    Usually I only buy video games in this online shop. It's simply and by far the best video game shop in the world, they have the most amazing video games - highly recommended  B)

    Oculus store and Steam store almost exclusively. I recently bought Forza Horizon 4. I had no choice but to buy it from the Microsoft Store.

    The Oculus Store whenever possible because Valve are a bunch of see you next Tuesdays that can't count or refuse to count to three. I'm surprised I haven't gotten around to sending GabeN a turd in a box yet tbh.

    No surprise tbh, partly due to bugs and partly due to their bizarre decision to turn the game into an MMO. Hopefully people will be avoiding the game like the plague and Bethesda will learn NOT to make this daft design decision again for the franchise.

    For VR: Oculus store. I'll buy from steam only if it has native oculus support (not the lazy steamvr method) and is cheaper.
    For non VR: My order of checking is usually: GOG, GreenManGaming, Steam. I check Humble Bundle occasionally (and buy a ton of cool audio/video software) but I don't usually look there for specific games. I've bought from Gamers Gate too (the paradox interactive owned store, absolutely no relation to that other similar name without the "s"). They are good for harder to find russian titles.

    I really should go and throw around some money on Itch.io. There's probably over a hundred games on there that were made by my students. :) Plus they have the best percentage to developers (Itch.io only takes 10% by default, compared to 30% by steam/oculus/ms/apple. You can choose other values from 0% to 100% too);

    I definitely avoid places like G2A. They harm developers. As one dev said: “If you’re going to be buying Defender’s Quest from us then knock yourself out! But if you’re going to buy it from a grey-market key reselling site like G2A, then, please, please, just pirate the game instead.”
