The last time I ordered a PS2 disc from Gamestop.com it had a huge crack in the center that they tried covering it up by putting a round silver sticker on the disc spindle. Needless to say I don't order PS2 games from them online anymore.

I had a similar experience. I ordered like 12 games, and only 2 came complete... but all of the discs were resurfaced using their machines and they actually looked worse than any disc I've ever seen from GS.

That might be what the skid marks on my discs were from. They were circular so I think a bad resurfacing machine would be the only way to do that.

Just a note most gamestops will keep the cases if the game is over 9.99 usually granted the customers have to trade it in with case and all but eh. Still good deal I might order .dot hack and megaman. Last note you can pay store and have it shipped out to your house


Our area is $5 or less, orginal cases are gone.

This would be a good sale if it wasn't for the fact that GameStop price gouges even in ebay standards. "Oh, this game was released 10 years ago but is somewhat rare? $18 LOL"

Don't bother if you're a collector. Even the disks they send you are likely to be messed up.

I don't really like defending Gamestop, but I feel the need to say you're wrong. Some extreme examples of them selling expensive games for cheap include Steambot Chronicles, Romance of the Three Kingdoms X, and MS Saga: A New Dawn. Those games are pretty much never in stock, but that's probably because people would rather not trade them in for barely anything rather than, you know, price gouging them on Ebay.

So...what are the odds of getting a complete copy of anything? Didn't they toss all the original cases?


about 1 in 6 from the last order I placed. They're so bad, they send those generic cases without the titles on them now.

Okay so my first ordered cancelled because some of the games I wanted got out of stock (like maybe 3 out of 15 games). So I put in a second order and THAT got cancelled too. This time 14 out of 15 games went out of stock.

Gamestop, you never cease to amaze me.

I hate how their online system works.

Add 2 19.99 games to cart

"CONGRATS YOU GET 19.99 game free!"

Add another game of lesser value (14.99 for example)

"CONGRATS NOW YOU PAY FOR 2 19.99 games and get a 14.99 game free!!

They'll automatically give you all the cheaper games free instead of doing what you want it to do. something of EQUAL value.


CAG16 doesn't work either, so you have to do a bunch of separate orders to take advantage of it in the best way + shipping costs. For each one

You do... You do understand, that no matter where you go, unless it's some crazy place that doesn't run quite like every other business, the lowest priced items will ALWAYS be the free ones. You can buy three $19.99 games and three $17.99 games, and all three $17.99 games will be the free ones. If you want to do it the way you want to do it, you'll need to make two separate transactions. Is it that hard to understand?

If the store has PS2 games in stock, they have B2G1 Free. I was just at a GS I don't frequent often and they had a bin of PS2 games for B2G1 Free.

Same B2G1 but I live next to an idiot. Just got bg:dark alliance 2,persona 4, xenosaga 3, FF X, kingdom hearts and disgaea all in orig cases with manuals. Who trades that in?

Also found some gc stuff they keep in a drawer. Never asked before. No 1st party controllers though :(

It's not hard to understand. But it CLEARLY states that that it is "BUY 1 Get 1 FREE * of EQUAL OR LESSER Value"

So for fucks sake, WHY am I NOT allowed to choose? Because it's bad for them? Well they should change their wording then.


I don't mind separate transactions apart from the FACT that Shipping costs make it pointless for GS. Therefore I should be ALLOWED to choose what I want to be my free game. Because they say "EQUAL OR LESSER VALUE" not "EQUAL, UNLESS THERE IS LESSER"


Yeah yeah, fine print mumbo jumbo. Fuck fine print, be upfront and people won't hate you.

It's just common knowledge at this point that no matter what, you will get the lowest cost item for free. Sure, they could change it to "Buy one get one free. Free item will be calculated if it is equal to the cost of the highest priced item, or the lowest cost item at point of purchase." but why would they? Again, it's just common knowledge. With how you would prefer it, somebody could buy two $60 games and one $2 game and demand one of the $60 games to be free. It just won't happen.

B1G1 FREE PS2 - Buy 1 get 1 free on pre-owned Playstation 2 games. Free game must be of equal or lesser value.

it clearly says that the free game must be equal or lesser. Your argument is also not very strong at all.

As do I. One of the closest GS has Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts II, and Sniper Elite, all BL and CIB from what I glanced at the other day. I'm sure I could hunt down a few more decent titles, but at this point, I'm not looking to spend ~$40 on three PS2 games.
