Online game store for downloading games?
Can anyone recommend a reliable site where I can purchase PC game's and download the installers directly to my hard drive?
It can't be steam as I'm after the ARMA2 Operation Arrowhead add-on and I bought the game on DVD rather than via Steam.

If you're after ARMA2: OA for the Day-Z mod, you can get the Steam version and mix the two, by the way. I'll be trying this for the mod (I have ARMA2 on Steam anyway, still dubious about buying the games separately opposed to the stated Combined Ops pack)

Q: Can i use retail version of A2 with my STEM A2: OA ?
A: Yes, You can as long as the language is supported and ARMA 2 is updated to version 1.08
Note: might not work with Polish and Russian retail releases

As for an answer to your question - none that are UK based.
When I worked for GameSpy/IGN, we had Direct2Drive, which has since been bought by GameFly and looks crap (game rentals and poor download choice?). I'm not sure of any others but then again, I haven't looked recently.

Thanks @Mako, you are correct. I'm itching to play Dayz.

25% off at the moment, so only £8.95 on there & just under half the price of Steam's offering.

No worries, and thanks for that link. Interestingly competitive prices there.
I'm probably going to be a completely awkward git and get it via steam anyway, then they're both on the same platform with updated installs etc.
Unfortunately I've nearly capped my download limit this month so it'll have to wait. Sigh.
Maybe we'll be killing zombies (or each other?) in the same server soon.
