Used PC games in Seattle area?

Are there any stores that sell used PC games in the greater Seattle area? (I've already tried CL to find the game I'm looking for, D2:LOD, no one currently has a copy on there for sale).

    I'd buy that one new. With a used one, you probably won't have access to battle.net. Amazon has LoD for $12 and the battle chest for $20. You can probably also find it at Gamestop, Best Buy, etc.

    I'm not worried about getting on battlenet, and I'm superbroke right now so I need to avoid spending $40 if I can. Of course, I'd also like to get ahold of a copy asap.

    Half-Price Books is the only one I can think off of the top of my head.

    Christ, that's tempting. My desire to eat is battling with my desire to game...

    Half-Price Books, Gamestop, Electronics Boutique, and Babbage's all sell used PC games.

    Gamestop, EB Games, and Babbage's are all the same company now, and none of them sell used PC games.

    I'm aware that they're all owned by the same company, now, but I was just in one a few months ago and they were totally selling used PC games. Is that a new thing?

    o_O Gamestop's never sold used PC games, EB stopped when they got acquired by Gamestop, and I don't think Babbage's sells them. What branding was the store under, and what location?

    I just called the Gamestop, Gamecrazy and EB Games near where I live, and they were all "Nuh-uh" to the used game question.

    No matter, I just bought it off Blizzard. I'm sure there's plenty of good food in the dumpsters around here.

    In the future, if money's pretty tight, you might look into goozex too

    None of the Gamestops I've been to recently have had used PC games. Hell, they barely have new PC games anymore.

    DRM killed the resale market.
