Masquerade games: 10 Mile Rd, Eastpointe.
The selection is old, and doesn't change often at all, but they'll usually do ordering for you.


Game Quest: Gratiot and 21 mile rd.
The store owner doesn't have much in the way of imports, but he has a reasonable selection of old used titles for most formats, and has no issue doing special orders for customers.

If anybody's looking for some Wiimotes or WiiPlay, the Meijer in Brighton has 1/2 dozen of each today, FYI.

No Wii consoles, though, they sold out this morning.

Man,

I remember when DIEHARD game stores were around..one in Waterford and one in Rochester, I played the Saturn there b4 it was released stateside. I was in awe of that wall of imports..man, good times. 8-)

I wish there was one closer. There used to be one on Canal and Garfield roads in Sterling Heights..what was that? Gamesource? Long gone too. :cry:

Just a heads up Quake 4 (360) $19 - 10% at the CUSA in Grand Rapids.

Didn't really see anything else that seemed like a good deal but I was just in and out real quick.

Two week old post, I know, but I know the store you're talking about - it's less than a mile from my house. I just noticed a few weeks ago that the GameSpot (as opposed to gamestop) is gone, and I wondered about Dougs. Maybe A to Z cards and comics put him out of business...?

My fiancee's brother used to work there. If you listened to the CAG cast a few weeks ago where there was the discussion about video game retailers you'll know why he closed shop. Min the owner moved down to Atlanta to open a gaming cafe.

As for Doug, he was an asshole who blatenly sold fan subs on VHS tapes we made himself. He and Min had a feud going on.

I was just at the CompUsa in Novi and it was a joke. I can't believe how much stuff they've sold at miniscule discounts. It was a total waste of time.

I just created an entire new topic for this but I probably should have just posted the question here (sorry):

does anyone know of any game stores in Michigan - really anywhere in the lower peninsula but preferably within 1-2 hours of Detroit - that still carry PS1 games, new or used?

I'd greatly appreciate the help!!!

Holy crap!! I didn't know that.. I gotta find that gaming cafe lol I am visiting family in atlanta next month and I wouldn't mind paying him a visit :) I really miss his gamestore (I bought my launch PS2 from there and he repaired a couple of my systems too).

Didn't know that about doug tho, I only bought DBZ and Gundam manga from him.. still got some of my newtype mags I got from him as well. but damn that sucks.

Off the top of my head, I can't think of any. If there are any independents in the area that I'm not aware of - which is a very real possibility, given that I live in Ann Arbor for most of the year now - then that'd be your best bet. Most of the GameStops and EBs have been sold out for some time, and GameCrazy and GameRush stores have a selection that's at least 90% sports games if they've got anything left at all.

Are there any independent game stores in the Metro Detroit area? The last one I remember was Playsource, but they've been gone for years.

ah, a voice of logic in the form of a walrus

I know of a couple comic book shops that also buy, sell & trade used games and systems. The website for one is www.clemslansing.com. Another is www.f4ahobbies.com (their site says nothing about videogames but they had used games and some imports last time I was there). I'm know there's at least one more place in Lansing because a friend of mine recently picked up a used NES and some games there, but don't remember what it was called.

Hmm...I go to UofM, so Lansing's a bit out of my neck of the woods. Ypsi, though, is definitely doable. I'll have to check that out next time I'm on campus. :D

Do they still run those tournaments? I'd probably get my ass handed to me in the first round, but I'd love to get involved if they're still doing them.

For those who are into import games (I think they might have a few non-imports too), Masquerade Games in Eastpointe is having an awesome sale on their video games. Games are ranging from 20% off - 60% off. Last Wednesday I picked up an import Dance Dance Revolution game (PS1) for about $13 and a Ranma 1/2 puzzle game (Super Famicom) at $24 instead of 32.
