Check out the "I need a PC!" 2010 topic. They'll lay it out in easy to understand terms and links. I just ordered a brand new build thanks to help from that topic.edbrat said:I'm not a huge pc gamer at all but would quite like to get more involved, need to upgrade my PC but have no idea how and whenever I ask someone who has the smarts its gets v complex v quickly :lol But it is good enough to play Football Manager and SC2 (on crappy settings) - only installed steam because it came with last year's FM, then added a few other games because of steam's insane sales and I still haven't even tried LFD2 but it was just so cheap. Will purchase this year's FM through steam if i can afford to nuke a fortnight of my life over xmas. Even though I don't use Steam much it is unobtrusive and helpful enough to not piss me off.
I've got a couple of games from gamesplanet, but got those 3-4 years ago. metaboli are really bad at advertising that they've actually got the gamesplanet site. although I'm not sure people who subscribe to metaboli are really even interested in paying for single games, no idea. it's mainly popular in france, had some hype in the uk a couple of years ago but not sure it's very visible there anymore.RustyO said:744 voters and not a single vote :lol
Nah, why would it be? You just need to be a little organized (instead of not at all), so as not to buy a game twice because it's on sale but you forgot that you already have it in your backlog on service X.Konosuke said:Steam only. Don't know any others and I'd imagine it would be a clusterfuck using various DDplatforms.

It'd be interesting to see how many people use Steam exclusively or whether most of those that make use of the other services use Steam as well.
