    Simple question. I rent them when i'm not sure whether i'll like them or not, or if they are short games that have little to no replay value (Mirrors edge).

    It depends what system it's for.

    I pretty much stopped renting games after Nintendo 64.

    I read a lot and watch a lot of gameplay videos first.

    If it's for the computer I will "test it on my rig" and buy it if I like it before getting into it.

    I haven't rented a game for quite a while. My Blockbuster sucks at getting new games in so I don't even bother.

    I watch alot of gameplay videos and read reviews. I used to hire them out in NZ. I could get 3 games for $6 NZD (About $5 AUD, and nearly $10 American) for a week. But over here in Aussie all the new games are $10 AUD for 3 days.

    I only rent. I don't have $60 to throw away, only to stop playing that game a few weeks later.
