GAME is pretty much my last resort for game purchases, and today I remembered why. Sneaky tactics like hiding normal editions of games in the stock room, having only special editions — which are considerably more expensive — on display. It didn’t escape me, a regular video game consumer, but the more casual shopper could easily be fooled.
Oh, and the fact that every time I shop there my gender is somehow brought into it. “You would love Skyrim, you can play AS A GIRL!”. Not forgetting the time I queued for Crackdown and was greeted with “This isn’t a very feminine choice”.
I’d much rather throw my cash at the independent dealers, or even GameStation. Yes, I know GameStation was bought by GAME a few years ago, but there seems to be a huge difference in the attitudes of staff. GAME is run by suits. Sneaky, sexist suits.
