A Smart Way to Play Video Games
There's no question that there are quite a few video games that I like owning. These are the games you return to year after year and that you enjoy playing occasionally, even many years after they've been released. But I've also run into many situations where I purchase a game, play it a few times, and end up never playing it again. Such games end up being expensive, since I usually pay $50 or more for the newer releases. In the past, I've been able to recoup some of that money by selling games online, most often using Ebay. But needless to say, doing that on a routine basis can definitely become a bit of a hassle.
Renting games is one solution to this, but until recent years, there were not many great options in this regard. Blockbuster used to have video games, but as we all know, that company went bankrupt and you can no longer find any stores. Redbox likewise offers game rentals. The only problem is that you pay by the day, and the cost can get on the high side if you keep the game for any length of time. The answer to all these issues, for me, has been an Internet service called Gamefly.
Perhaps you've heard of Gamefly, or perhaps you haven't. It is a popular site among gamers, and it allows you to rent video games by mail. They currently have over 8000 games, which is quite a nice selection and one that is large enough that you'll never run out of things to rent, especially in light of the fact that new games are added continuously each year. What's more, Gamefly usually has good availability for the newly released titles.
Some people disagree with me, but I find the service to be inexpensive. If you only want to rent out one game at a time, it only costs $16 each month, and you are allowed to cancel at any time. They will let you try the service for 30 days with a Gamefly free trial. I got mine from this URL: http://freetrialspot.com/gamefly.php. That is what I did when I was first checking out the service. To be honest with you, I was not even sure if I would keep the service, but ended up doing so because the site was easy to use and they delivered games pretty quickly, which was an added bonus for me.
