BFTP_SanAntonioIn today’s entry of Blast From the Past: A Guide to Local Retro Video Game Stores, we visit the metropolitan area of San Antonio, TX. The Alamo City is home to nine retro video game stores. Game Over Videogames, a major retro game store chain headquartered in Austin, operates two stores in the northern part of San Antonio. The other seven stores are individually owned boutique shops scattered throughout the area. Some notable boutique stores include: D Pad (New Braunfels), 8-bit and Beyond (San Antonio), Propaganda Palace (San Antonio), and Flashback Gaming Center (Seguin).
