The Gamestop pulling coupons fiasco is one of those incidents that seem to hit folks one of two ways:

1. You care and it is a personal offense. You’re mad as hell and you’re not going to take it anymore.

2. Meh

I tend to fall more towards the “Meh” side of the situation. I’ve had a lot of experiences with Gamestops in my area. I have to say, on a personal level, they have all been less-than-ideal. The guys working in this area border on that magical combination of elitist-gamer and collar poppin’ dude-bro. You know the type. I don’t think I have to explain any further. Regardless, their sales tactics are on the pushy side and their aura of snark is godlike.

Hey, I’ll buy a copy of Rockstar Table Tennis i if I want to! Okay, bro?

That isn’t to say ALL Gamestop employees are dude-bros. I know they’re not and that out there somewhere nice, honest, non-pushy GS employees are waiting to assist folks each and every day… I just wish a few would come to the Nashville area. Seriously.

Could I stop shopping there? Sure I could but I understand the situation and I work within it if I have too. My local Gamestop is close to the house and the guys there are the lesser of two evils in this area. Some days, you just don’t want to fight the crowds at big box stores.
