Game Gurus: what do users think?

Zee: We had such an amazing experience at this place. You can tell the guy behind the counter knows his stuff. He was super friendly and helpful about the items we wanted/needed. We got a PS2, games, and a couple of accessories for it.There was a bit of a hiccup with the PS2 power supply that we bought, but the guy was more than happy to replace the power adapter. We were told that he double checks the hardware that he gets in, which I don’t doubt! It was just a happenstance that we got a faulty power cord.Thank you!!

Rodrigo Tintor: Great shop, good prices and great variety.

Peter Westergaard: Owner was very helpful and the shop had a great selection. Definitely will stop by again.

Christopher Melvin: Most helpful and kind and courteous

Had a solid collection of consoles and peripherals as well such as guitar hero/rock band controllers. Found an old long box PS1 game that I used to play as a kid and picked it up at a very fair price for the condition! Friend also came with me and found a game he had been looking for on the DS.

Marco Morcote: This is an awesome shop! Stopped by to pick up a beautiful metallic blue DSi, and had fun chatting with Maitreya, who was really knowledgeable about consoles, games, and repair questions.Great game and console selection, fair prices, and they even have some repair related items for handhelds.Seeing the old console demo kiosks they have really transported me back to the 2000s 🤯

Al's Music Video & Games: what do users think?

Cedar Russell: Amazing selection of all kinds of media, fairly and knowledgeably priced. Staff is happy to talk about any number of subjects and answer any questions. A fun place to spend time, and I always walk away with something cool!

Chris Huffstetler: We came for video game music and left with video game music! Awesome selection, only complaint is the narrow aisles.

Nirvana Enyo: Absolutely love this store great for gamers and movies and music lovers

Keith Fiorino: Al’s is life.Spotify - Jimmi Stone

A: Great place for repairs and mods. The technician saved my wavebird controller from extensive corrosion and now it's like new. They also modded my GameCube to play games from an SD card.sounds like the person who did this left but Al's still does some repairs

David Davidson: Went here with my father, who was pleased with the selection of music, and my brother, who was pleased with the games. My dad said when he lived here the store wasn't nearly as good as in his day, so it's neat that they've improved so much

James Clarendon: 5 stars for the video game repair service. In October I brought my OG Xbox in for repair. My self-executed mod had expired after 7+ years and the machine wasn't booting. The team at Al's took all my nitpicky info down accurately and sent me a copy of my repair form. Alejandro, the technician who did the work for me, was very knowledgable, understood the importance of the device to me, and explained the situation. They provided me a shortcut fix that could get me back up and running, but when I asked about other options they were happy to explain different options. Their good communication and subject mater expertise earned my trust and convinced me to go forward with an improved modification. There was no way in hell that I was going to spend many hours re-ripping all of my collection off original discs so they gave me step-by-step guidance for how to back up my hard disk before I returned the device for the upgrade. When the mod was completed, they again walked me through how to restore all of my backed up content. As a result I had a better modded device and all of my original data intact. They charged a fair amount for the work and research required.Again, I was grateful to Alejandro for their technical and communication skills.Everyone can grow, and I do have some constructive feedback: it would be good if Al's could tell me where in the queue my device was for repairs. I expect this could make some customers nervous. If they could see how many were ahead of them, it could set expectations and soothe them. I like to think I was more patient.I like to think that.

Ashtonmo_2002: Absolutely great this store is the best well rounded for games movies and audio of almost every format! The employees are very nice and the prices are great couldn't be any more happy with them, definitely worth the visit!

slambamwam: Great selection and prices! One of my favorite places in the U District.

Ryan ABXY (Ryan Gilbert Arnold): Chill staff and best selection of used Blu-Rays I've seen from a place that doesn't have "video" in their name.Glad I stopped in while visiting from Portland, 3 movies for $11.99 and 2 of them still had a working digital code, rock on.

Evan Rodgers: Great vibe, systems are a bit expensive but they had some harder to find stuff.
