GP blogger, Paganostaghetti writes, "Remember the days when you would save your money just to go down to your local movie rental store and rent a movie? You didn’t know if it was going to be good, so you thought you’d try it out? You can’t really do that anymore, but that’s by choice. Video rental stores are going out of business because people are choosing not to rent their movies.
In fact, you don’t even temporarily own them; you download them and put them on your computer to watch whenever you please. TV shows aren’t even safe anymore because people PVR them, or once again, download them. There was one medium people thought would always be safe (other than books, as apocalypse movies have shown, libraries will exist until the end of time and beyond), and that was video games.
With all the debate going on around online passes, there seems to be a lot more people pushing against them, than for them. Now with both sides taken into account, I believe the online pass is a good thing and not the end of video games as we know it. Here’s why."
