I Ordered Nintendo Gamecube Games From GameStop In 2019...And This Is What They Sent Me

  • Published on Jan 3, 2019
  • In 2019 I wanted to start working towards filling out my Gamecube collection and even attempting to complete it over the next few years. The Gamecube selection on GameStop's website is actually priced well so I figured I would order Gamecube games from them and see how it turns out.

    I was on a Facebook group a couple years back when some kid was talking about how Gamestop was going to "preserve" games. I told him how I remembered when they destroyed the manuals and cases of practically all of their Dreamcast stock just to save a tiny amount of space in 2004. Then I put forward my theory that they were going to sell stuff on ebay to maximize profits. Everyone said I was crazy and I had no idea what I was talking about. Now ex-managers have come forward and talked about how the retro trade in program resulted in a ton of rare games being thrown away without ever being tested and yes the vast majority of good stock that comes in is sold on ebay through a 3rd party ebay seller that used to be called "Green Gadgets". Probably your best bet for retro stuff on ebay is more recent stuff like Gamecube. There is absolutely no good reason they got rid of all the manuals. Gamestop is just terrible at "Games Preservation".

    I feel like almost any old gamer will have harrowing tales of selling their old games. The worst part for me is that my brother and I took really good care of our games to the point where we kept all inserts and manuals (most weren't even read and just kept in the box) along with the cellophane still on the box itself. (We usually just cut around the flap to get the boxes open.) I mean.. that sounds all good and such, until I realized that the sleazy used video game store would label our used games as new and sell them for full price. I think the ones that I regret the most would have been SNES titles like (using the release names) Final Fantasy II, Final Fantasy III, and Chrono Trigger.

    The Zelda Master Quest Disc was for pre-ordering Wind Waker. 1 Disc only. The game ran better off this than it did on the Collection disc if I remember correctly. Plus the Collection didn't have the remixed harder levels

    GameStop’s customer service is actually pretty good with online orders. I got a couple of PS3 games a few years back that came in cracked and broken cases. I sent them an email and they refunded the games to me and let me keep them.

  • Special Agent Washing Tub

    I bought Star Fox 64 and Star Fox Assult together, and later I bought Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door a few days later.
    64 is in perfect condition. Star Fox Assault became unavailable _after_ I ordered it. I contacted them, asked what was up, it still hasn't processed shipping and I got Paper Mario before I've even seen a response. Also, Paper Mario had many scratched hidden behind buffing practices, and some weird white corrosion from their buffing machine. Oh, and it doesn't even work. What was their policy again, that they test every disc? My sister works there, and she gets screwed over by online purchases all the time too.

    I bought Pikmin 2 from GameStop about a decade ago for like $30-$40 + expensive custom costs cuz I’m Canadian.. and it came with a shitty case, a GameStop art cover, and the game itself was SO scratched I could not play it at all when I put it into my GameCube... when I emailed GameStop outraged, they said they wouldn’t send me a new one unless I payed to ship the broken copy I got back to them... and for a young kid I couldn’t afford to do it since I spent all my money already...
    so I was just S.O.L. (Y_Y)
    I never trusted them again after that.. :/

    Your ordering pre owned games traded in *period* and then you complain? Thats like going to a garage sale by someone selling their 10 year olds games and being like its scratched time to make a video where I complain. Be happy you found the games at all. Im paying $200+ for most sega saturn classics at most game stores and you complain about $5-$20 games

    The other Zelda was the Collectors Edition which came with 4 games but if I recall it had gameplay problems. The one you bought is the one that came bundle with wind waker and that is the copy that you want to own instead of the other one.
