Any old timers find dimple records to be the most worthless place for retro games? The place has always been bad because of the employees besides the fact that they all have a stick up there ass. Dimple allows employees to take games before they have even been traded in they let them place holds on games while they are still in the process of the trade in.
5 Years ago it was amazing I got finds EVERY TIME i went there for retro games, now everyone has a smart phone and is a re-seller same with the employees. Sucks...
Same experience here with Dimples.
Their employees are extremely rude (the few times I have actually interacted with them). Its like you're bugging them to do their jobs.

If you need controllers and accessories they still have an amazing selection.
It's just i wouldn't go out of my way to go there anymore, back in 2004 - 07 i found stuff there hand over fist. Sega Saturn, boxed nes games on the regular etc... 2008 i noticed the employyes and the customers starting to pick up on retro trends. and the last 3 years it's basiclly been a joke with youtube blowing up retro gaming and everyone having a smart phone to go on ebay with.
Dimple from 04 - 07 were the golden years. I have tons of rare games that i paid "dimple prices" for.
Bubble Bobble 2, Snatcher for sega cd, tons of boxed snes games such as harvest moon, FF3 etc... Dragon Force for the saturn, turbo graphx 16 games etc... that all basically stopped the last few years. and started really getting scarce in around 08. I haven't even seen a TG16 or Sega CD game there in years.
With all that said i still do find stuff there from time to time. But the dimple from years ago is gone. But if you're in the area doesn't hurt to stop in, but taking drives out to elk grove or roseville or when they had that davis store that's a waste of time now cause the chances of finding something are slim.

My favorite Dimple experience was a few months ago and they had a copy of NBA LIVE '06 on PS3 for $59.99.

Agreed. Every once in a while you get lucky, but it's incredibly rare now.
Basiclly every single employee takes games now, 5 years ago it would be like 3 random employess now it's every single one.
