    Apart from Steam, where would be a good place to buy games from?

    Haven't bought a new game in ages except GTA 5 which I got from Steam.
    I want to buy Diablo 3: RoS but steam doesn't have it and direct from Blizzard is a bit overpriced tbh

    Edit: Sorry should've mentioned - preferably a store which offers digital download / keys. Don't want physical DVDs

    I sometimes buy physical copies from Game, they often have deals on and you can add the key to Steam

    I regularly use http://www.kinguin.net for my game codes. Never been let down, great customer service. Cannot think of a single problematic transaction.

    I've bought games from all of the following sites quite a lot recently without any issues (I've developed a serious addiction to buying games this year - averaging around 10 every month - I just can't help my self!):

    CDKeys
    GOG.com
    Green man gaming
    Gamers247
    Humblebundle
    Bundle Stars

    All of them sell keys and tend to be cheaper than Steam.

    Just remember https://www.chrono.gg on this site you get small indie games for no money at all... and if you register and log you get credits once a day. After that you can exchange them for free games.

    CDKeys is my usual go to. Green Man Gaming when they have good offers on. TBH, I've used G2A a few times and never had an issue, that's without the insurance too.

    TotalBiscuit would make a loooong video about cutting his toenails, then he'd repeat each toe, several times!

    as others have said cdkeys is my plate for codes. bought a number of keys from them without any issues at all.

    e mail within minutes of paying and no issues redeaming the keys on steam\Origin\Uplay
