In a world with big, multileveled shops with electronic devices and entertainment, small shops drown in this big budget world. And let’s not forget the online shopping world, where you can order anything from anywhere, in your bed, from your iPhone, at 04:00, when you’re drunk and don’t have money but do own a credit card.
Luckily, the world still has some shops where you can actually go to, take a good look at the product and decide there if you want it or not. Next Level is a gamer’s heaven. Sure, it’s not the biggest shop, and it doesn’t look fancy and you can’t play any test models there but -wow- they have a lot of games.
Welcomed by a lifesize model of Halo, you enter an office-like shop with the latest RPG’s, shooters and race games and forgotten Japanese titles on the Gamecube, PS1 or the first XBOX. Most of these games are second hand and you can buy them for a few euros. And if you have a question, the owner can answer you for quite some time and before you know it you’re discussing the whole Final Fantasy saga.
If you’re a gamer, take a look at Next Level ’cause they probably have the game you’ve always wanted, but never found. Not even online.
