Its been years but when we had a console we'd rent games. Mostly the Need for Speed ones since they are so fast to beat (takes dh a week to do one of them that was super long but that was before kids ). But we don't have a console so no renting anymore

I used to when Hollywood Video was in town. For $30 you could get 3 games or movies at a time, keep them for as long as you wanted, rent as many a month as you wanted (though not more than 3 at a time). I used the snot out of that.

Not anymore though.

Apparently Redbox will start renting games which I may do, but who knows. The price of that is such a scam.

@Lesha, careful keeping games you rent... Around here they charge you the full retail price of the game plus a fee, which means for more than the cost of getting the game new you are buying it used.

Hi!

I saw this new site gamefly.com which seems to work a bit like Netflix... My husband and I are pondering using it to get more games for our Wii.

We're usual PC gamers, but I think (now that I am in my 3rd trimester) I might be more comfy sprawled on the couch playing a Wii game!

Any suggestions?!

I normally prefer to buy games because I don't like not finishing them but I did recently rent a game for my 360 - Borderlands. Amazing game but alas, didn't have time to finish it. It'll probably be on my new list of games to buy though.

I usually buy them and if I don't like it, I'll just resell it on Amazon.

Tolerance obviously requires a non-contentious manner of relating toward one another’s differences. But tolerance does not require abandoning one’s standards or one’s opinions on political or public policy choices. Tolerance is a way of reacting to diversity, not a command to insulate it from examination.

Nowhere good to get any where I am, I mostly just buy them off ebay. I haven't rented a game since I was a kid!
