Does anyone know of any good video game shops within easy reach of central London?

Apart from the crappy High Street ones like CEX and GAME, the only one I know of is Game Focus on Goodge Street. Are there any others I'm missing out on?

Cheers :)

There's an indie opened in Hackney a few weeks back at the top of Mare St but I've not been in. There's also one in Walthamstow at the top end of the market past Selbourne Walk shopping centre and they're very nice in there but nothing out of the ordinary.

Define "good game shop".

Oh, the Walthamstow people gave me a free Dragon Quest slime controller, so they're officially a good game shop I suppose :)

Raven Games in Beckenham Junction? They modded my Saturn about ten years ago. Dunno if they're any cop now though :)

They still have the same terrible website too.

I'm planning on going to London sometime soon to try and make a dent in my Christmas shopping list, and apart from a (quick!) trip up to Finchley before hitting the train home, I don't normally get time to go too far out of Zone 1.

Thanks for the suggestions though, I might venture a bit further out when I go back in the new year.
