Well, lol, this is the "unofficial" handwringing thread on this site.  My receipt says Dec. 9th is the deadline but I will get it in before that...

Played a few hours of Jedi Fallen Order and now I am having second thoughts about trading it in with the G2L promo.   The game is really good.

I need some advice/recommendations. I have that $10 coupon from COD and I wanted to pick something up, but most of what I want is going to be cheaper on Black Friday. Does anyone have any idea of a good game, that's not going to be a part of Black Friday that I could pick up before the coupon expires? I have a PS4 and Switch. Any responses are appreciated. I've played a shit ton of games so maybe if you have a few to recommend you could drop them in a response.

As far as my gaming tastes goes, I play just about everything except for racing and sports games. I feel like most of the games that I've missed are ones that have probably flown under the radar. Another thing is that the games don't necessarily have to fantastic. 

I would actually recommend buying any used top-tier Switch title you are interested in.  Would make the game $44.99 before any membership related discounts. I actually plan to do this for Link's awakening...since the ad next week is a dud (all the good sales will start after the coupon expires).

Ok good to know...I want to go to a different store but at the same time I don't feel like dealing with employees at Store #2 acting hurt that I didn't preorder the game at their store. I do detest how GS employees often take this stuff so personally.

so why do people buy the game and return it within 48 hrs just to get back the money there spent on it?

With one game I did it just to get one of my preorders out of the system.  Under the current "Prestige Store" system, stores are more crazy than ever about you just cancelling a pre-order straight up.  If you do a lot of business at gamestop, it's better to purchase a pre-order rather than to just cancel.  This promo offers a good compromise because you can roll over an unwanted preorder to a game under this promo (which is also often tied to the xtra 20% trade bonus).    You get your cash out of the pre-order hold, you give the store a sale and you give the store a trade in when you take the game back 2 days later (also that's 2 xtra surveys for the store).  You lose the tax, which is $6 in Cali, but that's about the same as 2-3 days of Redbox rental fees so it's not the end of the world.  


With Code Vein, there is also a $10 reward cert that is supposed to be emailed to those that picked up the game.  So basically with that and the $59.99 return you rent the game for 2 days AND come out about $4 ahead (even after tax).

Same here in terms of shopping at Best Buy...crazy to think of how spoiled we were with all the competition for a few years there. Even Radio Shack was taking old PS2 games for $5 a pop at one time.

What would we consider our Golden Age? 2012 to 2015?

Yeah, wife + 3 kids under 10 + chores + random everyday happenings = about 30 minutes a day tops during week for gaming. Only hope is to sneak an hour or two on weekend when everyone sleep. And if your wife is not into gaming, you better watch out cause the eyes will roll when you boot up the system. Switch actually has saved gaming for me. Well, except for the left joycon drift.

Edit...when I was a kid (even in my 20s) I didn't get why some guys were up at 4:30 am everyday...now I get it. If you have a family it's the only time you have to yourself.
