Called me weird, but the guys at Gamestop in my town were never like this. (Notice that I'm from Sweden)
I was even lucky to get a PS2 plus 5 FREE games with controllers and memory card, all for only 200 Krons! (AKA 20 US Dollar)
Yep. It seems like they don't sell anything made before 2006 nowadays. The Gamestop closest to me doesn't even sell Gamecube games anymore.
There is a Gamestop at a distant mall I could go to...
Fortunatley I recently found a gamestore called Gamecraze (there are 3 locations in New York, but I'm not sure if they're anywhere else) that sells new games and classic games. I was able to buy Final Fantasy IX there, and a Gameboy Color game! And the place is a 15 minute bike ride away.
Sorry I feel like I'm bragging.
