So I went to last week, the new Five Below store in the Winston Plaza at Melrose Park, IL. Among the games there are Bakugan for NDS, Naruto Shippuden Clash of the Ninja 3 for Wii and Every Extend Extra for PSP. There are other games but those 3 are the better games in my opinion. So all games are $5.00, which are a huge steal, especially when you are looking how great the store is like. There are other stuff there but that's your decision.

I picked up Parappa the Rapper (psp), innocent life: a futrustic harvest moon (psp), syphon filter: dark mirror (psp) and a few others a couple weeks ago. selection seems to vary heavily between stores, but I always check in when I'm nearby.

Nice find, but I don't have any in my area :(

I wish there was more to your story.. like you happened to discover it because an employee gave you a wink and a nudge then told you 'shhh' as they pointed you in the right direction.

Just stopped at one on vacation, picked up a few stylus pens for $5 each and some Griffin/InCase cases for my iPod Touch. Looked at the games, but nothing really interested me. They also had a few 3DS accessories there.

Around the holiday times they'll sell 360/PS3/Wii games. I remember last year they had about 5 or 6 different titles for $5 each.

I know I'll get these names wrong...At the Crossroads store in Cary NC, I saw Parappa the Rapper and Arthur M.'s Mercury Meltdown combo pack for the PSP. I didn't look at the other console games, but they have a huge selection of cheap headphones and gaming accessories.

5 Below also has a decent selection of DVDs.

I have never been in one of those stores, didn't know they had games. I'll check the Bloomingdale one out. Thanks OP.

Yea, Five Below is awesome. I have purchased several PSP/PS2/DS games for myself and my son.

I got Chulip there, which is pretty rare although not expensive. Highly recommend that game for 5 bucks if you want to play something incredibly strange, unique, and disturbing. Not good, but definitely those, lol.

They're springing up around me in MD/PA like crazy recently. I've picked up a few goodies like Chulip and the Aqua Teen game, and also some accessory bundles like the Twilight Princess and Phantom Hourglass lunchbox sets. Never hurts to check there.

They have one at Gravois Bluffs in Fenton, Missouri. Additional games of note include Sly Cooper and Sly 3. They also have $5 licensed Nintendo shirts, Mario figures and Nintendo/Sega pull cars.

And I'm willing to bet that all of you who find decent games at your 5 Below are also the same people that have Big Lots in the area that sell real games, too, amiright?

The 5 Below 40mins from me opened up 2 years ago and the three times I've gone in there I walk out with nothing but a laugh at the off-branded PS2 games or the knock-off iPad docks that they sell. There is nothing of any interest at all in my store, your stores must be golden meccas by comparison.

*waves grumbly old man cane at the kids in the front yard* BAH!

I hit up my local one in central PA from time to time. I think the only game I got there though was THUG for the OG XBox (Platinum Hits) for my bro. For a good while around opening (which was 2007 I wanna say) they were carrying a good bit of XBox and GBA games and then would get DS/360/Wii games for the random holiday, etc. sales.

I remember when they got Dark Sector and an older NBA 2K, but I had the former and no interest in the latter.

Oh, and my sister got a Yoshi shirt there.

Not sure if they're still there, but the Five Below at the Brickyard in Chicago, IL, had quite a few copies of Monster Tale for $5. Apparently they also had NES controllers with a USB end to use with a pc. Those I haven't personally seen, but I want one.

Well, I did put up the correct forum in the deals section since although it's not like with the other stores (Best Buy, Target, etc.) where you have either weekly sales or they would wait a very long time until they put up for discount. Take for example the Best Buy in Village Crossing at Skokie, IL. They have an area where they put up games, accessories, etc. and they heavily discount. I am also amazed that my forum has gained over 2,000 views and it has been close to 18 hours passed since I started this forum. Let us make it 5,000 views guys and I would love you all for making this forum popular!

Kind of off topic, but if you go to five below, you must try these:

Seriously, try them, they are quite possibly the best thing ever, you will become addicted, and five below is the only national place i know that carries them.

The brickyard store is the one I visit after I check out the gamestop next store.

TOTAL RIPOFF. My local Best Buy sold that game for $1.00 a piece a few years ago.
