i was just thinking, what happened to gamestop allowing people to try out a game before you could buy it. i remember back around the time of ps1, even some of ps2, i could walk into a funcoland or gamestop, and they would let you play a game you were about to buy. it helped in letting parents see what there child was playing, and allowed the player to give it a try. i know that now days you can easily download a demo, but there are still some games that don't have demos. The last time i was able to do that at a game store was gamestop. it was when la pucelle tactics came out in 2004 and i wanted to try it cause i wasn't sure. i miss getting that kind of customer service in a game store. now its all about reserves, subscriptions, driving up there sales, and reselling used games and giving lil to no money back to developers so they can continue there awesome work. I still kinda like game stop, heck i worked for them in college. they help and hurt the gaming industry, but i'll save that for another rant. i was just wondering, was i the only one that remembers this?
