The good thing about Mom and Pop places though is that you'll find things there you'd never find in a corporate game store. This place that used to be around here had a ROB and an entire section of Atari stuff. They even sold old ass kiosks for genesis and what not. But yes, they were rather pricey.
The mom & pop places here are really hit or miss. There's a DiscReplay, which I like, but most of their selection is movies. Then there's another place that blows hard. They have an awesome selection and lots of old school stuff but their prices are asinine ($80 for a disc only Albert Odyssey). Plus, they BS their reviews on Google. Every single negative review disappears and yet, the positives keep pouring in for things like "great prices", which I know is probably the owner inflating his score.
Seriously? They had vintage stuff forever, and when they slowly stopped carrying it, the "Classic Plastic" 3-for-$10 deals are what got me back into gaming as I filled in my budding collection some games that I had either missed or lost over time. They pricematched sale prices and trade-in values. I miss my GameCrazy stores, they beat GS any day of the week.
Classic plastic sucked for me since I only cared for PS1 games back then. I remember when they first started it, my brother got quite a few good deals some SNES and N64 games. But the selections with classic games were never that good around here.
But I never knew that they PM'd sales and trade in prices. In fact, I remember once asking if they would match GS's B2G1F sale (they had all 3 SMT games, back when they were rare, but priced at $60-70 each) and they said no.
