How Do You Get Your Games? Renting Vs Buying Video Games

Games have always been an important part of human existence. Humans have been playing them since 3000 BC, as competition, entertainment, punishment, and so much more. Today they are really popular, not the ones the ancient Romans played to torture and train gladiators but, video games.

Video games have come a long way since the classic games of Pac-Man, and even the original Mario Brothers. Today we have loads of games and game systems to play them on, including the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii, Call of Duty, The Sims, and so much more, Along with video games advancement the prices also changed drastically. However people will always continue to buy video games regardless of the price, which is why it is extremely important to know how to get your video games in a convenient and affordable way.

Therefore, I always say there are two ways to get video games, you can either rent them or buy them. With renting you can borrow the game from a company and return it once you and buying where you just buy the game. But in my case I choose to do both. I chose to do both because it is quite convenient and affordable for my gaming needs.

Renting games is awesome, that's why I am surprised when someone has never heard of renting games. Renting games gives you a feel for the game and a complete gaming experience without going out spending fifty or sixty dollars on it. Also if you want to keep the game you can buy it at a cheaper price than retail. "Where do I rent games?" you might ask. For my game renting I use "Gamefly" and Blockbuster Online, both of these companies are great. But I do prefer "Gamefly" because "Gamefly" has a larger supply, and you would be on the waiting list with Blockbuster Online forever.

Renting is not always going to work for me, because "Gamefly" or Blockbuster may take a long time to get a game that I want. So, I also choose to buy, because sometimes I do not want to wait for "Gamefly" to get a game. Of course I do not buy my games at retail price, instead I buy them online. Buying games online is way more affordable than buying them from a retail store. Online you can buy them for the same quality but for a way cheaper price.
