What other alternatives are there for renting video games these days? I mean, with Blockbuster and many other chains closed, Blockbuster Online being just awful, Gamefly's low availability, and Redbox's lack of selection (and zero availability for PS3 titles), where do you guys rent games from?
I know it is a regional chain, but Family Video has a pretty good selection. And they give free rentals for As on report cards, so that is a great time to get cheap rentals.

In my small town, they have a great selection of Wii U games currently. There is probably a handful of Wii U's in my town...

Thumbs up! Thanks bro, I have been wanting to play Bioshock Infinite and Tomb Raider! Since our last Blockbuster closed here I only have Redbox to try games now.
Quote from NoBantheSnowman View Post :
thanks, i was looking for something like this to show up.
Quote from achair View Post :
Thanks, OP.


At "low availability", I wonder what the likelihood is of us getting to play these two games this month. Long delays in sending games are what drove me to cancel my GF membership in the first place.
Quote from Macgyver2484 View Post :
Horrible service. I was waiting 4 days for a game to arrive and I’m not in a rural area. And that’s if it was “available” which very few were (I own a Wii). If it had low availability it just sat in the queue. Low availability were games like Zelda and Mario Kart.

At best, I was lucky to get 5 games out per month (with the 2 out at a time) because they don't ship a new game out until the other one arrives back. They need more distribution centers to make this work.
Quote from Ignatius View Post :
Strangely enough, I've almost never had an issue with GameFly shipping new games on release date as long as it was at the top of my queue and I had a spot available a few days in advance. Although being in between two shipping centers (Washington and California) does help quite a bit...

Quote from Cimpy View Post :
bummer, I just resubbed for a month. Took them about 5 days to ship out Bioshock infinite.
Quote from njoy View Post :
don't really have an issue with getting good new games the problem is it taking 5 days to get from Pittsburgh to a town 1 hour north lol
Quote from prankies View Post :
This is very tempting, but I haven't turned on my console in almost 3 years. I've even had new copies of Red Dead Redemption and Forza Horizon sitting in shrink wrap on my desk since Christmas. PC Gaming master race and what not.

Was looking for a way to play some games without commitment. This is perfect and the $1 thing worked. Repped, thanks OP

Quote from Hornettt21 View Post :
thanks.. only got 1 game though
Quote from dkl415 View Post :
I got an email for this in March, and signed up. I requested a dozen games, and got the worst ones I was least interested in, which had the most availability. Better games had "medium" availability, but no such luck.
Quote from Rescue323 View Post :
thx. gonna give it another go.
Quote from dojoman View Post :
Thanks got it.
Quote from cwilburn View Post :
Just got this. Been waiting for a renewal deal. THANKS!!! Waiting on Halo 4 now and then Tomb Raider since Tomb Raider will take forever lol
Quote from JulianT View Post :
Restart worked thanks Smilie
Quote from Shoryuken23 View Post :
If a game is multiplatform I get it for PC. Games like Tomb Raider and Infinite look amazing on a good PC. However I couldn't miss out on all the good console exclusives. If you dont like Ninja Gaiden, God of War, Gears of War, Uncharted, Metal Gear, Heavy Rain, MLB Show, Gran Turismo, Madden, Halo, Mario/Zelda/Metroid, numerous JRPGS etc then yes all you need is PC.
Quote from nicedart View Post :
This would be a good deal if the games didn't spend 1/3 of the month in shipping. The original reason we canceled GF to begin with.
Quote from fidelsan View Post :
I restarted this membership on 3/29. I added 3 games: Bioshock Infinite, Tomb Raider and Persona 4.

Only persona 4 has shipped. This is why I canceled them last time. Unless you want games that have been out for over 6 months, expect a few weeks to get them... then you end up getting old games that you don't really play because you ended buying the game you really wanted to play.

Just my opinion.

Low Availability for all the games I want Frown
Quote from JayC2727 View Post :
Go play Red Dead Redemption, right now!
Quote from jaydude84 View Post :
I've been waiting an entire week for 3 games to ship: Bioshock Infinite for PS3, God of War Ascension and Fire Emblem Awakening. I have never seen it this bad before, and I really doesn't make me want to renew.
Quote from prankies View Post :
I know! The worst part is that I know I would love it, I am just a total bum about single player games (which is the whole reason to get Gamefly, IMO). I have a backlog of so many SP games right now it is ridiculous, but RDR is on the top of my list. I need to go dig my 360 cables out of the garage.

Now if only Rockstar would release it for PC drool
Quote from bytista View Post :
Anyone know how long this offer will last?. I want to do it now but I'm busy the next few weeks and don't know if i'll have time to play all the games i wanted to try.
Quote from wezlypipz View Post :
I'm in Mass and it takes 3-6 days to get games, and these are high availability games, the service isn't worth it imo. I got a free month, I played one game, Uncharted for Vita, beat it, it was free so I was happy, cancelled the service.

Just signed up for a dollar for two games at a time, did this five days ago, games shipped four days ago, still not here. There is no way I would pay regularly for this service...its slow...you figure your shipping time and their shipping time, you are looking at more like having the game for half a month, but I digress...it was only a buck!

Anyone else seeing this?

2 Games Out
1 Month for Only $1.00
($22.95/month after)
Quote from MFlash321 View Post :
Yeah, that's how it is, lol.

Cancel it before your first month ends so you do not pay the $22.95+
Quote from firebirdx01 View Post :
I had Gamefly in Chicago....one time it took them 3 weeks for them to ship CoD: Black Ops 2 which was listed under low availability---but it was also the only game I really wanted to play at the time.

New releases are pretty much a pain- supposedly they've improved by adding some distribution services, but if you don't have a wide selection of games on your queue, definitely expect to wait a while for new releases. My best turn around times were 3 days minimum, with new releases anywhere from 1-3 week wait.
Quote from MFlash321 View Post :
Gamefly seems to be falling off. Used to be a breeze a few years ago to get games instantly and shipped within a few days. I always get new releases shipped when they released.

Couldn't resist for $1 for the month to catch up some on old goodies.

Quote from Solari View Post :
Gamefly tends to send games right at release if you add them to your queue prior to release. If, however, you add the game shortly after release, you'll be waiting a very long time... at least that's my experience.

That's a good question. I usually go for Redbox, who has decent selection in my area, but they have yet to get GoW any where in my area. Closest one is five hours away.

There aren't many places to rent though. Which sucks.
Quote from chipper7417 View Post :
Both of my old accounts are coming up as only 1 game out for $1 Frown
Quote from Zeke Reisen View Post :
yeah I usually use Redbox, but they really dropped the ball this last month. No Tomb Raider for the PS3 around me, and there's over 50 Redboxes around me in a 10 mile range according to their website. Based on their facebook comments, I'm not the only one experiencing this. No Bioshock Infinite PS3 or God of War Ascension either. Then there's this weirdness of them having games like Army of Two: Devil's Cartel in kiosks, even though they don't show it on their website.

Yep, I canceled. Received Halo: CEA and played it for 3 missions. Also received GoW Judgement and did not touch it. No appealing games. Can't complain for the dollar, lol
