While Gamefellas could've tanked along with the Pokémon craze or the bizarre shifts and twists of its main location at the Northcross Mall, they didn't.

They were the first and most thorough at stocking Pokémon stuff a few years back, carrying not just the very limited American releases but also dedicating an entire store space to the phenomenon. Now, they are morphing into a DVD locus, while continuing to do what they've always done best: stock an impossible selection of video games and platforms - including outdated relics like Atari and the original Nintendo. Plus their stock of vid accessories is unparalleled. You need Dance Dance Revolution pads? Come here.
