One of the first alternatives to anything, it started out with very low prices, pretty good website and not bad customer support. Then they started asking for IDs (because of scams) and even sold some stolen games… Anyway pretty much everyone knows G2Play now – buy at your own risk but it seems to be ok for few years now.

EA’s distribution system, DRM and regional locked games, regional shops that differ greatly from each other in many cases, poor Live Chat support.

Good Old Games


This Polish store is pretty popular as it has no DRM at all = you can install everything you buy there no matter how many times and no matter where. You need to setup an account and all of your purchases are displayed on a cool looking shelf with covers and setup files. Very nice alternative to Steam especially that it has older games mostly that wouldn’t run on modern hardware/OS without GOG’s help.


Brazillian store with games, it is not in English but you can buy just fine from any place on planet.

    I think you should check this site out REALLY cheap games and fast delivery. What more could you want from cd-key shop?:) I think you should consider adding them to the list.

      “One of our representatives will be with you shortly. You are number 39 in the queue. Your wait time will be approximately 55 minute(s). Thank you for your patience.” And on the top of that they require TeamViewer session in order to buy, what else? Shall I send them my id and credit card scans accompanied by PayPall login and password?

        Lol t how about you read before buying? If you buy a code from them directly you get the code immediately, but if you buy from a marketplace seller you can choose to buy an additional service where you can register the code/gift from the seller while their support looks if the code is legit. You can at any time choose to not do this but they won’t refund you in the case the key you got from a marketplace seller doesn’t work because, yeah, it’s kinda logical they don’t know who is lying in that case. If you don’t want that hassle simply don’t buy items from the marketplace and only from them.

          You can say all you want, but giving access to your PC via TeamViewer to 3rd party you can’t verify in any way is simply extremely stupid think to do. Also any respectable seller takes responsibility for selling failure, what they are trying to do is: either you give us access to your pc or you do not have warranty. Way to go. As for your advice about reading, I am buying simple product for 5GBP, forgive me but apparently my time has more value to me then yours to you, If I was to read all T&C every time I spend a few quid I would spent 24/7 in front of the monitor reading and I believe there is plenty more interesting things to do, although I admit if I have read it I would avoid the problem. Purpose of my post was relatively simple: to point out that G2A is trying to shift responsibility for customer in case 3rd party will not deliver, and this should be they risk for that simple reason that they profit margin should include this kind of calculations. Regarding your advice about buying form them, it is completely not necessary, there are hundreds of websites with the same prices that do not treat me as a potential fraud, even further: they will simply give you a refund if you say that key do not work and they will do it without fuss.

    hi guys, is the best for me ! I have bought 6 games till now works perfectly & the customer support is simply superb (they always answer the emails). the best thing is tht they sell scans & provide actual photo of the key !
    prices are cheapest on the net .I even tested to see how efficient they are,i posted 3 comments on there facebook wall before making my first purchase from them,i was stunned they answer each & every dam time !!!!!!

    keys4gamers is highly recommended ,simple, efficient & easy to use.As i write this I have just placed my order for nfs run limited edition version of the game :)

    Happy gaming guys .
    J Randall.

    PS : I have used cjs before but got sick of there false “release date promises & pathetic customer support”.
    I am glad i got an alternative to cjs.

    is this true? Steam Support might disable your Steam account, EA may disable your EA account etc

    I got hundreds of legal games in my libraries and would get very sad to have my account banned =)
    I’ve seen some perfect offers on games i would like to have, but was too expensive for me at the time.

    How sure are you on the fact that they will disable the accounts? if this might be a Risk, im afraid im gonna stick to the Legal Stores and digital distribution systems.

    If they only remove the game from the library and tell you that the CD-Key you were using were a NoNo, then im abit less concerned.
