    Gamestop

    Been to Gamestop lately? Ever felt like it's declined in the last few years? This video is what we all think but never say.

    Sadly I do buy from Gamestop. Once in a while they got used games that are cheaper than eBay (with shipping). Plus I can check the game case for manual, if it's missing or looks like it was a dog's chew toy I won't buy it. if it's got manual in great shape I buy it.

    I liked Funcoland much better before Gamestop ate them and changed the names,.

    It's not just gamestop. A lot of retail chains do this nowadays. I believe there's a thread floating around in GD that covers this topic. But yeah, I agree, it's quite annoying. Thank god for Steam!

    Funcoland was awesome. And Microplay was awesome too. You could go in those stores and take any game off the shelf and they would open up the console displays and put the games in and let you play them before you bought. They never tried to sell you a magazine subscription or a membership card or any dumb crap either.

    Steam/Origin/Direct2Drive/Amazon/etc downloads makes it so that I don't ever have to go to a store for a PC game again

    I shop at Gamestop and like going there. It's a nice gaming atmosphere and I have earned free games with the rewards points system they have going. I really don't see the problem with it.

    Theocnoob's fistula news- all fistula, all the time!
    10/25/14- The fistula has popped. A hole has formed and everything's draining out. They told me this might happen and not to be alarmed. Doesn't hurt to sit down any more. Have a G.I. appointment in a week and an MRI in a week also.
