I found four or five of some recent releases in my local GameStop but declined to buy them. Each game box was tattered and had obviously been opened and retaped. Since it was after Xmas I wondered whether they had been returned which led me to wonder if the cds may also be less than perfect.
There was a bit of a line at the counter so I didn't ask a sales person, but I was wondering if the games on the floor are just for display and that they have unopened ones in the back.
Maybe it's just me, but if I'm going to pay full price for a game, I expect it to be the first person to open it.
I child-proofed my home... but they're still getting in!
