I buy from GOG whenever possible, but I don't use their client. I use a normal browser, and I launch their games without any special client like I used to in the old days.

I tend to use gog. I get a copy on an external hard drive and use their client. I do appreciate that they have some really old games and I'm fearful in case I lose internet access which might happen if I travelled to the third world, which is unlikely.

Maybe some catastrophic event like an earthquake will mean I'll have to play offline. Always insecure.
No time for games so I twitch. Youtube is good. Two monitors at any one time. My graphics card ist krap.

Nah, Steam is my City.

But I do use GOG Galaxy for GOG games, Origin for EA games etc.

Speaking of City, Cities SKYLINES is 75% off.

I don't have a main client, I use any client when it's necessary then close it when I'm done.

Whichever marketplace has the game cheaper when I want to buy it, that's my main.

If GoG had the games Steam does, I wouldn't use Steam anymore. Actually, I would only use Galaxy to update my games, but I would run everything without a client.
Hey, how come my two cents is only worth like a half a cent?

Dunno why anyone would use Origin or uPlay. Neither lets you install games exactly where you want them, and unlike Steam, neither of them offers the option to create multiple "libraries" to compensate. Using either nets you the "privilege" of having either a very small library on an SSD or a very slow library on an HDD. Either way, piracy is a better than either of those clients in this regard.

Granted that Galaxy in and of itself does the same thing with one-size-fits-all "libraries," but GOG provides stand-alone installers for every game that lets you dictate exactly where the game goes. Galaxy, so far as I can tell, has no issues with finding and managing those games.
Logic is the antithesis of faith, else why is it that faith defies logic while logic denies faith?
