I signed up for Gamefly


Hitman Absolution on the way

I can already tell this will be a great investment. I won't end up with shite like Far Cry 3 that is fun for a playthrough but not worth $60.

That was my reasoning as well. Quality games that aren't worth the full price.

Had it for 3 years now, can't beat it.

2 games out plan, rent games like AC3/FC3 beat and send back.

Love it, fast shipping too, takes me 2 days to get them after they ship, 2-3 days to return and get a new one coming.

Yup, it was pretty handy living in LA with a shipping center in TX.

I was pretty underwhelmed by it.

I can see it being something I would use off and on every few months. My brother had it for a time and ended up canceling because it was hard to get new titles and there weren't that many titles that he wanted to play. IIRC he liked it for getting a good handle on games like bayonetta, but there were far more games that he had absolutely no interest in or time for playing.

If you preorder a title you get it immediately.

Add a game a week before it comes out to your Game Q #1 spot, and they ship it out Monday the day before release and you get it Wednesday.

I never once didn't get a new release the day after release in 3 years with GF.

Same here. All it takes is basic knowledge of how to set up a queue.

re: I signed up for Gamefly


I'm currently using Gamefly myself. I'm being smart about it though. When there aren't too many great games out at once, I'll offer a friend of mine to use up my second game and charge him half the price of the game. (CoD BLOPS2)I have my copy and he has my other one. He gave me $30 to play it and our agreement is that in 3 months I can choose to return it or let him borrow it another month at $5 for the month. 2 game plan is the way to go IMO

I was signed up for a year. Decided to quit after i realized the last thing i needed was even more games. I already buy way too many games that i havent even played.

Which certainly beats $60 for a game that is useless once you beat it. I'm not a big multiplayer person, other than COD, so $16 or $22 a month is MUCH better than dropping $60 just to beat a campaign in a week or two.

Haven't done gamefly. But one yer I was living out on my own for a job for about 8 months and I did a plan with Blockbuster that I passed on my way home from work for 1 game or 2 movies out. I played the shite out of some games those months. Haha
