What would be a good name for a store that sells old video games?
My friend just bought a video game store, small, local, sells old stuff and some newer games as well. He's having a hard time naming it. What are your thoughts on a good name? Or what is the name of a video game store near you that you think is good. Just to give him some inspiration.
Since you describe this store as a brick-and-mortar shop, I assume the games are hard-copy - DVDs or CDs - as opposed to downloads, right? Also, are these new copies or used games? Both would make a bit of difference when choosing a name.
If they're ~used~ then a name that reflects that would make sense. Something like Play It Again, or Play It Forward might work. Or something like Second Go-Round or such.
On the other hand, if these are factory-sealed ~new~ "old games" then something like Old Gamers Depot, TimeWarp Games or Game Classics might work.
You pretty much have to use your imagination and be creative.
I wish you and your friend all the luck!
What about Retro Revival? Or...Power House? Working off of one of winmark's ideas, what about Round Two? Since it's playing the game again...you see...
Hm. Oh, what about "The Old School Shop" or "Old School Shop" or simply "Old School". Or, "Classic Collection" or...huh, I don't know why I'm stuck on alliteration with these names.
If he's selling retro stuff, he should also make sure he's got ways of testing it, or at least get the more common stuff so he can test that, like SNES, NES, Genesis, Xbox 360, etc. Or at least has the gear to clean it up really good. There's a place near to me named Game Play and I've bought games that were too darn scratched up or non-working that a simple play test in a PlayStation or Genesis would've prevented. Besides, saying that all your stuff is tested looks good, at least to me, since that says that for sure it works.
Good luck ^_^
The Gamer's Den or something like that. These types of stores can be very profitable.
how about vintage play or vintage games, lol this is the first names that popped into my head after reading your question
ddd retro. or classics revisited. any personal name seems more attractive, like sams or tamis.

Not just Nintendo, but any of those old consoles? I was just wondering if any of you ever pull them out and play them? Or do you use Emulators and roms?
