Ex-GameStop employee tells it how it is

2 min read

Ever heard of Gamestop? If you haven’t, it’s a large chain of gaming stores in the U.S that make our little shops look pretty silly. They have amazing libraries of games for all the current consoles and a whole bunch of other shiny stuff too.

It’s all very pretty to look at, but what about the skullduggery that goes on behind the scenes. Well, an ex-Gamestop employee only known as “WhistleBlowerZero” has had enough with the stores and has decided to put up a series of video on YouTube telling the truth about all of the terrible things that the store does and how we people should rather shop elsewhere. To make things even more strange/interesting, he has done all of it in the same style as Yahtzee’s Zero Punctuation reviews.

While he doesn’t pull it off quite as well as the crazy Brit living in Australia, not to mention the fact that I can’t understand half the things he is actually saying, they are both semi-entertaining and informative to say the least.

It is getting seriously intriguing to see how the internet is empowering the “little guy” to stand up to the larger companies these days. This was just one disgruntled employee making a stupid video and I tell you, GameStop can’t be very happy about it. I can’t wait to see the absolute BS that they release when they have finished getting some amazing marketing suit to write their official statement.

    Yes, if you haven’t heard already, WhistleBlowerZero’s Youtube account has been SUSPENDED, mostly likely for the crime of giving a swift kick in the rear to GameStop. For all you lovers of free speech out there, his videos are available (for the time being) on gametrailers.com, as uploaded by daxter241, JohnRazor, and probably a few other people by now.


    This links to video 3 of 9. Videos 1 and 2 are found through links directly beneath the video plugin, but are tagged for mature audiences, so you have to input a valid birthdate to view them.

    You can also download higher quality versions of the videos (for now) off megaupload.com.

    I am not affiliated with WhistleBlowerZero, daxter241, JohnRazor, GameStop, any of their subsidiaries, or any of their competitors. I’m just your average pissed-off consumer trying to help “the cause”.

    Thanks for your time.
