Have you ever purchased a game, opened it, and found something you weren't expecting? In England, a man recently found a pack of drugs inside the manual of a used game. I imagine that such occurrences are pretty rare, but have you ever found anything weird in a game?

It had to be someone who worked in the store who put it there and most likely forgot which case they put it in. If what they said was true, that they examine all their games before they take them they would have noticed that the drugs were in the case when they opened it to check. Saying its a used game isn't any excuse because the employees are suppose to make all kinds of check when taking in used games.

Back in the days when I bought games from Gamestop, this was probably about 5 years ago. I bought a used copy of Grandia Xtreme, and when I took it home, the game manual had a yellow tinge and smelled of urine badly. After realizing that someone had more than likely urinated on the manual for the game prior to selling it, I threw it out and bought a new copy from Amazon.(100% true story)

Ew, nasty! After that, I wouldn't buy anything from them, either.

I read an article recently that a woman bought her son a DS. When he opened it up on his birthday, all he got were rocks. She contacted Wal-mart and they told her it wasn't their problem and that she had to contact Nintendo, Nintendo said it wasn't their problem and she had to return it to Wal-Mart. Eventually, she got her DS and a ten dollar gift certificate.

The way she was treated still doesn't seem fair and it doesn't seem like a ten dollar gift certificate would really make up for it. Especially since it was a birthday present and her son was going to be so happy only to be disappointed.

I expected these kind of stories from people ordering stuff from Ebay but from stores in town? I'm just stunned :knockout:

Only unexpected things I've found were the original store receipts for when the game(s) were first purchased. Those are kind of fun to find in them.
