GOG, nuff said.
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.
No, buts its my primary choice.
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.
I like GOG a lot. The allure of no DRM and the same fast download and the ability to just share your games with any number of people is very good. Too bad GOG does not have as many games as STEAM nor does it seem that they care as much about bringing games to other Operating systems than just Windows. I find origin decent too but again, mainly just EA games and the sales aren't as good or as frequent as GOG or STEAM. Couldn't care less about Uplay though, too annoying.
I use Steam & GoG for my PC needs.. both have their pros and cons.. Newer games = Steam classics/some newer games (CDPr) = GoG Win/Win
And Origin since EA doesn't give you much of a choice
Gaben is 10 steps ahead of everyone
Apart from customer service where steam is way behind everyone else. They put the developer's needs first before the customers. That's just wrong and needs to change ASAP.
It's my favorite choice for a place to have all my games, but there are plenty of other great options for pricing out there. RB:6 Siege and Season Pass for $58. Win for me.
Try to keep my games on Steam for convenience. Origin for Battlefront only because I have no choice.
One of the best things about being a PC gamer is the choices we have when it comes to buying games. GOG, CDKeys, Steam, Humble Bundle, are all great services who keep the prices low due to competition. Xbox marketplace has cornered the...uh market, so there isn't too many alternatives other than buying a retail copy for a premium. Competition for digital distribution has given PC gamers cheaper games and more services to choose from.
Xbox marketplace? 2007 called.........
PS4 and Wii U for console exclusives PC for everything else
In short yeah, Steam is it
GMG Humble Bundle Cdkeys G2A Origin Uplay GOG Blizzard Best Buy Bundle Stars It pays to shop around. Steam hasn't had the best deals in a while.
