Just for fun: what was the last PC game you bought in a store, physically, for reals?

I think it would've been the 2016 DOOM for me. The physical copy was actually cheaper than Steam's price, and still gave me a steam key. I also figured I wouldn't have to download as much. I only saved about 5gb s off the 50gb download, but it was worth a shot.

It's a really good game, by the way.

SO many people have told me this. I have it sitting on the ps4 after some sale or another. Oddly, quite a few people have told me the music is particularly good, which surprises me a little. Shooters aren't really my thing but Doom is such a mainstay I couldn't ignore it.

That was the last game I bought from a store, though I'm sure it was with my parents money.

From then on it was hand me downs from my dad: Doom, Red Alert, Starcraft, Battlefield 1942.

Though, I still think of Eco-saurus to this day...
DOOM definitely surprised me in a good way, and the music was no exception.

Speaking of which, a game I wish I'd bought physically was NieR: Automata. Not only is it a stellar sci-fi character action game with fantastic writing and an incredible soundtrack, I found out later that apparently you could get a t-shirt if you bought a boxed copy.

I've been obsessed with that game lately. I want that t-shirt.

For me it was Skyrim, and this will be very unpopular but I was disapointed didn't like Skyrim much.



edit: on a close topic, remember when video games you would buy came up in a huge box?

you had the CD in it, with a big game manual full of lore and artwork, Maps, figurines, shirts, huge ass wallpapper, mouse pad, even a notepad with the art of the game and all other things. The normal purchase of the game back then could put to shame any collector edtion of today. I miss those years.

Ah, I watched an old friend play some NieR:Automata while I was in Tokyo a few months back. He recently attended a concert highlighting the music. I'm pretty envious.

Oh yeah. Those were the days. Speaking of Skyrim, I bought the anniversary edition from Amazon a couple years ago and it came with maps and stuff.
