This shop claims to have the lowest prices in town when it comes to computer games and accessories. They've got games for PCs and all consoles, from the old Saturn that Sega stopped making years ago to Dreamcast and PlayStation 2. You can trade a pile of old games in and exchange them for the latest ones out or just choose another second-hand game and spend the rest of your money on eye drops and coffee. G Force also does console maintenance and is always full of young men and women having intense discussions about Tomb Raider and Tekken.
This is by far the best computer shop to go to in glasgow if you want a reliable build. The shop staff have a good knowledge of compatable hardware that's suited to your needs. What's more important... the prices are reasonable. I strongly recommend them. These guys are good.
I recently bought a new DS game from G Force. Only when I got home did I realise they'd sold me a second-hand game at full price (the cartridge was scratched and the previous owner hadn't wiped their saved game). I took the game back. They offered no apology and just replaced the game. I'm confident that it wasn't a mistake though, as when they gave me a new game they took it from a different cabinet altogether.
I wouldn't shop there again.
Ok let's start with the good. They get popular titles in before any other game shop in Glasgow From America and I like the music they play and that's about it on the good side.
Here we go with the bad. Yes as others have said the staff are very dull and it's really not worth asking anything except "what date are you getting this game in". The layout of the shop is not that good. You can always see into the murky back room with all the dusty pc components lying out. The figureins was a bad move go to Forbidden planet on Buchanan street if thats what your looking for.
If you need a game sooner rather than later go in but if this game has already been released in the UK don't waste your time. If a Homeless person won't know the answer neither will they.
This is by far the ultimate gamers paradise!
You name it, they got it.
The shop staff have a knowledge of games that i would die for. What's more they tell it how it is. These guys know their stuff.
Whenever i'm in Glasgow i pop in. This place has soul. Even Celtic fans like me can manage Simply The Best when G-Force is concerned. And that aint easy for a Bhoy!!
Game shops don't come any better than this. Gamestation, Game etc know Jack.
The staff in this shop seem to generally have an over inflated sense of importance. Rarely friendly or polite, and never happy, shopping here is far from an ejoyable experience. The worst offender seems to be the owner, who manages to look more unhappy with his lot every time I se him.
Although the staff have the minimum knowledge requirement for a shop like this it is rarely worth asking anything of them, as the grunt that they use to answer will leave you wishing you hadn't bothered.
Price wise they are not the cheapest in town, especially for imported software/hardware. Neither do they have the widest range, especially after their inexplicable move into obscure Japanese figurines. If you want this kind of stuff there are far better shops to get it in.
In summary a poor shopping experience with miserable and unhelpful staff. Maybe they should buy the Herald on a Friday and look for a new job. If you want a really positive game experience, try CA GAmes at Hillhead. They beat this mob hands down without even breaking into a sweat.
The last 4 games I have bought from this company have had to be returned because the registration key for the game had already been registered. Althought they do sell second hand games, the games I bought were new. So why the problems ??? Surely it is not a coincident that FOUR different games (one game had to be returned twice) had this problem !!!!
On a walk round the city center, Costa seems to be everywhere you look in every shop, on every corner,
and that's because there are at least five outlets in the center alone, so no, you're not seeing things. ...
