Trade in the sterilized, brightly lit game store for the stained, musty confines of a collector's paradise. Game Trader is full of gaming oddities like Japanese arcades and peripherals. Foreign titles are commonplace among stacks of American games, which are neatly sorted by region and system. Used copies of fresh games line the shelves leading to the back counter, and these often undercut the prices of corporate stores such as GameStop. Be prepared to dish out dough for any contents in the collectors' case, but don't be bashful about bargain shopping. The cramped dimensions of the store's narrow space hide piles of loose Nintendo and Sega carts at a discount, among supplies of newer, more popular wares.
