Best Place To Buy A Video Game: GameStop
With several stores in Houston, GameStop nation makes it easy to buy or trade-in all the games, all the systems—while the online shop covers anything not found on site. The Nintendo dynasty is represented in full, as are the latest edition of PlayStation and Xbox. GameStop also features a hearty collectible section with toys, card games, and figurines. The Marvel Legends Series Infinity Gauntlet—heck yes. Star Wars and more—those baby Yoda T-shirts will stop you dead in your tracks. As this sport can skew pricey, “pre-owned” products like cords, video games, and controllers are an economic alternative and can be found throughout the store—not just on one sad shelf.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
