I'm fine with digital. I'm increasingly less fine with DRM the more intrusive/annoying it gets. They aren't obligated to do so at all but if you consider games art at all, wouldn't their preservation be important? Something that happened with films when they started was people just discarding films once they didn't sell anymore. Now we preserve films. Gaming has had similar things happen with secrecy, NDAs, deletion of source codes, etc. Not saying you have to consider games art, or art worthy or preservation, but it's something to consider. I think media in general should be preserved and that the common person should have the ability to preserve whatever they pay for. I know physical has had issues moving forward but as long as my games work and I can keep the files and make it work, I don't care in the end product if it's digital or physical. I just want to have the rights to use something I paid to use. And yes, there must be a reason they buy anti-piracy things but I'm not really sure what it is.
