Mostly retail. Although digital retail where they ship it to me instead of going to a store

Only get digital when it's cheaper, which is very rare. Even bought a physical PC game at retail earlier this year because that was cheaper than the digital price

Been digital only all gen

Digital only. Stores around here suck ass. They never have the games I want so I don't care to even look there anymore. I also don't order discs at online stores, because I don't see the point. Downloading them is way faster.

There's a fine line between off the street and of the street.

Depends on the game, if it's a game from a franchise I am a big fan of, then I buy physical through online stores mostly since retail stores are very expensive where I live. Otherwise I buy digital.

Mostly retail, specially for console. On PC is mostly digital for obvious reasons, but I never buy a digital game at full price, they don't usually have the right value in my eyes.

You know it deserves the GOTY.

Mostly retail, few cases the digital version where the digital version is insanely cheaper. PC I do all digital, but I sort of hate steam right now, so I abandoned PC.


On PC: 100% Digital

On consoles: 95% Retail
