GameStop Now Accepting Trades For Retro Games And Consoles

After a successful pilot program, GameStop is now accepting retro trade-ins at all retail stores nationwide.
GameStop announced its desire to get back into the retro games market back in 2012, and acted on that desire in 2015, offering NES, Genesis, SNES, N64, PS1, and Dreamcast games for purchase online. However, trade-ins for retro games and consoles was previously limited to specific geographical areas.
Earlier this week, the company announced that retro trade-ins of games, systems, and controllers can now be done at all GameStop stores nationwide. Additionally, GameStop has expanded its online retro offerings to include Sega Saturn, Game Boy Color and Advance, GameCube, and Xbox. For more details and to browse what games are available to purchase, head to GameStop’s retro section on their website.

Before I became a Geek Under Grace I was a student of Journalism and have always aspired to write for a gaming and geek culture publication. I am truly blessed to have found an outlet to reach not only thousands of fans, but those who may not have yet found Christ. My favorite genre of games is third-person/sandbox games. I like the freedom that they allow both in gameplay and in scale and they just seem less bland and limited than more linear titles. I still have a soft spot for RPG games but I now enjoy JRPGs far less than I did as a child because they are still basically the exact same as they always were, with a few exceptions of course. I also enjoy playing more tactical third-person multiplayer shooters or first-person shooters that try to shake things up. I absolutely hate games based on WWII or Vietnam as those settings and those types of gameplay have been done to death. Though I am not opposed to a future Assassin's Creed title being set during one of these wars. I also typically tend to stay away from MOBA's as they are notorious for abusive, and generally unsavory online communities. My favorite game of all time is Chrono Trigger, which ironically enough is a JRPG but its one that I consider untouchable in quality. The runner-up for my favorite game of all time would be Star Fox 64.
