Nope. I buy digital so I don't have to keep discs/external media around.

You can play games on these things? Someone should start a business around that.

Why are these polls always filled with incredibly bad jokes? Are they even jokes?

I backup every game to an external hard drive as soon as it is finished downloading just so I dont have to re-download it again if I want to reinstall in the future (this is paticularly handy when heavily modding a game screws up your game and the only way to fix is a fresh install). Besides the best speed I have ever got on steam is 1mb/s due to my crappy internet so having to wait for games like max payne 3 to download is a nightmare.

I do have a backup of all the serial numbers of all of my games. A notepad file saved in 3 different locations. HD, SD, and a flash card.

No. I don't see the point since Steam is here for the forseeable future - by the time it's dead we'll have moved on to other things anyway.

Physically on an external HDD. It's currently holding at 559GB, with some games I don't care for removed, and some games that are just so tiny not included.

Good for giving to friends, too.

The best course of action is to just get the information you need, then get out while you're still alive. - destroy everything on GameFAQs

I back up the save files which are located in the steam folder.
