Not much to say, I only bought a small bag of nes screws. However, it was one of the few places I found them, they werent even on ebay! Seems to have a good variety of great retro items, both for restoring and playing classic games. Quick shipping, professional communication, no problems at all! Thanks again!
This was my 1st time ordering from DKOldies. First, their website is simple to navigate (find products, prices, descriptions, etc), which right of the back was a huge plus. I find their prices on the majority of games they sell to be on par or cheaper than other sites. There were some that were a bit higher ($1-$3), but the free shipping more than made up for that. (Free shipping on orders over $25 was another huge plus. Who wants to be spending $ on shipping when that cost could go to purchasing more games?) Their selection is huge as well. After ordering I called with a question (after business hours). They were quick to get back to me and very polite on the phone. My order arrived 6 days after it was placed...again keeping in mind that I ordered online, Friday, after business hours, and still received my order really fast! The games were in great condition for their age.There was only some minor scratches on the labels, and one had some sticker residue which was fine with me and to be expected on games that old. All the games worked 100% and I couldn't be more satisfied. In summation: Easy website, great selection, good pricing, free shipping over $25, fast shipping, solid friendly customer service, and products that come as promised. I am glad to finally find a place I can trust to order my games and accessories from. I would highly recommend DKOldies, and will be placing many more orders.
I received a defective Game Boy cartridge, and contacted DK Oldies customer service. Chris, in customer service explained how to troubleshoot the cartridge and after it was apparent that the cartridge was not powering up, Chris gave me specific instructions on how to send the defective cartridge back for a replacement. I have purchased many products through DK Oldies, and this was the first occurrence for me to receive a defective product. DK Oldies customer service remedied the situation quickly and sent me a new cartridge. Their customer satisfaction and service are really, second to none!
Games arrived quickly and were in working order. I've been playing them for weeks with not a single issue. I really appreciated that dkoldies is a google trusted store, as that is why I ultimately decided to buy the games from the site.
I ordered the Nintendo NES and Mario Bros. 1-3 combo for my husband, and we are both having a blast playing the games from our childhood. I'm so thrilled to have found a site that carries these systems! Thank you!
I will never buy from Dkoldies ever again. They sent me a broken controller. I asked for them to replace it and send a working controller. They wanted me to ship the broken controller back for them to test and said they would replace it after they tested it. Shipping the controller back to them would cost me more than a new controller plus several weeks of waiting. If you want to receive your goods in working order I would suggest you order from someone else. With Dkoldies it is your responsibility to test the merchandise after you have paid for it. If it doesn't work it's your responsibility to pay and send it back to them. I made a big mistake giving them my business. I'll be ordering from one of the many competitors if I need new games or accessories for the NES.
Ordered a couple of Atari 2600 games and when I received them, they were in horrible condition (and that’s an understatement). Labels on the cartridges were ripped, torn and just awful looking. Yes, I understand that the cartridges are 20+ years old, so I was expecting glue-bleed and other imperfections; but these looked like they were chewed in and spat out, literally. If these were picked out at random out of their stock, I could only imagine what the rest look like. Also, nowhere on their website (not even in small print) states what condition they are in. The only thing is says is: “Pitfall! - Atari 2600 Classic Video Game. Game only. Great condition!!! Tested and works like new.” Great condition, huh? If you’re ordering new hardware, then their service might be okay; but if you’re ordering a used game, then definitely beware. You’d be better off going on ebay, so you can see what you’re getting at half the price. As for DKoldies, their quality control is zero.
While nothing can replace the local flea-market/hobby shop experience when it comes to finding retro games - DK Oldies.com is a great source when those local selections run dry!
The prices are good - tho a bit closer to "collector" status for a casual gamers taste... The games DO come with a 120 warranty, so I felt confident in my purchase - but I won't need it as the games arrived well packed and were in perfect working condition!
I found the games I wanted right away, the prices were reasonable, and I got multiple email notifications about the payment, shipping, etc. of my order. I highly recommend this website to anyone seeking old Nintendo games.
Dkoldies is definitely a site you should check out if you want to expand your video game collection or get into retro gaming. They have a great selection of video games, consoles, and accessories that are reasonably priced. I ordered 13 games and a brand new zapper from them. The package was processed and shipped very quickly and arrived later that week! Inside the package, all of the items I had ordered were there. The games were organized by console and were very protected in bubble wrap. The cartridges themselves were clean and in very good condition, and the zapper worked perfectly! The only downside to my experience with Dkoldies was that one of the games did not work. I emailed them about it and they responded to me very quickly, telling me that they would make sure I got a replacement that works. Sure enough, my replacement cartridge came very quickly and worked perfectly! I plan on doing future business with them as they are trustworthy and dependable. Thank you Dkoldies!
Overall I was disappointed with the way this order was completed. It came a full week late-after christmas and after the new year even-and when we opened it up we were missing one of the games that was supposed to be included. Seems careless to me, especially charging that much money and not receiving everything in the order. I emailed dkoldies and still have received no response. Hoping the second game is sent right away.
The NES system is fantastic and charming! I absolutely love it and my kids think it is cool to see what games we played when we were their age. It is like stepping back into 1987. Tecmo bowl, Mario, Mike Tyson's Punch Out, I can't wait to get more!
I'm very satisfied with the games I bought from DK Oldies- they arrived securely packaged, they arrived on time, they were in better shape than I expected, and they all worked great with no problems. I am looking forward to my next purchase.
I ordered the super Nintendo for an amputee friend of mine because he has always talked about how much he loved that gaming system from twenty years ago. He is so happy he's walking on air, so too speak. My son is now going to get one from DKoldies. Thank You DKoldies for making my friend a very happy happy person.
