Your job and my job is to help people if they need help. If they don't want any and just want to look around the store killing time. WHO THE FUCK CARES? (besides management of course)

I have done the exact same thing. If they don't acknowledge you back it does irk a little bit and no one who hasn't worked retail wouldn't understand but still it's not a big fucking deal. Why don't you get a job at a big boy retail store where you actually do something all day. Honestly Gamestop was so boring. I don't see how people can do the job.

The guy went to go look for it probably very thoroughly and your then blaming him because a game you wanted wasnt there due to a store error not by the middle man which is a fucking cashier.
