This was a wonderful store in the mid 1990's, back then it was a friendly atmosphere, much like how Funcoland was. Times have changed, now it's one of the worst stores I've ever been to. Which is strange because this store claims they're located in Costa Mesa, but somehow it says Santa Ana here.

I found out the hard way they sell broken games, and even if you show your receipt they refuse to refund you with a policy about no refunds for used games. What amazed me was they were willing to accept the broken game as a trade in, and when I pointed it out they told me to leave the store if I wasn't buying anything. I was waiting in the store for 30 minutes until the worker stopped playing on his computer and finally asked if I wanted anything in a rude manner, and I was the only customer in the store.

The selection is poor and tossed in boxes based on console, games are overpriced, you'll never know if any used games or consoles you purchase even work, they won't refund you, the workers pretend they're too busy to assist any customers, and if you mention anything they'll tell you to leave.

Buyer beware, compare prices online and from GameStop before going near this place.

This place is a joke used to come here all the time, but after the way I was treated the last time I was there I am never going back. Trying to save there business they also got all there family and friends to write 5 for 5 reviews on here and other reviewing places. The people that work here are scam artists they will buy an old game off you for 1 buck then go around and sell it for 100 dollars. I miss the good old days with honest video game store that you could trade in a game know your getting 20 or 30 bucks and then buy something from that store with the money you got on the trade. I urge people to not buy or sell to Games For Less as they will rip you off on everything even repairs and disk cleaning are insane they charge 10 dollars to refurbish a disk there are several other game stores that I know of: Game Place, Play N Trade and Video Game Geeks that will clean your disks for 2 or 3 bucks or free if you buy something........ Game Place also charged half the price to fix repairs then Games for Less does and they will finish the job that day and back up there work with a 90 day warranty) Games for Less has either no warranty or a skimpy 30 day warranty. I really hope this place goes out of business and that someone who actually cares about the customer who open a new video game store in there place

This store is definitely a paradise for game collectors! I come in almost every week and find another game I never expected to add to my collection (Without bidding on E-Bay...) The used games are usually priced cheaper then the best prices on E-Bay so you're usually getting a great deal AND your not paying shipping! The owner was also able to fix up several of my older and newer systems and was able to fix ALL of my non-working cartridges AND CDs! My PS2 stopped playing blue discs and PS1 discs and he was able to repair it for really cheap! I am also very pleased with the level of customer service this place has always had.

Pros: Repairs games & systems, huge selection, friendly atmosphere

Cons: None, I wish they were open later!

Well i wanted to get a copy of Modern Warfare 2 today. Came in after school and the guy told me to go back at 5:00pm for more copies. I went at 5:10 pm and asked him for it. He said "did you give me money in advance?"
I was like "you never said anything"
He said i am out of stock since 4:30 and you should have paid in advance.
Went out and was pretty mad at him.
He never said anything about paying in advance (and i wouldn't trust him.)'
I'm going to go and buy a copy on the street date tomorrow at Fry's Electronics.
Best store for everything concerning to electronics.
You might check this place if you want over priced old games.

Word of advice?
DITCH THIS STORE! GET A PREPAID DEBIT CARD AND BUY FROM EBAY!

P.S. I don't know who the guy was. Asian dude?
Ha. Funny how the store was empty the 2 times i visited. I wonder why.

Pros: Old games

Cons: Price, the owner (clerk)

I have been going to this store ever since I was about 10 years old and while I had a few fond memories of the store it has all gone down hill over the last few years. first off disregard those other reviews trying to sell this store as a great place to buy new and old school games, as there prices are way to expensive and they give you less cash or credit then any other store I know. they charge 5 to 10 dollars to repair disks, but do not offer refunds if the repair doesn't work on your game. It is true they have a lot of the older games, but all of them are overpriced or old sports games that no one wants. It is sad to see this store go down the tubes, but they just don't care about the customer anymore like they once did. I understand the economy is suffering, but this place hasn't even made an effort to change or better serve the customer. I myself am a hardcore old school gamer and would love to see a better variety and better pricing of the older games. another thing I don't like about this store is there is no bartering at this place. they will buy a game that is worth 50 dollars from a little kid and give him 1 dollar for it then try and sell it for 70 dollars and if you try and work out a price the best they will give you is no tax even though they got the game basically for free and even though I have been a return customer buying from this store for over 15 years and spent well over $ 10,000 at this store they still won't budge. If your looking for good deals on new games buy them on amazon and if your looking for good deals on used old school games buy them on eBay as they will be 5 times cheaper then this store(I bought zelda and donkey kong for super nintendo on ebay for less then 5 bucks they were selling it this store for 40 bucks.

Pros: best game selection and customer service

Cons: couldnt find one

If you are looking for old school, Nintendo, Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64 games look no more. This place is the Amazon for hard to find games in almost all systems. They have the best selection in fighter, RPG and best of all their prices are unbelievable.
Sales staff is very knowledgeable and alway recommend good games.
One last thing, If you want your system repaired (Playstaion) don't bother calling Sony, call Games For Less

First off i found this place back in 96 and i absolutely love it. It has every kind of game old school and the new generation. They always have good bargains and great deals! The service is great, far better than game stop where they don't know their right hand from their left. One more thing this is the only place where you can get your broken Sony, Nintendo Wii fixed.

Wow lady I've been going to games for less ever since it opened my dad serviced the owners car. Even when they didn't know me I always got good prices and excellent service. Your an idiot for freaking out about a disk the only way to clean it is to take the disk and buff it in a machine; guess what if your disk is dirty like everyone else disks the wax turns dark and gets all over his hands; I know I deal with wax myself.

GFL ROCKS! best way to find old games and games from around the world

I have never experienced service this horrible. I go in to get a very expensive classic game fixed and one of the workers puts his dusty fingers all over the disk. Ends up cursing at me while the owner just stands there. I have never been so offended in my life! Horrid place! AVOID AT ALL COSTS!

This is one of those places that you wish other game stores will have their prices. What bargains they carry! I wouldn't miss an opportunity to go here for a second. It's one of those cool places and I love the fact that they have so many playstation two games! Definitely worht the trip here! My friends and I at least go here once a month!
