Borrow games instead of buying them like a law-abiding citizen, huh?

You're going to jail.

Were you under the impression that games couldn't be borrowed or lent? Have you ever heard of Redbox, Gamefly, Blockbuster? These companies loan you copies of video games for a fee. When you borrow from a friend, no money changes hands, no royalties are paid. It would be like me loaning you my lawnmower. There is nothing illegal about it.

Did you like the tips or not?

Edit: Hah, sorry, I didn't know telling people they were going to jail was your thing. Especially ironic since you admit in your bio that you borrowed a Nintendo Wii once.

I liked the tips all right, I'm all for saving money :)

But in fairness, telling people they are going to jail is only my thing this week. I initially had to moderate myself after I lost all my bubbles from telling people they were going to hell.

Stealing bubbles from a person like that, can you imagine? Those guys are going to jail.

ya thats pretty obvious to do if u wanna save the cash.. Ive been doing this for about a decade except the whole borrowing part.. Ill buy used & try to beat it in 7 days so i can exchange it for another at gamestop.. That or get my money back all together & wait til something i really really want comes out..

I stopped throwing my money away on $hitty half a$$ed dev'd games in the PS1 days... Now i do a lot of research & only give it to devs that deserve my money for crafting a masterpiece imo
