I miss video rental stores Missing file >>1397

I miss physical media in general honestly.
Me too. Everything seemed more special then. While you can find almost anything that your average video store would carry online nowadays, renting a game or a movie felt like a much more significant experience.
Just being able to hold onto something, look at it, manipulate it in your hands is becoming a thing of the past. It's still possible, going for thrift or markets, or small time stores still gives that to you, but the whole rental aspect is sadly and truly dead.
>>477 This. I miss more when owning your movies/music was the norm, before streaming took over. Sure you can still buy physical CDs/DVDs, but nowadays those get released less and less. Also you have shit like Bluray that will outright refuse to play on certain devices... On the bright side we can now rip music from streaming platforms so I guess that's the next best thing?
I have a Family Video near me that's going strong ever since Blockbuster went bust.
>>831 The one where I live went out of business recently. It's sad, but I was glad it was able to hang on for so long. Some of my fondest early childhood memories include renting Super Nintendo games from a Family Video store.
