If you are a gaming fanatic then you’ve probably had the experience of waiting anxiously for a new game to be released only to buy it and be desperately disappointed F95zone in the game itself. Games are expensive and even just buying one or two games a month can eat well into your monthly entertainment budget. With new games coming out weekly now its really hard to keep up and you can easily blow a fortune on mediocre games.
Renting it is not really a new concept as its been around for quite a few years now. In my opinion is very underused and most people simply don’t know how much they can save -and how much more games they can try out.
One of the main benefits of renting games instead of buying them is the fact that it costs only a fraction of what a new game costs. You can get a GameFly membership for as little as $20 a month which will allow you 2 games. That is only $10 a game and you will be able to keep it for long enough to play it all the way through.
Whats particularly great about this is that if you really like the game then you can simply buy it. GameFly and other game rentals have a “buy it” option that allows you to keep the games that you really like. The significance of this is that you can truly try out any game before you invest all your hard earned money on buying it – and not liking it. This way you only buy the games that you really like.
With game rentals you can get access to all the latest games. Ordering them online is really quick and easy and you can have it on your doorstep in as little as 24 hours – with a prepaid return envelope. Its as simple as slipping the game back into the envelope when you are done and that’s it. There are no late fees – unlike renting games from your local DVD shop where they kill you with late fees. In fact, that is how places like Block Buster make their money.
If you buy at least one game a month then I would encourage you to start renting. It will allow you to try out more games and play more games. It will allow you to only buy those games that you truly like which will save you a fortune and avoid the disappointment of bad games that you cannot return.
