EBGames at Colorado Mills, a Story in One Act:

Yesterday me and a friend of mine went up to Colorado Mills to take pictures of random things and scum the bargain bins at EBGames. Since I suddenly didn't need to buy a Super Nintendo anymore, I had enough money to maybe get something cheap, like a copy of Command & Conquer Generals which I'd been looking for through two other game stores. Of course, being as cool as I am, I found it. I cradled the two-CD jewel case much like one cradles an infant and walked up to the desk to make my purchase.

"So, are you into Final Fantasy?" asked the girl at the counter after some random small talk.

"Well, let's just say I'm so big into Final Fantasy that I keep this in my pocket..." I grinned and pulled a copy of Final Fantasy III (US, SNES) out of my right pocket. The look of random surprise that she replied with is something I'm usually really bad at getting from people. I guess a copy of the rarest damn SNES game ever is pretty shocking, though... I'd say it's almost too bad I'm giving it to someone.

What surprises me is the fact that there wasn't a sexual harassment suit involved when Ice Tyger said this:"Well, let's just say I'm so big into Final Fantasy that I keep this in my pocket..."
I'd rather go hunting with Dick Cheney, then go for a car ride with Ted Kennedy.Neuf sed.

Yeah, screw the GameStop megacorp, I'll go buy my games from some nice entity like Wal-Mart instead~

Really there is no good place to get games if you ask me, its all a deal with some nasty folks. I just prefer getting screwed by gamestop because they can sell me WoW cards whereas Wal-Mart won't carry those.

I usually buy my games at Target, they've always got sales on new releases.  Also the clerks there atleast know what the heck a video game is.  Unlike the really old guy that's always working at wal-mart.

(I have nothing against old guys, it's just that they don't know nothing about video games)
