I've heard lots of conflicting things about digital downloads. Some say it's convenient, it avoids having to have the disc in your drive when playing, etc. Others say you don't get the artwork or manual, and when the company that sold it to you goes belly-up (f.e. Valve or EA), that's it for you as well, since you can never reinstall the game again. That last thing has got me puzzled. When you buy a game online and choose the digital download version, don't you get to download a .dmg file which can then be burned to a CD or DVD ? Or has it something to do with activation.
