1st off I own a couple of game stores in Ohio called C&C Games. We sell everything from Atari to current gen and also have a few arcade games. So obviously I'm a little biased towards physical. I am not anti digital. I honestly thought by now I would be buying and selling both physical and digital games in my stores. I hope someday our laws will catch up with our technology  and we will be able to resell/trade/gift our digital purchases to others. Me personally I just don't get the same feeling from digital that I get from owning a physical game. I think items like the nes and snes classic are good examples of a physical item in a digital world. I think most diehard gamers at there cores are collectors and the reason why an item like the nes/snes classic appeal to them. It's something to collect. Its very easy to emulate all these older systems for free but there's just something about owning that Nintendo branded item. Well enough rambling let me know your thoughts...
