This is an old debate/topic, but its still one worth having: Is an all digital future necessary and should be it expected? This came to mind recently with me getting an Xbox One. The system came with download codes for 2 titles: Assassins Creed: Unity and Assassins Creed: Black Flag. One of these games I played already on the PS4 and the other I had no real intention of playing ever.

Needless to say, my sweet wife thought she would be nice and install AC:U while I was work so I could play it when I got home. I didn't tell her that I had no intention of playing it and she was only trying to be nice, so whatever. However, if the system came with a disc copy of either game I could just take it to Gamestop and sell it, even if I did bother to play it for however many hours. I know this scenario isn't preferable to game developers and publishers, but considering I can sell/buy used most things in my life I don't think games should be any different.

Now, 99% of my PC games are digital purchases but I also tend to only buy super cheap games on the PC or ones that I am pretty well aware of keeping long term (like a WoW expansion), so the thought of reselling a PC game has never been that big a deal to me. That being said I still get annoyed at the thought of consoles going "all digital"...if I want to sell my game to Gamestop, or a friend, for a crappy price that's my prerogative.

Am I an old man at the ripe age of 29? I know some people take the stance of "I never get rid of games", but plenty of us do. I keep most games, but there are those that I have no interest in keeping. For example, I platinumed Infamous: Second Son and there is no reason to go back to that game, especially since the developer insists on creating stand alone "expansions". Just curious what the "temperature" of the community was on selling games in the context of an impending "all digital future".

Just read Hell House for the 5th time. I think that's the best "Haunted house" book I've ever read. The original film is also on Netflix, so I'm gonna watch that again. I hope they go for that one, but I'm sure they won't. I have a feeling they might do another Crichton book, maybe Jurassic Park with Jurassic World coming around the corner.

Richard Matheson is such an amazing author. Still ticked they bastardized I Am Legend with that crap Will Smith film...

@lunnington: Toxic might well have been 2014's most overused word on social media and in commentary. I hope we're not continuing the trend in 2015. Nothing in this discussion has been toxic. The closest would be wondering why they have two running Patreons for the same content and that's just good questioning.

Phantom Pain, Batman: Arkham Knight, Bloodborne, Halo 5, Uncharted 4, The Witcher 3, Grim Fandango Remastered, Amplitude (backer, yay), Hellraid, ODST release for Xbone, (hopefully) Halo: Reach release on Xbone, Galak-z, No Man's Sky, Persona 5, Ratchet and Clank, Zelda (hopefully), Starfox (hopefully), Star Wars Battlefront, Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, Yakuza 5, and probably more.

Most anticipated is really hard to say...Witcher 3, Bloodborne, Halo 5, and Uncharted 4 are ties for that.

@dynamix: What you seem to be missing is that they are continuing to keep that Patreon open and use it while creating the new one and using it as well. Pretty scummy.

I like Patrick a bunch, followed him for years, but I cannot think of one moment that stands out for me. Only Bomber I can honestly say that about.

As a new Xbone owner I would like this. I wouldn't mind a sequel to the Nuts and Bolts style game.

Not sure if you've sent an invite yet or not, but since this is a new thread just letting you know I'd be interested in joining and being active. Thanks for taking the time to clean up and allow new players in!
