    I remember going to a blockbuster once around 2004 or something when I was about 4. It was such a weird experience. There was absolutely not a single soul in the building other than one dude behind the counter. Kinda weird when I think about it. That was one of my first memories

    I think I miss Blockbuster... but we still have FamilyVideo and I haven't stepped foot in that place in years. Are we really missing anything?... other than a bit of nostalgia? The Blockbusters in my town are gone or look like some shit out of Jurassic Park. Before they went out, I was buying movies and games from them for $.50-1.00 and I still have them, just no use for them now :(

    I remember when my Blockbuster closed. I didn't understand why. I loved it there so much as a kid. They were having a huge sale of everything since they were closing and I ended up buying the entire Avatar: The Last Airbender cartoon. That's all I have left of my poor blockbuster. Now it's a hardware store.

    Blockbuster was really a part of my childhood. I was mostly strung along by my dad when we as a family went to get movies to rent, but I remember way up past 2005ish getting movies and games from there until they closed one day out of blue, me forgetting that we did that. Brick and motor is so old fashioned and non-profit nowadays, but even if it's awkward I love face to face interaction.

    Digital online services are garbage as shit now think of it. Most require a subscription which blockbuster did also, BUT. Netflix, Hulu, Amazon all have either exclusive rights to SHOWS not movies that only keep money coming in. Most of these streaming services have mostly GARBAGE or a couple semi decent movies. Blockbuster on the other hand? They had all the brand new movies right on the one side of the wall. A multiple variety of movies sections left and right, don't even include videogames. The experience got people off the lazy couch to get some input of what to watch tonight with the family. That in of itself is sad. I don't deny some benefits to netflix. I just remember a lot more variety and sections to choose from. Netflix swears after its subscription increase there would be more and better movies, yet i've yet to see really any improvement. It's sad Rip blockbuster come back.

    Growing up my family mostly used Redbox and Netflix (back when they mailed you the movies). We went to a Blockbuster when it was shutting down and we bought dozens of movies on the cheap. Still use Redbox.

    Very good video but was extremely surprised you didn’t also mention Redbox! Those guys we’re popping up at every corner drugstore and grocery, and we’re renting out movies much cheaper than Blockbuster. I remember as a kid seeing Blockbuster trying the same thing and creating their own personal “Redbox machines” and thinking to myself even then that it was so silly for them to even try considering Netflix was becoming more popular and Redbox already had a strong hold on the video rental market.

    Looking forward to your How Netflix took it's dirt nap video in a few years, Charlie. Wonder what's coming next, because streaming services are going to be spread so thin and expensive. Nobody is going to even remember which service the show they want to watch is on, and they're going to be paying twice what they used to for cable to get them all.

    I don't have the internet to stream things. I still use the Netflix DVD service and I get all my console games from Game Stop. Once the Netflix DVD service goes away, we will be stuck buying movies from the store or online depending on the age of the movie. I need these services and it's a shame to hear about them dying.

    I was born in 99 so I'm a bit late to the whole Blockbuster craze, but I do remember in the early 2010s when I lived in San Jose my mom and I went to a shutting down Blockbuster to browse and buy out the rest of what they were trying to sell off and even though I never really knew the place, I just felt this very strange and sad feeling of emptiness. The shelves picked clean and the employees just.... Ready to go, but not ready at the same time. It was very melancholy.

    I mostly rented VHS tapes, Genesis and SNES games at Blockbuster throughout the 90s. When DVDs came out I became obsessed with collecting instead of renting so never really rented DVDs from Blockbuster or Redbox. It felt WORSE doing so because DVDs were way more sensitive than VHS and since people are slobs youd likely get a scratched up DVD from Blockbuster that wouldn't even play.
