EB's Free Used PC Games

EB is getting rid of all their used PC games. Take a look before they're all gone!

I picked up about 30.

I love being a cheapskate.


EDIT: It seems that in some stores they're being kept in the back, so I guess you're out of luck in those cases.

I managed to get about 50 games total. They'll probably all be trashed by tomorrow.

Probably not. I don't even think they were supposed to give them to me. I found that out later. One store told me that they're all just going to be destroyed.

Wait a min, if you own a game called: Jeff Gordon XS racing, please make a quick ISO image for me ok, before you put it in the trash. I have been trying to find that game for years

Sorry, I didn't get that one. Good luck finding stores that actually have games left, they're most likely all either taken or thrown out by now.

I thought I had Prince of Persia in my pile, but now I can't find it. It's too bad, that was one of the main ones I wanted to play. =(

I'm pretty happy about Doom III and Knights of the Old Republic. There are some other good ones, but I'm not too familiar with most of them. I'll have to try 'em all out and see how I like them.

This is not something open to the general publics. EB and Gamestop regularly trash stuff deemed "unsellable", including old used games from previous generations. GameStop and EB can't bear to lower the price of these items to something reasonable (or they just have way too many copies of Shaq Fu and N64 wrestling games), so they can only think of DESTROYING them.

In this case, Sobakasu, who works/worked at an EB, got to drop in and save some used PC games from being thrown away. The average customer will still look like a jackass for coming into the store saying "i came looking for the free gamez lol".
