Please use this thread to debate the merits of Steam being the dominant online game store. Also feel free to share your thoughts on some of the alternatives, such as: Gamefly (formerly Direct2Drive) GamersGate Good Old Games (known more commonly now as gog.com) Green Man Gaming Origin Some questions to ponder: How confident are you in the long term viability of such services? Are you concerned you'll look access to your games? Do any of the alternatives to Steam do things better? How so? Are the secondary services Steam offers (chat, Steam Workshop, etc.) just as important as having everything in one place? Which is preferable, being able to sell used PC games or deeply discounted pricing during sales? Do you want both? Is the lowest price the bottom line, wherever that price may be? Half-Life 3: Real or imaginary?
