>Buying physical copies of PC games
Do any of you still do this?
Last one I ever bought was Portal 2, and that was because of a specific reason that I can't remember
I´m, because fuck downloads
I actually bought the stand alone TF2 disc back in the day
And my computer couldn't run it
I bought Battlefield 4 physical because it was too big for my old internet cap. Would've used up a third of it back then, but I've since upgraded.
Own a physical copy of AvP 2 because it's one of my favorite games ever made.
Also picked up a few games at FUCKING GAMESTOP because they were cheap.
I've always wondered, do you people just lay shit out on your desk for pictures like a bunch of facebook grills or something, or do you literally just keep random drinks all over the damn place?
I still buy/prefer physical console games, but after buying the battle chest of WoW, back in the day, I am done.
Instead of selling a single disc that was up to date, the disks were packaged as "updates". You had to build the game DVD by DVD, with patches constantly downloading in between each installation. It was a nightmare!
Yeah, I have a 12GB a month dl+ul data cap, So I pretty much need the disc, and half the time the game needs a 5GB update so even if I have the disc I can't play it.
I am kinda curious as to when PC games are gonna start being released on blu-ray,
What the fuck you memespewing fuck
Are you telling me you don't have atleast three empty bottles of beer lying around on your table?
What are you, a fucking faggot drinking Mtn dew, or even better, some fucking Monster?
Let me tell you here mother fucker, I'm fucking Czech and I find your shit very offensive if you think that it's somehow fucking cool to have beer on your fucking picture faggot. If you don't have a beer daily you fucking suck.
>If games download size stays around 40GB
Speed will increase and most games don't need to be that big, it's just retarded devs like those of Titanfall making games unnecessarily large.
>Buy Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle-Eart 1
>You need a DVD-ROM to run it
>Only have CD-ROM
>Never played it to this day
I bought that game years ago, and never even played it once
Co to kurwa jest?!
Znalazłem w lodówce na półce u współlokatora.
I probably would buy them if there were any physical copies of new PC games being released. The last games I checked, though, ended up being Steam keys or something requiring online registration to work. A "physical copy" that requires an internet connection isn't anything I'm interested in.
As it stands, the only time I'd bother with a physical PC game anymore is when it has some physical merchandise with it. There just isn't a point.
hey Guys pic related my last physical pc game purchase. as you can clearly see it's is acclaimed PC title Killing Floors
the last disc game I bought was COD:blops and I bought it in anticipation of moving from console to pc, it was also the last cod I bought which I think says a lot.
>>tfw reading through the manual
legit the only thing I miss about buying retail, they don't even do manuals any more so it's not like I'm missing out
> SUCK A BLYAD BLYAD
The last physical I bought on PC was Divinity OS because it was for some reason cheaper than the Steam price and had that amazing old school case with a fat fucking manual hand book
despite being still a Steam activated game, it's also playable when Steam isn't running, that's always nice
Image is missing text enlarged for no reason.
I'm thinking of putting all my DRM-free games
or at least the good ones(from Humble Bundle, GOG, etc) on an external hard-drive. Has anyone done this?
Yeah. A combination of shitty Australian internet and having physical copies of games/blurays/CDs sitting on my bookshelf positively triggering my autism
I still buy DVD's. They're cheaper most of the time and the resolution difference isn't a big deal to me. I barely even notice it.
i was rummaging around through some things in my closet and found my elder scrolls oblivion disc. installed immediately and have been enjoying now and again.
theres no greater joy than finding a physical copies of things years down the line.
Yes and no, for older games and stuff not tied to drm shit which defeats the purpose of buying a retail copy, yes.
Everything else I just buy directly from the store of the drm site or
>Its scratched to fuck or has a chip in the cd
>Installer doesn't even work
I can agree nothing beats the feeling of finding a game you had and going "holy shit I still have this?" but its immediately ruined once you find out its pretty much cd shredder fodder.
