    Found this funny.

    Went into blockbuster, hoping to rent Metroid Prime 3. I figured I was too late and would have to come back another time, but luckily there was one, in fact 3 copies there. I looked around to see games like that Carnival one taken out and Barnyard, games that are not good etc, and wondered why no one had rented Corruption. Rented it and looked at the disc, brand new, which wasn't too shocking really, considering it just came out, but what was shocking to me was that it was in and some pretty bad games were out.

    This ever happened to anyone else, with whatever sort of game?

    Well, BlockBuster is pretty family-friendly. I bet a lot of 7-10-year-olds go to BlockBuster with their parents to rent movie-based games and that sort of thing. I only used to rent at my local "Video Barn" (was my favorite place ever), but now, in place of Video Barn, is a nail salon. A god damned nail salon. So I no longer rent.

    I personally don't like renting games. I think its the fact that I feel rushed by the time limit, so I always buy my games and return them if I am not satisfied. I have not rented a single game to this day.

    Most gamers avoid Blockbuster and their spew of broken CDs, made up late fees, and lack of availability. Most rent games through Gamefly, or buy them. I hope to see Blockbust die in the near future. They have the worst wages for a store that pulls in so much cash. The CEO argued the employees don't do enough to warrant decent pay.

    I do the same exact thing. I only once had to bring a game back and this left me so disgusted that to this day I go to gamespot and read a review first.

    Blockbuster really isn't the best place to rent a video game either. When I go in and browse while my mom picks up a movie, their choice of games are so dull and small.

    I was debating wether or not to get Strikers Charged so I rented it and I thank God I did because in my opinion that game sucked and it would have been the biggest waste of $50.

    Well I rent at Blockbuster but only because I'm 15 so I have no job to pay for Gamefly. But the only thing I hate about Blockbuster is:
    1. You have to go to the store to rent games. No online.
    2. They really only want to distrubute DVDs. By this I mean that if you ask for a game they probably have no idea what you're talking about. Unlike if you go to EB Games/Gamestop or rent online at GameFly.
    Naruto, Dragonball, Fullmetal Alchemist, Zoids, and Bleach some of the best animes of all time.
