Maxxi Games, Paris *LOTS OF PICTURES*

Post by Overheat » Fri Mar 23, 2012 4:55 pm

My friend just stumbled across this video games shop in Paris near the Metro Station. There are about 10 video game shops in a row and this is the end one - Maxxi Games. Thought I'd share it with you guys - it looks immense - here are some pics from another website, which also highlights a few other retro game shops in the area:

Despite all the nice things, the first thing I thought was '£5 for Shaq Fu??'

Euros.
5 Euros is more or less the same as £4.
Actually that place is expensive.
