    One more for the Street Fighter nerds -- SF4 "fight school" every Sunday & Thurs, 7pm, $10 buy in. #BYOController Solid spot to get back up to speed if, say, you plan on entering a tournament soon.

    A haven for retro gamers. Has all the charm of a stoner's dorm room. A little overpriced but worth stopping in just for the nostalgic head rush. And be sure to pray before the life size Lara Croft.

    Okay, so the Street Fighter 2 Turbo machine is *signed by* Justin Wong -- SF legend and runner up World Champion. (Google "Diago Parry" or "Evo 37" for whole story)

    This place is great! Good selection of old school games with plenty of new stuff too. Staff is as friendly as you need them to be. Has gotten some tough reviews on Yelp but I've had great experiences.

    Not only is there a coin-op SF2 Champion Edition machine in the front, but I wandered in late one night and there were 15 dudes sitting around playing SF4 on Xbox in the back. This place is legit.

    Excellent place to hang if you don’t have a girlfriend. Also possibly the largest collection of Sega CD games in one location in 2017

    They fixed my Atari 2600 for cheaper then I could find the part, and real fast. I also buy DS, GBA games and cheap DVDs. They can fix any gaming console from any era, and they don't charge allot.

    Some good games for sure but I definitely saw some GBA bootlegs which kinda sucks to see them willingly sell. Place could stand to be a little brighter and friendlier too.

    Awesome selection. Cheaper than videogames NYC around the corner. Marcus is the man.

    I still have my Atari 2600 and the games. I haven't been there yet, does anyone know how much the Atari 2600 games go for? I'm interested in buying some.

    Incredibly rude staff! They are actively offensive, sneering and rolling their eyes at you and lecturing you. Dingy, unclean facility. Poorly laid-out, with safety hazards.

    The place has moved and they have not even changed their address. Stuff was very unfriendly and unprofessional.
