Where do you buy your PC games?

EDIT: I chose not to make this multiple choice as to see your most "preferred" vendor. My apologies for those who have two ideal selections.

As for many of the Vendors I left out (such as Amazon), I also apologize. Please specify in a post.

I buy all of my games through Steam currently. I have installed Origin, but I have not made any purchases yet.

The only exception to this so far is buying my Blizzard games, as they only offer them through Battle.net 2.0.

You need to remake this thread as multiple choice. I doubt that people only buy from *one* outlet.

Wal-Mart or Target, cause I like to have physical copies and save money. Im old school like that

I can't stand not having physical copies for some reason, so I buy from where ever I am when I see it (typically best buy). I just worry that one day something will go wrong and steam will forget I bought a game, then ill have to rebuy to reinstal.

Play.com here - great prices and great service. I used GAME for Battlefield 3 because they sell the Limited Edition: Physical Warfare Pack for the same price as the regular Limited Edition. All copies are physical!
