Why Renting PS2 Games Online is Better

The PlayStation 2 video game console is one of the most popular game consoles in the world today. Although there are consoles that are more advanced than the PS2 game console, it still remains as one of the most widely played game consoles and has an incredibly wide range of games and game types which can be played on it.

But all these games cannot be accessed at a video game store. The only way to find the wide variety of games is to go online since most stores no longer keep all PS2 games. Buying a PS2 game can be expensive, especially if you have to buy them online and pay for things like shipping. So instead of wasting your hard earned money, you can now rent them.

Most people rent PS2 games from stores that usually do not have a good collection. There are a lot of problems that come along with renting from a store. Waiting for someone to return a game which has already been rented out is one of the worst problems you can have with a rental store. Another Big problem with rental stores is the shortage of variety. Most rental stores do not keep old games which you might want to try out. The collection is bad as it is and on top of that you have to deal with grumpy clerks. Late fees are also a horrible problem when it comes to dealing with game rental stores. Sometimes you may not have the time to finish a game before the deadline and you end up wasting a whole lot of money if you plan on keeping the game even after the deadline.

All these problems of renting from a video store can be avoided by renting PS2 games online. It is so much more convenient and you will find an endless variety of game titles that. An even better thing about renting online is having a number of titles in your possession at one time. This definitely cannot be done with a normal video game rental store.

If you rent video games online you will no longer have to pay late fees. Online video game rental allows you to keep a title for as long as you want as long as you have paid the subscription fee for that month.

As you can see, renting online will not only save you money, but will also offer you with an infinite collection of titles that will have you playing till you drop. Its an easy process when it comes to subscribing and you wont have to pay for anything after that.

New Video Game Releases Not Living Up to the Hype?

I do not know how many times it has happened. I get home, the excitement to play a new game I just bought overshadowing the fact that I just handed over excessively much of my hard-earned cash to buy it, and tear into the package. I pop the game in, and watch with giddy anticipation as the title screen loads up. After a brief instruction on how to play the game, I FINALLY get into the meat of it and start really playing. Slowly a cloud starts darkening over my excited “new game mood” as I start to come to a slow and painful realization – this game is terrible.

It can happen for lots of reasons, of course. Maybe the graphics are horrible and the trailers on TV and the internet was not actual game play. Maybe the controls are downright broken and controlling the thing is a test of patience and frustration. Maybe the story is laughably bad (or missing altogether), or the voice acting is cringe inducing. No matter what the reason, it all comes down to one simple point: I just paid WAY too much for something I do not ever want to see again.

So what am I supposed to do? I cannot take it back to the store and just tell them “this game is horrible, take it back.” I could take it to a used game store, but there I would only get a fraction of what I paid for it and usually I would have to trade it in (along with some of my other games) for another game. What is to say I will not go home with that one and have the exact same thing happen? Suddenly my initial investment is getting more and worthless.

Which is bad, because games are just getting more and more expensive? With huge blockbuster titles raking in billions of dollars in revenue, I am getting a little sick of having to guess at which ones are actually going to be worth the money. It is like playing roulette every time I walk into the electronics section of a department store.

Of course, it is not as if I am going to give up gaming altogether. When you find a great game, it is totally worth it, but more and more that is like finding a diamond in the rough. It would just be nice if there were an option that did not involve me having to make a guess each and every time I need a new game to play.
