I shop at Gamestop for both used and new games, used prices depend greatly on the age of the game. New titles are only modestly discounted but this is still a way to save a few bucks. Older games are generally heavily discounted and are a good bargain. Generally if it has no manual it will be on further discount.

I similarly do not trade in games at Gamestop, but I am glad they pay the low prices they do, since it imprves their margins greatly and lowers risk. If the used game doesnt sell they can but it in the bargain bin and not lose money. You can make more money selling your used games online but this requires more work. GME does fine catering to those who just want to go in and swap games in the store and buy something new. Their used game inventories are currently quite high and they do tradein promotions whenever they are unsatisfied with the inventory levels.
