Didn't they say this about the floppy disk too? I don't remember, I still have backups from the 90's on those things that run fine still, and all the data is still on it. That said the hardware to run a floppy disk is becoming a bit harder to find, not impossible, just harder.
I don't always play video games, but when i do I prefer to do it in 36 hour marathons.
The only reason a disk would break is if you took poor care of it. Digital games, OTOH, go the way of the dodo the instant it becomes unprofitable for the server it's contained on to be maintained. In five years, you will not be able to buy Sonic CD for Xbox 360, while the original Sega CD version will still be floating around on ebay.
Your favorite game will always be underrated. Their favorite game will always be overrated.
