I prefer to have a physical media too, but i'm generally ok with digital distribution, as long as it's not some subscription or streamed-model bullsoykaf, which is absolutely a no-no for me, since it's giving the control of things you've purchased and "own" to external companies that can go out of bussiness any minute, be it for financial reasons, natural disaster, and so on.
That's why i despise services like soykafify or Steam, since they make you entirely dependent on the remote service (there are ways to circumvent the latter, but it doesn't matter to me) Thus, i lean much more towards shops like GoG for games, which is free of DRMs and offers normal, completely local installers, and places like BandCamp for music (or just grabbing some neat free ones, like demoscene modules/chipmusic/anything goes)>>10564
Cult of physical media != cult of analog for me. Analog is inferior in pretty much all aspects to digital, when it comes to quality, ease of editing and storage reliability. The only thing i can agree about it is that it has important historical value, and maybe a certain degree of charm to it
