In today’s entry of Blast From the Past: A Guide to Local Retro Video Game Stores, we visit the metropolitan area of Phoenix, AZ. Similar to our recent entry about Houston a few weeks ago, Phoenix has a large area (517 total square miles), providing ample room for the metropolitan area’s nine active retro video game stores to conduct business in. Within the college-friendly city of Tempe alone (home to Arizona State University, the largest US university by student enrollment), there are three: The Gaming Zone, Fallout Games, and Flashback Games. Moving to the area’s outskirts, you have boutique stores like Fix & Play Electronics (Avondale) and Game Zone (Gilbert).

Are we missing a retro game store from Phoenix 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!
