      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.

      We as humans must do our duty to get rid of all face to face interaction. We must only rely on our electronics to ease feelings of loneliness and despair. Anything that is not maximally convenient and efficient shall be banished!

          I’ve wasted my whole night with my family scrolling on Netflix fighting over what to watch...

          That was never the case at blockbuster we actually rented it and watched it.

                        Blockbuster gave people that thirst of renting something before someone beats you to it

                            in the future, netflix will go to bankroup because you can have the movie, sitcom, serie, etc, you want in your brain without downloading or putting a finger on a electronic device

                                I've always dreamed about entering a Blockbuster with family or friends on a weekly basis. I don't even like Netflix that much, they never seem to have the movies I like.

                                  I feel like an old fart seeing this (as a kid, my head only went as far up as the third shelf at Blockbuster and Hollywood Video).

                                    Man I remember when I was little, staying at my grandmas house and she would come in the living room and say “ we’re going to blockbuster.” I was always so excited to go. Pick out the movies/ video games and getting the candy there, while spending time with her. That is one thing Netflix or Hulu or any other streaming service cant replace. The excitement of going to blockbuster with friends or family and making those memories. My grandma has passed about 3 years now but those are the times I cherish.

                                      As a zoomer I am very sad that my peers haven't been able to experience the fun of blockbuster. The excitement of seeing so many movies on one shelf. Opening a new DVD of a series you've never seen is a unique experience that only blockbuster has provided me with.

                                          Imagine what would happen if the video streaming service had a hand on Sandi's brain and make a video recommendation AI out of hers.

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.
