In today’s entry of Blast From the Past: A Guide to Local Retro Video Game Stores, we visit the metropolitan area of Denver, CO. Let’s make one thing clear right now: Denver and the surrounding cities within a 60 mile radius know how to build a retro gaming community. The Mile-High City claims the title of having the most retro video game stores out of any other major city covered in this series so far, with 14 unique and 26 total (yes, you heard that number correctly) stores, respectively. Some notable franchises in the area include: Doc’s Video Games (Arvada/Aurora), Level 7 Games (Denver), and Game Source (Fountain/Littleton). Other boutique stores like Atomic Games West (Golden), Game Trader (Brighton), and Game Zone (Lakewood) act as their local city’s primary hub for retro gaming needs.

Are we missing a retro game store from Denver not on this list? Do you have a story you’d like to share about visiting one of these stores? Feel free to let us know in the comments section!
