The end of last gen I started my digital game collection with the weekly deals. Games at $5-10. Even if I had the physical game already, it just makes it more convenient to not swap discs and play games instantly. I transitioned into buying only collectors editions at launch with pre order goodies and just waiting for the game to go on sale digitally to finally play it.
I get you. The convenience is so nice. I never expected to download Sunset Overdrive, but rather buy that physically. Eventually, I cracked because Microsoft put it on sale for $30. That was good enough for me. Sony had an even better sale as well.
