Fanatical is fine. I order from them quite frequently. And they are absolutely on isthereanydeal. I get emails daily from them mentioning Fanatical deals.

Hrm, you're right, there it is right off the main page of isthereanydeal, Fanatical.

They just didn't have competitive prices for the three games I looked up!

How legit/scammy is Fanatical now? I bought a few things off of them when they were Bundle Stars, but the prices seemed suspicious.

Fanatical isn't even listed on istehreanydeal.com, so it makes me wonder if they are in the same ballpark as G2A or some other sites selling game keys bought with stolen credit cards, etc.

I'm trying to avoid supporting sites like G2A in the future.

Y'all are way too pessimistic. The GOTY of the first game has been selling for €4.99 for years on sites like Fanatical (formerly a.k.a Bundle Stars).

Shadow of War DE could be nearing sub $10 towards the end of the year already or 2019 spring/summer sales at the latest (on Fanatical, GMG etc.).

The base game was available for $16.37 on GMG recently.

You can frequently get really good deals on Warner Bros games like Middle Earth and the Batman games on those 3rd party sites. The price will come down crashing hard for the holiday sales.
And if it doesn't then no big deal cuz there is enough other shit to play all the time.

Aaaah there it is. Now we just need a €9.99 (or less) price tag on this edition and then we're talkin' bizness.

In 4 or 5 years.

Well I agree, but that is probably going to be a long wait, the base game is still $59.99 on Steam.
