    physical is the way to go , it's the same thing with ebooks ... though i prefer digital games on pc (steam, they are cheaper) i like the console games to be physical because it just brings these nostalgic feelings with it
    also it looks cool and who doesn't have a gaming shelf with some nice collector's editions on it ?

    Physical copies mostly cause I like collecting things. Also cause in case the servers go down, like PSN did once, I will still be able to play them.

    I don't mind Digital Distribution on PCs, as there are painless methods of backing up / sharing game data across multiple systems.
    If consoles would make it as easy and convenient to do the same I may change my mind as far as the console space is concerned.

    Theres a certain infatuation associated with buying and unboxing a new game that digital usually can't provide.

    Or at least, its been that way for me for the longest time. With everything going to minimalistic packaging and small carts/DVDs/Blurays, that feeling as starting to diminish. I miss the days where games came in huge, brightly colored decorative boxes. Pokemon HeartGold won me over partially due to this very reason. (Nostalgia, the box, and the fact that its a fantastic game)

    I'm a collector so I can't get into the whole digital craze yet, very convenient yes but I love having the copies in my hand.

    I still buy physical copies for my consoles, digital all the way for PC with Steam (and maybe a bit of pirating). Digital is a pain in the ass waiting for the download on Australian internet though..

    I like both digital and physical. They both have their benefits definitely. With physical copies, you can lend your friend the game to try out; you can't do that with digital games, but the digital games are easier and faster for you personally to acquire.

    I am one of these who preffer digital copies. I remember the first year of steam, and formating a computer, was easier with it. In the past, I had to swap in cds and cds in order to build again my usual gameplaying collection, but after steam, just right click, install, and leave it all night.
