    Default Ever been so dissappointed in a game you turned it in for credit at GS?

    so yea ever been that disappointed you turned a new game into Game Stop for credit?

    I've only ever done it about 3 times in my life
    First was for Spyhunter on PS2, it was one of the games i bought when i got my PS2 network "edition"
    Second i cant remember so it must have been really bad
    Third, earlier this week i turned in GT7, a $60 new game, for $30 in credit. I figured might as well get as much as i could for it with as little effort needed.
    Sure i could have probably gotten more for it on OfferUp or something but i just didnt want to deal with the BS any more, between the grind, the inability to sell cars and the rigged roulette payouts. the update that killed the ability to play the game at all in standard mode and the patch that effed it all up. Sure i'll probably come back to it but by then the game will cost $20 new i am sure.

    such a waste of time on the dev's part i think

    this isnt my first disappointment in the GT series, remember that network version PS2 i mentioned earlier. i had been following the GT series for a while, loved GT3 at friends houses and got it along side spyhunter when i got mine but i was also following GT4's development and the promise of online play (hence network PS2). The instant i could i put down for for a pre order on GT4 i did and the saved up the rest which was pretty hard just out of high school working your butt off and trying to move out of the house on my own. they hyped online multiplayer for that game for so long until right before it came out they pretty much went; heres a game, no online, bye!

    i never went in for my preorder, i got the reminder call the day before. yea ok we'll see, didnt go.

    OVER A YEAR LATER i get a call from the Software Etc (you know in the day) that they had this copy laying around asking if i forgot about it. I told them no. Asked if i wanted to come pick it up, no. Asked if i wanted my deposit back, no. they asked what they were supposed to do with it.


    i told them to burn it

    I haven't traded anything in to GS since the early 2000's.These days i'll just go to my local brick&motor to trade in games that i don't play anymore.

    I bought Baseball Stars 2 on NES, probably from Toys R Us, and was HORRIFIED that Rom Star removed the ability to create your own players. Went to Funcoland a couple days later and traded it in for about 1/3 credit of what I had paid.

    Not really. At some point it pretty much became law in my area that stores required government ID for trade-ins so that kept me from bothering while I was a child/teenager, there were some other stores that didn't bother with this though and didn't keep proper records. I did trade a DVD in for $3, back when they sold them for $10. This was back when they were called EB Games but they're the same thing as Game Stop. Maybe a few PC games for around $0.25 when I got them in a bundle of games and they were worthless otherwise. Usually EB Games offered nothing for the games I had so I avoided trading stuff to them, and I rarely traded games into stores at all.

    Spider-Man 3 (PS3) - I just hated the fucking controls for it and it felt sluggish. I loved Spider-Man 2 on the original Xbox but just hated this one. Traded it in to a local Game Crazy store for a new copy of Indiana Jones and The Staff of Kings for PS2. Still have that but haven't opened it.
    NHL 2007 (PS3) - The first year using the Skill Stick and not a button press for shots on goal. I don't think they had shot aim assist either so it was a LOT of missing the goal all together and not just getting stopped by the goalie. The opposing team scoring ONE goal was a loss quite often. Even on the easiest difficulty setting.

    I finished FF15 within a week and traded it into Gamestop when they were offering $30 for it. Worth it.
    Everything in the above post is opinion unless stated otherwise.

    Never. If I'm disappointed, it stays on the shelf.

    Same here, for the collectible value. Sonic '06 will be collectible, it's not often that a game is so bad that playing with a rat turd would be more fun.
    Real collectors drive Hondas, Toyotas, Chevys, Fords, etc... not Rolls Royces.

    Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass. I hated the touch screen control.

    i mean that might make sense for some games but a game like GT isnt going to be very collectible

    Water World (Virtual Boy): I had a boxed copy that I’d bought from Blockbuster, along with a cased VB and almost all of the North American games. The games were only around $5 each and the VB was $30. I hated Water World so bad, that I traded in to Game Stop for about $2 credit. That was totally stupid, because the price of that game is pretty hefty, nowadays.
