By WYATT BARGER

Gamestop is one of the biggest (if not the biggest) video retail store in the united states. They sell used video games, new video games, and even offer some nice pre-order bonuses when you shop through them. However, some rumors that have surface recently have brought some mixed opinions out of the gaming world, Gamestop may begin selling retro video games.

For those who do not exactly know what retro video games are, they are video games from older console generations. Although the definition of the term retro may be different to different people, most accept that the time period that classifies retro games is between 1975 and 1999.

Some people think that it is a good idea for Gamestop to sell retro games, because not only will it bring them business, but it will bring people a chance to relive some of their favorite games from their past. People that support the idea also say it will offer gamers a way to trade the games they no longer care about in for newer ones they would rather play.

However, collectors of retro games are extremely worried about Gamestop selling retro games, because they expect it could have a negative effect on retro game market. If Gamestop starts to sell retro games, it would not be surprising to see games that are only ten dollars right now, take large jump of maybe even ten and twenty dollars in value.
