Here in Poland we don't have Gamestop, so I don't really get it. Is this store giving like 5 cents per used game?

Nah, people just don't understand the economics of running a business like GameStop, so they get bitter and exaggerate.

The worst part about working for Gamestop is that people think I decide what price they get for their games. I scan a barcode, and a price comes up on the screen, but somehow that's my fault.

Does no one understand how businesses are run? Gamestop wants to make money, thats it. If you bring in a bunch of games that have been released recently, then yes, you will make some nice money. But don't bitch about it when you brink ing a bunch of games that are 5 years old and get a few bucks for it. They pay you very little for old games because old games are hard to re-sell. This is similar to when people bitch about the Pawn Stars. When an expert says that the gun you brought in is worth $2000 of course they aren't going to give you $2000 bucks. They would turn no profit if they did. If people want the full 2000 bucks, then they shouldn't be selling it to a business that re-sells what they buy, they need to sell it directly to the collector. Same with game stop. If you want the most amount of money you can get, don't sell your games to a company that is going to re-sell them. Post the game on ebay or craigslist or something so that you are selling directly to the person who wants to keep it.

So don't ******* sell them to somebody looking to resell. Put it online, or sell it to a friend/family member. GS has to dock the price because they are going to sell it again. Selling it to an actual person you can ask almost retail, & they won't question you. Also, I recently sold just 5 games to GS, and pulled over $100.

I gave them a few games that were all a 4+ years old and they gave me $160, I think they're prices are pretty reasonable.

I don't see what you're complaining about, you're selling video games to a company that wants to make profit on said games, if you want a decent price for those games then you should spend some energy in it and sell them yourself

If you guys get offered a really small amount for your games or systems, you know what that means? It means Gamestop doesn't really want to ******* buy them, because they are hard to sell back. I get that its often not close to what you think that your games are worth, but I don't understand this belief that for some reason this big corporation is obligated to give you decent money for your games. YOU are going to THEM, not the other way around. They have no reason to give you good money for games that they know they can't make money off of.

I doubt they are going to be buying/selling used games for much longer. The rumors about the next gen consoles are going to limit games only to be used by one person. In other words, the rise of DRM.

It couldn't be "Gamestop says" or "Gamestop is like"?

my town had a game store called "Play and Trade" and I **** you not, they offered my best friend 25-50 cents per ps2 game, and 2-5 dollars per XBOX 360 game

Well, unlike GameStop, they actually accept PS2 and older games (actually when people come in with older systems and games, we send them to Play'n'Trade). And the reason you're getting 2-5 dollars for Xbox 360 games is because they were probably games like Call of Duty 4, Halo 3, Gears of War 2, and other games that are older, and no longer selling rapidly.

You gotta remember that GameStop is a business, if you are stupid enough to buy a ****** game then try to sell it back who will they be able to sell it to? If they cannot sell the game that you purchased then why would they take it back? Put yourself in their shoes, would you pay garbage men to give your trash back?

TLDR: Quit your Bitchin'
I don't get why people complain. I just brought in 4 games the other day and ended up with 78.30. The problem is, no-one cares to look at what deals you can get. I am a Power-up Rewards member which means I get +10% on credit I get for trade-in games. Also, I put 5$ towards Battlefield 4 meaning I got +30% credit on top of the +10% I already had.
