Do you buy or rent games

46 posts in this topic

I try to buy as many games as possible but sometimes renting seems more sensible especially with the current rental services where you pay a set price each month and get unlimited rentals.

I buy only now, I tried renting for a few months but the best/newest games are always unavailable and you usually end up getting sent one at the bottom of your list/queue

I buy the games that I really like, but anymore any new games are mostly crap so I do gamefly and it lets me get caught up on some older games that I never got around to. Then after awhile I can try some of the newer games when they become available and not forced to buy crap games.

I buy all my games and games I have interest in, I pre-order and buy on launch even though 9/10 I won't get to them right away.

I used to rent, now I just research and buy.

So  much simpler to me, than getting the game you do not even want to play.

I think is better to rent  shit games just to get the platinum and buy those titles you can play online over and over again, like black ops 2.

I haven't rented a game since the days of the Genesis and SNES. 

 

Most of my collection is digital. I have around 35 disc based games for consoles (PS, PS2, PS3 & PSP) I lost count of my digital titles, they number somewhere around 130. I stopped buying used games a year or two ago. The pricing on amazon for a new game is usually better than the used games at Gamestop, and I'm very satisfied with the sales and instant game collection on PS+.

I don't rent because I usually play a game for an hour or two and then come back to it a few days/weeks later. It would make it useless to rent.

I always buy so I can play the game in my own time.

If I rented I would be trying to rush the game before having to send it back

Sometimes I rent games just to see if it's worth buying or not, but it depends on the game. Those that I'm sure I'll enjoy I buy straight away.

I buy the games I want to play over and over again.  I rent the games that I can finish in a short time and don't really feel like playing more than once.  It's an even mix.

I only buy games or get them from PS Plus or rarely borrow from a friend or relative.

I tend to buy my games. I will rent if it is a super easy game that I can blast through and know I won't play it again after I finish it.

I'm more than happy to buy a game and support the company but if I've already played it or know there's very little replay I lean more towards renting.

I buy most of my games.  I've signed up to LoveFilm a few times when I get the 3 months for 1 thing.. but most of the time I usually only get games that are at the bottom of the list.. it was very rare whenever I got new games.  Think the only new games I ever got from them were Under Defeat HD and Dragons Ball Z HD Collection.
