@RsistncE: Most of your argument is rather sound. My only problem is with number 6. If there was no such thing as a Free Market, then Gamestop would not be able to do what they do. The free market system allows them to buy used games from customers for cheap, and sell them higher than they payed to make those profits. This is also why game companies can charge whatever price they feel like for the games new (and also why retailers can sell those new games under list if they so well please). The big players in the gaming industry have self-regulated themselves into a set standard pricing scheme for their games, which means that the government, state, or other government body has not placed any regulations on said goods.
