    Check out this EXCELLENT website!

    Finish a game (or DVD, VHS, CD or book), list it on the site and someone will ask you to ship it. You get online points when you do. Then ask another member to ship you anything you see in the listings. It's free to participate, so check it out. I signed up two games and six movies so far.

    And when you sign up, put "JoeBlow"" as your referral's name and I'll get a few free points =).

    The only hitch is this: If I swap any game which uses a CD Key to verify online play (e.g. BF1942, UT2003), its likely someone else still has a copy on their hard drive and is using the same key. So the key is blocked and online play is not possible with the game.

    So I would recommend with any swapping/2nd hand game service, you only get single player games, or games which don't have online CD Verification systems.

    Hmmm... good point. Still, the selection of 1-player PC as well as a ton of console games is pretty nifty.
