    I buy 90% of my games pre-owned anyway, if I buy new it better be factory sealed...
    But I know what you mean. I've bought opened games at EB that they've tried to pass off as brand new, I have no issue calling them out on it and grab me a new one or sell it to me at the pre-owned price.

    And the worst is you get a "new" game from the drawer. How do I know if they aren't being shifty and putting in a used game and charging me 60 frickin dollars. Back in the day, a new game was wrapped in cellophane.

    That "new" game you're getting is the last new copy of the game. If you're that worried about it, you should have bought it new sooner, buy it pre-owned, or wait it out and get a new copy later. Hell, buy it pre-owned, beat it, then bring it back within seven days. Bam. Everyone wins.

    Some stores do and at least if you buy online they always come shrink wrapped. At least they have been for me.

    You can see the plastic still on the box in my pic.

    I used to rent games all the time and still do on occasion from Redbox. Those days are coming to and end though with games being tied to particular consoles and digital versions becoming the only version you can access. This is being done intentionally you know..to kill the second hand market. It's a shame really, they are forcing more and more people to find ways to pirate stuff.

    No. I've always bought my games. I've never had any real interest in renting a game.

    I have rented games on a couple of occasions, but I usually prefer to buy games
