Even if a game is removed from the store (Xbox at least, I don't know about others. I haven't been in the PS/Steam/Nintendo ecosystems long enough to see any of my games removed) you can still download them. The license is still attached to your account.

For example, Marvel vs. Capcom 2 was removed from the Marketplace years ago, but I can go download it right now if I want.

Of course this only applies as long as the Xbox store is around... but it's a safe bet that that will be quite a while.

Meanwhile, thanks to disc-rot, your disc based games will only be playable for a maximum of ~40 years... lol.
