    Default Any good Video Game Stores in the Los Angeles area?

    Looking for a few good ones. To qualify they must carry classic games NES and later but not charge $500 for Suikoden 2 or otherwise try to rip me off. Even better if they carry imports and TG16 games or are willing to source a specific item that they don't have.

    I already know about these:
    Gamedude 12104 Sherman Way North Hollywood, CA 91605-5501
    Next Gen Video Games 5001 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036
    Gameland 3427 W. MAGNOLIA BLVD BURBANK, CA 91505
    Japan Video Games 1509 West Valley Boulevard Alhambra, CA 91803
    Game Play/Spin Fusion 10935 Venice Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90034
    A few in the Downtown area too.

    I will be looking at Hyper Game Action 2130 Sawtelle Blvd #211, Los Angeles, CA 90025 based on a referral from both Next Gen Video Games and Gamedude

    The only other one I would recommend is Games for Less in Fullerton, but it's about 30 miles south of downtown Los Angeles. Actually, I don't particularly care for Gameland, Japan Video Games or Game Play as they have limited selections and not great pricing. Gamedude is good, but they are aware of market prices and you shouldn't expect to find anything rare for a bargain.

    That a little bit too far but I'll keep it in mind. I normally take a bus from Sylmar. I don't mind high prices for rare games. I just get sick of places that do 4X markup on RPGs and rares, the same places ask $150 for Final Fantasy VII.
