Best Places to Buy Retro Games Online - Vote

by shwisha Tue Oct 12, 2010 1:36 pm

I want to work on a list of places to order retro games online. With your help we can get a good list.

Please rate each site you recommend from 1-5 (5 = best) if you've bought something from them before. I'll average out the scores, as more people give their scores.

Scoring: 5 = Great, 4 = Good, 3 = Average, 2 = OK, 1 = Poor

Visit the Custom Search Engine Here: http://abadox.net/shop-retro/ -includes the independent and import sites

Independent Sites:


Imports:

Homebrews:

Buy/Sell Forums:

Downloadable Sites:

The Obvious Choices:

Please recommend sites below... I'll add them to this list.

Great idea, Shwisha! A list like this is just what I've been looking for.

Also, I think it would be helpful if when people suggest online store that they say if they bought from them before and if they had a good experience or not.

I've ordered from jjgames numerous times. Always top notch customer care. eStarland I've used as well. They're slightly more $ than jjgames on average, but also highly recommended service.

For the Buy/Sell forums, GameTZ.com is a good place to find just about anything and everything you're looking for. Someone always seems to be trading at least one copy of any game.

http://consolegoods.co.uk/ -UK only but great selection including many imports and dirt cheap postage. However generally speaking you pay 5-10% over the games value.

Used it many times, guys really great at customer service.
