    Digital games - Ever buy them?

    Out of curiosity, how many people here actually buy digital games?
    I know most here prefer physical copies, that doesn't necessarily mean they never buy digital games.

    The whole Neo/Scorpio thing has gotten me to think much more about PC gaming lately, but unfortunately PC gaming is 99% digital atp. Well, I finally cracked and bought some games during a Steam sale (all under $1 each), as well as my first Humble Bundle today (the Sonic one, MUCH cheaper then buying them directly through Steam). I don't like digital, but it's the only way to really get back into PC gaming these days.

    What about you guys? Are you 100% physical, or do you make allowances for digital sometimes?

    I occasionally do, but it has to be something that never has a chance of a physical release, like the 3DS version of Recca.

    I like computer games too much to stop buying them, though, it still bothers me that it's mostly digital only. I'm through with consoles if they ever go digital only, regardless of exclusives.

    I have lots of digital games. Only 4 of them did I pay full price for and all of them are Falcom games. Steam library is over 100, PSN is probably close to 100 with PSP/PSX/PS2. The convenience is very nice, but not worth full price, usually.

    I have lots as well. I think the only one I paid close to full price for was Pillars.

    I buy digital versions if the game is too embarrassing to have a copy lying around, like Neptunia re;birth 2, Akiba's Trip and Style Savvy.

    Bahaha this made me crack a smile. Definitely agree about Akiba's Trip too, haven't played the others.

    Embarrassing? You're supposed to show those games off specifically! I make everyone who comes over (that doesn't game as much as I do) watch the intro video to Rumble Roses just because it's embarrassing and absurd.

    I'm sad about us not getting Summer Lesson in the west because I wanted it as a shelf item to show to everyone. There are so few rewards that come with owning lots of junk, and showing off weird crap to people is the most rewarding.
