You wanna see the future of America

Unread postby FUDU » Wed Dec 26, 2007 9:30 pm

Stop on in your local Game Stop store for 5 good minutes.

Future doesn't look too bright.

I have not been inside a video game store in at least 10 years and when I was there were few customers inside.

So after picking up a semi used duel Nintendo/Super Nintendo console a few days ago I decided to try Game Stop for a hard to find SN game and WOW was I introduced to a scary reality.

This place was packed today, which I can understand it being Dec. 26th and all, but the kids that were in there? OMFG. Not only did it look like 95% of them have not showered in weeks but they couldn't speak a lick of English (and they didn't look like they just came off a boat) and the smell of pot was overwhelming.

Pretty freakin sad, and the adults? Forget it.

There was on guy who I assume was an adult b/c he had two 11-12 years olds with him and he bent over to see a game on the lowest rack. I looked down while walking by so as not to touch his smelly ass and I almost fainted after seeing the butt crack this fat POS had displayed to the world due to his over sized outdated disgusting ass pair of sweat pants hanging to low. Minimum 8 inch butt crack, Tim Allen would have been proud.

I couldn't let it go, there were too many younger kids walking around so I had to say something. So what do you say to somebody who has a near ruler sized ass crack showing, so all I said was "pull your freakin pants up, that's god damn disgusting". He just looked around as if it was somebody else that was showing ass, I said "no I am talking to you".

He stood up and just stared at me like a I was speaking aboriginal.

Then to no surprise I notice his kids have coats and shoes that look like they were from my closet from 1978.

Unreal.

I like video games as much as the next person but my god step away from the console at some point, shower up and step outside...problem is they probably cannot survive in real sunlight.

Yeah those people are morons Gamestop is the 4th Reich. I was buying Call of Duty 4 and the clerk asks "Did you get Halo 3 yet?" I said that I wasnt into Halo. and he goes "are you a noob?" then I got him fired. I dont shop there anymore because I dont like hearing the opinion of a pimply faced teen who has never seen a pair of boobs much less a vagina unless its on a porn (which it is).

Contrary to what Dalton says, some people don't understand nice and need to be told things in a way that embarrasses or demeans them.

But seriously it is too much to ask somebody to not show me their ass crack and to leave their pot in the car? If I want some pot I know where to get it (I think) or I could go to Blossom. But a video game rental store?

This is a very important point. How many girls cream their pants over the number one ranked halo 3 player? How many young men spend countless hours playing halo 3 trying to attain the number one ranking?

Remember when impressing girls was the most important thing. I would do things like get a job to earn money to take them on dates. Exercise to look good so I could take them out on dates. Play football in high school, because nothing is hotter than a dude covered in blood and mud and sweat, dressed head to toe in pads, coming over to talk to her after a game that everybody in the town came to watch, so I could ask her out on a date. Shower, so I could smell good so she would go out with me on a date.

I'm 27. Their has been quite a shift in society in the past 10 years.

It would be very interesting to see what would happen if, for some reason, society had to resort to a lord of the flies environment. Survival of the fittest and sperm competition make a triumphant return, and I get to wear the dude at game stop as a hat.

Most girls aren't into HS football players anymore :roll :roll: (I was one, this year was my senior year.) ...Sad to say they are more into the indie rock looking losers who play xbox 24 hours straight and listens to lame music. I've seen girls pretty much do what their heroes in paris and britney have done and get drunk, party, get pregnant so they can be with their high school boyfriend "forever". I'm still shocked their parents have such a loose lease on them.



It's a fad..These idiots much like ben roethlisberger and the steelers winning will disapear off the face of the earth in ten years, and the People in this generation striving to be successful

Sadly, yes. First of all, I hate being pushed for sales like all these retail associates have to do..."would you like to reserve a copy of Halo 3?"....and secondly, I don't want to spend 20 minutes talking about the game I am going to buy, I just want to buy it and go play it.

Just FTR I was not ripping the people working the Game Stop, they seemed semi OK but I never stayed long enough to come close to dealing with them.

But I now know I will never have to step foot inside one of those stores again b/c I found the game I have been searching for the past 4 days.

Unreal the game cost probably $29-30 brand new in 1993 and still goes for $18-25 used today.

Buying stuff like old Super Nintendo games is the reason eBay rocks.

I might actually get myself a Super Nintendo console, just because that was the last system I could play and love. I have an xBox and god I hate the games on that.

Hard to find Nintendo stuff is not much cheaper if at all on ebay, the rarity of Nintendo and SNES stuff is no secret even to those who are not in the know. I just got Super Mario Kart (one of the best two player video games to date on any system, still) and it is as much on ebay as anywhere you might find it locally.

Also the NES/SNES systems are not cheap either, the redesigned NES console (the real small top loader version) sells for $99 at most places, if you can find it. I just found a duel NES/SNES console (made by an after market company) NIB for $69. It is exactly what it sounds like, it plays both 8 bit & 16 bit games and uses the SNES controllers for every game.

Don't even waste your time picking up a used original NES, they are just too unreliable, poor design.
