You made Valve sound evil.
Call me a Tig ol'Bit if you want, but I like discs more then downloadable. Just cause it's good to have a game, instead of a download which could refer to lags and stuff. And imagine what they will ask for does downloads, maybe they're gonna ask per month or worse.... as in "Your ass is served, sir. And there is no way back, soooo you're screwed.".
Never take conspiracy too lightly, my friend!
That's true. There's one going around that Valve is composed completely of trolls. That would actually explain their problem with 3 and some of their TF2 decisons, particularly weapon balance.
We all prefer the realy thing, but the next gen is going to have more download only things, so id rather have them so I can back them up
I'll really stop gaming if they are going charge me 60 euro's for downloadable games, I'm not lying. I mean that kind of stuff just begs for getting hacked by someone. That would mean that "Watch Dogs" is going to be real life.
I keep reading stuff saying the games of the future are going to be totally digital download or cloud gaming. I just can't bring myself to get excited over something like that. I am like the "touch & smell the disc and booklet" sort of gamer. I want something in my hands to feel. I want to look on my shelf at the box art. To me it is part of the experience. I am just too old school I guess. Hearing these things causes me to draw back into my retro gaming shell. I have grown too close to things that I expect when purchasing a new game. I know deep down at some point this is the way gaming is going. Technology is changing the gaming culture perspective of the "now" generation of gamers. To them the way we did things in the past has become a museum piece. The future is something I find hard to swallow.
How successful this concept in gaming becomes will impact the way we game in the future. If this takes off and flies, you could see the next generation of gaming have a very short lifespan (remember the Sega Dreamcast). That economic squeeze will guarantee it. Especially if the games are a lot cheaper than the big three consoles.

Welcome to my world, At least most the games will be free or cheap, im ok with getting something at those prices, its when places start charging full price for them is when its arse
Considerin' it wasn't like this 'till a couple of years ago (and the fact I'm complainin' 'bout not having a manual of all things), my complaints over a lack of manuals must be a tad odd.
