Renting Games Used to Be Easy

Back in the old days kids would ask their parents to take them to stores like Blockbuster or Hollywood Video. Later on, for me at least, my local grocery stores started to carry video games for rent. In fact they had a better deal then Blockbuster. Largely due to the fact that they were cheaper and allowed you to keep the games for two weeks instead of just one. Eventually Blockbuster got rid of their due dates and late fees. However this still didn’t seem to help them much as they filed for Bankruptcy last year. (Blockbuster, GameFly, Netflix, Redbox, Tech)
