I'm not familiar with Game, but Gamestop's problems have been self inflicted.

Remember the story a while back talking about how new game sales dropped at GameStop? There was a direct reason for that... the chain started penalizing employees for failing to sell used games. So what they did was start telling people asking for new games "Yeah, sorry, we're sold out of that..."

That way their used game statistics didn't take a hit and they didn't get heat from the corporate chain.

Brilliant. Just a brilliant decision.
