Perhaps he was trying to start a conversation with you by sharing his opinion over the game? It doesn't have to do with the store, it has to do with the employees.
Sometimes when I am looking for a game or about to buy one, the employees come up to me for a quick chit-chat, whether they want to share their story over a game or talking about something relating to game. Either way, I enjoy the chats; makes to trip more fun to learn from others.
But that happens to almost any store that sells games (I'm not sure about Wal-Mart though).
Also, that recently had happened to me in Best Buy but it was worth it. Got a good game (Skyrim) and made a new friend. wink
So Today I headed to Gamestop to see uf they had a copy of Far Cry Vengeance, they did as i went to pay for it the guy at cash register told me not to buy it cause it was a bad game and instead told me to buy The Conduit what the ******** Gamestop your suppose to sell games ._.
Anyways I didn't buy either, there is another Gamestop i can go to lol
that's weird, gamestop employees never have a problem speaking their opinions about games XD butI've never been straight up told not to buy something. I've gotten a couple "You might not like it" but that's about it.
I don't really see why that's a problem. I don't work at Gamestop, but I appreciate it when people tell me about games that I know nothing about. Granted, I do plenty of research on a game before I buy it, but a lot of people don't.
I remember a few months back, a few customers were going to buy a copy of WoW, but they had no idea that there was a monthly subscription. (though it does say so on the box) When I told them that, they quickly realized that they weren't interested.
Ignore them if you know your s**t, but if you're on the fence about a purchase, they're often pretty right. They were openly telling people not to buy Duke Nukem Forever at one of the stores near me, even the manager. Lo and behold, a month later it's cheaper than Halo 3.
