For me personally, I have a few reasons why I pre-order games.

I like physical copies too, and I still buy them, but I have patience, I don't have to absolutely get it on day one. And for most games you can still get a physical copy within the first couple of weeks at MSRP. And for the must-get-on-day-one and don't mind digital, there's that. I understand preordering for products that are supply-constrained where you have no other option to get it if it runs out, but games rarely falls into that category.XFactor11 wrote: ↑ You can sell, lend or trade it afterwards if you don't want to keep it.
With Digital downloads it will take hours before you can start a game due to having to download 60-120+ GB of data for most high production value games.
Installing from a disc is much faster. Games like Black Ops Cold War take up 200 GB of space.
Even with two PS5s, both of my systems are full and I use a 1TB SSD external SSD to install last gen PS4 games between them.
The Amazon pre-order will likely come late and it does not seem to have the pre-order bonuses that other places offer.

But the most "RFD-relevant" reason that could apply to others, though, would be for Amazon's pre-order price guarantee. I have a few examples from over the years, but one that quickly comes to mind is Xenoblade Chronicles X. I had it pre-ordered on Amazon for something like $55-60 (during an E3 promo).
Randomly one day, Amazon price matched some price error from a retailer and I saw it in my order details for $15-ish.
The price shot back up to the correct price at some point because when I went to look at the game's product page, it was showing the regular retail price. But by then, my pre-order already had the "price guarantee" happen for it.
When the game's release date eventually came, I did get the game for the $15-ish plus tax.
Ever since then, I pre-order from Amazon the games I am interested in getting just in case. And ever since then, I have randomly gotten some games priced lower than their launch price due to Amazon's price guarantee.
