GameStop Robber Calls for Madden by Name
A confused man with a handgun walked into a GameStop last week, mistaking the game retailer for a nearby liquor store. The robbery went on while the man made demands for liquor and cash before realizing the mistake.
"I recognized that he was disturbed when he started digging through our $49.99 bargain bin to look for something," said a GameStop employee. "He went from rack to rack muttering something, when he couldn't find what he was looking for the robber pointed his gun at me and demanded a copy of Madden '09. This was confusing, since Madden 2010 is out now but we humored him anyway and gave him a refurbished copy of the game, which we bought for five dollars."
Luckily, the only casualty in the robbery was the GameStop manager who was shot in the head six times after he made several suggestions to buy a strategy guide to go with the man's purchases.
