Steam, owned by Valve, is the number one digital gaming client on the Internet right now. They provide games compatible with Windows, MacOS and Linux PCs, as well as their own Steam Machines – the controllers of which are compatible with PCs. They have frequent sales, dropping prices to next to nothing, which has helped propel them into the insane popularity they’re experiencing now.

EA does Steam. New EA PC games will be released on Origin rather than Steam, making it worthwhile checking out if you’re into the big name titles that EA release.

Games are also given away on a regular basis meaning you can largely populate your games library with freebies, and frequent sales that take games to rock-bottom prices. You might find yourself paying full price if you’re looking at newly released titles, but it’s worth keeping a look out for a bargain or two.
