Video Gaming in Washington, DC?

I hope someone can help with this. My boss asked me to look for unique video game stores and arcades within the Washington, DC area. Specifically speciality stores that aren't the usual big box store or GameStop/EBGames. Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks!

Look up "video games" and put in DC's zip code.

Thanks, but that's mostly Gamestop type stores. I'm looking for places that offer a unique gaming experience, be it a store, club, or arcade type place. It can be in general too if you guys know of anywhere unique anywhere in the country.

Starland in Annandale has some imports along with a good amount of older games and consoles. They also have some figurines and other merchandise from games and I think also sell anime and manga.

The Pandora's Box in Springfield Plaza is no longer there. There's a gaming store in Springfield Mall called Cyberzone Centers that has Xbox, Xbox360, PS2, and PC gaming areas setup in the store that allows you to play games. Not sure if you're allowed to bring in your own laptop/PC to game in their store though.
