I have to own the box copy. If something screws up it only takes a minute to reinstall. I hated having to redownload all my Source games when the Source engine got screwed up.

I can't remember the last time I bought a retail copy of a PC game... Fallout 3 GOTY I think, but that was cause it was $30 on amazon and I still haven't installed it. Before that? Age of Conan? lulz

I like having boxed copies. Just the other day I was going to reinstall L4D because I wanted to play it, but the download was going to take about an hour and a half. I had the disc though, so I installed it in 4 minutes and played.

Buying boxed copies is cool, but if I can't get the boxed game on my steam account then wtf is it worth to me.

Let's not suddenly think that steam is the majority of PC games sales now, or even the cause for the increase. This is all facebook games revenue people.

backup your GCF files bro, get an external or a pro 32GB flash drive.
