I never mess with DVDs. I buy the physical version, activate the game code contained within, then download the game. Can't even remember the last physical game I bought where I actually had to use the discs that came with it. Maybe 10 years ago or so.Personally I prefer a download option than having to mess with DVDs. It's bound to be updated anyway.
A lot of physical copies of games don't even come with discs anymore - a growing trend. You're really just getting a collectible box, and whatever's inside.
