Physical. Walmart and Target have both groceries and electronics, and I still gotta eat.

My backlog is big enough to keep me entertained for at least 6 month.
That and FF14 which feeds me with updates regulary.

The same way that i have been. Physical and delivered.

I'm not buying anything right now, but if I did I would get them delivered.
I always go for physical games when I have the option.

I've been buying pretty much exclusively digital all gen, so in that regard, the virus hasn't really made any impact on me.

99% since 2010.

100% since May 2015.

Last physical game I bought was Disney Infinity 2.0 for PS Vita.

Would consider going Physical again if they offered a digital code with physical games like the Movie industry, but I am not going to limit the accessibility of my collection to the one disc that is in the system.

Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

If I did buy, it would be digital on PC, and mostly physical on consoles, which I'd get delivered home, but I'm not planning on buying games any time soon at the moment. My backlog could easily get me through this whole year without any problems.

I haven't bought any games for awhile. But if I were to buy any soon I'd probably want old games, which means used games store!

My backlog is big enough to keep me going for another 5 years or more :/

The last physical game I bought was Death Stranding. I spend over 300 hours on that game.
I bought one more game after, Dreams, digital edition since it's all digital anyway. Dreams alone is enough never to need any new games anymore...
