Me 11. Problem is, I see bargains on Steam and GOG which part me with my money simply because it's so easy to click that buy button, then I often don't even install the game!

I purchase my games at the store. Specificaly Steam and valve games. They install alot faster if you have the disk, rather than downloading it off the web

I'm usually Steam exclusive for PC games, but I recently bought ME2 from Amazon cause it was on sale.

The concept of Desura is nice but the UI is horrible and it's not really working yet. A long way to go there.

Yup, a bit long way to Desura's perfection. Just a little bit.

But once there, Steam may have to fear... since onwards there will be only a way upwards... :-)

steam used to have a very basic UI as well. In fact back in the day it used to be bashed all the time.

Not only back then... it's still crap nowadays so nothing changed... except some GUI brush-up :P

There's a beta currently on Steam where you can opt into trying out Steam's new GUI.

What exactly is wrong with Steam? I've got a funny feeling people still "go with the flow" from back then, Steam is great nowadays.

Box and manual
1.i don't know what it is but i need a physical copy of the game to really feel that its mine and because if it isn't a steam based game i can sell it

2.im not old enough to own a credit card or debit card and my mum is paranoid that every thing you buy off the net will get her bank details

I like boxes because of the cover and the happy gaming moments that come with it and the manual to read/see some things about the game while its installing(mostly units/weapons) :D And from internet or steam is sometimes more expensive...Also if my steam account gets hacked...Bye bye games! o_O
