Videogame software has always been really expensive, and in our modern world, it's no different. Used games are sometimes cheap, though often not in good shape, and require a degree of risk. Renting a game is out of the question for anybody who wants to enjoy the game without a deadline hanging overhead. So how does one enjoy gaming without dropping masses of cash?
For example, I want to try out the new Game Boy Advance Star Wars game, but I hate renting and it may suck. In any event, it won't be cheap and that means that for now, I'm out of luck.
