The list is so small even interested parties will most likely not have 2 games that qualify. I doubt they will even recover their marketing expenses for this "deal"

Gamestop did similar promotions like this in the past that were actually pretty decent because they included some semi older games obtainable for $19.99 or something you could clearly make out on by getting $25 credit on a trade in (like if they had Aliens Colonial Marines on that list).

Alas, this one is pretty big epic fail, as its almost all top flight new $59.99 games, or rarities you'd be nuts to trade in. (they would sure love to get away with obtaininig somebodies Xenoblade for $25)

Actually picked up Metroid Prime Trilogy the other day from the PawnShop. Only paid $10 for it, but it's in rough shape.

Only thing that it is mildly good for is Skyward Sword if you happen to have picked up 2 from back in the $10 sale (I think it was BBY). Otherwise its a crap deal.

I love it when they advertise crappy deals like this. You get stupid people to trade in rare games for crappy prices and hope to be the lucky one to buy that rare game. That's exactly how I got my metriod prime trilogy from gs a few weeks ago.

I found it amazing how crappy that list of games you can trade in for this deal was when I looked at it. There are a few titles included on there twice, some of the titles that you can trade in are also on the list of $9.99 games, and most of the games on the trade in list are Nintendo games. It's easy to see what the goal of this promotion is.

Reminds me of the time I bought Pokemon Platinum from this woman off of Craigslist for $10. Then she goes, "Oh my son also has a HeartGold version if you want that for $10 too." Feeling guilty, I said "It's worth more than that... will you take $11?"

There is no one true CAG. Some are more "gamer," some are more "cheap" and certainly some are far more "ass."

Aliens was a mess of a game. It's the new Duke Nukem Forever.

Maybe I'm naive, but I think getting $25 each for Mario Galaxy 2 & Skyward Sword is a good deal. Beats the Fuck out of what Best Buy & Amazon are offering. I get the rip-off factor for the rare & new stuff, but I'm happy to take advantage of this with the older Wii games I don't play anymore.
