Why I think the gamefly free trial needs to be longer

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I find that the majority of video games these days eat up a good amount of time. For example, when I first started playing World of Warcraft, it took me 2 weeks to decide whether or not I wanted to get a monthly subscription. And during those 2 weeks, I was pretty much playing every single day. I guess my point is that in order to really judge whether you like a video game, it can take some time.

Given this fact, I have no idea why the free trial for gamefly is only 30 days long. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Gamefly, it’s an online service that lets you rent out games and have them sent to your home. Now, don’t get me wrong, I appreciate that they give a free trial at all, as many online services won’t do that. It would be nice if the current trial of the Gamefly service lasted for a couple months. That might be asking for a lot, but I think more people would join the service if they have a chance to use it for a couple months first.

At one point Netflix wanted to get into the video game rental market. I personally would have liked to see this happen, but they abandoned those plans a few years ago. So for now we only have Gamefly. I don’t mind, because it’s a good service, but a little competition always helps to make all services raise their game.

With that said, I must admit they do have some good commercials, like the one below –
