Not quiote like that, no. I know of one that has a decent stock of old console games, but they are all crappy games. The place also has a nice stock of old consoles and accessories.
Do you know where Geneva is? It's in ashtabula county. The place is called World of Games. Don't make a special trip out to the store though, becuase you'll probably be dissapointed.

Pretty crazy stuff. I wouldn't mind having a bunch of games to access, but running a store? Not for me.

I dunno. Running lan-parties, maybe a side-cyber cafe, perhaps an arcade on top of that could be kinda cool. Make it into a gamers' central sort of place. Hold huge arcade tournaments long into the night, with music and food. It could be much more than just a video game store. Throw some hard to find anime and Japanese PC games in there too. Hell, have a controversial hentai section.

I certainly wouldn't call it playerz gamerz or whatever that guy named his shop, though. Geez. :X It'd also have to have a lot of room inside. There's a nearby hillbilly shop that'd make an excellent place to convert to something like this, tons of space.

Still, it's probably not for me either. Gamers just aren't like they used to be, and what I visualize as cool (in the first paragraph) would probably flop under this generation of gamers who'd rather sit on the internet and get fat and yell at each other under the veil of anonymity.

Ha. The veil of anonymity. I like that. Still, it is nice that nobody will know who you are. And yes, it's quite frequent. All sorts of swear words and such with messed up player names. Everybody always comes to the conclusion that everybody who plays games online is 13, though, which is kind of weird.

I wouldn't reccomend running a video game store. Its like a haunted mirage. It looks good to a thirsty man, but there are ghosts and demons out there.

On another note, I used to go to Geneva, OH a lot about 6 years ago, was that store there back then?
