      Renting games.
      Netflix and other streaming platforms are vastly superior to rentals, but the technology for streaming games is only now catching up enough to approximate what you get with a physical/downloaded copy.

      @NPC 33331 You always had a choice not to buy the snacks you can a bottom from like A convenient store are a grocery store and to be perfectly honest it's online that ends up having less selections from what I've noticed I could go into blockbuster find everything I wanted The only reason they went out of business is the one thing I didn't like about them is that they Allied to their customers about no more late fees but as far as finding things you want it's the opposite of what you would think online has no selections even though it should

            Funny they told them to convert or they were going to open other BB stores in the area to try to take their business. I'm sure it was a good deal, but Im curious if it would have even worked.

                Blockbuster relied on its customers to bring rentals back late so it could exploit the late payment fees, instead of people making out that blockbusters was all well and wonderful, it wasn't.

                      The best plus with blockbuster was that it had almost every single movie you were in the mood to see. Redbox only has newer movies and Netflix only has a certain selection as well. Blockbuster literally had every movie imaginable in every genre.

                            It always feels like the end of the world when we lose something special. I wish that feeling wasn't present. I find it toxicating.

                              I hope that I could go to the last Blockbuster before it goes under.

                                                                I worked at Blockbuster here in Philly from 2001 to 2004, and when he said 'it still smells the same,' my mind went right back to all those years ago. I actually never thought I'd say this, but I miss it. Maybe it's the nostalgia that I miss. I sure don't miss the mediocre pay, but I miss my team and my regular customers. We knew what movies they liked. I miss walking down the aisles with a customer to help them find a good movie. Man...
