Have you ever resold a game you've bought to a friend, family member, or someone instead of selling them at a game shop? Also if you have, have you ever made good profit?

The reason i ask is i think game shops really rip you off when you offer games for trade in and i was thinking, why sell a 60 dollar game for 8 bucks at an EB when i can probably get a friend to buy it for 30-40 (instead of them getting a 60 game new)

I've sold lots of games on eBay and one game to a friend. I've never made a profit since I always buy games new to begin with.

Once, I sold a GBA game that had some board games. I gave it to him for free.

I traded in games I wish I would have never traded like Silent Hill 2 or Mario vs. Donkey Kong. Eventually I regret trading them in

I sell all my games on E-bay unless their a keeper of course. I usually buy my games from e-bay or supermarkets as that's where I find the lowest prices. A lot of the games I sold on E-bay I actually made a profit on e.g bought Metroid Prime 3 for £8 sold it for £18. I buy games from car boots sometimes too then sell em' on E-bay for twice the price. It's the recession guys you gotta do what you can. :-)

What's this bit for again?

You mean this underground?

I never would trade in a game. Selling on eBay or whatever is always going to be best because the price is going to be higher than the trade, but lower than what gamestop will mark it up for. It's like textbooks for college. I always sold mine on half.com, and made more money than what the bookstore would have given me.

I am way too lazy to think of something clever.
