After months of hearing about it I finally subscribed to Gamefly. One main reason I subscribed to Gamefly was to try out games I was "iffy" about playing. I could of bought it and traded it in but sometimes you can't even get the half the value you paid for when you first bought it, and those go for the games that are medium to least popular compared to the games you get 30 dollars for… but those are the games you want to keep.
One thing about subscription services is they always have options that make you buy the best value. When I first clicked on the Gamefly page it had "start for only 7.95 or try for free". I was like ok that isn't bad so I clicked in and saw the options….. OH 7.95 for the first month, (they always have a way to draw people in) and 15.95 every month after that for 1 game out at a time. Then another option was 10 days free trial and then 22.95 every month for two games out at a time. And then the final option (well it was the first option) was 11.95 for the first month and 22.95 every month after. Right off I knew the free trial wasn't the best deal because it will take like 2-4 days for your game to get here so that is at least four days taken from your trial and you don't even have the game, then you get charged 22.95 on the 11th day…. I don't think so gamefly.
So I have the best value, 2 games out at a time , I get to keep them as long as I want, if I want to purchase them I can click the option and they "say" they will give you the case and booklet with it, and you also have the option to trade in game for membership fees. The only thing about this is availability of the game. If it is low there is a chance you won't get it for a while so they send you the next actual "available" game on your GameQ. It sounds exciting but I guess I will see how I really feel within a month.
