At the current moment, GameTap has close to 1000 games in its catalog. The vast majority of said games are for gaming systems that I don't own (and have no desire to), are far too old/rare to track down without great effort and expense, wouldn't work at all without some sort of system emulation/tweaking, or are titles that I wouldn't be willing to lay down money for specifically in the first place. And out of the titles on the service that I do own, several of them are in a form (specifically, the PS2) that I don't have access to at the moment. With my current plan, I'm paying $25 every 3 months (though I probably should change to the $85 a year option at some point) to access all of these games in one convenient catalog, as many times as I want and for as long as I want. An Internet connection is required? So what? This computer's always connected to the Internet anyway. And if GameTap completely folds someday, I won't have lost anything for the whole experience, since I've already gotten the chance to play several classic titles I never would have been able to otherwise. Frankly, I'm having a hard time seeing even one detriment to the whole thing.
