Anyone know a good place for trading or selling used video games? I already
know of EB. I'm trying to trade or sell some gamecube games and was
wondering if any stores beside EB do this.

TIA.

It's not that bad. I purchased Murakumo: Renegade Mech Pursuit (Xbox)
for $30 new at Future Shop, EB gave me $20 back on it when I traded it
in.
You can always phone in before going to EB, and ask what the amount
they will give you for a certain game, I've never had a problem
getting a price on any game I wanted to trade in.
And there is always the Bargain Finder to post any sales in as well.

There's another shop called "Just For Fun" (10066 - 156 street) or
"Play Me" (lower level in West Ed Mall by the ice rink are two more
shops that do take trade-ins.
Just For Fun is not bad, small selection, though, so you might not
have the best trade in selection. Play Me has an awesome selection of
games, but "awesome" prices. Most of the games at Play Me are about 20
dollars higher than anywhere else.
I would think your best bet for getting the best value for used
games would be the Super Flea Market (12011 - 111 Av). There's 3-4
booths selling nothing but video games and systems for the GameCube,
Xbox, Playstation 1 & 2 all the way back to the old systems of the
Dreamcast, N64, SNES, Atari 2600 and so on. I trade in most of my
games there, and the people are pretty fair. If you don't like the
offer one booth gives you, try another one.

That being said, if anyone knows of any other places in the city
that buy and sell used games, please post it. I'm sure the gamers in
this newsgroup would be interested.
I also believe there is one place in St. Albert, but I get out there
so rarely I cannot confirm that.

Oh, just a note also on the Super Flea Market, it is _ONLY_ open on
weekends, 10-5 on Saturday, I think, and 12-5 on Sunday.

Yellowhead fleamarket as well has a vendor or two for console games.
Not much if anything for pc games.
