Digital sales are increasing in 2019. Overall physical sales are decreasing. Digital games are increasing over physical games as gamers choose convenience over driving to the store or buying physical discs shipped to their house online. Also console gamers prefer physical games for their collections according to Games Industry Biz. In addition you can lend a physical console game to a friend or trade it in at a store. This is something you cannot do with digital.
Remember that your local independent video games store or retailer like Best Buy and GameStop has the latest games on shelves or at launch. They have actual people who are working there to sell you the latest game or your favorite. Plus they are friendly and knowledgeable. Something you cannot read from an online review or video. Plus you do not have to download the base game only the content that is not available on the disc. If your Internet download speed is less than desirable choose physical! Remember they are working there to provide you the customer a product.
If you do not want them to go out of business like other companies Toys R Us and Circuit City that also sold video games choose buying physical games! There are people's careers on the line. They need a paycheck in order to live. Plus the games are more often on sale because they have to move physical merchandise. A benefit to you the gamer.
