About Us

DKOldies is Not Your Typical Online Store

DKOldies is a retro video game online store located in Morgantown, Pennsylvania specializing in original Nintendo N64, GameCube, Wii and more original game systems and accessories from the 80's and 90's. How are we different?

We are a family that wants to keep retro gaming alive by only having the very best. We make sure everyone is welcome no matter how much gaming knowledge you have and believe that everyone can enjoy retro games. Our diverse team here is made up of the smartest, most honest people you can find. Military vets, retro gaming nuts, and hard-working young people all team up alongside working moms and dads with the same goal - To make DKOldies the place of quality, honesty, and integrity you would want from a retro video game store. DKOldies.com is an online retailer only. We do not allow customers to enter the home office or distribution center to shop. Sorry.

No Fakes, Reproductions, or Modded Products are Allowed Here

There are so many fakes out there right now and they're getting trickier and trickier to spot today. Like our memories, we want our old games to be authentic, genuine, and 100% original. We have many checks in place, but our last line of defense is DKOldies' main Retro Technician - Dustin.

Dustin is a military veteran who takes retro quality and integrity to the highest level. He is an expert on the inside and outside of every game and console ever made, so he is in charge of the refurbishing process and quality control of every item here at DKOldies. Our old games look and work like new because we won't sell them if they don't.

Customer Service Like You Wish it Could Be 

Need help figuring out what game goes with what system? How to hook up your console to your HDTV? Or just want to talk to some really nice people who work at a retro game store? You can contact us any way you want for anything. Call, email, or message us and you will likely talk to Joey - our Customer Service Specialist. Joey loves people and loves talking with you. He loves talking with the Fed-Ex person, the mail carrier, the kid at the drive-thru, the lady who walks her dog past our office, and everyone else he comes in contact with. You can also give us a call and ask to speak with anyone.

We treat you like a human being and understand that buying online can be difficult. We try to solve your problems before you have them and if a problem does arrive, we will do anything to solve it and ensure it never happens again for you or anyone else.

How DKOldies Started

My name is Drew and I've been playing games since before I can remember. I loved video games, arcade games and would think about them non-stop. Their digital worlds were so vast and the video game scene felt like an underground rebellion. When I was 13, I started working at an arcade. I loved the old machines! The arcade I worked at was only in business a short time because video games as we know them today were rapidly taking over.

I then got another job at the age of 15 at a local comic book/baseball card store. I loved it and worked there over the next 6 years, learning how to run a retail store. There I also learned what customers wanted and how they wanted to be treated. I loved old collectibles and understood why they were so important to our customers. That store was really amazing. It had old sealed packs of cards from the 70's, every old comic book you could think of, and it had a real family atmosphere that made everyone feel welcome.  The owner of that store sold the business in the late 90's to Electronic Boutique and it went out of business a few years later. I quickly learned how differently a family owned business operated compared to a big corporation, and I felt a lot of quality customer service was lost under the corporate model.

In the early 2000's I began selling old NES games online. It felt like I was working at the comic book shop again, and personally helping people complete their collections. I immediately started buying and selling old games, using everything I had learned from my earlier work experience. I started up a warehouse in my basement, and soon had to hire my retired father just to keep up with my growing business. DKOldies has only grown bigger over the last 14+ years through our website, by appealing not only to the hard core video gamer, but also the rest of us who just want to go back to experience and share some of their favorite memories from when they were young. We’ve heard what our customers liked and didn't like about their experiences, and worked to constantly improve our services. 

DKOldies.com is a site made for the modern day, but built on the original principles I learned working for brick and mortar businesses. My staff and I care about you, your family, and especially the games we provide for all of you to enjoy. We strive to live up to our positive reviews and work to give our customers the best service available. I’ve always known that life can be full of hardship, but buying video games shouldn’t be one of them. I’ve made this site easy to navigate, and simplified our ordering services. DKOldies.com is a site for gamers by gamers, and I hope you enjoy your stay.

My goal is to have an online store that feels like an old collectible shop that I used to work in when I was a kid. A place where you can find everything, feel safe and welcomed doing your thing. I love collecting and playing old games and want you to love it too!

I could not have started DKOldies without the help of my wife Kate and my kids Grace, Bailey, and Reese. All have helped out at the office and have been learning more and more about what we do here.

As the business grew, I moved from my upstairs bedroom, to my basement, to our 2000 sq ft office/warehouse in Honey Brook, and now to our 9000+ sq ft warehouse in Morgantown, PA. This transition could not have happened without our Operations Manager, Scott. Scott and I met when he moved on my street when I was in 3rd grade. We have been friends ever since and he runs the day to day operations here.

As DKOldies.com started getting popular we needed to find some young talent out there to help take care of all the work that needs to be done in an online retro game shop. There is a lot of work to do - like repairing, cleaning, shipping, phone calls, emails, and loads of other things. Our Shipping & Service Manager is Joey and you have probably talked to him on the phone if you have ever called. Ash is our SYG Associate and is quickly taking on more and more. Dustin is our main tech associate and then we have our ever growing Shipping Department.
