Some people like the box to be put on shelf


I'm that way for console games. I'd much rather have the disc over a digital copy. But for my PC, I prefer Steam/Origin. Couldn't tell ya why though.



same here, minus origin

Considering the prices, I'm perfectly willing to accept that the permanence of my purchases is only theoretical. Even in the unlikely scenario that Valve and Steam go down, would I really care about some old games I paid $7 for years ago? That's the average I've been paying for each Steam game.

Some people have an unhealthy obsession with retaining stuff.

if steam was only required for game you brought in their shop it's would not really bother me but I seen too many games sold on physicals cd/dvd also requiring it ... so before I actually had the internet I spent years having to check on the box to check if the games was requiring me to have the internet because of steam , origin and other similar online drm.

because people in tin foil hats see anything related to DRM and have to believe it's a bad thing, regardless of logic.
