Whether you’ve become addicted to World of Warcraft or you’re still busting caps in Counter-Strike, you’re sure to find some like-minded mouse jockeys at Cyberglobe in Concord. This thin little shop stall is packed to the gills with top-of-the-line PCs, and the characters who come here to play don’t mess around. This is the den of the seriously skilled, and after just a few minutes of playing against them you’ll realize that only the best of the best can hang with these twitchy gamer geeks. Of course, you could play one of the many other games available here: Starcraft, Warcraft III, Unreal Tournament, Quake III, and Diablo II being the most popular. And there’s always the option of simply checking your e-mail and abusing the fast Internet connection available here. But games are the reason this place exists, and when you’re paying by the hour you have plenty of time to get your butt kicked by snickering fifteen-year-olds.
