    I remember a blockbuster near the house I've lived in all my life. Went there once, went again when it became a Halloween store, and now I occasional go for pollo loco.

    im not gonna look for it now, but i still have the last vhs tape i ever rented from there... "SLC punk" starring mathew lilliard... i hate movies that constantly break the fourth wall (ferris bueller style) but i still have it in a closet for some reason...
    another great example is kodak - kodak invented the digital camera, and then doubled down on film...
    but the best brick and mortar/cyber fail paradigm was montgomery wards - they were the only game in town for mail order products in america for over a goddamned century - you could order whole houses and cars and shit through their catalog - but they were spending money on their mall stores when they could've been transforming those catalogs into a website for a fraction of the cost - they could've been Amazon...

    Might just be one of those self conjured memory deals but i vaguely remember Blockbuster also trying to compete with Redbox for a little bit. I swear as a kid i saw a machine at a store that looked like a Redbox but was Blockbuster branded. I say it might be self conjured tho bc i kept expecting you to bring it up and you didnt.

    I think GameStop is losing money is because they don’t wanna pay a littl extra for return games and people would rather get the game online cheaper or from another place who would give more like independently ran game shops

    I never did the research, I just always assumed Redbox was the killer of block buster.
    I remember after Redbox started and got popular seeing Blue box? Wasnt that owned by Block Buster? Another example of them trying to copy cat an idea too late.

    i really liked netflix back in the day
    in 2004 or 2005 i dont remember really well, we stopped going to blockbuster forever and never went back because of netflix
    my dad and mom got 2 dvd's in the mail at a time and me and my sister got 2 dvds in the mail, so i just added games to the list for my dvd
    it was pretty sweet

    I still miss Game Crazy. It was way better than Gamestop. Unfortunately it was dragged down with Hollywood Video.

    I hated Blockbuster. It's the reason why my local video store, "Downtown News amd Video" closed down (Rip Downtown News and Video 1986-2003). Blockbuster felt so artificial and emotionless for a video store. I don't really see why people miss Blockbuster so much, since there still are a few local video stores left (as little as there are). So it's not like when Blockbuster died, that every video store died.

    Only 22, but I definitely remember the “no more late fees” advertisements. To this day, there is a Family Video bike-riding distance from my house.

    I'm late but whatever. Blockbuster was so much better than Redbox. Redbox was alright if u were the first to the box that day. Otherwise every other disc is gone. Blockbuster was superior in games as well. They had more than 1 or 2 copies of popular games unlike redbox. RIP Blockbuster.

    Family Video was better because they had a hidden porn section. I would sneak back there as a teenager. I was caught many times.
