And if you want a place that isn't Gamestop/Best Buy, look in to any local game places that take trade ins. Often times they want your business so they will take new and old stuff.
I trade local and I feel they give me competitive prices.

I didn't sell everything, but I sold a few lots on eBay and then saved the rest for when GameStop runs their tiered trade-in offers so I'd have plenty of $2+ fodder to pad the trade to get the maximum bonus.
Another option might be to use social media to organize a small event (try to get free space in a public building or a low-cost venue like a Legion Hall or something similar to cut down on overhead) for buying/selling/trading games. With more people involved, it'll draw a better crowd and give you a better chance to move your goods. If you're a college student, there might be free spaces on campus that would allow this activity (with permission, of course).

More recently, just last week in fact, I sold a copy of Vanquish to someone. It sold on Monday night I believe, I didn't have a box handy so I grabbed one at work Tues & had my wife drop it in the mail on Weds - well within the timeframe they give you to ship. Before I could get home from work to mark it as shipped & give them the Delivery Conf. #, they requested a cancellation because "they hadn't seen any shipping progress". I informed them that it had already been shipped & gave them the info, so now I'm just hoping they don't return the thing.

It's my #1 go-to spot when I have a game of value to sell. Look over all of the listings/prices for the game and list it for a bit less (buck or two) than the lowest comparable (or higher) with an accurate description and it should sell within a week every time if it has any sort of demand.

"like new" you could probably get a couple bucks more than the lowest used price on amazon with a lower rated condition.
