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.
The Xbox store as I like to keep my games digital as they're there forever

Does anyone else feel cheated by the idea of downloadable games?A lot of games now are being sold as downloads. For example, a lot of people pre-purchased and pre-downloaded Diablo 3 before it came out. Then, when it was released, they never received a physical copy. I know that this is appealing...
