GamersGate is okay, but for some reason they can't compete with Steam's prices. Which is especially emberassing when it happens with Paradox titles, as Paradox and GamersGate were once one company.
It might have something to do with the values of the currencies used in the stores compared to my own currency (NOK), but most of the time, especially for newer releases, GamersGate.co.uk (£)is quite a bit cheaper for me than Steam (€). Ie, 49.99€ for a new release on Steam versus (currently) €41.18 on GamersGate.
The exception would be the various holiday sales. Steam tends to be a lot cheaper then, regardless of the less favorable currency.
I still use, and like, both though. I wanted to like Impulse too, but half the times I looked for a game there it was restricted to the US, so I gave up on it.
