Got a notice in the mail that the gaming shop that had to close is going to reopen in December but with a 'limited' selection of games. Will check it out when they do open.
They have decided not to reopen. :(

Our town has a huge indoor flea market that just opened to the public. The owner of the video store that closed down, has rented space there. We now have a place to go again to buy video games.

I buy table top board games from a local shop, my warhammer etc… but games, I usually buy online.

In the UK (or at least where I am) we can get in store deals on games that actually make them cheaper than downloading…

Coolness. I've never played a tabletop game, altho I really wanted to check out Battletech but didn't know anyone that played. :(

I haven't bought a physical copy of a game for years. Digital is much better for me. I was never good at taking care of physical media...

I used to buy games on disc. But I have since been downloading the digital versions online. It's easier and more convenient for me.

Everyone did. There was a time when downloading a game other than a pirated copy, didn't exist. lol

There is a Gamestop in the other town but they almost exclusively sell console stuff as almost every PC game is now downloadable on-line it seems.
