Behind the Online: Previously Enjoyed

Dave Bonnewell's weekly column gets running on its second week with a look at the EB/Gamestop merger called Previously Enjoyed.

Greetings fellow gamers and welcome to what's on my mind lately. The term 'used' is an ugly word in most any context. Used and abused. All used up. Wow! What happened there, huh? She used to be so hawt. It is for this reason that I, always looking on the bright side of life as I am, will henceforth refer to "used" as "previously enjoyed". This phrase, coined by a writer of a newly aired car ad, has a much more politically correct connotation to it, don't you think? Anyway, while there are many instances which contribute to the perpetual cloud hovering dark and abysmal above an otherwise harmless little four letter word, there is at least one perspective wherein being previously enjoyed is very much a beautiful thing. I speak, of course, of previously enjoyed video games. Glorious were the days of buying several top rated and (hopefully) gently previously enjoyed video games for the lowly price of but a single new one. Notice I said, "Glorious were the days...". That is because a terrible thing happened recently. The two undisputable kings of the video game retail realm, Gamestop and EB Games, have merged.
