    Physical, but I'm so clumsy digital is probably a better idea (for the disc-based systems anyway).

    i miss old school cartridges... Having to blow into them to get them to work haha

    but on the plus side they were TANKS you could beat them to hell and theyd still work

    infact i have almost not old Game CD's but most of my cartridges for this very reason!

    I like having both because one can serve as a backup when the other fails.

    Depends. I do know Steam was the only way I could play Morrowind after a failed uninstallation, but that doesn't mean digital copies are my favorite.

    Physical is fine as long as I can back it up, but I prefer digital.

    I like a physical copy. I like the security of having the game in my hands. But with the recent unreadable cd tragedy im having my opinion may change.

    Digital for convenience sake, though I do prefer a hard copy, most of the time I can't get the same good deals on a physical copy that Steam offers for digital

    Since I grew up with physical discs and stuff and still refuse ot buy me a modern console like PS3 or XBOX 360, I certainly like physical ones more. Also, I'm collecting them, so I need something to hold in my hands, right

    I like Digital Copies so if my Computer goes down, I loose my CD's or anything like that I can log in and Download to my new Computer.

    I buy both Physical & Digital copies. Sometimes it depends on extras that come with either version on which one I buy. I prefer Physical copies though because I like to hold it in my hand and have it for re-installing, also for the game manual in the box. I have gotten used to over the years how everything is going over to electronic versions but I'm old fashioned and like hard copies of stuff. Paper & pen is a hard habit to break

    Blowing into the cartridges actually did nothing to get the game to work, everyone just believed that was it.


    I prefer physical copies just because you can loan them out to friends. Sharing is caring!
