You and all the other people replying to this thread are lying i know for a fact that you all aren't digital people.

My mom was a robot and my dad was a cyborg.

Everything I own is digital, physical is so lame

*frantically tries to shut cupboard as boxes and boxes of sweet, beautiful physical copies spill out*



On the PC, it was World of Warcraft: Mist of Pandaria.

For the consoles. Yes, i will definitely stop purchasing physical games. The PS5 platform will be first one, i will. Final Fantasy Origin is going to be my final physical purchase. Interestingly, i only have three physical PS5 games. They are Judgment, Lost Judgment and Guardians of the Galaxy. Yeah, it is almost that too early to stop buying physical PS5 games.

Breath of the Wild. Tangibility is still pleasing to me including the smell of booklets and all… but it’s hard to beat convenience.



For PS4, I think its Yakuza Kiwami collectors edition. For Xbox One, I think its Titanfall 2.

I may still buy some delisted Xbox 360 games and I like to collect Switch carts.

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.

Sure, that’s one instance but even with that logic it’s thirty seconds that I never had to spend obtaining or searching for that game.

It could also mean traveling and only worrying about the console and not the dozens of cartridges I would have been carrying with me.

It could also mean less risks of losing cartridges by me or by my kids.

It could also mean I’m a lazy person.

Convenience is subjective and digital works for me now.

Time and age forced me to realize those thirty seconds matter now to me than ever before.

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.
