Review Date: October 5th, 2013Music. Movies. Games. Debt.Let me preface this by saying that I love what Slackers offers. They have a huge selection of video games and as a gamer, I love that. They also have a wide variety of stuff between movies, cds, anime, posters, figures, and whatever else you could be looking for.Now the negative aspect. What I do not like are their prices. I am thrifty, so when I am shopping used video game stores, one tends to get a general idea/feel for what things should be priced at. Slackers tends to price everything above Market Value. Whether they do it because it is a college town or because it is a bit of a nicer area… it seems to be working for them. I love swinging by when I visit my friends in the area, but I hardly ever purchase anything since I can find it for a lot cheaper where I live.Any who, they really do offer a large selection of everything. I love the fact that most of their SNES-era games have boxes on the shelves. Nostalgia kicks in looking at some old gaming boxes. The games don’t come with the boxes, as they are store displays. But still cool to see! I will try and snap a few photos the next time I go and update this post with them.It’s a great place to scratch almost any nerdy itch you have, but it does come with a premium price. If you are in the area and are looking for something a bit cheaper on the video game side of things., check out Grumpy Bob’s Emporium a few miles away. If you need more of a geek fix (board games, figures, comics), you can pop over to Heroic Adventures. It is literally a 2 minute drive from Slackers.
I never thought I'd be typing up what I'm about to type, so buckle up because you're in for a wild ride.I've never been a real big fan of Slackers Music Movies Games and it mostly had to do with customer experience a long time ago. That, and the prices on some of the games they had on offer were a bit high in price. However, I will say the prices now are mostly reasonable and they have things that I would have to order online otherwise. And they treat my sons very well when they come in with me.
This place is keeping nerd culture alive. Reasonable prices for video games, comic books, cds, movies, and posters. The staff are fun to talk to and awesome
They are alright with the selection they have but the stock never moves or changes and they do not test the vintage games. I have bought defective games from them multiple times, which they will only offer you store credit as a refund. Have them test your games before you buy.
Cool store, except we couldn't get in to buy what we searched 2 other stores for, because it was raining so they closed hours early...even after it stopped raining 2hrs before they closed.
