GameFly is a long-running service from the company of the same name that lets you rent DVD movies and video games over the Internet. All the classic benefits of rental are here: try a video game in its entirety before you buy it or watch a movie and then decide if you want to add it permanently to your collection. As we'll discuss below this is how GameFly is best used.

What Does And Doesn't Fly

Obviously with a digital rental service there's no risk of building up late fees and equally no need to worry about wading through rain and snow to bring back your rental of choice. What you pay for is exactly what you get. This has advantages and disadvantages but overall it's best for both consumer and company. GameFly provides a few other perks that make the service better too: you can keep games or movies that you've currently rented if you're willing to pay for them and the app's catalogue provides a great deal of information on both new and archived games and movies.

An Easy Play

Overall GameFly is a rental service not just a place to buy games. If you see any value in renting movies or games this is one of your best and only options in the modern day and it's available right from home.
