The number one service for game rentals is GameFly. Gamefly has been around longer than most other video game rental services, and they are currently the largest online service. They have quick shipping from the West Coast, with Fast Return for all return shipments.
There is a 10-day free trial for this service, for 2 games out.
Next up, in second place is RentZero. This company is an up-and-coming rental service with great potential. They ship from Texas, so this service is a great alternative for those of us not on the West Coast. Rent Zero also ships manuals with their game rentals, and even lets you trade in your games for decent prices.
*** UPDATE *** Beware of this company - do not give them your money. They have failed to respond to emails and phone calls, and numerous gamers have contacted me saying they never received any games. Check out Game Fly instead.
There is a 14-day free trial for this highly recommended service.

The third best service is GotaPlay. This is a newer service, with a very good area of coverage of the continental U.S. They have a total of 6 distribution centers. If you are having trouble getting shipments in a timely manner, GottaPlay could be the ticket for faster rentals. East Coast gamers should consider this service.
*** UPDATE *** This one is looking sketchy as well. Their links do not even work for now. I recommend checking out Game Fly instead.
They offer at 10 day money back guarantee.
