I guess I'll join in on the confession trend. Plus, there's things you gamers, mothers of gamers, and wives of gamers need to know.
I really DO judge you, harshly, when you're buying Grand Theft Auto for your 10 year old. When I ask, "are you aware that this game has a mature rating for language, violence, sexual content, and drug use?" and you just say yes like all is well, I wonder...
I am NOT a babysitter! I'm not okay with your brat playing the playstation demo while you get your nails done!
I know it's your husband. I see you glaring at me. I have no shame in flirting with him if it means an up-sale.
I am not tech support. I don't know what's wrong with your Xbox. I am also not a strategy guide. I don't know what you need to do half way through Dishonored.
Most of the crap I recommend, I've never played. I've just heard enough about it to be able to pretend. You'd be surprised how many games I sell off personal recommendations that have never been in my house.
I'm not giving you my discount, stop trying to be my friend.
You Pokemon nerds are weird.
I can't change the value of your trade-in. I know you paid $60 for it and I'm offering you $7. There really isn't much demand for the CoD that you bought 5 years ago.
I work 60 hours a week. I have two kids, a husband, and a life. I'm not even a gamer besides PC gaming. I have one system and I play about 2 hours of games per week (usually Minecraft with my kid).
Edit: I love my job. I love the super passionate gamer nerds. It's not all negative.
We have to legally tell you about the rating if you have a kid with you and we will ID you if you look under 30.
'Flirting' means smiling and laughing. I don't act like a whore. I wouldn't be a manager if I did. I don't initiate it, that would be stupid. If a guy starts acting flirty I do it back. It's called making the sale and it works. I've turned a $60 purchase into a $300 purchase many times. It works. Stop getting your panties in a bunch. I'm happily married. I don't want your man.
My boyfriend drags me into GameStop at least once a week. He actually did buy GTA for his 11 year old. My boyfriend played it first and ended up keeping it and buying his son Assassins Creed Black Flag. Unfortunately his son's mom ended up buying it for him even after my boyfriend told her all about it. :/
I knew you weren't a gamer after talking to you for 2 minutes. I hate that you guys took over EB Games because let's face it, they were way better. I hate the corporate feel of your store and it's irritating you can't get a pre order right.
You guys are less then friendly and not knowledgeable about consoles, controllers or games.
Please just stop pretending.
I'll buy whatever fucking game I want for my child. I can read and I know what it's rated.
