And I am unable to install the game to my hard drive, would it better for me to buy a new disc or buy the game on demand? I could see the benefits of getting the game on demand (not having to worry about damaged disks) but are there any drawbacks? Which would be the better option?

In most cases you can find a used copy of the game you're looking to buy for a lot less in physical form. On Demand is a bit of a rip off IMO.
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.

^ this. Check the pricing of both and see the on demand price is higher.

if the game cracked on its own the company should replace it free, thats how i replaced my copy of dark souls, even out of warranty. if you destroyed it, stop treating your discs like coasters

It all depends on the game. Orange box katamari, just cause 2, bully all cheaper on GoD than a physical copy. I love my digital games. Less discs to keep up with but it's not for everyone.

I agree, digital is awesome. I just got WWE All Stars through On Demand. I had it when it forst came out, but I haven't seen it in stores for a while now. That's another good thing about digital. You don't have to worry about it being out of stock.
