      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.

                          I actually just found my Blockbuster Membership Card today so I had to search it up. I legit miss everything about it. Netfix, Hulu and basically anything like it is a joke. Its not even a good representation of what the film industry is and has to offer its viewers. its like a selfie with a filter. Not really all there.

                                It’s a Friday night and you’re own the way to blockbuster to get your favorite movie or game, plus snacks.... best feeling ever. Let’s not forget movie gallery.

                                  Netflix has Stranger things and like 3 good movies (Raiders of the Lost Ark, Men in Black and Spider-Verse) All the MCU and Disney movies there are probably leaving soon because Disney+ is coming out very soon.

                                                        I miss the feeling of going into a Blockbuster and browsing the films, talking to the staff and picking up a couple of films that you might not necessarily buy. I wish it came back as there's a place for both in today's world.

                                                          I have mixed feelings...My sister and brother-in-law used to own a video store and Blockbuster put them out of business. But years later, I did like how large and bright the stores were, how you could always find the movie you wanted because there were so many copies, the variety of snacks they had and just feeling that overall good mood vibe you felt as you picked out a movie that would become part of a fun evening ahead. We need stores like that in communities now that all the bookstores like Borders are gone as well.

                                                            I love this store. I would travel to Bend Oregon, just to see a Blockbuster one more time. It was a huge part of my life and i have very fond memories of Blockbuster
