Gamefly Informative - The Straight-Up Truth about GameFly
Hey everyone, about a week ago I was looking around and ended up writing a comment on another person's gamefly review. But then I thought, why not expand that into my own review?
My kids are getting into gaming, which is fine by me as long as their grades don't go down the tubes. We got them an xbox at the beginning of the summer, which was already quite a hit to the wallet. Looking at the cost of games, I told them straight up that they were going to have to rent games and maybe get one or two around Christmas. All this was well and good until they started coming home from the local video store with the most violent, disgusting games you can imagine. So I hopped online and did some research and then set up a gamefly account. Now when they want to rent a game (which is always), they have to go through me, since I won't share the account info with them. As such, GameFly is the best system of parental control I've seen so far.
Another major point of contention is the turnaround time. I've seen people claim that games can take too long to arrive; keep in mind that these are the same type of people who have towers of ancient pizza boxes stacked up beside their game consoles. My point is that if you're smart about it, you can always have a game in your kids' video game consoles, and another one in transit -- just use the fast return program and as soon as the post office scans it into their system you're free to order another one.
There are also all kinds of fun promotions that gamefly does, and there's the "Keep It" option, which we might do someday if the kids love a game that much. Anyway, sorry I'm rambling on here but I've seen so much negative stuff on this company that I thought it was time someone corrected all of that.
