Figured this thread would be kinda appropriate. Has anyone shipped video games with media mail before? If so, what was your experience? USPS says it isn't allowed and that sometimes they search packages. I've received games via media mail before and I think their policy is nothing but a load of bunk.

Yes, people can and have shipped things via media mail that shouldn't be shipped using that service.
Don't abuse the service. Ship first class. It'll only cost like an extra dollar for single games.
For systems or other heavy things use economy shipping. Priority mail flat rate boxes are another good option.
Again, don't abuse the service like so many others already do.
