Video games are like life: a bewildering maze filled with challenges, where the only way to get ahead is to have your pet dinosaur eat the boss. Take a break from reality with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get one used video game at GamesPlus (up to a $15 value). This Groupon is valid only for games priced at $15 or less, though customers can purchase multiple games if their combined value does not exceed $15. Redeem your Groupon at any of GamesPlus’s six locations.
A vast selection of titles for classic and contemporary consoles line the shelves as guests make a game of searching out the rarest RPGs and side scrollers to add to their collections. GamesPlus stores have acquired 80% of their merchandise via trade-ins and Dance Dance Revolution break-dance battles, so visiting gamers can spend hours making an inventory of the secondhand videogames they have yet to conquer. Players can release pent-up angst on alien overlords in the Xbox hit Halo or tone the contours of their cerebral cortices with Brain Age for the Nintendo DS. The GamesPlus Classic section takes gamers back to the 8-bit days of yesteryear, when flying raccoon suits were in vogue and washing one’s hands meant contending with carnivorous vegetation in the sink. An inventory-tracking system that covers nearby GamesPlus stores will help customers track down the titles they are looking for with all the speed of a supersonic hedgehog.
