"Excellent" compared to their normal trade values, maybe. You're still getting screwed. There are tons of sites at which you can sell your games for much greater value, and Gamestop gives you 20% less for cash trades; this is actual money from buyers at these sites. There are also trading forums, of course.

The ones I do pay full price for, I get $20 credit toward a future purchase at Amazon.
Basically, trading in your games to a place like Gamestop is a horrible idea.

and, more importantly, the people who put in the hard work to create and design these games actually get compensated for it.

I don't suggest trading this game in or selling it if you're bored of it.
I beat it (with 96% completion) and then didn't play it for about a month and a half. I recently popped it in and have been having a great time just ****ing people up. It is a good game to play when you don't want stress about beating anything and just wanted to kill people and their horses.

I just got to the second portion of the game with his son. I was thinking that I was near then end of the game until that happened. There are a couple of missions that I skipped for later that I just cannot get passed.
The Bank mission with the hostage. Every time I make it up stares and shoot the guy in the dark, the hostage gets killed. i have no idea what I am supposed to do. The other was a gattling gun on the back of the truck, I just keep failing at it.

Slo-mo as soon as soon as you see the hostage, and then take out the kidnapper.

Makes it easier for some of us (like me) who find the missions impossible the first time through.

I was honestly disappointed with the ending of this game. You're going all around doing hard missions and getting further in the story and then you get to his family and start doing house chores? How lame is that? That was a huge momentum killer imo, like the story took a huge step backward. The ending mission itself was kinda lame too, the final battle was not as epic as it should've been, but at least the last scene was cool. I liked the game overall, but some of it could've been better.
