I want to get a game rental service, but I know there's quite a few out there.  From what I gather, Gamefly seems to be the best option so far...at least as far as the reviews I've read.

do any of you guys use it?

Thats what I use and they are pretty good, even better now that they have "Fast Retun" (they ship the next game as soon as the PO scans the one you put in the mail).

I've never had them ship a game as soon as the post office got it.  I don't even see how they could tell which game is in the envelope until they open it.

One thing I am not at all happy about with Gamefly is that it takes 5-6 days for a game to get to me in washington state from california.  That is a bit ridiculous.

I do like their "keep it" prices though.  I can get a brand new game for about 10-15 bucks less than it would cost at the store, and as soon as I do click the "keep it" button they start shipping me the box and manual for the one I bought, as well as the next game on my list.  I love getting the box and manual.  Of course, I usually won't see either for almost a week, but there isn't much I can do about that.

I actually went ahead and signed up.  The FastReturn thing has been working great.  I got an email saying, "We've shipped Half Life 2" before I got my "We've received Indigo Prophecy."  

That was pretty solid.  I'm happy so far...and yes, those "Purchase It" prices are pretty nice.
