I would like both in a sense. I'm fine with digital but let me backup the data on a HDD somewhere. Pirates are gonna crack it anyway so let people who pay have their own backup. I don't want to rely on some company that may be out of business in a few years to keep it on their servers forever.

It's the tactile experience that want to have with my purchase. From the moment of breaking that seal and hearing the first snap as the case opens, to popping the disc away with your thumb & finger and watching the light bounce off the back of the disc. Then there is the scent of the ink from the manual when you thumb through the pages looking at the artwork they contain.
There are other habits too such as not getting thumb prints on the data side of the disc, so we end up pinching them with the whole and outer edge even though we know they will never really damage them.
It may seem like a small thing but it's the silly rituals like that comes with having a physical medium that would be lost if we went for digital distribution.
