digital download for pc games are ok but the retail market is dead. When i went to gamestop, there was a little shelf all the way in the back of the store. lol i think there was like 10 or 15 games on there. So pc games should not be released on a disc anymore except mmos. When the last time you saw a PC game in the NPD?

The last time I bought a retail PC game is when Starcraft 2 came out and I bought it from Newegg with a video card. Before that i couldnt tell you and I don't miss it one bit.

Last disc game I bought was new vegas for the special edition. Digital download is just convenient for pc, especially because it is usually 10 dollars less than the disc version. On console I still don't like the idea of digital download though.
