    So, which way of buying/getting games more appeals to you?
    If there is maybe some another way that is not on the poll, wrote it down :)

    I prefer digital download. Usually its easier and I dont have to deal with box and papers taking up more space in my closet.

    I choose for retail box, I just like to have the box with the nice image on front and it feels better, though you have to pay for those :(

    Since free games don't have retial boxes due do obvious reasons :) I mean on game who have both option, like buy2 play or subscription based :) Most games on steam have both options available but people rather go for digital version even if the price is the same :)
    I like retial boxes because when i get one, i feel like i actually bough something and i can add it to my game collection on the top shelf in my room :)

    download also.. the tangible product might be damaged but the software that you will be downloading may be copied to multiple files so that you will have an assurance of it.

    Depends, I'll buy it where ever I can get it cheapest but if price is the same then probably download unless my internet connection sucked.

    I'm too lazy to go to stores. And like Ichigo says, you don't have to remember where you put the CD.
