Is "Game" finished?


Recommended Posts

You'd think but I've been in a lot of CEX since lockdown and they've all been perfectly fine, the one GAME I remember seeing with an actual outside recently (Oxford Cowley) was entirely a phone front window.

 

The CEX? Xboxes, Playstations and a Mega Drive among the outside visible stuff.

Templars Square is an interesting place, but usually worth a visit for the CEX. Sometimes some good bits there!

Game have kinda become an irrelevance to me. As one of the rare forumiites who still used to shop there I kinda realised that it’s CEX or nothing since my two closest stores closed a few weeks back. And the one on the way to work is never open at a sensible time so there’s only the tiny store at Redhill left and that’s a good 20 minute drive.

 

TBH I’ve been buying less and less in there over the last year or so. But as on oldie who fucking hates buying online it’s still a shame. 
 

And CEX is still a fucking gross place to shop most of the time. The real dregs of society

I think the last thing I bought from any of the companies owned by Game was Skyrim on 360 from Gamestation when they had that ridiculous offer of it brand new for £22.50 either on release on shortly after. It was about £15 cheaper than either Amazon or Shopto at the time. I don’t think I’ve been in a Game store for a good few years, but last time I was, releases that were over months old were still £50. They did something that looked fairly cool in my nearest one when Fallout 4 was coming out. They made a Fallout style bunker on a Mezzanine, but it didn’t get me buy anything.

Having a fun time trying to cancel my GAME pre-order for the PS5 at the moment. Sent three support tickets to them about the order, all of which have received a seemingly stock reply of 'sorry you couldn't make your order with your GAME account - don't worry, we will sort out the reward points once the order is processed!'. Tried the automated system on the GAME UK Twitter DM's that does have a 'Cancel Pre-order' button... which then links you to a page to claim on product warranty instead. Sent them and the GAME Help Twitter account both DM's asking them to get back to me about cancelling the order and had nothing back.

 

Half expecting that if I phone them up and tap through an automated answering system that I'll somehow end up getting forwarded to an adult chat line instead or something equally ridiculous :lol:

Game, Electronics Boutique, Gamestation, CEX, Gamestop  etc...  Grainger games for some of you....

 

I haven't bought anything from those shops since the Xbox 360 and PS3 era too.

 

Amazon are my go-to people now, and Shop-To now and again.

 

How are they all still in business???  ( apart from CEX which of course is more or less Cash Convertors for Geeks! )

I imagine because they wern't relying solely on your business.....

 

Also aren't only game and CEX still going? So whilst the pool of people that still go into a store to buy stuff isn't as big, neither is the pool of stores for them to go into.

they treat customers like shit

their service is abysmal and i hate them

i hope they go out of business

 

Also this thread:

guys, i ordered something from game and it's gone wrong pls help

 

:lol: in my case, I've never had a problem with their online side of things! Granted I only get a couple of things from them per year, but they're always on-time and as expected. This time, though... yeah I think we can assume I've learned my lesson.

:) Why do people still use Game? If they feel that strongly about the poor service of a place DO NOT USE THEM go somewhere else more deserving of your money. No point moaning about it :) Just change your shopping behaviour.

 

Personally use them to offload old hardware from time to time. Only when they offer better deals over somewhere else. That is it. Internet for every other gaming thing I need. Even my old stuff I put on FB marketplace and Gumtree most of the time. Only Game/CEX when the price is better and I can't be arsed with the run-around you get when trying to sell stuff sometimes.
