    Digital, for quickness, physical for collecting. Usually prefer physical.

    I like digital because you can't really harm it unless you try really, really hard to hack it or something. But I love physical as it's not dependent on being connected to the online service.

    Call me old fashioned but I do prefer to have the disc. Feels like added value.

    Mainly do PC gaming these days and buy all digital there. Consoles I still would rather have something physical. Plus I'm all about getting good prices on games and digital stuff on console just doesn't go on sale very often....

    I'm a fan of physical games myself, though for quick time-wasting games I don't mind digital

    I'd love a physical copy, but it'd be nice if i can play it without using the physical disc/bluray/etc

    I'm getting annoyed with how big the file size of modern games are becoming. Running out of storage space is an issue, also if you have slow internet or monthly data caps it can limit how many games you can download. Although nowadays, even if you have a physical copy, the game may still receive enormous patch updates which undermines the point of having a physical copy. There are advantages to digital copies but personally I like having a tangible library of games displayed on my shelf. Maybe a lot of that comes from nostalgia.

    Boxes with artwork and tangible goodies are really nice, but the convenience of digital is awesome.

    Can't beat physical, with booklets, artwork etc. I only have physicals of my favourites though.
