And in doing so, they have crippled what was previously an enjoyable part of my hobby. (shopping for games) Their obsessive quest for profits, and consolidation of an entire second-hand industry essentially spoiled that industry for people like me, by re-targeting it at casual rubes. And it did this to the benefit of its stockholders, and no one else. The second hand game market now consists of just GameStop. All competitors are so much smaller, and so much less accesible that GameStop is basically running the entire show. It's incredibly frustrating for anyone old enough to remember a time when this behemoth wasn't lumbering around. I used to love shopping for used games. Now I essentially never buy games used! GameStop's exploitative policies are largely to blame for this current, lamentable state of affairs.
