GameFly is definitely a great service for those who enjoy playing a plethora of videogames each year without hurting their wallet.

i don't think GameFly would work for me as i will have a game sitting around for months without thinking of itl then the day will come when i don't want to do anything except for playing that game.

i have that damn problem. i need to wait til they are cheaper instead of buying them at launch and then not "being in the mood" for what is sometimes a year, at which point it is less than half the original price.

online purchasing only for me now as Australia is becoming crazy expensive for everything. just go ahead and double what this article says and you'll have a fair idea

I always have to consider money when I'm gaming. I mainly buy new titles with gift cards or store credit. In my opinion, $60 is too much because there's such a wide variety of games out there. If I paid $60 for every game I had, I would be broke by now!
