Had skepticism about this place but decided to try it out. I did not like the street very sketchy! soup kitchen and a bar next to this place!I didn't feel comfortable w my children on this street at all but had to go in because my kids were excited. Nothing special inside guy was rude to me and I really didnt get much for my money. Its my last visit for sure but judge for yourself. I think the street is something straight out of Harlem. Check the sex offenders list too i failed to do so i wouldn't be shocked.

The only thing that stops me from going to Jiggawatt's Gaming on a weekly basis is the fact that I live too far away during the college semester. When back on break, I always stop by when I can. I have yet to meet an unfriendly person in the store and I had the pleasure to be one of the first to walk into the fine establishment. With high speed internet, good customer service, and prices you cannot beat, there are not many downsides. Such a great place for any adolescent or adult that has a love for gaming.

I started coming into the store late December of last year. My first experience inside was awesome. As previously mentioned, I was offered a tour by one of the owners, and gladly accepted. He gave me a nice rundown of the offers they had and what I could do.

The atmosphere is quite the opposite of chaotic, actually, its a very calm place for kids (and adults alike, you'd be surprised) to relax and enjoy some games. And it isnt just about the games, the social atmosphere fostered really helps kids to find new people to talk to, and make friends.

When I first started reading some of the reviews, I honestly couldn't believe what was put on here. I've never seen a place like this where kids can go and have fun, and I don't know why anyone would ever say things like they have about such a fun place to be and hang out.

Brought my kid here the other day for a birthday party and I have to say this place is truly one of a kind. I was originally just planning on dropping him off for a few hours, but decided to stay and get a feel for the place.

The staff was kind and accommodating, and knew so much about the games and the systems and were always willing to help. (The store's owner even hopped onto the games now and then to help the kids beat some of the harder parts.) They were friendly and talkative and really made you feel comfortable.

Contrary to the some of the previous reviewers, the kids in the store were NOT out of control but in fact very well-behaved and all seemed to be having a great time.

I can see how easy it is to come online and trash a small business in a small town, but people don't take enough time to rave about the positive things these businesses do for people. The people who run these businesses work a lot harder than most people and struggle to get by just the same, sometimes worse. These guys are great, they are providing the kids in the area with a great place to hang out and keep them out of trouble. How can you bash that?

I actually stopped by this location the other day after grabbing some food down the street. Being a Glens Falls Native for over 30 years I was amazed to see something like this. I agree with the location (-1 star), however that is the only thing I agree with the other reviews.

I was greeted by one of the owners who actually gave me a full tour of the store and why they started this business in the first place. Being that my kids go to Glens Falls and have very few options for a social atmosphere, I could not believe someone had the heart to put this store in this city.

From a business point of view, I felt the prices were extremely low ($20.00 for 12 hours of playing for my son). I am not a gamer myself, but my son was ecstatic at their collection and I actually had to pick him and his friends up at midnight (on a Saturday night).

For what it's worth, the internet is a great place to bash a company, but I couldn't believe the reviews on here. I would recommend actually stepping foot into this store and seeing for yourself what a family tried to do for a community. And as for the two reviewers that posted before me, it's no wonder no one else has tried to do anything for your children and I'll be surprised if we ever see another one.

Sincerely,

Eric L.

Agree with above reviewer!!! I brought my kids in to see what it was all about and the service was rude and the kids we out of control. I was going to let them play Xbox but I was not comfortable with my kids being there. I also don't see the sense of paying to play videogames when the damn Xbox online only costs 50 bucks a year. If you don't care about kids being in a chaotic store on a very sketchy street then I guess this is the place for you!

The place is not family oriented like it said. The kids in there are wild and out of control. The staff is pushy for sales. The staff are also sometimes inappropriate with the kids (language and attitude) The used merchandise for sale is sketchy, seems like it could be stolen merchandise from previous owners (its consignment style). Not impressive there new selection sucks not the same atmosphere of a real game store. My kids liked it but I would never allow them to be around those people again..beware
