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).

Used to rent games and video alike at Blockbusters all the time with mum's subscription card but the store near me has since long gone and is now a funeral service building... Oh how times have changed...

Yep I had one like that too just right around the corner from where I lived. In fact before the big chains were around thats where I use to rent my NES games from and in fact its where we rented the NES from a few weeks before the NA release. Now that building is a church but every time I walk by it I am reminded of that video store.

In the olden days, I rented Mario Kart 64 for the Nintendo 64. After that? Not really, I never went inside a rental store ever again.

Not as if I could any more. Most Blockbuster shops and other such businesses went under in recent years.

Used to go to Blockbuster all the time. Not anymore unfortunately.

Why do people point to their wrists when asking for the time, but don't point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?

Holy crap, the fact that this can even be a question makes me realize how old I am. It was such a major part of childhood, it'd be like asking people of this generation if they've ever gone online.
