    I want to sell them but I don't know where to. I'm thinking Gamestop but most of the trade-in prices are horrid except for the featured ones. Anyone know what I should do with all these spare games?

    Pawn Shop.
    Reach 100 posts and sell them on the GBAtemp Trading Forum.

    Wow this is the first time I've heard of Goozex... seems like an interesting idea. Have you personally used it?

    Hmm...Pawn shop? Not so much around here. [​IMG]
    I'll try and hit 100 and go to the Trading Forums.
    What's goozex?

    EDIT: Ah a game trading service. I'm more for making money though. [​IMG]

    Gamestop will give you $8-$15 for games, not too bad

    Dude, no way. $8-15 for like... decent, new games. The most I've ever gotten from Gamestop was maybe around $20 for a game. Once they offered to buy a GBA game from me (back before the DS) for $1. Others ran about $4.

    Wait on Gamestop, but do it. About every month or two they have these coupon/deals in store where you take in 3 games, get an extra 10%, 4 games is 20% and 5 games is 30%. This will raise the value of their crap trade-in insulting value to where it's more worth doing that than the hassle of ebay shipping and deadbeat/slow buyers.

    Personally in town here in Louisville there's the Book and Music Exchange and they give more by using ebay to price an item and give a closer to realistic value of it whereas Gamestop gives like 15-25% unless it's something stupid rare to them. Even in the case of rare you'll get slightly hosed without that booster deal to their trade in value. SMB1 on GBA sells for $30, and they'd pay you like oh $12-15 for it while my local guy would give that much in CASH vs like $20 in store credit.

    Also price your shit before selling:

    eBay.

    Why would anyone even consider trading in games to Gamestop?
