Goozex sure has grown up before our eyes. Whenever there was a sighting of Bargain Bin Laden, Goozex was there with the game on the cheap. It's a service I love and cherish, and I'm glad to see that the site is going strong as ever.

If you've never tried the site before: do it. It's a fantastic alternative to Gamestop, as you'll actually get a decent value for the games you ship out, and pay a cheaper price for what you get. The site's already exchanged more than $2.1 million worth of games -- a good majority of that in this year.

A good majority of my collection has come from Goozex -- trading in a newer title that I was disappointed with, and picking up ten older titles for the PS1 and PS2 is a distinct possibility. Only the words of Chad can describe it properly: "Amaaaaaaazing!"

Enough of my throbbing erection for the site. The boys also sent us a couple of lists, including the most requested, most traded, and most offered games for the first half of '08. Here's the top traded games:

1. Mass Effect – Xbox 360
2. Gears of War - Xbox 360
3. Assassin’s Creed - Xbox 360
4. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare - Xbox 360
5. Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune – PlayStation 3
6. The Orange Box - Xbox 360
7. BioShock - Xbox 360
8. Halo 3 - Xbox 360
9. Resistance: Fall of Man – PlayStation 3
10. Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction – PlayStation 3

Interesting to see that Resistance is still traded actively amongst PS3 owners, since it was a launch title and all. After the jump are the other statistics for the top requested and top offered games. I hope that Jonathan, Mark, and everyone else at Goozex are enjoying the high life, and that their success will be continued.
