I have been dealing with this store since i was 16. ive never worked there nor do i plan to. i dont do drugs and i dont drink. they have always provided the best video game merch. in the area. better trade in prices than gamestop (who drops 15% if you want cash, god forbid anyone needs a little extra) and better sale prices than ebay ( ppl overprice on purpose). the only reason john b. had an issue was that he probably felt he "deserved" more. i highly recommend this shop unless you plan on driving out of pa to trade in your stuff.

John B. was spot on with his review of this establishment. Their employees are pale and their games are laced with pubes and grime. When you purchased used video games you ALWAYS run the risk of getting some grime and a few loose pubes (I call them stragglers) inside the case, but the Video Game Store really takes it a step too far. WORST STORE EVER.

On average, shop pays higher prices for used games than GameStop and sells used games lower. Best local spot to find previous generation gaming goods. Selection is decent. Condition of games and systems bought has always been top notch in my experience (I believe they test systems and clean/debuff games).

Purchased:
- about two dozen older and newer games
- a DSi, a PSP

Traded:
- countless older titles (SNES mostly), many rare (decent prices fetched in many cases, usually between 1/2 to full value in the case of some collectibles [Mega Man Soccer, and at least one other title that escapes me])
- a DS Lite

Employees are authentic and friendly, and transactions are handled with respect. Overall, a better venue for used game transactions, and the best local shop for all things classic gaming.

Thanks guys!

I've never worked at this place, but have purchased stuff from them over the years, and have never had problems with anything I've gotten there. Their prices are fair and their selection is pretty good when it comes to older stuff. Its not the prettiest place to look at, but when you're looking for an older game and dont want to pay eBay prices, then THIS is the place to go. Better than Wayne's World in Pittston and on par with Gametrader down in Lehigh Valley. I've gone there before and will go again!

The only thing thats shittier than this dump is the people working there. They are all pale douche bags that try to cheat you out of as much as possible. The only "people" that do business here are the various scumbags and vagabonds that infest the area, looking to cash in for more drug money. If you go to this dump, you essentially risk getting caught in a robbery / drug deal. Bottom line, sell your stuff on ebay ; youll make about 90% more than youd get here. They are unfair in their pricing and couldnt care less about their customers. **THIS PLACE IS TRASH** All of the previous reviews written for this establishment were written by the workers. Theres nothing quite like biting your tounge and buying an over priced used video game, only to take it home and open it to see grime and pubes on the inside cover. NOT F*CKING COOL

This store is the best place in NEPA to trade-in your games. They buy top-dollar for your games and systems and accept everything from Atari to Current-gen systems. They also sell their games at great prices, and are cleaned for you (unlike others that sell used games). Highly Recommended!

The Video Game Store carries a wide selection of video games and systems, cds, dvds, and much, much more. You can buys, sell, or trade here. They pay top dollar for your games, cds, dvds, etc. The prices are great. The staff here are helpful and friendly. So if you are in search for a game come on in, or if you have some lying around, come in and get money or new games.
