Yes. There's not as many. Or even copies that are made.

But they're still made and sold in stores and online.

Yes but Physical games like from Bethesda only contain like 4GBs of the game on the DVD. Which means you have to download the rest of the files from Steam anyway making it kind of pointless.

Yeah even indie games are struggling to be on DVD.
So pretty much no one bothers. There might still be cereal box games around.

Overwatch had a physical CD available, but IDK how much of the game was on it since I had the Beta still installed anyways. Blizzard's other games seem to get physical copies as well.

EA/Origin games still get physical boxes, but they only have download codes, no actual disk.

Bethesda likes physical copies, too, but they typically only contain a small portion of the game.

Witcher 3 has physical copies as well.

they are and you can generally get them at better prices than digital if you don't mind recycling/throwing out a useless disc/keeping them on shelf.

its nice when places have to clear inventory because it actually takes up physical space on their shelves =p

Yes, but rarely. Most physical games in the modern day are usually just the Steam code and an outdated version of the game. Maybe in countries where the internet service is terrible they are more prevalent.

I buy pretty much physical copies only. If I can't display my games along with the 3ds, wii u and gamecube games it doesn't feel right.

They invariably require you to tie it to steam or origin, so.... sorta?

It's part of why builds are fazing out disc drives

even if its just a steam code inside a case its still technically physical because it takes up space on a store shelf.
