12 great delisted games you may never get to play

For some games, getting delisted - the fancy term for being removed from online marketplaces like Xbox Live, PlayStation Network, and Steam - may as well be a death sentence. If a beloved game exists in physical form, getting delisted isn't the end of the world, as you can still seek out a disc copy of titles. But if the game only ever existed as a download, and the means to buy or reacquire it have been cut off, that game effectively goes away, save for the precious few who kept them on their hard drives and have resolved never to delete them.

So Misleading. You can download if you bought apart from Pt. I've redownloaded Scott pilgrim plenty of times

Yes, you can redownload them, but you can't buy them anymore, so someone who doesn't already own them is screwed if he wants to play them.

"reacquire it have been cut off, that game effectively goes away, save for the precious few who kept them on their hard drives and have resolved never to delete them."
I'm speaking on this specifically. Delisted can't be any more clear and common sense. But what they say here is like spinning to make it seem like you have to never delete anything after it's delisted. That's why I said it's misleading. I can still download the tmnt reshelled while delisted, mvc2 while delisted, I'm not sure if it's still delisted but bomberman ultra and I know surely I can still download Scott pilgrim as it's one of my favourite games and I'm always redownloading it.

I'm always physical over digital and hate digital only releases to the point I'll skip certain games for it. But let's keep the articles from misleading people

This is why we need PC release atleast for these kinds. Just like Wolfenstein 2009 and No One Lives Forever, PC gamers will make sure it survives.

And that is why I relish going with physical. :)
