Greenville here. I can also vouch for Video Games Cavern. Great retro section. Too bad Rhino Games across the street is going to GameStop. I'll visit today. Probably my last visit until they vanish into the corporate vacuum.

Anderson, SC over here (near Greenville). I used to frequent Rhino and the Game Cavern, though my retro collection is pretty much done so I don't head that way much any more. The Best Buy in Anderson frequently has a clearance table set up that is actually quite good, though the prices aren't always marked down that much. I have saved at least 10 dollars on a number of pick-ups. Other than that, the well is pretty dry.

Everyone from the upstate should get together and have a huge Halo lan party.

That would rock.

Did not realize this thread existed. Pimp was close on where I live. Ridgeway SC here. I try to keep up with deals in northeast Columbia. Kinda lame as of late. To many CAGs around I think. :razz:

God willing I'll be moving down here for the summer and non-school year, somewhere near Charlotte. How's the shopping, recreation (arcades =D), and fun stuff around here you hopefully-soon-to-be-fellow-South-Carolina-CAG-er's?

Just curious, who was the selfish one to hoard the games/cleanout the Simpsonville GR?

Thx for leaving everyone else games, no need to buy every copy of Saints Row


What was the deal there? Anyway, yeah, it's kinda unfair that people do that. I especially felt screwed over during the Rhino Games takeover by Gamestop. Also, during last years Circuit City deal. Luckly, i am walking distance from a Gamecrazy (and a Blockbuster, but they dont have enough retro stuff to keep me interested), so if theres any deals, i'll just pick up what i want, and leave the rest to the other CAG's.

There is a Gamecrazy in Greenville?? Where?? The only place I know of for Retro stuff is the Game Cavern since Rhino closed down. The Game Cavern is cool but their methods are a little archaic and most of the good stuff is kept in the back so you have to ask for it. For example, I had to wait 15 minutes just for a copy of Sunset Riders on the SNES!

The Greenville Rhino definately got cleaned out, however I was able to pick up about 40 games at the Lexington, SC store. Not crap ones either, we are talking:

Excitebike
Eternal Champions
Super Turrican (SNES)
Bio Hazard Battle
Strider (on NES and Sega)
and many more...

Sorry just had to brag a little. Anyway, I do think it is a little unfair that people (especially employees) get to horde things, but when you consider that their job really kinda sucks it is one of the few perks they get. I work at Best Buy and I will gladly admit to getting some games for myself. Before you yell, if you could pass up Suikoden IV for $1.99 then you are fricking crazy.

Regardless, if you haven't checked out the Game Cavern it's at least worth a look see, I was able to pick up Super Metroid, Contra III, Castlevania IV, and a ton of other fun Super Nintendo stuff last time I was there. Generally their prices are lower than what you would find on Amazon or at pre-merger Rhino stores. A lot of people trade there so they get a lot of good stuff in.

Well anyway, holler!

Yeah, there's a gamecrazy in alot of those small shopping districts. The closest one i've seen is right across the street from where i live, which is in Pelham Road. As a matter of fact, i think there are two of them. One near China Wok, and the other in a Publix next to Hollywood Video. Also, where is Game Cavern located? I'm interested in checking it out. Also, do they have games in Mint condition by any chance?

If they're talking about Video Game Cavern, it's on Wade Hampton Blvd (Hwy 29) in Taylors, SC in a little shopping center across the Street from the Taylors Wal-Mart and Bi-Lo. Not sure of the condition of their stuff (haven't bought a lot there), but they usually have some harder to find stuff, and they also usually have slightly better prices on used games than the chain stores.

My only complaint is that, since they’re an indie retailer, they may or may not have your preferred new release the week of launch. On the plus side, they give excellent trade-in credit.

I like SC just fine. Since I was born in Easley, live in Spartanburg, and work in Greenville; it’s all I’ve ever known, so I reckon I have nothing to compare it to. ;)

Seneca, SC here - just down the road from Clemson, although I shop around everywhere from Ga on up to the Greenville area.

I just called the Video Game Cavern to see how much they would give me for my original DS (looking to finally upgrade), and would you like to guess how much they would give me for the system, stylus, and charger? Would ya?

They give $20 in store credit, and $10 in cash! That's even worse that GameStop I think, but don't quote me on that one. They're good people though most of the time. If any of you ever go in Anderson, they also have a "store" at the Anderson Jockey Lot that's open on Saturday and Sunday, early all the way until people usually start to leave the JL.

Sometime this year a new indie game store opened up in Powdersville, Darkside Games. I've never been, I don't know anything about it, but here's a MySpace page for it:

I think I've been to the Video Game Cavern once or twice, but it's possible I'm thinking of a store that has since closed down. But yeah, I've dealt with them a lot at the Jockey Lot.

If you check out that store in Powersville let me know what you think, drop me a line on here or AIM or something.

Do any of you remember that store that used to be in Greenville on Woodruff Rd.? Going from the Hollywood 20 towards the area where Best Buy and everything is now, the store was down the road on the right, in a little shopping center. It was very easy to miss unless you knew it was there. They had all kinds of games, and especially dealt with imports. It's been a while ago though. That's where I bought a few of my Dreamcast imports back in the day. It was a pretty interesting store to check out.
