If it's cheaper and/or a collector's edition, yeah. Otherwise all download.

Either for my collection (mostly older games) or if they're special editions. Blizzard is one of the only companies that still rolls out PC collector's editions and I do enjoy supporting them. The physical items are always pretty cool. Regret not buying Wings of Liberty CE.

Last one I bought was BF3, I would buy more, but my dvd drive broke. Planning on getting a new one to burn CDs though. Some cool PC only special editions come out for physical.

Well it's not as if there is any other way to actually buy a copy of the game. Unless you're using GOG.

Usually no, but I do have witcher 3 pc preordered at bestbuy. That's mostly because it's on a preorder sale (20% off regular price), I know cd p is going to give me a real physical copy with no drm bull, and it is very likely they'll give me a free gog copy with it.

Yes, I only buy physical games. A download-only game is like not owning the game to me. I completely ignore them even though I own them.

Che, no, it's almost strictly digital for me these days, but that's because pretty much the only source I have for games in-town is Walmart. And as we should all probably know, their PC Game Selection is... well... horrible. The cheepo console game shelves are much bigger than the PC game shelf.

Jedi still a console peasant due to the fact he even made this topic. PC Master Race has not purchased physical copies in a decade.

Last physical PC game I bought was FF14:ARR...and I regret that because it stopped me playing after Early Access was over, for a week, while I waited for the damn physical copy to arrive.


I'm not a huge fan of dld'ing games as my ISP is slow as hell, but it's still better than having to wait on the mail.

Depends on the game. I prefer box copies overall, but then there's steam... so, yeah.
