Last Saturday Merric and I were on the Late Night Steamer Podcast1 (Episode 60). The show was talking about MMOs in Steam and at one point the discussion was about retail stores vs digital download. I thought this would be an interesting topic for a poll. So do you have a preference on how you buy your game?
