Physical or Digital games?

Post by Megan »

Do you prefer physical games or digital ones?

Me personally I like both, though lately I have been buying more digital. Its nice cause its fast and you don't have to worry about keeping track of copies and takes less physical space.

I do still buy physical, though it depends on the game. Like a Zelda game? I'll buy the physical. It just depends how much I like it or think I'll like it.

There have been a few digital only games I wished had physical copies such as the Grandia HD Collection for Switch. I totally would of bought that. One of my favorite game series.

So what about you guys?

I'm a fan of physical copies, anything that means I don't need the internet to play a game :P

I recently wanted to play a game with a friend over but couldn't because the steam servers were down... it was a game I could play locally and was incredibly frustrating.

I'm also a retrogamer and have a large collection of physical game media from cartridges to discs to even a few hu cards for the mastersystem genesis addon.

but I definitely lean more towards physical media, I like the sense of weight and presence a physical game has when you put it into a console, the nice cases, even more when there's nice boxart and stuff, like my copy of quake III for linux which came in a metal tin 8-)

I always liked having the nice box art too, and the manual art too. Though sadly new games don't come with those anymore. I still keep some of the old games ones.

Well the outer world's did, I got a physical copy when it was available, as did red dead redemption 2 and watchdogs 2. But you are right, games don't have nearly the packaging they once did, usually going with plastic cd cases instead.

Man I remember the Lunar remake sets. Those were so awesome. Same with Arc the Lad one. Came with so many goodies.
