I assume most of you already know about that place but I must say that I love the selection of games Toyratt has. Prices were a bit high on some stuff (for us yard sale and flea market hunters at least) but still way better than I've seen in many flea markets or in other gamestores.

The employee which was working when we went was good with us too. We ended up selling, buying and trading stuff at prices both the store and us were happy with.

I like to think that meeting Midge there after the swap has been a good thing for us (he seems to be a customer they like a lot). glad I got to meet you at the swap man. ;)

I will definitely return to that store next time I'm in the area.


Indeed a very nice place...He have a rent, employee and light to pay..so it was fine for me and it's normal for him to adjust is pricing regarding what he do....Highly recommend folks !

Made a visit to Toyratt the other day. Had to see what everyones talking about. And I must say the selection was impressive. The owner is aware of the value of many of the items he is selling and may have prices a bit higher on some items, but he offered me a deal on the games I was buying ( I didnt have to ask or hagel ). I left happy, feeling that I had got a good deal on the games I bought, it was worth the drive. Really nice dude, and hes got some entertaining youtube videos.

Well, for me, I've been to ToyRatt about 3 or 4 times with my two brothers. The place itself is visually awesome to see and typically they're always a place you can expect sought after titles will end up. The prices always seem quite flexible (as the staff is always ready to deal with you) and they get some pretty obscure neat stuff.

Personally, I absolutely love going here to trade and they always go out of their way to make me feel like my trip from Kitchener to Milton is definitely worth it.

Ah common now Pete, who's going to pay $20 for that game? I was just try'n to have some fun with your post.

The dude at Toyratt is okay by my books. Turok 2 might be just a tad more then Im willing to pay.

I got nothing else to say (no crap), until I can report back with a review for another good gameshop.

I'm definitely one to use this site to contrast prices, however the biggest concern I have is the volume of titles being sold doesn't exactly realistically reveal or reflect current market prices or trends. It's just too small of a portion to say this is the right or wrong price. But, it is a good site to give you a general idea/prevent you from feeling 'beat-up' on a particular price, however relying solely on it wouldn't be the best - in my opinion.

Still waitin'.
But, I think it may have been a bit of a loaded question it seems.

I went to KW vintage games. The prices are really high, and the guy that owns the place is a dick. I asked a question and he was really rude. Wasnt worth the drive from Toronto.
