oh god, nostalgia.
my local blockbuster had game tournaments every weekend.it' s where i met a whole different group of kids from a different town and we became friends.i even formed a band with 3 of them a few years later.all the employees were ******* cool as hell, the manager would buy us food if we helped pick up empty plastic cases and stuff.
but eventually it stopped.half the store got taken down for a ******** hair salon.the tournaments stopped.
then the employees left one by one, all sensing the loss. then it became a chipotle.
i still see an employee from that blockbusters every now and then, but rarely.that time in my life was awesome, and i wish i could go back and re-live it all again.
god damn it OP, you gave me such a strong feel.thank you.

I was wondering if you were talking about the wheeling blockbuster.

Ok. Something similar happened to ours.

We've still got one in California. I rent movies from time to time, but I always missed those game tournaments. My brother and my cousin would win sometimes.

I remember going to blockbuster at the end of every month with my 5 best friends. We would split up and find find a game or a movie and we would go back to someones house and spend the entire weekend playing those games and watching the movies. Now I'm at college and I've lost contact with a few of those friends. I really only talk to one or two of the 5 now. Blockbuster held our group together... I think it's about time I give them a call and catch up.

Where? I live ten minutes from Atlantic City, and I haven't seen ONE in five years...
User avatar #273 to #248 - gaynigger (02/19/2012) [-]
Really? That's kinda surprising. The only ones I can think of off the top of my head are in Jackson and Brick. Probably Toms River as well. So I'm not really sure about other counties, but I know Ocean has a few here and there. Definitely more than what I mentioned.
User avatar #281 to #273 - tropius (02/19/2012) [-]
Well, I don't visit AC a lot anymore, so I dunno if they're still there. There used to be one down the street from where I live, but it got turned into a day care...

User avatar #220 to #1 - gaynigger (02/19/2012) [-]
ahhh hollywood video. There's still the giant building of one in my town, just shut down. Nothing has taken it's spot yet even though it's been out of business for years.
#226 to #220 - goingtopuke (02/19/2012) [-]

#23 to #1 - nikkowle (02/19/2012) [-]
I miss that place ):

They all shut down where I live, along with all those kind people at gamecrazy...
User avatar #41 to #1 - MetallicaForever (02/19/2012) [-]

User avatar #4 to #3 - rchelicopterswag (02/18/2012) [-]

#5 to #4 - goingtopuke (02/18/2012) [-]

Damn. Nowhere near SLC. I live here in Georgia, about 40 miles north of Atlanta. All we have here is gamestop, and from what I've heard about them, I'm never going there as long as I have to. I think I'm just gonna get a Gamefly subscription along with my Netflix and Hulu Plus. Sounds easier.
User avatar #15 to #6 - theswaswe (02/19/2012) [-]
There's one still in Cleveland, Tennessee, unless it's gone out of business since December when I was up there.
#7 to #6 - goingtopuke (02/18/2012) [-]
im sure there are still plenty around i think it's cause people like the feel of a video store just something you can't get with stuff like netflix
User avatar #12 to #7 - airplaneseightteen (02/19/2012) [-]

Oh god, the FIRST EVER game I rented ever was from Hollywood video. Pokemon Colosseum oh it feels good man. GameCrazy next to it, Game Crazy went out of business and the Hollywood Video became a damn mattress store. There is a Blockbuster left where i live but its closing next week.

I used to have a Family Video by me, then it turned into a Movie Gallery, then it turned into a goddamn ice cream shop. Then the Blockbuster nearby shut down.

MFW I have no where to go to get the movies I want.
