Hey everyone, I was just wondering what you all thought about Gamefly.
When I first started getting really into gaming, and i got a job and was able to support the hobby on my own, I thought it was kinda stupid. If I wanted to rent games, then I could just go to hollywood video, and if I didn't like it, I didn't have to wait a few days for a different one to come and it only costs 5 bucks per on top of that. And If I thought a game was good, then I buy it, new or used. But now, there's so many games out, and games cost 60 dollars a pop new(for the most part).
I just got OXM for example, they have previews for Call of Juarez, Mass Effect, Bioshock, Katimari, Lost Oddysey, Kingdom Under fire...well I can go on, but i'll save you guys the torment of reading a list going into the hundreds.
Thing is, there's too much for me to handle, and the rental period in a store isn't long enough IF I want to keep that game and play more, although then I could just buy, but Im starting to think 5 days isn't enough to warrant that decision, being that I have other things going on as well.
So im just asking, gamefly, you keep the game as long as you want correct? If I remember correctly, it's $15.99/mo.?
But what are your opinions on them? Did they ever have delays or REALLLLY long queue lines? Were the games ever really scratched? Do they have a policy if you buy a game from them after renting and it gets messed up(any protection thing i guess im trying to say)?
