Agree with you there on the books, the smell of paper is great. However plenty of small-time writers are doing digital these days (since I guess it's easier to have your shit published if there's no printing cost attached to it) which sucks. Same with physical game copies. I just like having a big pile of the stuff I own around me, sometimes it even inspires me to re-read or re-play something I forgot existed.I'm cheap and most forms of entertainment aren't worth the prices they ask for them.
I still buy actual books because I don't like reading them on a display.
