    Online rental is probably your best bet. Game rentals are expensive at about $8 for the 5 day rental, plus of course the gas of running back and forth from the store.

    With Gamefly you and not locked into any sort of contract, you get to keep it until you want to return it, you can purchase it if you like it and want to keep it all for $22.95 a month. Which is less then 3 game rentals at Blockbuster. So if you get 2 games, keep them for a while then get two mre that month it would be well worth it.
    I actually though about it myself but i have Blockbuster online for my movies so i get 2 free game rentals a month already. Then the few i actually like i buy either new or get a used copy.

    Go with Gamefly,I signed up about 8 days ago.Rented Madden took 2 days to get to my house,sent it back out and now their sending me Bioshock.The first month is 8.95,after that its only 15.95(one game out at a time).It saves you alot of money instead of renting at Blockbuster for like $10 a game.Its a great service :D

    Depends what you like. There are a lot of good 360 games like:
    Rainbow Six Vegas
    Tiger Woods 07
    Forza 2
    Vampire Rain
    F.E.A.R.
    Call Of Duty 2 & 3
    Condemned
    Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2
    Dirt
    Dead Or Alive 4
    Splintercell Double Agent
    Lost PLanet i have heard is good
    The Darkness i have heard good things about
    Saints Row was alright
    Dead Rising is alright

    and quite a few others. Really depends on your personal taste. Look at some games, read some reveiws and narrow it down a bit.

    So the thread starter asks, What do I do for games?

    I rescue all the under 18 years of age runaway girls I can find. Usually a good reward out for them. Best place to start looking - Las Vegas Blvd.
