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.Make Video Game Rescue a centerpiece of your Jacksonville vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Jacksonville trip planner .
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!

I absolutely ADORE this place. The prices are 100% fair and agreeable. While I wish they had better stock I totally understand the situation and won't knock them on this. Staff is great to talk to about video games and are incredibly nice. I haven't had a bad experience with one of them. If you're looking for retro games and other gaming needs, GO HERE.
Fantastic place! My boyfriend and I decided to pop in and check out the arcade. Ended up running into some friends in the back room, playing a card game and they dealt us in. Made us both feel right at home
