    What is your favourite place to purchase video games?

    I'm personally a Steam and GOG type of purchaser and always get my games through there (I haven't bought a physical copy of a game in ages!) although I think that is mostly because I'm not playing anything on console at the moment.

    How about everyone else? Physical copy? Steam? GOG? Origin?

    I only really like 8 bit Nintendo games. I use an emulator; it's awesome and plays the actual cartridges themselves. I even have to blow on them to get them to work sometimes.

    I've never heard of any of those - LOL
    I still have my old Nintendo 64 and that's enough for me.
    I haven't played in years as I just have too mush to do, but do miss it.

    I have had consoles all my life, so as far as that goes I go with Gamestop. Personally, I have never seen how they rip everyone off compared to other retailers like Best Buy and even Wal Mart now.

    I know I can just as easily sell my game for oodles of cash online rather than trade it in at Gamestop for a few bucks of credit, but selling it online requires waiting when trading it in at Gamestop is instant. If I had a collection of games, as well as the patience, I wouldn't mind selling online, but I dont so I dont.

    I am in the market for a PC as of late, so I imagine I will be buying a number of things on Steam if a physical copy of the game is not possible. As much as I love the ease of digital downloads, physical copies makes me feel more secure.

    I'm definitely a Steam addict (especially during sales), I can't remember the last time I bought a physical copy of a game since I'm mostly a PC gamer.

    Most popular are for sure steam and origin. So I think whichever you choose is good choice. But I think that origin is much more funded bu BIG companies so by time I think that platform will win the race.
