About Us

Video Game Wizards has been a part of the Portland community since 1991. In 2005, Dominic and Lacy purchased the business with blind faith in hopes of bringing it back to life with a fresh feel. Both Nick and Lacy had been customers of VGW since childhood, and couldn’t bare to see the shop turned into anything else but a family friendly local shop.

Considered “My Game Store” by many, VGW has strived to provide the best customer service, fair trade-in & cash values, respect and consideration for their customers, and competitive sale prices.

First thoughts when walking into VGW, the shop is small, tight, and full of every video game console software you can think of. From retro Atari and Nintendo to XBOX ONE and PS4, you’ll find it all. If we don’t have it in stock, our staff is usually very happy to help you track it down or order it in for you!

Video Game Wizards has also been a large supporter of the Portland Retro Gaming Expo. Since it began in 2006, we have been there to watch it grow into the amazing show we all look forward to!

Family owned and operated, VGW is small, but growing. With 2 Oregon locations (Portland and Molalla). We believe in offering the best local experience and that is why we have made the decision not to expand too quickly. We want to ensure you, our customers and friends, receive the same great experience at each location. A lot of time goes into ensuring our staff loves their time here and therefore your experience with VGW will be pleasant.

We take great pride in assisting collectors with tracking down elusive and hard to find items. However, if you’re new to gaming, or looking to build a collection, we’re delighted to tell you about the games we’ve played and the games we love. So whether you’re shopping for the latest hit or looking for something rare, your quest is our quest at Video Game Wizards!

We believe in maintaining a positive atmosphere that excludes no one. We embrace all aspects and all eras of the gaming industry. We celebrate the history of video games while anxiously looking forward to the next revolution. We value the classic as much as the cutting edge.

Trade-In Details

Video Game Wizards Trade-In Information

We accept virtually all game consoles and accessories for trade-in. We also accept Blu-ray movies as trade-ins.

  • Payouts are available in the form of cash or in-store credit.
  • We price games and consoles competitively at market value whenever pricing data exists. For obscure or rare items, we will make an offer based on our best judgement of the item’s worth and condition.
  • Each item is individually priced to ensure all of our customers get a consistent trade-in experience. We generally do not process “bundle lots” where all objects are combined and a total offer is given. Instead, each trade-in object is itemized and assigned a value, which gets calculated in the final offer.
  • We’re always accepting trade-ins. It is not limited to a certain time frames. If we’re open for business, we’re accepting trade-ins!
  • We accept partial-console bundles. In other words, if you only have the console to trade (no cords/controllers), that’s okay! Bring what you have and we’ll make a deal!
  • Consoles do not need to be unopened. If it has been opened before, we will still accept them.
