AAA Companies fear the idea of "DRM-free" PC gaming. The biggest name games on GOG that isn't from CD Projekt Red is Elder Scrolls 3 and Fallouts 1-Tactics.

Not a big problem for me, I buy aaa games usually on ps4 and stick to indies and older games on pc currently

That.... Might seem like the most efficient way to game honestly.

efficient maybe but not the best. you are not really taking advantage of the pc hardware that way. the downside of pc gaming is of course having all your games running through a single service that can also handle achievements and friends lists. steam is the major player but even they don't sell every new pc game.

I would be all over the Steam sales if owned a gaming PC.The folks at GOG are good when it comes to classic titles.

Steam, Origin, Blizzards, Uplay, GoG.

Steam is where I buy any game that is on Steam. Blizzard launcher for Hearthstone, Diablo 3, and Heroes of the Storm (I played WoW for 6 years but don't anymore). Origin is tolerable for Mass Effect and Dragon Age, but I don't play any of their other games. I will not use uPlay under any circumstance ever - I do enjoy a cheap used copy of Assassins Creed, Far Cry, and even Watch Dogs, but only on PS4.

Steam for 70% of games
PS4 for PlayStation exclusives, Ubisoft games, free PS+ games
Wii U for Nintendo exclusives
3DS for Nintendo exclusives
Blizzard launcher for their games
Origin for ME and DA

Seems like a good system to me. Basically, Steam for every thing that isn't exclusive to a device, other than Ubisoft which has the worst service and launcher ever imagined.

You're just rolling in money aren't you.

I'm a public school teacher with a family and a one-income household. None of us like vacations or fancy things. The three of us have a very nice house and play a LOT of video games. We're happy. But seriously, probably lower middle class.
