Well, the point is - yes, digital versions of games allow the player to play a game without the need for a CD or a DVd in any drive …
… On the other hand I have the problem that a digital version of a game is far two insecure for me, in two points :
- If the harddisk crashes, then the game is gone. Am I allowed to make a copy of it ? Most certainly not.
In general, I fear that downloaded games are more easily lost than non-downloaded versions. I prefer something physical - disks.
- I don't buy online, because I don't use credit cards or other online payment methods. Too insecure for my taste.
You might call this paranoia, I don't care. Maybe I've read too many security reports in the last years.
