Physical games ARE trash, it's a fact. They're only a physical container for data, as much as a disposable cup is a physical container for storebought coffee.
The physical game industry needs to tone down hard. It's basically throwing away money. And no, you don't own it either just because you have a disc with a game. You own the object, but the software is still subject to servers, patches, DRM, etc.

Physical media these days is just Key-disk DRM.
The content of the disk often isn't even playable without the day one (or updated) download. (SKYRIM, IIRC.)

Still, I'll swing by Walmart. 😎

The initial version had a few fun (and useful) glitches. Plus, it *is* a game license and my sister has shown some interest.
