Do people still go to GameStop? Why? To pay an extra $5 for the attitude or hordes of nerdy children?
I thought GameStop was already as uncool as Ticketmaster or

Walmart or Amazon, pal... cheap and quick.

@Sanity Protection Factor: I might have just saved you from a messy death by dysentery.

@Effigy_Power: I do. Around here, GameStop is the same price as WalMart and they have a better selection. Amazon is ultimately the better choice, but I always end up spending more because I think, "Well, while I'm already having this shipped, I should pick up the new Spidey trade and those Green Lantern trades that I missed and hey, the entire collection of Ex Machina in hardcover!" Before I know it, I'm out $100.

Yeah, it's a huge rip off to trade in your games... It's like university text books... You might as well just burn them.. You'll get more satisfaction that way than you will money...

@Loungegecko: I always carry hand sanitizer. Want some?

@Magravan: I always traded my books in, because those were more desperate times for me and I needed the money. Also, when I was in college, the internet was not as useful of a resource for buying and selling property, and books are the one thing I feel bad about destroying.

I'd sell my games through Ebay or something but I've never been able to really figure out how it works. Though most of the time I horde my games rather than selling them at all anyways. Only three games I've ever sold to Gamestop include Finding Nemo for the gamecube, (The $1 for it was totally worth that piece of...), Kindgom Hearts Chain of Memories, and Animal Crossing ONLY when it was outdated by Wild World AND City Folks.

I held onto my books... I still have every text book that I got from University. Not that we couldn't have used the money, but the $100 or so total that I would have gotten after spending several thousand was just too much for me to be okay with..

@Magravan: Ah... see, I never spent that much money on textbooks in college because I was a graphic design major, so the majority of my expenses were art supplies, and I only had to buy textbooks for a couple of gen eds, so I wasn't losing hundreds of dollars by selling them back.

Psychology books are expensive :/ Anthropology wasn't quite as bad, but still quite expensive...
