I own 18 Wii U games. 6 on disc and 12 digital games. I like being able to download my games (and I have a super fast FiOS connection), but the prices should definitely be lower than they are.

physical. boxes, disks, .. i just prefer it. Wouldn't mind loading a physical disk onto the console into digital form though.

I could definitely go for that. In fact, if that option were available... I'd buy all my games on disc and still enjoy the benefits of digital.

I prefer physical games, mostly because I like the way they look on my shelf. However, I do enjoy buying games on Steam and such, as long as the prices are low.

I prefer physical copies of games in general, but I'll take digital copies when the price is right.

I'm old fashioned, I like to have physical copies of games, gives me the sense that I actually own them.

Besides I met my wife because my friend let her borrow a PC Engine game to translate for him lol

I met my wife the old fashion way... High school homecoming dance. That was... 3 children and 15 years ago. Lol. We regularly play video games together,
