      There is a battle between two wolves inside us all.

      One is evil and the other one is good. Which wolf will win? The one you feed the most.

        KB Toys. I remember that I used to go all the time to the local KB Toys at the Arbor Place Mall Douglasville,GA and see what kind of neat stuff they have.

            Hollywood Video and Game Crazy (although I've never stepped foot in the latter), because of the fact that I liked the former for their big new releases section, even if you saw numerous copies of the same title on one shelf column! I did like the cartoon characters they showed on the wall border above the display shelves in the new-releases section. There was Taz, Alvin, Princess Jasmine, Sonic, etc. There were so many of those characters on those borders!

            I also miss Service Merchandise. I loved looking in the SM catalogs at home and wanting to go the one in Lima, OH (now a Hobby Lobby), but only went there a few times, the last time when it was going out of business about 12 or 13 years ago.

            Value City is another store I miss, because I spent most of my child hood was spent shopping there (especially the floor tiling looked like pizza dough and sauce to me), my family typically buying clothing and shoes, and if we were lucky, toys, which were also bought at nearby Circus World, another store I dearly miss the most. I've bought a number of toys there at said Circus World, as well as video games that became part of my childhood Sega Genesis game collection.

              TG&Y:Like a Walgreen's, but they sold toys, clothes and stuff for your house. Closed in the late 90s.
              Best:Sort of like Service Merchandise. They sold jewelery, electronic and crap for the house.
              Federated:Electronic store like Circuit City. Was owned by Atari Corp at one point. Closed in the mid 90s.
              Circuit City:Better than Best Buy until they stopped paying their sales people commission.

                      I also miss Hollywood Video. There was a location in Hiram,GA my family used to go to every week or so to pick up movies back in the 90s. I rented the infamous Superman 64 game from there.

                        Hollywood video was nothing special, family video is nearly identical.

                          I think for me, since I only had a Hollywood Video/Game Crazy and a Blockbuster around where I lived, it was the fact that I could rent videos and games cheaper for a longer period of time (I think Blockbuster was $7 for 5 days, while Hollywood was $3 for a week) and plus, it was attached to a store that dealt with nothing but games, where I could actually buy them if I wanted too, so that was a plus for me.

                            Definitely Hills but Family Toy Warehouse also deserves an honorable mention. :-D

                                      Media Play. I remember going to this Southern retail electronics store back in the late 90s/early 00s. My purchases included were a VHS of Gone in 60 Seconds(2000) and a Monster Garage calender.
