Matteson CC had a bunch of stuff left and they were still pulling games for the sale. This was this past Tuesday. Of the ones I've been to (Matteson, Joliet, and Orland Park), that one was the stocked the best.

Is Naperville close enough to qualify for Chicago-ism...? It is a suburb...

it was probably in there because I'm a flaming homosexual.

Yes, they did! They had 2 MR 3's left and a few Project Snowblind for PS2. I can't remember if they had PS left for Xbox though. I think they did, but I could be mistaken. The MOnster Rancers were still on the shelf though, but the guy was pulling games while I was there.

Hey, I'm going to be in Chicago next week. So could anyone reccommend any good CC stores to hit/other good deals? (I'm going to be in a suburb though, Glynn Elyn I believe.)

Yeah, if I am out there again I will. That CC is not really around me. I just went there cause I drove by it on the way to a client. It might be a client I have to go back to so if I am out that way, I can pick them up for you. Unless you want to pay my gas for a special trip. ;)

If they don't have te Xbox version of PS, do you want PS2?

If anyone is interested. I went to Wolfs flea market in melrose park and they had a few people selling videogames. Some of the prices were outrages but a few very good deals to be found. Their is a guy I would say around the second isle selling speakers and videogames and he had a bunch of games for $2 to $10 on psone through gamecube games. Some of the $2 games were just the disk only. I was able to get motogp(ps2), demolition racer (dc), and silver (dc) for $6. He had a good selcetion of more games and their also a guy selling a ton of old game systems and games for decent prices.

right on, I've been meaning to catch some flea markets for the longest time. They used to have a HUGE sale in a parking garage in Evanston, years ago, but I don't know where that moved to.

I hear there's a big flea market at allstate arena...anyone been there?

There is a minimal entrance fee, something along the lines of a buck or two. However, you can usually find coupons in the Trib or Herald that grant free admission. I've only been to it twice and there wasn't much of anything. Those that had games seemed to be professional sellers, selling copies that were still wrapped at basically normal prices. Then again, its been a year or so since I've been there, so things may have changed.

I didnt see any on the Elston one and their was none on the skokie and harlem one. You can call them up and see if they have any in stock before driving their.

Also if you find a few I'll be interested in one also. Thanks.

I've been up here nine months now and have yet to see a great arcade.
Someone point me in the right direction! Specifics please, general area won't help much. And don't bother sending me to the Golf Mill mall. That arcade should be put out of it's misery.

I've also been to the Nickel City on Waukegan Rd. near the 90 overpass.

Maybe we could get a list going...

I seem to remember one downtown in a little mall, I think it was a Namco joint.
Of course, that was eight years ago...

"Great" is a difficult term to pin down when arcades are in such a decline already. One that still survives (at least when I last checked) is Diversions, located on McCormick between Devon and Lincoln (across the street from the relatively new Home Depot, and south of the Lincoln Village 1-6 theaters). They may even still have certain token specials or a deal for a few free tokens with a Lincoln Village (Loews) ticket stub. I actually still have some unused tokens in my possession. Perhaps I'll have to go check it out again sometime. Let me know if you need moral support.

I can't remember it being around 8 years ago, but there was a Namco arcade in Randhurst for a few years. Gone now, but it was pretty good for what it was.
