Steam vs GoG vs GamersGate, which one do you prefer to buy from?

I get almost all my stuff on GOG. Sometimes I'm forced to go to Steam though, since GOG doesn't have everything. The 10 gig Steam game I bought the other day's installation got corrupted by Steam. I had to redownload the whole thing. I turned the computer off when it was at 80%, and it was back to 37% when I turned the computer back on. Hurrah for Steam! I can see why so many of you love it so much.

Was that the "don't randomly delete 43% of the download" button? I didn't see that when I shut down.

No achievements - GoG (The extra stuff you get with the game is worth every penny)
If achievements - Steam

Steam first, Gog second... Uplay and Origin only if you give it to me so cheap I can't possibly say no.

And I use isthereanydeal.com so if it's cheaper on another site but still activates on steam, that's good too...

Steam's sales are usually better, but I frequent GOG too. Never used Gamersgate.

Mostly Steam nowadays. I used to buy a lot more stuff on GOG but then they axed their no regional pricing policy.

Any one else?

I avoid GamersGate since they botched up my order the two times I tried using their website. I prefer Steam/GOG/Amazon/Green Man Gaming, in no particular order.
