DRM made it pointless.

theres almost no reason to actually own a physical PC game because after using the code theres next to nothing you can do with it.

I only buy physical if the price isnt any different than digital and the file size is big. Having Tera on CD saved me hours of frustration I wouldve suffered having to deal with their terrible launcher.

I am forced to buy physical copies every now and again because of Comcast's data cap.

Physical copies of PC games are worthless.


when a game is like 40gb having the physical is good because you can install straight from the dvd, and it loads direct to steam
i think it's nice

And downloads a 40gb patch.

Other than Diablo III/the MoP expansion for WoW, I haven't bought a physical copy of a PC game for quite a while. It's just as well though as aside from Blizzard games it typically amounts to a DVD(s) in paper sleeves with maybe a "quick start" guide on a card and nothing more.

I only buy physical copies if it is a CE. My wife and I collect and display them.

I never buy physical on PC but if I have the option I always do on consoles.

I do, but it's getting harder and harder as fewer places stock them :(

I refuse to use steam, I'm not interested in digital downloads.
