No.

Death to physical games; death to pre-owned games.
Digital forever!



Dude, if you have a problem with that, don't ever touch a coin... or a door handle. Ever.



Hmm, pie.

Hate is a strong word, but I'm not really a fan of physical games anymore, be it used or new. I was getting pretty OCD about my games becoming old as time went on, discs getting scratches (DVD's scratch just by looking at them honestly), etc. so I sold them all and I just buy digital now. Much more practical and I don't have to worry about my games getting worn down with time =P

What I'm doing with my PC games now is trying to get them both physically, because I like owning them, and if they're on sale getting them digitally because Steam/GOG try to make the games more compatible so I don't have to do the work! However, I can't get Tomb Raider 1 or Hitman: Codename 47 to work for some reason.

I only buy used games if they have the original case, I never buy loose discs or cartridges, unless they are retro.




My kids go to grade school, I have super immunity now. A few germs from a disc case is nothing compared to grade school.

Can't you just add physical PC games to your Steam library rather than having to buy them twice though? I know I've got the physical disc for a bunch of PC games that I've added to my Steam library and can now just download from Steam whenever I want without having to use the disc. It unfortunately doesn't work for games not on Steam though.

If the game uses Steam from the disc version, I'm talking about games from the 80s, 90s, early 2000s, etc. that were pre-Steam or that didn't come with a Steam version.
