I have been shopping at EBgames/Gamestop for a long time (since 89'), and their service has gotten progressively worse over the years. It used to be that I could just walk in and buy a game, say thanks, and leave. I guess actually having customers come in and buy stuff isn't enough for them anymore. I mean, their prices are fine, and I have found quite a few nice used titles, but my experience a few days ago just pissed me off. So I go in to buy a DSi a few days ago, and the cashier gets the system. He then asks, "So, do you have a DS Lite you wan't to trade in?" I answer no, and that I want to use it for GBA. Then he tells me that they have GBA's for sale really cheap, and that I really should trade it in. I firmly say no. He then says, "Woah man, I am just trying to make small talk." In my mind it sounds more like he is trying to add to his DS Lite trade in quota... Then he asks me if I want to pre-order any upcoming games. No. Then he asks me if I want a screen-guard. No. Do you want a warranty? No. Finally he tells me about some kind of Gamestop Card and making me feel like a fool for not having one. "So, you sound like you buy a lot of games, don't you want to save some money? I mean, its the smartest thing to do." He asks me like 3 times in different ways, until I raise my voice a little letting him know I don't want his goddamn card. Then I get my DSi and leave. Seriously, so many stores nowadays try and sell extra crap that I don't need. I usually just shop Amazon.com, and avoid these confrontations with sales clerks. Am I just over-reacting? It makes little sense to try and bombard me with other crap if I am already paying them like $200. Anyway, I just had to get that off my chest. I am sure I am not the only one who hates having to deal with this crap.
