...and yet most of these games, apart from GTA V (which actually is a good deal), is cheaper elsewhere.

Why is that? It's a deal, that's what the sites here for. People who like gaming and are after a new game but don't want to pay £50 for it will appreciate the saving.

Very lazy post. As bagelsaurus said most items can be found cheaper elsewhere.

I didnt put the post up saying get the cheapest prices for games, I said there was up to 50% off game prices in the game store, there is a difference.

But that's why this 'deal' has gone cold. It's all about trying to find the cheapest and best price. Why would anyone buy a game/console/accessory from Game, even if you're saying it's 50% off, if they can get it cheaper elsewhere?

"Up to" "selected items", so just as useless as everywhere that uses the same conditional boilerplate.

Id say the only mentionable ones here are overwatch and GTA.

wow listen to the hater's! have some heat for the effort dude, plenty of people still shop at game despite it not being the cheapest (not me though)

It's not a deal that's worth it if they're not good prices compared to elsewhere.

The funny thing is your all saying it's a bad deal and it's a waste of time but you still waste your time typing your troll messages on it instead of looking for a deal that suits you

game are getting alot of flack since charging for vr demos!

I see no "troll" posts, only people disagreeing with you.

Post really needs more detail than just "50% off selected items". List a few of the things on offer (including platform, price, discount) so people actually know what to look for on the site; it's just way too vague to be useful as it is.

GTA V with the shark coins card for £29.99 seems decent. couldn't see much else

Original Poster

No.. it's definately trolling, the thing is a normal adult would just flick past a post that they weren't interested in so I'm either speaking to children here or people with too much time on their hands and nothing better to do than give people grief, I saw the discount and thought it was worth sharing, no mention of being the cheapest prices ever or the ultimate deal but still a discount regardless of whether it's cheaper somewhere else.

Original Poster

If GTA V looks like a good deal to only one person and that one person ends up saving a couple of quid then the post was worth sharing

Cold. Those prices are terrible.

Also, best not to link to the mobile site. It doesn't redirect to the desktop one on a computer, so is basically unusable.

Danny I think the main reason for it going cold is the way you've reacted!! You grabbed the bait and bit hard!!!! But I do agree!! most people will find a deal like this, then put a few items on as an example. Tip of the day! Try harder next time.

Original Poster

Reacted to negativity from people? I just think there's a lot of good deals on here, maybe mine aren't them but if there not then just skip to the next one, there's no need for negative comments, I appreciate the advice though and will put more detail in descriptions in future thankyou

let me tell you about game. ordered the vr click and collect. took the money online. now an apparent glitch means they can't confirm my order ! game 350 richer. me out of pocket. 13 phone calls and customer service is shocking.

Original Poster

Wow that is pretty bad, I was looking at buying a vr myself, if the order has just gone through can't you ring your bank? Even though your account may show the money as gone they can still reverse it within a certain timeframe

Elder Scrolls Online Gold Edition is decent for £24.99. Includes all DLC except for Shadows of the Hist. Quick search and it's the same price as Amazon. Still good if like me you have a load of store credit burning a hole in your pocket and nothing else to spend it on.

It's always better to pay via Paypal when dealing with GAME.

Well, actually no. I get what you mean and it's great that you're taking the effort to post, but this is a community and a lot of the members will make sure that other members aren't getting shafted on what they assume is a deal. That's why this went cold, plus it's GAME and people will always express explicit distaste towards them.

​One word, "chargeback". Get your card company on the case. Game will hate you for it. Lol

Ah right, then I apologise bagelsaurus, I've never had a bad experience with game and didn't know there was hatred towards them lol I will make sure no more game offers come from my direction, thanks for the tip

I don't think anyone here is trolling. Yes, this is a "deal" in the sense that it's cheaper than game's usual prices but HUKD allows people to vote hot for things that they consider worth it, and cold for those that aren't very good. This "deal" is being rated cold due to the prices being quite expensive in comparison to the usual prices for these games and there being better deals for them elsewhere, and presumably due to you not providing very much information on it in the description.

The comments section is for people to provide comments on posts here, which is what they've done. Calling anyone who posts a comment but doesn't think this is a good deal a "troll" is absurd.

You're right that it's nice to be informed of things like this even if they aren't overly good for the majority of people, but the rating system is pretty much there to tell people if something is worth it or not, so it's working as intended in this case.

Great thanks, I had ordered gta for my son for £28 from tesco but this is a much better deal so the tesco one will be going back when it arrives

Original Poster

I agree that the rating system is used well otherwise people wouldn't know what other people are interested in, I think there is a point when it's better just to click the cold button instead of putting harsh comments like useless and lazy post to someone who is obviously new to this, I love the site and the rating system and the oppurtunities that come up, just a shame I seem to be seeing a lot of people being quite abrupt instead of giving advice and tips, I have had some good advice and tips through this conversation though inbetween the other comments and I will take it all on board and learn from it

Thankyou lisadee, I'm glad some good came from this lol

50% off a game aka RRP

I bought 10 PS4 games at under £80 so heat from me kind sir!

Cold from me, prices are nothing special.

Personally I won't go anywhere near Game as I don't like the way they do business

Dannydbf I appreciate your post, there are too many people on this site that just like to moan. It puts me off posting deals which in the long run doesn't help anybody. If people don't like the shop why can't they just ignore the post and why oh why can't people just be nice. Thank you from me

Original Poster

Thankyou LANGDJ, I agree, I appreciate the advice and tips from anyone and everyone, just a shame about the rest, glad a few people found a couple of deals on there though, that was the intention of my post so job done lol

dfs having a sale too

there may be good buys at game with this offer but until you present them the deal is not hot
gtav i hear (from above ive not even looked or have a clue) is a good deal but then thats balanced out by any bad deals

Well at least there's one deal on there then, that's worth posting

Most people who use the site probably aren't aware of this, but in the community rules it says you should post a comment giving a reason if you vote cold and the two main reasons have been highlighted by members so you know why. As for avoiding Game deals in future, I wouldn't worry about it, good deals from them go hot and I didn't see too many people complaining about them the other week when they fulfilled cancelled PS4 orders, unlike any other shop. If you take it personally though and don't just think it wasn't a good deal, but at least I tried and move on, maybe you shouldn't post deals. Just remember that the number regarding heat actually means nothing in the real world

Your totally right, I won't be posting any deals from now on, I thought it was as easy as seeing a deal and posting it in hope someone will benefit but it seems you get negativity if it isn't to someone's liking, such as saying it's useless and a waste instead of choosing a more positive approach like this doesn't interest me or the deal doesn't suit me, some people just need to relax and live their life without rubbing negativity on to others

Do we have to pay £5 to browse these deals at GAME for 15 minutes?
