    I will never shop at gamestop again! They did not honor there 30 return policy when I brought my game back the same day, it was dead out of the box! I had to bring it to walmart just and trick them just to get it exchanged!

Doing this way would also make it alot easier for them to measure data for business statisics

    This is the stupidest thing I've read this week. "Power to the players"? Yeah, right. I just wish Valve bought Gamestop or something. The world would truly be a better place....

    We might want to consider taking an "ethics" course as an elective toward any college degree...:eek:

    In an effort to remain impartial, I further suggest taking the manager of your local, "Game Stop" along to class as a guest.
