I'm 100% digital since about 2015.

Why? Convenience or don't care about collecting?

My question is for all of you 100% digital.

100% Physical with the exception of Indies.

I can't imagine why somebody would buy a $60 Switch game as digital. Nintendo games hold their value very well. Switch has a very small harddrive.

Yeah, in terms of Nintendo, I don't play Nintendo much. I'm only interested in a few titles. So later on, maybe in 4 years, I'm thinking about picking up a Switch with the few titles I want and then sell them all after playing it.

I had a Wii U and since there were just a few titles, I ended up buying everything digital for convenience sake. But now I feel that I lost the used sale money.

More than anything, I like owning these products, I don't like the idea that someday a digital store may be shut down or a game gets taken down because licenses and not being able to get some of its digital only content without resorting to emulating.

Now sure, physical media may also fail someday, but I feel safer with that rather than with a digital copy.



I don't have a rule. It all depends on the game, franchise and price.

If I really trust the franchise, I usually buy digital whatever the price for convenience.

If I don't trust the game yet, like when pre-ordering a game that I don't know if I'll like it, I just buy physical, so I can return/re-sell.

When the game is discounted, I check both physical and digital prices. If it's too cheap on digital, I just go for digital. If it's cheap on both, but not really cheap on digital, I go for physical, so I can return/re-sell if I want.

Sometimes I buy both. I may pre-order physical and after checking that the game is brilliant, I just buy it again digital if the price gets discounted so I can have the convenience of not dealing with discs.

I don't give a damm about collecting, but I do buy physical once or twice a year because I liked the box art or maybe to get a collectors edition. But I rarely do that. I may have about 20 collected physical games bought in the last 15 years.

Instead of hoping the game would come earlier with the mail or actually going to a midnight launch and stand in a nerdline, no thank you.

I've met some great people standing in nerdline though. Whether it's waiting for the midnight release of a new movie, or a book, standing in nerdline is always a great experience. Just be prepared for that one guy that forgot what deodorant was.
