Anyone use lovefilm for game rentals?

First off apologies if this had been posted before.

I have been with lovefilm for game rentals for 3 years now and have used several types of subscription packages on what they over etc. I'am currently on there top package for 3 discs a month unlimited (one being a blu-ray).

Now blu-ray aside that's been great on getting what I want. I have my rental list for my games and have been "lucky" on getting what I REALLY wanna play about 5 times, recently getting MGS Rising and Alien CM (booo).

This obv depends on what you wanna play, now I'm not saying lovefilm are bad, I mainly use it as I can't always afford the 40+ for a game that potentialy I could hate and I have been sent a lot of games that I generally liked to play and had my eye on and some of them I glad I didn't buy therefore saving money.

Does anyone else use lovefilm and please let me know on your experience with them

I used them in the past a couple of times and have never had a issue with them. The rule is; you get what you're given.

It's that simply. If you want a new release, you have to take into mind that there will also be a lot more people wanting that game and they'll only have a set amount to send out. So it's luck of the draw. I've been lucky sometimes and others I haven't.

Overall, I was happy with their services and can't complain!

I totally agree, that's why I've been lucky in the past. I think that's why a lot of people complain and unsubscribe etc

One thing I forgot to add is that if theses a game that you REALLY wanna play then add separate rental lists with just that game on. Apparently it works but takes a little longer to get by a day or two

You mean 3 discs at a time unlimited rentals

I'm on the 2 discs at a time unlimited rentals (not games), including instant.

They are great, post DVD's on a Monday, new ones Wednesday, post Thursday morning new ones Saturday.

I emailed them last due to people being able to rate a film that's not even released in the cinema, and they said they can't stop it but give me a bonus DVD

I may do the games one soon, only for Specs Op The line and 007 Legends as they are short to finish the story in a month, so 5 extra, then revert back to my package of 9.99 a month.

It looks like they offer a better deal than GameFly. I tried to sign up for their 30 day trial but it wouldn't recognize my postal code. :-/

I've been with lovefilm for a few months now and I have no complaints really. I'm impressed with how quickly they send you games but just lately I haven't been receiving games on my list which are high priority even though they are older titles. Sometimes this works well though when I get a game I wasn't sure about but end up really liking.
