      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

      Is that the last Blockbuster in the USA or the last Blockbuster in the world?

          Living in a rural town, I had Movie Gallery and went to it and had many memories just browsing the video games. It closed in 2010 and I have honestly missed it ever since.

                  They should get a videogame section. Business will skyrocket. Some of us still love our physical copies.

                            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...

                              Blockbuster was my favorite thing to do when it comes to renting VHS and video games. And now everything is digital and I found it very lazy.

Also, people are still talking about movies and recommend good ones to their friends. Now more people can afford watching films, even in poorer places and countries, so the conversation probably grew since the days of video stores.

                                                                                              • Hydden N. Plainsyght

I miss Blockbuster; I miss looking at videos, picking them up and reading them - deciding what I want to watch - having it in my hand. Trust me, you can learn a lot more about a movie from a DVD package than you will EVER learn from a RedBox or Netflix movie review or description.
