Oh come on! The best part about the mess that was Qwikster was the possibility of renting games from Netflix. Now they take that away from us too? That new season of Arrested Development better be amazing.

During today's earnings call with investors, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings announced that the company no longer plans to rent videos games along side DVDs and Blu-rays. The video game rental plan was part of the disastrous Qwikster spin-off business that ultimately crashed and burned.
