    I'm sorry but I wouldn't touch buy anything from them and fair enough if you not faced any problems with them but their actions proved to me that they are not a company I want to give my money to

    What did they do?

    What did they do?

    Have a google search of them, they sell stolen keys along with other stuff
    As long as you buy from sellers with a lot of positive feedback, you should be fine.
    G2A are a store front like eBay and if your gripe is that they didn't back you up when the seller stiffed you, then you have room for complaint... If your gripe is purely with the seller, you don't.

    I've bought plenty from G2A over the years (mostly under a tenner) and have never had cause for complaint... The only thing to watch out for is the additional fees for PayPal (worth it) and G2A Shield (not worth it IMO but could have protected a few of the complainers).

    There's no "think" about it - they knowingly facilitate the sale of stolen game keys. I wouldn't buy other stolen goods, regardless of the price (not to mention that it's illegal) - that doesn't change with games.

    Personally i find online keys hard to validate whether they are stolen. Do companies get hacked and keys get leaked? In which wouldnt keys be deemed invalid and just not work? Were they actually proven to be a company which sells stolen keys? If so how are they still an active company?

    I just find it weird how keys can be deemed stolen, i always just assumed they bought in bulk like any wholesaler and sold on at a lower price. Genuinly curious people seem to hate this company but they always delivery keys at a decent price, same as cdkeys.

    Ebays a prime example, people sell stolen goods there but not every transaction is through a criminal. I understand the moral point of view but i find it hard to deem every key stolen, i sell keys i have purchased sometimes for a profit sometimes for a loss and I'm not a thief.

    Personally i feel i got a better deal out of the transaction and i don't assume everything they have illegitimate. ebay has been known for people to sell stolen goods and fakes but i dont take every seller as a criminal.

    The most common situation is that keys are bought with stolen credit cards. This directly harms game developers, as when the card owner identifies the fraudulent transaction, they'd usually initiate a chargeback, which is accompanied by a transaction fee for the developer.

    Often you can't tell that a key is stolen at the point of purchase, which is why G2A (and similar) should be avoided as a matter of course. You may find that a little way down the line, the game disappears from your Steam library as it is indentified and deactivated.

    These may help you to understand the situation:

    You can of course tell yourself whatever you like to justify it to yourself morally.

    Aslong as im informed they are removing my games ill happily appeal, they cant just take it away without warning.

    I have no moral issue because there is no hard hitting evidence what i am purchasing has been stolen, like i said ebay has been known for selling stolen goods yet i still trust my purchases. Im a man of sales so if i see a good deal i take it, i find it hard to assume every seller on g2a is a scammer.

    How do you know every other seller like cdkeys has legitimate keys? I feel like you should avoid any discounted key price based on this logic then because apparently good price = stolen.

    Ill read the article once im out the hospital.

    Seriously though how are they still an active service if it's that bad?

    As I say, justify it to yourself however you like. They're still an active service because, sadly, many people value saving money more than the legitimacy of the purchase. I'm not saying that every seller on G2A is illegitimate, but purchasing via the G2A platform supports G2A themselves.

    G2A have been proven to sell stolen keys; by contrast, I'm fairly sure that we've never seen this from cdkeys.com, who are quite open that their low prices often come from, for example, sourcing keys from cheaper regions. This certainly isn't fully above board, but it's an order of magnitude better than stolen keys.

    Theres no justifying to be made. You stand your imaginary moral high ground whilst i gain my bargains
    Many of the cheap keys out there are grey market and separated bundles.
    There are keys obtained with stolen cards but it's unlikely those sellers will remain on G2A for long without a lot of negative feedback.
    Shop smart and you should be fine.

    As I said, by all means. The information in the links that I posted above explains why G2A shouldn't be supported if you care about the games industry.

    You cause more damage giving keys away by taking away the sales in the first place. How do i know you arent giving away stolen keys? You clearly dont care about the industry to be taking away money from them for self gain.

    On your logic no 3rd party deal should be shared. No more bundlestars, cdkeys, cex, indiegala, greenmangaming, no more 3rd party sellers at all. You are single handedly causing more damage than my purchase of 1 lego bundle from g2a.

    We should only buy at launch from authorised retailers provided by the publishers for them to fully benefit from a purchase. Anything else cuts profit from the sale and you giving them away cuts 100% of that.

    You've completely missed my point. There's nothing wrong in pinciple with third party resellers - the significant damage comes from costs associated with chargebacks from stolen keys. Again, please read the linked articles.

    Youve missed the point. You get 3 lego batman games for under £4. This site is hotukdeals not morals r us.

    Used G2A plenty and never required a chargeback. Also this deal is a part of a Paypal deal so i dont think they would be on board if it was as dodgey as you suggest.

    Have a nice day.
