Note that I'm counting only purchases, no freebies or promo games. I do not own any retail eShop games personally but may or may not grab Animal Crossing. I'm hesitant due to the lack of a unified account system though.

I have Order Up!! which was a retail game, but that's it. I guess all the VC games could be considered 'retail' games too?

I've bought Luigi's Mansion and Fire Emblem off the eShop, but only because I couldn't find them in stores. Turns out it's really convenient to have games on my SD card. I plan on going digital for all 3DS games from now on.

I do, but only because they didn't have any physical copies of Fire Emblem left and I still wanted it.

It's funny because I don't have any incentives for all digital besides no sales tax (CA is tax free digital apparently), but I'd gladly pay tax to guarantee my games are still available for me if my system goes pfft.

I also live in a city where everything is abundantly in stock. I constantly see multiple copies of Fire Emblem. Come to think of it, the only game I haven't seen on a store shelve is Virtue's Last Reward, which I had prerdered.

Sound like fate to me for you to go digital ;)

Paper Mario and New Super Mario Bros 2. I might get some others someday. I want a bigger memory card first.
