Chipped discs can cause, 1. A disc to not play correctly, 2. Heavier labor on your disc drive (especially Blu-ray), and 3. Lower resale value on the game.
GameFly discs being chipped is not an "exaggerated" or isolated occurrence. It happens all the time. Does it happen every time? No, some people have great experiences. Others buy 20+ discs and get maybe one or two in good condition. That's a problem, and every potential buyer here deserves to know as such. Saying "kk, we talked about it now stop" doesn't work, because it's an ongoing issue and newcomers to the thread deserve to know the facts. Anyone who doesn't agree with that can complain all they want, but the topic is going to persist whether they like it or not. Or at least until GameFly stops sending damaged products.
If that bothers you, then don't read the thread. It's rather selfish to tell people to stop talking about something because you don't want to have to see it.
I agree. Every time I order a new game from them I usually mention on here whether or not it has chips. I do get frustrated with the overreactions like "Gamefly is the devil, they sent me a chipped disc" or "you're PS3/360 is gonna blow up the second you put in that chipped disc" or ChunLi, whom I should probably just ignore as he's an obvious troll.
