The ability to trade games for other games is a beautiful thing. However, it's also fraught with peril. Not all game trading sites are created equally - and if you're like us, the last thing you want to do is risk sending your game off and getting nothing in return.

So here we are to help you out. We've spent literally months trading games on various services and choosing the best ones to recommend to you. We've scored big a few times, we've gotten burned a few times, and if we ever figure out where URm0mZah0_101 lives, you'd best get the cops there before we arrive.

Anyhow, here's the rundown on all the trading services we checked out. Granted, more patient gamers might have made different choices, but this is what worked and didn't work for us.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

I was the founding Executive Editor/Editor in Chief here at GR, charged with making sure we published great stories every day without burning down the building or getting sued. Which isn't nearly as easy as you might imagine. I don't work for GR any longer, but I still come here - why wouldn't I? It's awesome. I'm a fairly average person who has nursed an above average love of video games since I first played Pong just over 30 years ago. I entered the games journalism world as a freelancer and have since been on staff at the magazines Next Generation and PSM before coming over to GamesRadar. Outside of gaming, I also love music (especially classic metal and hard rock), my lovely wife, my pet pig Bacon, Japanese monster movies, and my dented, now dearly departed '89 Ranger pickup truck. I pray sincerely. I cheer for the Bears, Bulls, and White Sox. And behind Tyler Nagata, I am probably the GR staffer least likely to get arrested... again.
