After getting a #NintendoSwitch I’ve started swinging back around to buying physical games.
Not every game. Some games I know I’ll keep for the life of the system, like Smash and Kart, so I go digital. But I’ve rediscovered the joy of trading in games for discounts on the next.
Tonight I traded in Xenoblade and Victor Vran, got $47 (disclaimer: I’m a Pro member at GameStop, which adds extra trade-in cred).
I used that to buy #Darksiders3. A $60 game cost me only $18 or so. Sweet!
@chartier I still can’t get past the “urgh, do I really have to get up and change the cart?” sentiment. But I’ve never been the type of person to trade-in games, so there’s definitely a personal element to it all.
I know a lot of folks like physical media to “own something” but I’ve recently taken to buying strategy guides. Lovely hard-back books are a great reminder of my favourite (digital!) games, and good for getting all the value out of them.
