GameFly To Offer Unlimited PC Play Later This Year

If you want a quick and dirty view of the desires of gamers (and really, who doesn't?), there's no better source than the weekly stats that video game rental house Gamefly sends out. As you might have guessed, The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim tops the list of the most popular cross-platform titles for last week, followed by Saints Row: The Third and Batman: Arkham City. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3 continue their perpetual battle, fighting for the fourth most requested spot.

If you click the "Read More" tag, you'll be rewarded with a full, platform-by-platform breakdown of the most requested games from GameFly last week. It's so in-depth, you can even see what games are being rented for the GameBoy Advance! Neat!
