99% of all games on demand can be bought in a hard copy form for cheaper.

Before you comment on one of my posts, please research the Dunning-Kruger effect. Best game of all time: Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory. Gamefaqs mods are a joke.

I've never down-loaded a game, and I never will.
The day I am forced to down-load games will be the day I stop buying them.

It's perfectly fine if some people prefer to DL their games...but I prefer not to.
Choice is a GOOD thing.

I feel this way -- but sometimes the deal is so great I DO d/l -- but then if the game is amazing I am forced to buy it on a disc!

Like Beyond Good and Evil HD. And Outland -- both on this disc.

Yes but not exclusive to the games that were originally discs. I've also done it with games that were originally cartridges because I prefer physical over digital.

So, you refuse to download free games because they are downloads?

Also, please notice that download is a single, non-hyphenated, word.
