Well If the game are good I'll but a physical copy but mostly I limit myself to about 1 game per year because where I live its expensive to buy a physical copy of a game.

I just remembered, I also bought the StarCraft 2 expansion last year and it seems that all that was on the disc was a code to unlock the game for download. If I recall, I don't remember data files being on the disc. When I entered the code the unlock the game, it proceeded to download game files. Pretty much paid for a disc with a code in it, if I remember correctly.

No local stores sell physical copies in Manitoba so no I don't.

Someone will upload games on internet. As a social being, human needs lot of money to buy this and that. So I think it will be wise to keep your money for something more important than bought a physical copy of game that you can get it for free in internet. Download it and don't forget to say thanks to the uploader.
(Personal opinion, please don't mind)


Are you saying you encourage pirating?

If it has a Collector's edition yes. If not, no.

Do they even sell those anymore? The only boxed PC games I see in stores are those 300 in 1 games or those nancy drew's bejewled games. I think maybe I've seen TES collection, but that's it.

Very rarely and usually only if it's a Collectors Edition I want. The only 2 games I bought a physical box for this is Reaper of Souls CE and Midway Arcade Treasures Deluxe.

I always do when I can, but there have been a significant mishandling of physical support where I live. Much to my dismay.

I only get physical copies if it is some kind of special edition.
