The only thing you "can't get" with digital games is the selling (although GMG actually does allow that for some non-Steam games). But I've never sold my console games and don't buy used, so that doesn't matter to me.

 

But collecting you can most certainly get (hell, I have a "Director of Acquisitions" badge on Steam for having over 500 games).

 

And believe it or not, there's rarity too when it comes to Steam, as some games are no longer sold on Steam and thus when a Steam Key is discovered/sold for them, they can be quite nice for collector's. Of course the real benefit of digital distribution is that there tends to be no limitation on the number "produdced."

Well I got Borderlands2 a couple months back for $20.00. GameStop was $40 & Amazon/ebay didn't have it less than $30. So that was a good deal, imo. And the ability to sell hard copies back lowers the effective price of the game. And buying used is also money saving. Those who don't buy used, that's your right. But I like being able to buy and sell my property. Unless its in my financial interest (read:cheaper) to buy digital.

72 F2P Games

 

And actually, Steam has given free games in the past during previous events.

Both BL2 and it's Season pass are going for $10.19 a piece at the moment and that's without having to have a paid subscription. Not bad. Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition is $7.50 at the moment.
