I love steam for the fact that you don't need CD's and dont need to keep track of CD Keys....and say you have to reformat your HD, you just log on to steam, download the game and you are golden!

I got 2 Gamestop near me that is 5-10 minutes away walking distance, so it's not that bad, and if they don't have a game, then I could check Target, which is only about 12 minute walk from my house.

I think I prefer having a physical copy, and install it with that than to re-download them and reinstall them. That would take 4 times as long depending on the game with my connection. Although I heard you can burn the copy onto a DVD so you won't have to re-download.
As for the CD's and Key's, I keep them all at the same place.

Steam is alright IMO, it's an great alternative. Though I don't think I would use it.

I'd find downloadable systems useable if they were always cheaper than standard boxed copies, but this is hardly the case.
Its the same with downloadable albums of music. You can usually find the real CD version (plus its higher quality than an MP3) for cheaper than a digital download, which is lossy when in MP3 format which most sites use...

If games were really a lot cheaper, I'd use it a lot more.

Same goes if downloadable albums came in FLAC format (lossless) for cheaper than a CD version, and not MP3...
I don't see the point paying more/the same for less content (quality)/packaging on a downloadable one when on most sites like Amazon, you can find the games for a lot cheaper (+ waiting time of course)
