Hyper Game is where you go in the Los Angeles area when you want to find Japanese Imports, especially for Sony and Nintendo systems both new and old, including the latest DS and PSP games. If you're going there to look for domestic games, you're better off trying a Fry's or Best Buy, because their specialty is imports. YES, the games are pricy, but no more pricy than any Japanese brand new imported game *would* be. I've seen import shops in other states that will seriously jack up the prices, and Hyper Game is very reasonable by comparison, and the best import shop in the area. Yeah, you might be able to find something for cheaper online by way of China, though after shipping costs, it doesn't always turn out to be such a big difference in price. What you're paying extra for here is the convenience of taking the game home with you right then and there. That's just business, take it or leave it.
The staff is friendly and incredibly helpful when you're trying to track something down and they even carry a number of accessories that go with certain games you wouldn't normally be able to just find and take home with you (ie: a controller for the popular Densha GO! train simulator that looks like a real train control!).
The only drawback to the place is the location. It's in a part of Los Angeles notoriously difficult to get to (unless you live nearby), so call and make sure they have the game you want before you go. There's an assortment of great Japanese shops and restaurants around, so it's worth the trip if you're a Japanese culture buff in general.

PROS: Extensive selection of new and used Japanese imports.
CONS: Difficult location to get to through traffic on the 405 or 10 fwys.

If you're looking for imported Japanese games, this is the place to go. Hyper Games has a hip feel, while providing the latest Japanese video game imports. Although prices are higher than usual due to them being imported, they also offer a wide selection of used games for cheaper prices. Non-imported, American games are also available!

PROS: Friendly, has hard-to-find imported Japanese games
CONS:

Video game store specializing in imported games and systems. Selection is adequate, but prices are very, very high. If you have to get a game before it is out in the united states, this would be the store to go to, but high prices deter me from buying. Staff is rather indifferent to customers as well.
