As a gamer there are many games that  I wanted to play but couldn’t because they were outside of my ‘college kid budget’.  Video games are expensive, and most are only worth renting as they become boring too quickly or get completed easily. I’m sure many of you guys have seen commercials on TV, after which deciding “what the hell I’ll give it a shot”. For those who don’t know, Gamefly is the video game version of Netflix, and works in almost the same way. You sign up for a plan, rent a game and it comes in the mail in about 3-5 days depending on where you live.

The best part is that you can keep the game for as long as you want and there are no late fees. If you like the game, you can make it yours by buying it. The service also has GameQ which helps to manage your account with your current rentals, games that are about to come out i.e. Madden 13 or Resident Evil 6, and other great features.  Gamefly offers different plans that are reasonably priced to suit any gamers budget. For example with the plan that I currently have,  I can order two games and pay only $22.95 a month.

Now I can finally play games lots of games i want without spending hundreds of dollars. Overall it’s worth looking into at least, as they provide free trials.  Like many of us gamers out there,you’re  tired of spending money on games that aren’t really worth buying. And if you’re buying these games for your children and you don’t want to spend another $30-$60 on another video game, look into Gamefly. Trust me its worth it
