Could be worse. You could be German.
I'm surprised Minecraft isn't there. At my local Target, half of the PC Game shelf is Minecraft cards and guide books.
What kind of dumb shit buys a minecraft guidebook when everything you could ever want to know about the game is in wikis?
>ask for a physical copy
>you got it
Look at this! A physical copy of a FREE TO PLAY game. Stop being weird.
ARBEIT MACHT FREI
Why do you think Germany is one of the most popular countries ever?
Why do you think many immigrants want to move to Germany?
Because we keep working, no matter what. We improve everything, german engineers are the best.
German workers day schedule is basically work 18 hours, sleep 6 hours.
I cant wait to move to Japan so the cute asian whores want to suck my aryan dick.
>liking CD keys
>liking multiple install discs
>liking "please insert disc 1 to play"
I still have my UT2004 copy. Its five discs and a piece of the box with the CD key. I'd rather have my games only on my HDD. If I really need to make a copy then I'll just get a crack and throw it onto an external drive.
>What kind of dumb shit buys a minecraft guidebook
I work at target and you'll be surprised at how many kids and parents ask us if we have a certain minecraft book in stock. shit is seriously popular.
those are wal-mart shelf tags. also,
you mean that place i used to go when all of commerce wasn't at my fingertips, and now houses local school districts' art projects in places where stores used to be?
Physical has nothing to do with any of those. Developers could easily enable you to burn physical copies of your own without piracy. They could also give you download codes so that your physical copy comes with digital as well. The issue is when everything is just a digital license held by a service provider that can suspend provision of software even if you paid for it.
So something like this?
>The issue is when everything is just a digital license held by a service provider
Well blame the internet for that. It's become a lot easier to pirate games now that you can easily download them in minutes. They're going to try to stop piracy somehow, even if it isn't a efficient solution
>New York Taxi : the simulation
So basically I get shot every 5 minutes by a nigger or a spic, am forced to pay ridiculous amount of taxes and forced to eat my own shit because the food in NY is literally vomit
That requires steam, which is not the same as buying digital and burning a backup. There is no such thing as a piracy solution. There is not a single game that has ever been piracy proof, but there are lots of games that weren't purchased because the publishers fucked over paying customers and encouraged them to pirate.
