Forums - Gaming Discussion - The official "I'd rather ___ than shop at a Gamestop" thread.

I prefer online over brick and mortar in general. Haven't been in a Gamestop for a couple years now.

Meh, Gamestop isn't that bad. I used to dislike them because every time I bought a used game from them it was almost always broken, plus every store where I live had a snot nosed manager with snot nosed staff. Recently started shopping there again though and the staff is all around much better and helpful but I don't buy used games anymore, thank Gamestop for that

Edit: I didn't shop at a Gamestop for at least 5 years, also I've stopped trading in games so their awful trade in values has no affect on me



I'd rather shop at Best Buy than shop at Gamestop

I'd rather drink a whole gallon of Tapatio hot sauce than shop at a Gamestop.



Proud to be a Californian.

"I'd rather drive a rusty icepick through my scrotum than shop at a Gamestop... TWICE!"

Actually, I just came back from GameStop during my lunch to pick up my copy of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II.  The manager there is pretty down to earth and knowledgable.  The actually store is a cess pool.

This. As someone in retail, customers like OP are just the worst. We're supposed to ask you these questions because it's our job. We're supposed to get you to spend more money because it's our job. We're supposed to get you to sign up for stuff because, wait for it... 

 

It's our job.

 

When you decide to take it both negatively and personally, all you're doing is making an ass of yourself. One that every employee will make fun of and mock as soon as you leave. Hell, I've seen customers mock people who act like this, too.

Been there when I was younger.  I remember a sales position where they had this whole script where you didn't take no for an answer.  You just pivot from objections and pose questions in ways to get people to agree to the product.  It sucks and you'd make lots of people angry, but on a large sample I saw it work hundreds of times how easily people could be manipulated into buying stuff.  I definitely had people get mad like the OP and even yell or threaten me or co-workers, but basically if we didn't do that we got fired.  Doing that made me far more sympathetic to sales people.  You can grumble about companies or practices, but the people at the bottom doing the jobs have no say and are just doing it to make rent and buy food.



Whatever. I just want a switch at this point which is not seeming likely in 2017



Just a guy who doesn't want to be bored. Also

Im feeling the same way

No really though. If you have a local gamestop where they know you and dont have to ask the questions they do its not bad at all.
