    Boomerang are great when the game you want is available

    I recommend boomerang aswell, you can keep the games on rent for aslong as you want.

    Don't think there are actually many other options these days. Be interested myself to see if anyone knows any others who are good

    yes like to know the best places to rent.

    I used to use Lovefilm but it appears they don't do games anymore.

    I still miss Blockbuster. Friday after school you'd usually find me in Blockbuster renting a new release PS1 or N64 game - or grabbing a cheap ex-rental.

    Lovefilm was great, but I wouldn't see the sun for days because of it.

    I fear that if I was to ever subscribe to another game rental service then I would become a hermit again.

    Boomerang seems awful expensive. You could preorder most games then sell them and it would work out cheaper than paying £11 for a new rental

    Buy cheapest preorder/deal or flubit if possible (if amazon has a £40 or below price) you'll pay £33-39 then sell to cex for £32 cash within 3 weeks.

    I've essentially rented some game for almost nothing doing this for awhile.

    ​Depends if you're wanting the new releases or not.

    I got such a lot of titles to catch up on.
    That their £4/M (believe it was £3.99) would let me rent any title that's been out for longer than 6 months.

    But I think the best option is the £15/M , but go half with a friend who lives local. Rent a game each, split the bill down the middle (£7.50/M).

    Never even knew game rental still existed.

    Usually I agree but this time I don't, the op asked a question which the answer was provided, your way gives you 3 weeks to complete 1 game and then sell it, does it work? Yes, will the op be able to do that as if it was renting? No.

    ​Yeah yeah. More like trying to rent out 18 rated Porkys when you were only 14

    Boomerang are superb, if it wasn't for rentals I would of wasted my money on watchdogs 2 and mafia 3 and never got to play the excellent Titanfall 2 and battlefield 1.
