I remember every weekend...my mom would take me to blockbuster...and I'd pick from what seemed like a million game choices...and I'd go home, excited...and play all weekend. Anyone else miss only paying 8 dollars to finish a game...instead of 60?

No, I went to Family Video instead. They had much better deals.

I just miss the wonder of being a kid gamer.

Good ol' Gamefly. Ship me a game, spend an entire day installing it, than a couple of hours playing it only to realize you don't like the game and send it back to do it again with another game.

Not at all.

Prefer all my streaming options from the comfort of my home.

Oh, for games? Haven't rented games since high school

We have a Family Video here in town. The problem with them is that if you want to rent a new game they charge a $20 deposit to make sure you bring it back on time. They told me at one time I can call and extend my rental period, not sure if that's the case now or if they keep the $20. Anyway, it bugs me so I stopped renting games.
My mind is aglow with whirling, transient nodes of thought, careening through a cosmic vapor of invention.
