    I have and Direct 2 Drive is a good place to get games. If they had a better selection I would never go to a store again. I go to EB games for the other games I can't get online. Remember though if your going to get games from an online store for download, a broadband connection is a must. 1-4gigs is a lot of time, weeks even on dial-up.

    I normally get mine from my local shop (trying to keep the local one open) Although I sometimes order games online. Got hl2 for 16.99!

    How about, how many people pirate games? :uhoh::uhoh::uhoh:


    ANYWAYS, I got my HL2 for free, and not by pirating it either. I got mine with a video card; that was back in the day though. Like a year before the beta was introduced.

    I order from the cheapest place, we poor people gotta get the deals somewhere. I love froogle because of this.
