Ever since the launch of Nintendo Switch back in March 2017 gamers have been faced with the difficult decision as to go digital or stay physical.

Naturally there are pros and cons to each of these choices. Digital means the game can be always available on your system, without the need to carry around extra carts, however, often comes at an ironically higher price tag for the privilege. Physical, on the other hand, comes with a pretty box you can display on your shelf, doesn't take up as much system space and can be resold when you're done.

Just from surveying our own team we know that everyone seems to have their own take on this matter, some are strict and stick to one format or the other, whereas some make the decision on a game by game basis.
