Why yes... yes I do.

They are normally priced between $10-$20 so there is not that much risk involved when deciding to buy a downloadable game over the PSN and Xbox 360.  But I usually make sure I play the demo first before I purchase the game just to make absolutely sure that I will enjoy the game.
I have purchased  downloadable games over steam as well. The process is pretty simple to get used to, but I did have one bad experience.  I downloaded a game that constantly crashed on my PC (Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood).  So when something like that happens you're pretty much stuck with the game.  If you had a physical copy you might be able to take it back to the store and get a refund.  But Steam said "No refund for you...sorry".


Not that entertaining

The main reason I watched was for the exclusive world premiere trailers and not for the actual awards which makes the whole show rather pointless.  Since I do not get SPIKE I tried to watch them online with the 4 different camera angles which turned out to be a frustrating experience.  Hey camera man! Remember to keep the camera pointed at the screen next time so I can see the damn trailers!


Its Fun to Buy Into the Hype...

I've been to three midnight launches so far (Halo 2, Halo 3, and GTA 4).  All three went pretty smoothly.  I showed up around an hour before midnight and stood in line and I usually made it home before a quarter to 1 AM. I do so because there is always the fear I have that my copy will not be available if I wait until after work the next day and attending the midnight launch and buying into all the pre-launch hype gives me something to be excited about.  However, when I do purchase a game at midnight, I only can play the game for about 30 minutes and then go to bed which makes the whole thing kind of pointless.
