    Back in August, i went to the 9/11 memorial museum over here in NYC and in one part of the museum where you can view found items left by those who had perished i found someone's old mostly burnt Blockbuster card over there.

    I think the earliest memory I have is from a goddamn block buster. The fondest one to, renting a movie with my dad back in simpler times. I live 2 hours away from the last blockbuster. I have a pilgrimage to go on.

    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.

    Hey you forgot to talk about how computers got fasterand much better than they were in people or just illegally downloading movies on their computers taking from Blockbuster.

    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.

    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.
