Default Any EB games worker look here?

I have a bone to pick with the heads of eb games. Why is it I have to pay $54 for a game that costs $50 dollars at say target or best buy? Also compare prices for me (all these were for games i wanted to trade in)
Playstation:
Game--------->>> My trade in ------> Their Selling (preplayed price)
GTA 2 $1.50 $8.99
Die Hard Nothing $4.99
Tarzan would not take (suposed scratched) $8.99
Worlds Scariest- $2.00
Police Chases $14.99
Medal Of Honor $1.50 $12.99
Digimon World $1.50 $8.99
Top Gun: Fire At Will $2.00 $7.99
Final Fantasy VII $5.00 (big spenders) $12.99

PS2:
Tekken Tag - $2.00 $11.99
Tournament
4x4 Evolution $2.00 $12.99

Granted, all these games have all their manuals and the cases are nearly perfect (except for like one) Also they wouldnt take one of my games that didnt have a case, even though they do sell games without the case or manual there.

Just tell me why this is, and I might go to eb a little more.

Anyone ever deal with this?

edit: The first price next to the game is the trade in, the second is their selling price)

Meh, I don't like EB Games, you can probally find it on-line somewhere cheaper. I've had that happen to me. I got $2 or $3 for my old games when I KNOW their worth more. They just make so much money.

the thing is, they wanted to give me 2 bux for a game they turn around and sell for 15! they wanted to give me 16 bux for 10 games for when they turn around and sell em again as preplayed, they get 79 bux out of my deal. Come on, thats a 63 dollar profit there, at least give me half of that, they make enough money as it is.

it's called business. if they sold the games for what they paid you, there would be no profit, think about how big the company is and how many people work there.

you could probably get a better deal for your used games at a pawn shop.
