wow... now this is just beeing a cheap ass and not a gamer at all.
GoGamer has had some of the lowest prices for games, true they can't compete with bigger national brands but they constantly cause me to make an order when a sale goes around. Sure they don't cater to the console crowd, but hardly anyone can touch them on their PC deals.
Some are spoiled like the first guy, there isn't anyone that's going to please him.
And the 2nd guy stated that it's still the best deal and yet didn't because their was fucking shipping.
to GoGamer, for awesome PC sales, for getting me excited when there is a Madness sale. Thanks Jason for continuing to contribute to the community.
A good comparison to this would be GameDealDaily. It seems like AT LEAST once a week or so he has to deal with complaints from people over shipping charges. Several people made a similar comment that buying a $5 game with $5 shipping is absurd , but if it was a $10 game with free shipping they would have bit on it (price given is just an example). This does show though that its often all about perception.
To make a suggestion (no idea if this would be do-able or not since I don't run a business like this of course) is on games that your going to offer for really cheap prices (> $5 perhaps) is that instead of offering it for such and such a price + shipping , just offer it for more with free shipping ($2 game with $4 shipping becomes $6 with free shipping). Or maybe offer the really cheap games at that price with a certain purchase amount ($5 game becomes $1 if you order $x.xx worth of stuff).
Personally though , the shipping thing doesn't really bother me all that much. I just take it into account when I see the deals. The only reason I don't buy more games from GoGamer is because I'm not as much of a PC gamer. I do appreciate the effort though.
