I like knowing that if my thing breaks I'll still have it when I replace my thing.

I'd rather have the disc because for any reason my laptop gets whipped I can just put the disc in and get it back.

Although I have no qualms with Steam, programs take longer to download, and you have to be on the computer to make sure that the download is complete.

I think it's really cool to have the physical copy, even though with digital you don't have to worry about losing it or scratching it, I still think it's cooler to have the actual disk.

I always prefer the physical copy.
It's nice to look at on your shelf

I sometimes download games for the ps2 emulator (but that's only cos the tv got thrown out, so I cannot use the ps2)
But there is always the risk of getting a virus.

PLUS nowdays you need Steam for digital....and I hate how you need steam for that.

I hate how 'Child of Light' is digital.....and you need Steam

I try not to use torrents/downloads because of viruses if I don't know the website I'm getting it from. Having a disc guarentees no virus ;) I usually get my serial codes easily online though xp
As for MMORPGs, sure, I have no problem downloading them since theyre straight from the website of the game :)

I love having physical copies of my movies ^__^ Although nowadays it feels like I can only find my favorite music artist on Google Play XD

depends one how many games you buy. if you only get like ten games a year discs are a bit better because you can trade them, loan them to friends and sell them if you end up not liking the game. If you buy like a over a hundred games a year its definitely in your best interest to download as much as possible, because storing a large collection of CD's is a complete pain in the ass and you'll always be running out of room, you might have to buy a big hard drive to store it all but buying hard drives is a lot cheaper than buying shelves, unless you build your own or buy cheap unpainted ones straight from the wood mill

I've read that Digital downloads would take up a lot more space than a physical disc copy can.

Like fer instance: GTA 5 fer PS3 physical copy - 8.23 gb, the Digital Download of GTA 5 can be more around 17.8 GB

And the Digital download I've checked is risky to download 'cause of the lagging and glitches.

I'm talking about physical space discs take up vs space downloadable games take up on a hard drive, like finding a place to store 50 physical discs when your shelves are already full is a lot more of a pain in the ass than trying to download 50 games when you're hard drive is full. with downloadable games you can buy more storage mediums for a lot cheaper than a brand new shelf usually, plus you can always temporarily delete games to make room for new ones, the same cant be said for discs unless you want to move ones you don't play in into the basement or sell them or something

I think both as well but it depends on space capacity 'cause GTA 5 PSN download takes up a lot of memory.
