    Yep. They also have a lot of freeware and giveaways. They are listed already.

    Great list, I didn't realise there were that many.

    Small point though, how many are region based? I know the Amazon one is because I cannot get those download services in the UK. Just a thought.

    I know you are the F2P evangelist around here so I get why all those f2p mmo sites are there, but do we really count those as digital distribution platforms? Yes they are 'digitally distributing' games but they don't really sell anything and you can't really say they are like Steam, Origin, GoG etc.

    Part of the reason why I am doing this is that I and others can know how many exist.

    Someone on Reddit asked the same thing. I don't know but if anyone can post proof per link about the regions I will find a way to add them.

    STEAM and some of the others also have F2P games within their network. Also almost all of the F2P dd platforms do sell something with the exception of Tiggit and JogoBox.

    In the end they are digitally distributing games so they go up.

    Ok, i'm gonna try phrasing it in a way thats less discriminating against the f2p sites. How many games must a site sell/offer before you can consider it a digital distribution platform? Almost every publisher has a storefront these days, and what about a dev that sells his game(s) on his own site? They all digitally distribute their games, but are they also platforms?

    anyway have some stores/sites for you

    gamesrocket
    gamesplanet
    GameTap
    pcgamestore
    gamesload(german site)
    XOGO(brazilian site)
    Kongregate

    Sell or offer - 1 or more

    Before I look at the rest - Does Kongregate allow users to dl games?

    No, but Onlive doesn't either.
    You should also list your own thread, has more games than Steam probably.

    Edit: actually you can but it's not really 'legal', but its free anyway so not really an issue

    I download all flash games that allow it or when I ask the dev personally.

    Onlive has some complete dl.

    i already have a list of all flash sites like Kongregate

    My list has no platform. It's just a heads up on whats free and legal.
