If you’ve ever sold a video game to Gamestop after beating, you know just how shitty it feels to have an acne-face clerk tell you a game you bought for $60 is now worth $3. Hell, sometimes much less. Then you see the same game on their shelves being sold for $45 and want to pull your hair out of your head.
