On April 5th, 2013, Darrin Griffin changed the gaming world of Central Ohio by opening Warp Zone - Video Games & Beyond in Hilliard, Ohio. With an overwhelming emphasis on building the local gaming community, Warp Zone deals heavily with competitively priced import and retro games. However, it’s not these games that make Warp Zone a cornerstone of Ohio; it’s the staff’s incredible knowledge on all things gaming, including Darrin and his encyclopedic knowledge of shmup games; it’s the commitment to doing regular get-togethers with customers; it’s the way that the store goes out of its way to welcome any and all gamers, regardless of age, ability, or preferences. Warp Zone was even featured in a key scene in the documentary Nintendo Quest. As Darrin himself says, “...Columbus is a retro-video-game mecca…,” and if you’re ever in Central Ohio, take the time to check out one of the greatest video game stores in the area. You can visit Warp Zone at 4496 Cemetery Road, Hilliard, Ohio 43026. This card is sponsored by Warp Zone’s biggest fans.
