Create an itinerary including Video Game Rescue
Video Game Rescue, a brick-and-mortar game store, was started by husband and wife team, Dustin and Deanna Gartenbush.The idea behind venue was actually started many years prior. With just a dream and a very supportive community, Dustin quit his full-time job in late 2012 and decided to make the ultimate gamer venue a reality.

In November 2014 the community came together and crowdfunded the FIRST arcade in Jacksonville since TILT shut down at the Landing and in Regency Square Mall. In the #VGRcade, you can play your favorite console games and throw back a few quarters in our classic arcade.

We believe that just because a game is old, doesn't mean that it isn't worth playing! From old school to new-gen, we cater to every brand of gamer. Noob, intermediate and l33t players are always welcome to visit our store, and participate in our events. Support your local game store, and help "Bring an Old Friend Back to Life!
Make Video Game Rescue a centerpiece of your Jacksonville vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Jacksonville trip planner.

  • This store rules. Fair prices, good selection, knowledgeable and friendly staff. But THEN throw in a rocking little arcade! With some of the latest Stern pinball machines? My wife and I were visiting family in Florida and I like to visit local game shops to see the selection and support the hobby. This is one of the best stores I've visited in the country. Great vibe. Great for the hobby. Awesome place, and if the second location is anything like this one, I'm sure it's just as good
  • Good store with very good employees. My only issue is their pricing, they appear to match prices off eBay or other auction sights and the prices can get outrageous. They quoted me $160 for a copy of Pokemon emerald with a messed up sticker and dead battery. Good used condition anywhere else has it for $120 or less.
