Default What was the last boxed game you bought

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.

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

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.
