Do you buy physical for PC anymore?

Sometimes. After all, say you're getting games for christmas. if you buy them before hand, they're gonna be sitting in your library, rather than waiting for christmas to actually recieve them and open them.

Largely depends on price though too.

Only RTS games.

I have Age of Empires 1,2,3, Starcraft 1-2 and Company of Heroes as my only physical PC games.

Last one I bought was Diablo 3. I would be more interested in boxed copies if they weren't disadvantaged in every single way.

Hell yes, I still don't trust online transaction and I will actively avoid it, if I can help it.

yeah if it has stuff I want in it (TW1/2 and Skyrim), is way cheaper than digital, or is something that can be used used (well, almost everything, but especially the Sims games since you can grab the digital if the person before hasn't then sell it on >_>)

I don't, no

I get physical copies when I ask for games for Christmas or my birthday though.

Back in the day when I was a PC gamer, yes. Since building my gaming PC late last year, no. I built the PC with digital in mind so I don't bother. Although I did buy the Guild Wars 2 CE cause I wanted the giant Charr. But I already had the game.

As someone else said, i would if the prices were better. But here in Australia they never are. Last physical game i got was Diablo 3, because it was cheaper retail than it was from
