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:


They just recently changed that area but I still don't like the management there and they used to have an awesome game selection at that particular store but they seem to have thinned it out a lot since they went to that new floor plan.


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


why all the Galleons?? Are they worth something somwhere?

Gamerush gives you $19 each for them. Considering you could get them for less than $7 each last week, it was a really good deal. TRU on 75 and Walnut Hill still has some, I believe.

The Trader's Village in Grand Prairie is awesome. It's been a while since I've been out there, but I've found good stuff out there before, including a ton of cart-only NES games.

If anyone happens to find a Metroid GC bundle or a PS1 screen at a Toys R Us and doesn't need it, I'd very much appreciate if you could pick one up for me:)

damn, I didn't know that. I bought one a few weeks back for $10 at TRU. I may have to check for more. Thanks

just checking in...

i'm in grapevine, and i work in fort worth (closer to arlington honestly) so i stop by a lot of stores in that mid-cities-ish area... don't have a ps2 or xbox, and i've been focused on GBA and DS lately... i'd be happy to help out other DFWers when i can...

and by the way, for those thinking about heading to canton for video game stuff, don't bother... yes, it's flea market style shopping, but it's known for an seems to always focus on arts and crafts and furniture... there isn't much in the way of "technology" out there, especially video games. i went there a few months ago, hoping to find some rarities, and all i came away with was taffy. it was good taffy, but it's just not the same...

Grapevine - you're lucky in that you have the only EB in the Dallas area that carries used NES and SNES games. All the other ones ship and games they get to the Grapevine Mills mall :(

I'd go by there all the time to check it out if I lived closer, but the drive isn't worth it with the price of gas right now.

Just a heads up the toys r us in frisco has like 50 games, most of them duplicates and almost all of them are green tagged $19.99 or higher. Some games are dbz sagas, fifa 2004, the thief (xbox), dead mans hand (xbox). there is nothing really good left.

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 ;)


its only 30 minutes from Downtown.

Darn, that's really too bad about Canton. My wife has been wanting to go, so I figured it was a good opportunity to do some poking aroud for games. But... mmm, taffy.

Canton is definately not good for snagging games. Arts, crafts, and animals are primarily what you will find out there. Not worth the two hour drive if you are looking for games (though it is worth going if you have never been non game wise)

i'd be happy to keep an eye out for NES or SNES games, if there's particular ones that you're looking for...

but honestly, everytime i flip through them, there's usually nothing worth picking up. it's generally the same old titles you'd find anywhere... marios, tetris, lots of licensed games... they had kid icarus once, but it's since been sold. they keep their "best" titles behind glass with the used gba games. right now, i believe they're highlighting donkey kong country for SNES. not exactly rare or expensive...

but yeah, if there's something you've been searching for, let me know and i'll check when i go in.

Well, I do enjoy some slightly lesser-known titles. For example, I was looking for Faxanadu, Duck Tales, and Zoda's Revenge. But, I managed to find all those at a used game shop in Waco (actually the outlets near there) of all places, on my way back from San Antonio. I'll let you know if I think of any others :)

checked grapevine mills today... they didn't have much...

NES
dragon warrior (2 copies)

SNES
donkey kong country
donkey kong country 3
super scope 6 (2 copies)

i asked what was going on, cause there was just a bunch of other titles out for both systems last tuesday... and the clerk said they pulled them all last friday to get ready for a larger selection during the holidays. those few games that were out were "recent trade-ins" that couldn't get sent back in time. as far as he understands, all EBgames stores sent their NES/SNES/N64/GB/GBC titles back to the main warehouse, and titles will get "re-shuffled and re-shipped" to different stores in order to give each location a larger selection. i wouldn't think that EBgames really cares this much about older titles. perhaps there's some sort of classic games sale coming up we don't know about. or perhaps he was just talking shit. we'll see later on i guess. regardless, there was little in the way of classic nintendo titles.

Are any of you planning on getting a 360?? I am but I didn't pre-order, so I was wondering where the best place would be to get one on launch. If anybody works at BestBuy, do you have any info on how they will be selling their stock and what time they will start selling them?

You can still guarantee a copy... by camping out now!! Make sure you don't accidentally camp somewhere that requires you to buy a bunch of crap with it.

Sounds good, but a lot of times they limit it to one per person. Maybe you can get an unsuspecting friend (uninterested in xbox 360) or significant other to camp out with you. Hehe.
