    Default What would you call your video game store?

    I need a little help. Some of you know, but most of you don't that I would like to open a game store in the near future. I have some ideas for a name, but I want to come to the experts.

    What would you call the place? Keep in mind I do like the words "video game" in the title.

    thanks and only reply if I have permission to use the name, I'm not saying I will use one here, but it could happen. I have a list of names that my family thought up and I will be posting after I hear from some of you. If I do use your name, I will give you a nice Perks package.

    Every Time You Buy a Crappy Liscenced Game, a Hollywood Sleazebag Gets Taken Out to Lunch (tm).

    Seriously though, what kind of store is it going to be? Just games for newer systems, like most stores, or retro stuff too?

    This just popped into my head:

    I like the idea of using terms from video games, like "1-Up" or "Secret Level". You could also use a silly name like "Video Game-o-rama" or "Gameatorium" or something like that.

    Here in Winnipeg, there is actually a place called Video Game Heaven... aside from the fact that it's a hole in the wall, it's actually pretty decent. Carries a decent amount of old stuff too.

    Hmm...video game terms that aren't too obscure for the normal populace...Though you could always call it "Cigal" or "Feelasleep" and just tell people it's a nonsense word.

    How about "Bonus Stage"?

    My favorie arcade was named this. I think it'd be perfect for a videogame store. Simple too.

    "Beepz"
