The Ultimate Retro Gaming Store Locator & Shop List (with Map)

Ultimate-Retro-Gaming-Store-Locator-and-Shop-ListSince 2011 RetroCollect has been gathering data on independent video game retailers who specialise in retro games, along with countless online stockists too. As of today we've finally put everything together and created the must have guide for retro gaming road trips - the ultimate list of retro gaming shops, all carefully plotted out on Google Maps.

As time goes on, finding retro games in the wild becomes harder and harder. The rise of eBay may have paved way to being able to buy anything at any time, but it has also meant that even fewer video games are being sold at car boot sales or in classified ads. Nevertheless there are many businesses out there that are fully aware that the retro gaming scene is hungry for rarities, bargains and all the classics... but finding them is never easy.

Over on the RetroCollect forums we asked around to find out whether or not our users knew of any fantastic stores around the world catering to our little niche. Needless to say the response - over several years - has been outstanding. With the data provided we're now able to present to you the most comprehensive and detailed list of retro gaming shops out there.

Went into Planet Games in Dorchester, Dorset today - they've got a fair amount of Xbox, PS2, Wii, MD and Master System stuff. They also have a decent turnover of retro consoles in the window...but the stuff goes really quickly! Worth checking out if you're in that neck of the UK. Top staff there too, they know their stuff.

Reloaded (Glasgow) is no longer open. Shut down about a year and a half ago :(

However, there is G-Force, on the same street - http://www.gforcegames.co.uk/

Game XChange is not online only. They are headquartered in Springdale, Arkansas USA. I use to live in the area and in would spend hours in that store. They have places all over in Harrison, Arkansas, Little Rock, Conway, Fayetteville, and up in Missouri. I have no clue just how many outlets they have but if you ever visit Arkansas definitely checkout the headquarters in Springdale....you will be amazed!

Other sites I use are Video 61, Collector's Cards and Games, and eStarland.
