There are plenty of places to go in Taipei where you can have a good time, meet with friends, meet new people, and really enjoy the city…or you could just stay at home and play video games. If you choose the latter, then you’re gonna need to keep stocked up on new games. Although there are lots of places to find a few titles here and there, no area has a selection so comprehensive as the Video Game Market located in the underground mall close to Taipei Main.

The Games

The first thing you’ll notice when you get to the market is the number of stores, and equally, the variety of games. You should be able to find anything you want here, as long as it has been released in Asia.

But that’s not all, some stores even offer imports of North American releases, so you can get those new games before others. Furthermore, you can often find North American coded games for your imported console to play without being hacked.

The best part about the market is that you can also trade in and find second hand games for half the price of the originals. From what we have seen, the games come in perfect working condition with the instruction booklet and all.

The Environment

The gaming market is on the Civic Blvd. side of the underground mall, hanging out way at the back (west). There are quite a few stores, all with similar but still different selections of games. The staff members are usually fairly helpful depending on where you go and you shouldn’t have a problem getting what you are looking for.
