Have you ever wanted to check out a game that you heard about so the next chance you have you jump in your car and drive to the local rental store? You get there and scour the shelves just grabbing the last copy to the disappointment of the guy a few feet behind you. You feel his pain because you have been him a few times. Then you wait in line, if it’s the weekend you wait even longer. You dig around for some silly membership card and then fork over your cash. A few days later you get a call from some automated person telling you that you have to drive back over and return it. That’s not cool. That is the past! What is the future? Online game rental sites are the answer to that question.
Why are these websites the way of the future? Well for starters they don’t require driving to them in order to pick up your game. Online game rental sites also have amazing availability on great titles! Their selection is comparable only to similar online movie rental companies. Their collection is broad and deep. You can scan through their inventory 24/7 on the web and pick out the games you like then have them mailed to you. You can do all of that without leaving home! No one is in line in front of you. You don’t need to fumble around looking for some silly membership card and when you are done with the game you simply mail it back in the pre-paid envelope that came with the online game rental.
Online game rental companies don’t give you “due dates.” You will never get a call from some automated person telling you to return their game. This gives you the chance to enjoy the game on your time not theirs. When you are finished with it you send it back to the online game rental company and they will send you the next one you request. You can even set up a queue list of titles you would like to play next. When you have a queue set up the online game rental company knows what to ship out to you when they receive your last game in the pre-paid envelope. This means even less work for you!
You can “try before you buy” with online game rental companies. Have you ever rented a game and enjoyed it so much you wanted to buy it? With old fashioned rental stores you can’t buy the copy you have at the moment. You have to return that copy and go out and buy the actual game. With some online game rental businesses if you like the game you can keep it. You go online and pay for it and they will send you the original manuals and case at no extra charge.
So what happens if you want to cancel your subscription? Most online game rental companies will let you cancel online or over the phone with no problem. A few sites will even save your queue and login information for up to a year just in case you change your mind!
Online game rental companies are the future of rentals. They save you the hassle of driving to the store, the out-of-stock dilemmas, the waiting in line and the annoying phone calls. Online game rental sites offer you a dynamic inventory and great availability with many other benefits like online queues. What could be better?
