I saw a reply to a gamefly article awhile back of a person who was disappointed in their service. He pasted his games queue with nearly every game at long wait or short wait. I just went though and hit Rent on every game that looked marginally interesting to me and came up with the following.

So… 2 games at Long wait, 1 at Short wait, and tons at Now. (Plus a handful of games that aren’t released yet…)

Maybe its just that they have a limit to how many copies of an individual game they have, and thus games that are mildly lame but popular are harder to get than rare games that less people know about. Take Suikoden 3 for example. $30-$50 range for good quality games on half.com. Mercenaries though, that runs for $17-20 brand new on half.com, is Long Wait… At least BOF2 which is Long Wait is worth it. $40 minimum on Half.
