|trav23||07:58 pm - gamefly?|
so, i was checking the coming soon lists today for some games coming out, and realized that betwenn the beginning of september, and the end of november, there are 10 games i want to buy, and more that i would like to play but not for $60.
since i don't have $600 to spend on games in the next 3 months..
what kind of experiences has anyone had with gamefly?

I've been using gamefly for about a year. I got for exctly what you're talking about. For the price of 3 new games i can have gamefly for a whole year. plus i've bought too many games i don't play enough. Great to be able to play every game that come and out and then decide whether it's worth my hard earned money. their used prices are really good too, i can get Assisins Creed for $16!
But as far as service, shipping has really sped up with the new centers. Takes me about 2 days to get a game. Never had any issues with scratched or lost disc, luckily, but im sure they'd take care of it if I did.
If I wasn't already a member i'd sign up for the xbox live deal. they give you 30 day for $6 and 400 microsoft points. http://www.gamefly.com/live
I've been using gamefly since 2002, and I've always had good luck with the company. I like being able to keep the game without late fees and the "keep it" option, available with newer games, is a nice feature and often cheaper than a lot of the stores since you're already paying for the thing.
Hmmm...sounds like something I should pick up. There have been some Xbox games I've been wanting to play. And with Silent Hill 5 out.....heh-heh-heh.
It seems better than what EB Games and GameStop has to offer. They don't even so much tell you the price of what you're going to trade-in. Which is kind of embarrassing if you want to go and trade something in but can't.
