Here's the thing about GameStop: I can attest first-hand that the reason GameStop's employees push reserves is that unlike with other companies, this chain does not comp their workers. Instead, they allow them to keep their minimum wage jobs, and as long as the game advisors make the ten percent reserves and five percent subscription sales, they won't be written up. It used to be three write-ups and you're out. So, the employees push reserves. I think the gaming world would be a better place if we all just admit that you're going to receive next to nothing for trade-ins. I always associate the trading in of games to selling back college books, which, with my university bookstore being owned by Barnes & Noble (who owns GameStop), was a big rip off. I begrudgingly sold back my textbooks; I try to avoid trading in my games.
