Online video game rental. What is it and why should you use it? That is the most popular question when this topic comes up. To rent or not to rent, that is the question. Some people say that you shouldn’t use it.. Some people swear buy it. There are numerous questions about the subject beginning with the obvious… What is online video game rental?Online video game rental is exactly what the phrase implies. You want a video game but your funds are limited. (especially in today’s environment…). This leads you to the online video game rental service. You find out what it is all about. You like what you read. You then go to the website and become a member. When you rent video games from a reputable online video game store, this store should offer at a minimum:no late fees, an impressive library of old and new games covering all available console systems, and a return policy. With the service you will be given access to an impressive library of every video game that you can think of, plus some that you didn’t know about. Now that you know what it is, let’s list the pro’s and con’s of the service.The pro’s are obvious. Every video game for every current video game system. Low monthly payments. And no late fee’s.The con’s are a little more complicated. You first have to decide if this service is perfect for you and your situation. By situation I mean that the online video game rental service only works for those that are in a certain stage of life with regard to income and patience.First of all, this service is perfect if you are an old school gamer like myself. I have been playing video games since PONG! and the only thing that has changed are my pockets. They are not as full as they were when I was a teenager with no bills. I’m married with kids, have bought a house and vehicles. Not to mention 2 jobs just to make ends meet. This is the perfect situation for the online video game rental service. If you are in this situation then you will know what I’m talking about.You are an old school gamer if you still enjoy the occasional video game to relax after a hard day’s work. Just because you are married with kids now doesn’t mean that you can’t still enjoy your games. That’s the cool thing about this service, you can still be a loving parent and spouse and still satisfy your love for video games! A lot of the arguments against the service will say that their biggest gripe is waiting for the game to be delivered via conventional mail to their house.Why wait for 2 days for a game when I MIGHT(I say might because it depends on the popularity of the game.) be able to get the same game in the retail stores the same day? The answer is this: When you are a busy working adult that has a wife and kids and a mortgage and a car payment and not sitting at home waiting for the game, then 1 or 2 days waiting for the game is not a long time at all! To me, the online video game rental service is perfect also because of the money I’m saving.The average video game now is 60 bucks. That’s 60 hard earned bucks in this uneasy economy! That’s just for one game. If two or more games are coming out the same month, that’s 120 to 180 bucks a month! With the online video game rental service you will be charged a minimum of $15.95 a month! You do the math! 120 to 180 a month or $15.95 a month! It seems like a no-brainer to me. Do yourself a favor and sign up for this service. You won’t be disappointed!
