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.
