I keep seeing this word convenience being thrown around but it's like, how inconvenient is physical anyway? I mean, if two people are in a room on a couch, and there are two Switches docked under the TV... how much faster is the digital owner going to be able to get into their game than the physical owner? A minute? Thirty seconds? Because surely, it takes no more than that to pop in a game and sit back down.

Currently I'm sitting in the upper birth of a loft-bed, with a game console mounted across the room and *behind* the TV.  You'd better believe digital is a hell of a lot more than convenient for me in this moment!  :D

But it's also the convenience of not having to figure out where to put the boxes, not having to dust them, not having to alphabetize them, not opening up a case to find the wrong game inside, not opening up a case to find NO game inside, not having to move them with me if I move house, not having the cost of buying shelving, not having to buy bigger and bigger places to accommodate an ever-growing collection, etc.
