Has anyone ever digitally downloaded from Amazon? There's some decent stuff there. I've only used the usuals, Steam, D2D, Impulse....
I bought ArmA2: Combined Ops from them. It pretty much downloads the contents of the game disk, which you can burn to a disk if you want. Your "CD Key" is in your Amazon game library on the same page to download it. After downloading, it installed just like it would if I had bought it on a disk. No need to be online for installing or verifying. No disk is required to play either, but if ArmA2 is like ArmA and OFP, they remove the CD check after a while anyway.

I'm considering buying GTA: IV and the EFLC from Amazon since they're on sale for $5 each. Just before I built my new gaming machine, my GTA: IV disk got scratched. The DVD drive wouldn't eject it, so I used the emergency eject hole. I should have turned off the system first, but I didn't think about it. It spun the disk up just as I hit the eject mechanism, so the disk came out spinning full speed. It would still recognize the disk, so I was still able to play the game. But I checked the disk and it was damaged, so there was no way I was going to be able to reinstall when I built my new machine.

It went on sale at my local Walmart for $20, so I went ahead and picked it up. I never opened it to install after building my new machine, and now that's the regular price for it. I could probably return it since it's still sealed.

GTA: IV and EFLC do require the disk to be in the drive, so I'm not sure how the Amazon digital version works around that. If anyone knows, let me know before I waste $10. I have EFLC on disk, but I still want to play GTA: IV again on my new system.
