    I've bought 1 game in a store which was the Dragon Age Chronicles set...which didn't work and the store wouldn't give me a refund.

    Everything else I've bought either through a Kickstarter (have to wait for those to be made) or a Steam special (got a lot of $6 games!).

    I only buy PC games...I have a console but don't use it at all (given to me as payment for fixing 2 computers at a business...rescued their entire customer database from a faulty hard drive).

    I only buy online. Mostly from Steam (or Gamefly and mmoga since they often sell steam games with good discounts).

    Last game I bought in a brick and mortar store must have been 4 or 5 years ago.

    Most of the time I buy on Steam, I cant even remember the last time I went to a store to buy a game. The convenience of digital distribution is a key factor, that and I'm lazy.

    I have been filling up my steam and gog library with games I liked looking at but didn't actually get around to playing. I must not like waiting for a download.
