I like boxes and dvd-cases etc. so I clearly prefer a boxed version of the game. However, I do have some downloaded versions of games, mostly though modules for NWN1, and an adventure game called 'the shivah'.

I also think that a boxed version is the best guarantee that you have for being able to play the game 5 or 6 years after its release. Troika Games went under and so did Interplay and Looking Glass Studio - and many more small indie developers did go under, and I'm sure more will follow. Not that I hope this, but the way of the world is such that the big fish eat the little fish…

If say Interplay or Troika only did offer download options for Bloodlines or Fallout, what would we do know, you'd think. Or for adventure game lovers, think of Still Life and Post Mortem….and the way Micro´ds Studio went away…
