It's 2020, no you don't. Get a USB drive if for some reason you're stuck in the 90s.
Way to be a jerk? People still use optical drives. Not everyone is a l33t gamer

Some of us actually still use optical drives. For those people who just don't understand the fact. And buying an external is a waste of money unless you need a portable. Don't listen to the wannabe's they doubtfully even know how to install one in the first place.
And smartazz..a floppy is not an optical drive.

This is like people saying nobody should need to buy a wallet any more because everyone uses Apple Pay. A lot of people still use optical drives for a variety of purposes. Tech uses, movies, music, whatever. Or not even an optical drive--maybe you want some kind of external gadget like a fan controller that mounts in an external bay.

This also reminds me how drive bays were always a major factor for why cases are as big as they are. Now that these cases have no optical bays, no external bays, and only two 3.5" internal bays, you're dealing with an empty metal box. Kinda silly unless you're one of the minority who will actually be installing a large water cooling radiator unit in the front. A few years ago a case this size would hold two 5.25" and six 3.5".

Seriously inhibitive airflow from the front but otherwise good budget case line. I own the mesh variant as well as the glass front panel one.

This so much. I used a Blu-ray drive in my HTPC for a while until I finally broke down and bought a PS4, so now I can use it when I want to watch a Blu-ray either because I got a free Redbox rental or because I want to see the bonus features. Now it's in my backup system for ripping purposes only. Also, some of us still occasionally purchase CDs for our favorite bands and some of those people might want to rip lossless audio from them.

And those are just a couple of use cases. If optical media was dead, Blu-ray and physical game disc sales wouldn't still be a thing.
