Original DOOM 3 Off Steam

As noted in some irate posts on the Steam Users' Forums, the standalone edition of DOOM 3 is no longer offered on Steam and is difficult or impossible to find on other digital distributors, where the newer DOOM 3: BFG Edition has taken its place. As noted on Eurogamer, the problem is that users have not yet been able to get DOOM 3 mods to work with the BFG Edition of the first-person shooter sequel, leaving those interested in a mod-friendly edition of the five year-old game with limited options (they mention the Super id Software Pack, but this no longer seems to be available in the U.S., either). This does not mean all hope is lost, however, as they have the following quote from a Bethesda rep on the situation: "We do realize that there are fans that would like to purchase the original version of the game, and we're looking into options for them. When there's new info to share, we'll let everyone know."

You were acting like there is no other option in the world other than digital which is incorrect. I was offering you another option, a solution to your problem ;)

No, I wasn't acting like that, I was sympathizing with people who want a legitimate option to obtain older software and have somehow lost their original copy. Acting like everyone should just pirate things or have a permanent digital copy is retarded. Again there is no need for software to be sunsetted like this with digital distribution services.

The game is stored on a CD. That CD can be converted into a digital "backup" copy that you can store anywhere. You do not need to keep the original CD.
