Do you prefer to buy Digital Games on gaming platforms or do you prefer Physical Copies?
Digital Games on platforms such as steam, origin, xbox live and even psn are taking over. The question is are people buying less and less physical copies of games in the present century?
I feel as though the physical copy of the game is getting your money's worth. Also you can resell and trade in at game stores
For me, it depends on how do you see games: if you want to buy a game, but you think one day you will get tired of playing at it, I would reccomend physical copies: you will always be able to sell physical copies.
If there is a game you like too much and you think you will always like to play to it, you can buy a digital copy, and you get a big advantage: you will be able to access to it virtually forever. Physical copies get damaged over time (DVDs, if kept in good conditions, can last dozens of years, even if tests are not completely sure as DVDs are a recent technology, and you are sure able to resell them after you are tired of the game, but it is difficult to keep them forever), while digital copies may always be downloaded at any moment (and it is difficult a big digital store will stop to exist in the future, but in this case you can get a refund and buy a digital copy from another store).
My husband switched from using his PS3 all the time to just using Steam on his computer. Then the playstation broke it didn't matter because he had exclusively switched to gaming on his computer.
Through his computer he can connect another program that allows him to chat with his friends while playing games with them. He likes it way more than playing on a console.
He even has a controller he can plug into his computer if he really wants the "feel" of the video game.
For older games though we prefer them on their consoles. Like Nintendo 64 and Super Nintendo.
I buy a lot of games on Steam, but that's because so many games are only available digitally a lot of the time.
For me personally, when I can get physical copies, I get them. For some reason I just really enjoy the feeling of having a physical copy in my hands. (It's the same reason I still buy books and even CDs occasionally. And also I'm kind of a hoarder.)
I'm sure most people probably prefer digital for new games though. It definitely saves space, and it's way more convenient to buy something on Steam and play it right away than to have to go out and buy a copy.

Do people still buy books any more?With many bookstores going out of business, do you still buy books anymore? If so, do you buy the traditional books, audio-books, or eBooks?
