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!

I've rented plenty of games from Blockbuster. Some Digimon trading card game, some hot wheels game, and other stuff.

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).

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.

I will never forget signing for membership at Blockbuster to rent Mega Man 3. Rented games all the time from there for the NES and SNES.

To blessed to be stressed.
I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

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.

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.
