Fortnite is free just incase you missed that. It's also not good at all and is specifically made for kids.

The physical copies are sought after and worth a bit of money. Is the PVE more free?

I haven’t bought a used game from GameStop in a really long time. Do most of their games still come without a case and manual (assuming the game even came with a manual)?

Current gen games most likely will come with a case, though very few actually have a manual when they were first released. The chance of a game being complete goes down each previous gen.

Opaque rings, cloudy rings?
 
It's to do with the GS refurbishment process.  Shine the disc, then douse it into a solution and scrub the residue away, underwater.  Unfortunately for all of us, the yucky (dirty) water seeps into the inner ring area, creating a now very disgusting, unsellable disc.  A nice green tint is the GS touch.
 
PS - you can do the same with any disc, using the toothpaste method, to help fix busted discs.  It does work, but by the time you clean away all the toothpaste by scrubbing it under a facet, the disc looks like shit.  Technically it works though, it's just now green / blue in the inner portion, or whatever color your toothpaste was.

GameStop uses a disc resurfacing for their discs, albeit the employees don’t know how to use it properly. The reside is the solution they put on the disc before resurfacing.

I'm sure this has been discussed before but need some advice on RDR2 pc before the sale expires. I played about 30 hours on the ps4 version and then decided to sell my copy with the intention of eventually buying the PC version. I put it on the back burner and recently thought about finally pulling the trigger. I just purchased a gaming laptop and should be able to max out the settings.

So my question.......Is the PC version noticeably better, more immersive and worth the platform jump? read mixed statements on the differences between versions but would love to hear the opinions from the CAG community.

It all depends on what your builds specs are. In general the resolution and framerate are going to be better than a base PS4. Played Red Dead 2 on a Xbox One X, then switched to pc. Saw quite a boost in visual detail and a stable framerate. Most of the mixed reviews are for Social Club, which can be a pain at times if it goes down. If you are just going to play single player then go for it. If you don’t like it you can always get a steam refund before the time limit.

I'm really debating on what to do with my low end current gen stock. I have a literal pile of 80 or so games that I'm hoping for a +5 on to trade in, but if GS really is completely trying to get rid of stuff like that I can't see them doing a +5. Might end up trading some of them in towards the TLOU2 and then return it, even if it gives me a small loss on the games.
What they're accepting is wack. They accept a $5 XB1 game but not Fire Emblem Warriors, a frequently $30 switch game.

Trade value for FE Warriors tanked after Hyrule Warriors was released on the Switch.
