There are a few people from Dallas here that I know of, but I don't know of any special deals or info. There sure aren't any good flea markets or anything in North Dallas AFAIK.

I probably even saw a few CAGs last weekend at Dear Friends in Ft Worth, though I didn't know at the time, of course.

Yeah, Dallas does kinda suck for flea market's, etc. But occasionally you can find some good pawn shop deals (I found Rez complete for $10 a few months back :)).

Dallas has several Gamerushes and Fry's so you guys have it good. I go there about once a year to visit friends and always hit up the GR's to see if I find anything good.

Have you guys never heard of trader's Village? I think it is one of the largest flea markets in the US, and it is very close to Dallas in Grand Prairie.

I have not heard of that but I'll see if I can find some info on it. DFW is so big that Grand Prairie is actually about 75 mins or more from me, depending on traffic.

Hell yeah!! That place is pretty cool for an afternoon of fuckin off. I don't go very often anymore but they have a shop that has old games (GG, Gen, NES) for fair prices and old VHS movies. They used to sell brand new games for like $25 awhile back but I never bought from them. I really should go back soon and see what I find.

Ps: While I'm here, does anybody have any CC games they want to trade or trade for?

We have a Trader's Village very close to me in Houston, and I love going there. You can kill so much time at that place and find anything there.

Dallas is a great place to live, imo..I'm stuck in Dayton right now, but hope the situation changes in a couple months and I can get back to the metroplex.

From a gamer/movie watcher's perspective --

1) Fry's Electronics
2) Gamerush/Gamestop/EB all over
3) Netflix/BB have a distribution center for their online rental service IN Dallas. BB's HQ is Dallas.
4) Major over the air networks owned and operated by the networks themselves(except ABC), so you get the best possible HDTV PQ without multicasting.

I'm sure there are more things I can list...

Lol, yeah Trader's Village is fun but I don't really refer to it as "in" Dallas, basically because it's a long ass drive with traffic and all. But it's definitely fun to go in and kill time ;)

If any of you haven't checked out Movie Trading Company lately, check out my thread on it in the Bragging Rights forum. Still some decent stuff left out there.

Hi, another Dallas CAGer checking in. Anyway, since no one has mentioned it, Canton's First Monday is one of the biggest "mega" flea markets in the US. They did a documentary on it on the Discovery Channel or TLC or something. I've never been out there, but it's reasonably close (~2 hours). I hit up 3 Best Buys during their clearance (Plano, Walnut Hill, and Midway) and only got 3 games I wanted.

I'm in the dallas area too. Don't have anything to contribute yet. I've kinda slowed down on the cheapass shopping since I have a huge backlog and am busy with school.

The Mesquite BB had one copy of Growlanser for the sale that I grabbed.. of course, I went to the store the night before to hide it... :lol:

I think the Best Buy with the coolest video game section (of the ones I've seen, at any rate) is the one on 75, north of SMU. (crap, I think it's 75.. lol) It's a bit of a pain to get to coming from the north though, but whatever. It's got lounge chairs and an hdtv set up to play games on. :bouncy:

Hello, I live in north dallas. I checked out the following stores:

toys r us (lewisville)- cleaned them out of 3 galleons and some gba games. There are a few green tag games left.

circuit city/best buy (lewisville)- didn't have any games from the clearance that I found.

Im gonna hit up a few more different stores and will let u know if i find anything.
