People who say "no steam, no buy" must be joking, right?

Why deprive yourself of good games, just because it isn't available on a DRM platform. lol

GOG bless you.

Read everything, listen to everybody, believe nothing, until you can prove it through your own research. For that is the true mark of intelligence.

Yeah, it makes about as much sense as people who refuse to buy anything off Steam.

Sometimes it's said seriously, sometimes it's just trolling.

I'd really have to *want* a game badly for me to purchase it on Origin.

I generally won't buy standalone games on PC anymore. So yeah, most of the time I prefer games to be on Steam. Obvious exception is Blizzard games.

I like the support. I like automatic updating, library organization, community features, etc.

If it's not on Steam, it's really difficult for me to get. GOG is an option, but because there are no prepaid cards for GOG, it means I have to use a prepaid credit card, which means GOG games are a lot more expensive than Steam games (since Steam now has prepaid cards in Canada that have no tax and are worth their full value in American dollars...om nom nom).

Origin however, I wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole. It's just too nasty to use, and supporting it encourages the industry to have each publisher own their own DRM storefront :/
