That's exactly what I will do

If digital distribution is going to replace physical media… the makers of consoles and console games better get on it, because at this point probably over 90% of every console game made/sold/played is only availabe as physical media. As long as they're offering it for consoles, it will be offered for PC games. The push for digital distribution of console games is minimal at best right now. So we are years away from physical media dying, or even losing its dominance as the primary form of distribution.

And when (and if) it does I will just sit back and play all the games that I have in boxes, because I'm not going to pay for something that I can't hold in my hand. You're right… I'm an old fart who is resisting change… but like you said, it all comes down to personal taste.
May all your hits be crits!
