Nope, never have, and it doesn't seem like something I'd ever be compelled to do.

If there's a game I'm really looking forward to, and have the money to do so, I'd rather pre-order (that way I can go on my own time).

Once, when gamestop was doing a mid-night release for Super Smash bros Brawl. That is the last known game I can remember being all gitty gitty to play right away. Got home after 2am and fell right asleep. Didn't even make it to the console.

A dying animal struggles, thrashes and howls in protest as its life torn from it. To see this in action, watch Animal Planet. The same thing happens when a video game is or isn't released. To see this in action, stay here.

nope, I've reached a state where it is hard for me to stay awake past 10 P.M. since I have to wake up before 7 A.M. since I was 13....

goodbyes are a sad part of life but for every end there's a new beggining so one must never stop looking forward to the next dawn

Nope, and I never will. Sounds like it would be miserable.

Nope. I have no interest in attending midnight launch events for a game that I can just buy from a normal shop the next day. Besides, I'm quick enough at beating games that I'll probably end up getting further in a shorter time span than most 'launch night' buyers anyway, so it's rarely much of a business concern.

Question #488: Have you ever rented anything from a video store?

I know this might seem a bit odd this question but I was talking to some of my sons friends about video stores and I was amazed at how many of them never rented anything from a video store, so I thought this would be a good question to ask.

My answer: Every Saturday morning after watching my favorite Saturday morning cartoons ( Yeah another thing that is giving away my age) my dad would take my brother and I to a local video store to rent a game for the weekend while he rented a movie for him and my mom. Later on during the PS era I would rent games along with movies from Blockbuster and Hollywood Video. Now I dont anymore cause my town doesn't have a video store at all, Hollywood Video left a few years ago and the only Blockbuster in my town shut down about six months ago. So now I rent from Netflix and Gamefly.

Heck, half of the N64 games I played were because I rented them (Paper Mario, Super Smash Bros, Mario 64, a couple Mario Party games, Quest 64, Bomberman 64, and probably others).

When our video stores shut down, they sold their inventory cheap, so I picked up Metroid Prime 2: Echos & Samurai Warriors 2.

P.S. - since you mentioned it, maybe the next question could be about everyone's favorite Saturday morning cartoons as a kid?

Marisa- That's a definite no.

My Mom used to have a Blockbuster subscription or whatever. It's how I found out about the sublime Star Wars video game series Star Wars BattleFront, and LEGO Star Wars.

If we've gotten into an argument, it's okay. I'm probably not holding a grudge against you. Why? Because I like you!

Nope. I was never into renting. I either bought or borrowed movies/games.

Back when Hollywood Video was still a thing, my family used to rent movies from there fairly often. I sometimes got to rent games from them too, though the last I did that was sometime during the PS2/GCN/Xbox gen.

Yes, I did get rentals before. I used to live near a really cheap video rental store and they rented VHS kids movies for like $0.89. I would only get Pokemon, Disney and Studio Ghibli movies... Good times.
Now I have my local library. Nothing beats free DVD rentals.

Yes, and it's an incredible pity that business model is virtually dead. I fondly remember a ma & pa rental place in the 80's. They had a popcorn machine with that terrific aroma, and the horror section filled with the most awesome VHS covers for terrible movies.

YES. Hollywood Video was the bees knees when I was 7. Wasting my parents cash on N64 rentals and movies was great. (Then again, we NEVER went to movie theaters).

I still do sometimes, there is an independent video games rental store in my neighborhood and the games are $5 to rent for a week.
