Problem is El Alamein Kickstarter is also running and looking at $75 tier there...lots of money...

Oof.  I've had El Alamein for years and I do like it (though Barbarossa is better), but I really can't recommend supporting the KS.  The most recent Tanto Cuore expansion (from their sister company Japanime Games) is about a year late at this point and they just announced another 3-week delay.  Fuck those guys; it's a damn card game.

Duh.  Yeah, you're right.  I hit up support, too.

So... yeah. I love old games.  But if anything, they're just more evidence to me that I really, truly, don't need to worry about my digital collection.   Odds are, in 30 years there will be a better way to play them anyway, just like I prefer to play my PSP games on my vita.  Heck, I prefer playing the old genesis games I loved on my vita too.  Times change.  Worrying about some awful future where Sony decides to stop serving files on an extremely popular and profitable service just isn't worth it.

If you're content with emulation of varying quality and piracy, then sure, I see no reason not to go digital for your games.

 

I could counterpoint a few other little things you said in those two big posts, but it feels like arguing with a climate change denier.  We've reached the point where the conversation will generally just go in circles, so I'm out.

Now that it's getting a physical Vita release, I want to be interested.  Digimon has always seemed like shitty off-brand Pokemon to me, and that terrible theme song doesn't help.

 

A skim through a trailer didn't change my opinion.  Am I missing something?

I think it's a fallacy to point to a platform that only had the barest taste of digital content and try to apply the results to the world we are in now. Yes, XBL and PSN may eventually desist older platform content. But to look at the pioneer days of direct console content and try to use that as a crystal ball? Bad move.

If you don't want to buy digital, don't buy digital. Frankly, I'm not too concerned about games being unavailable fifteen or twenty years down the line. Mostly because I'll be in my 50s.

I'm not sure what age has to do with it.  I'm 32 now and still enjoy the games that I enjoyed when I was 10.  I don't see why I wouldn't like the games that I play now when I'm 52.  Hell, the way the industry is headed, everything in 20 years will be FTP mobile trash and I'll doubly value my ability to play retro games.
