Let's go Game Hunting at 'World 8' Video Game Store in LA

I was in LA not too long ago. When I was in town I decided to stop by a local game shop, World 8, and do a little shopping. Here’s what it’s like inside.

  3. CHUBZ_BE_GAMING on January 19, 2023 at 3:22 am

    Your in town for socalretrogamingexpo???

  4. Leeartlee on January 19, 2023 at 3:22 am

    Boomers Adventure!! That’s the name of that game. One of the games I owned growing up that I actually thought held up pretty well. Very underrated.

  5. Andres F on January 19, 2023 at 3:25 am

    Its insane seeing Super Mario 2 going for $100+…Especially since NES emulators have existed since the late 90s….I have 30 great PS2 titles and a few PS1 games…I have trouble deciding whether to keep them longer or to sell them for whatever price I can get…

  6. Curtis Linden on January 19, 2023 at 3:26 am

    I live 8 blocks from this place!! Unreal John Riggs in Koreatown 🤝

    I wonder how many of us guys will be looking down at our gaming bods after seeing jacked Tommy. XD I sure did! Umm….yeah, I should get off the couch.

  9. Zach Ames on January 19, 2023 at 3:33 am

    U gotta hit up game dude next time you’re in town.

  10. Ehouse33 Householder on January 19, 2023 at 3:36 am

    WTF WHY ARE THESE GAMES SO EXPENSIVE!?!?

  11. W. L on January 19, 2023 at 3:37 am

    People complain about ebay prices, but the prices on those games are higher than ebay prices.

  12. RedmondGAMΞR on January 19, 2023 at 3:39 am

    Pretty sure I ran into both you and Curtis at the last PGRE (passing convos). Riggs was sporting an awesome Robotnik costume. Definitely looking forward to the next PGRE. Cool store!

  13. KaraokeHammick on January 19, 2023 at 3:39 am

    TOURMAMENTS?

  14. Jodeth on January 19, 2023 at 3:40 am

    Man I wanna take a trip to LA.

  15. Hotsaucedeluxe on January 19, 2023 at 3:41 am

    Was that $1000 for a CIB super punch out? Thats steep.

  16. David Brinkman on January 19, 2023 at 3:41 am

    Sick store

  17. коля асланишвили on January 19, 2023 at 3:42 am

  18. ByteJunkie 64 on January 19, 2023 at 3:43 am

    Man, I remember playing Pinbot in 2nd grade.

  19. Mr. C in LV on January 19, 2023 at 3:45 am

    Wow! I used to live within walking distance of that place. Years ago. Cool to see they are still around.

  20. Mario Valencia on January 19, 2023 at 3:45 am

    I went to World 8 four years ago and got fascinated for the place. But man, those Game Boy games are super expensive now.

  21. Neil Thomas on January 19, 2023 at 3:47 am

    There would be more Master System games at a British store.

  22. TrapHouse Gamer on January 19, 2023 at 3:48 am

    I can’t believe I liv in la and have yet to visit this place

  23. Synthetic Maniac on January 19, 2023 at 3:48 am

    I feel like every one of John’s videos can be summed up by "Come for the old-school video games, stay for the food."

  24. Travis Vaughan on January 19, 2023 at 3:50 am

    Wow this store looks awesome. I’m so glad I found your channel. Can’t stop watching your videos. I especially like the ones where you rank retro games in groups. I was (and still am) the biggest gaming nerd I knew back in the day and have experienced so much nostalgia through your vids. I didn’t know other people were as into it as I was at the time but there definitely were apparently. Thanks for bringing back good memories and keep it up man I love it!

  25. HECTOR MONTALVO on January 19, 2023 at 3:50 am

    Man over here in Rocherter, NY there used to be a chain of retro stores called Game Craze but they ALL closed down like 3 or 4 years ago. So now there’s no way to get retro games here. And I don’t trust on-line stores or sellers in general. You’re lucky and blessed to live in the area where you live. That Tetris 2 was sweet. If I would have been there I would have gone crazy buying games. Thanks for sharing this store visit John it could have been double the time long but it’s O.K.!👍

  26. Ace Carrera on January 19, 2023 at 3:52 am

    After years of watching Game Sack, John finally got a GREENDOG! copy.

  27. Jimmy Thomas on January 19, 2023 at 3:52 am

    Y0!

  28. Jebron Lames on January 19, 2023 at 3:53 am

    It makes me so sick seeing the prices of all the games I just gave away in the past!

  29. DW99 on January 19, 2023 at 3:53 am

    I was at 8-2 it was awesome

  30. Walter Lester on January 19, 2023 at 3:54 am

    Can I tell you your friend looks a lot like Kevin James from King of Queens if he was buff.

  31. Aru Nca on January 19, 2023 at 3:56 am

    Check out “ Book-off” while here in LA.

  32. ramon garcia on January 19, 2023 at 3:57 am

  33. Joe Lawler on January 19, 2023 at 3:57 am

    Spin it till you win it.

  34. Jubei on January 19, 2023 at 3:58 am

    Yeah Yeah yeah!!!Yeah!!!! Riggs in the Building!!!!! World 8. One of my fav spots when I lived in LA!!! So awesome. Many Many classics tourneys went down there! Love it. If you’re a gamer and in LA, this should be a top destination.

    Side note: if you love what arcades used to be likenin the 90s and 00s, then check out: EightyTwo, the best arcade in LA. And If you want another game store to satisfy your gaming appetite, check out GameDude!

  37. Jerry Pequeno on January 19, 2023 at 4:03 am

    Hello Mr. Riggs, would you be able to advice me where I could find stores like this in US that might still seem boxed NES catridges?

  38. JohnRiggs on January 19, 2023 at 4:03 am

    If you like these types of videos, I have a whole playlist of me attending other game stores and conventions – https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLsOTz-tlvayLQkqa6pY-_qgfeNP9-OCme

  39. J N on January 19, 2023 at 4:04 am

    Oh wow I remember passing by this places on the way to college. I always wanted to go but never did.

  40. Forced Feedback Classic Game Reviews on January 19, 2023 at 4:05 am

    That Legend of the River King right at the beginning. Been looking for a copy of that for a long time, myself.

  41. Feed me Chicken on January 19, 2023 at 4:08 am

    What made that super punch out so special for nearly a thousand dollars? I’m very intrigued with the why.

  42. Oxi Genial on January 19, 2023 at 4:09 am

    Greendog is such a fun game,not perfect and a little bit frustating sometimes,but I really love the music,the art and the atmosphere of it!

  43. Yone on January 19, 2023 at 4:09 am

    This place looks really overpriced…

  44. mcorleonep on January 19, 2023 at 4:10 am

    I wish we had stores like that around here. The retro-gaming community is pretty much non-existent here in SW Florida…

  45. Beau Belgard on January 19, 2023 at 4:10 am

    That sealed Super Punch Out 😲

  46. Moonlight Graham Cracker on January 19, 2023 at 4:11 am
