View Full Version : What was the last boxed game you bought
01-26-12, 01:46 PM
I tend to buy pc games very less now, and even those, I usually buy of deals that come on Origin, Steam, Amazon, D2D, GMG, etc. The last box I bought was the Civ 5 collectors edition for 14 bucks, and that too just for the miniatures, I already had the game on steam. Do you guys buy boxed games any more?
Command and Conquer Generals. A long, long, long time ago.

I bought Commandos for a buck at a yard sale a few years ago.
Aside from that I've been buying everything I play through Steam for years.
Swtor. I didn't want the Origin digital download version.

Do console games count? If not then I have no clue... it's been a LONG time.

Dead Space 1. And before that, HL2. The box that has the character's face on the cover... Still have that one.

WoW collectors, love the art books.

ass creed revelations about a month ago, digital was regionally gouged for me so boxed was much cheaper.
Looking through my games, it seems it was GTL in 2008. I think I got that game for the historic Mod for rF.
Been a long time since I bought a box game.

Skyrim was the last one I bought retail from Newegg since they have the best preorder price usually. Next one will be Mass Effect 3 also from Newegg.
Mass Erect 2. from gogamer. RIP.

I bought Portal 2 from Amazon. Actually, I can probably name all the games I've bought boxed: UT2004, Star Wars Galaxies, FEAR, Oblivion, Far Cry, Orange Box, Bioshock, BF2. And I've actually re-bought all those on digital stores except for SWG.

Dead Space 2 I wanted the CE.
@ Munkis-Pitfall was awesome, but i liked Kaboom better.

Planescape torment, zork grand inquisitor, arcanum and ice wind dale 2. Sometimes my library sells old books, dvds, tapes and software. No big boxes but the jewel cases, disks and manuals are in perfect shape.

I don't want to give the full amount of money to EA because that's exactly the reason why they came up with Origin and now forcing that POS software on everyone.
i guess i will be missing out on mass effect 3

Bad Company 2

SC2. Before that Orange Box.

I don't think I've ever bought a game digitally except for a few cell phone games. The last three games I've bought (skyrim, portal 2, starcraft 2) were all boxed.
I will never -EVER- buy a game that requires origin though. Don't want anything to do with a service that will remove your ownership of a game after two years. I already hate the idea that steam owns some of my games as it is.

Origin won't remove your games after 2 years Rakeesh.
01-27-12, 03:38 AM
Yes they will. If there is no activity for 2 years. It's under there agreement that you must accept when using origin. I won't use origin either. I saw it on several sites back when I was thinking of getting BF3.

No, they won't. They can, but you agreed to similar thing with Steam. I don't see people rioting over that...

I think it was Mafia 2
