Default PC Marketplace: Steam, Origin, UPlay and More!

What are your favorite PC game marketplaces and why? Rant, review, compare, enjoy!

I have a Steam Machine because many games are available on Steam, but there are a handful of games that I would like to purchase that are not on Steam such as Overwatch, Garden Warfare, and Recore. I could link these guys through my Steam dashboard, and there respective marketplaces to Steam, though. But it feels like that won't be a permanent solution. I have been questioning whether or not I should reconsider using Steam as my shell and redirecting to the Xbox app or something.

So I can link the Xbox app and Store to Steam and I'm going to get an Origin account. As for Overwatch, I'll just buy the game from Amazon or a retail store for PC and then create a link through Steam.

Hopefully Microsoft evolves the Xbox app to become a true alternative to Steam Big Picture, which recreates the Xbox Dashboard on your PC.

Just a heads up for PC gamers Steam and Origin are having sales on popular titles this week. Origin has Battlefront 3 Season Pass for $40 and many more.

Well I tried and tried, but I was wrong. Windows won't allow me even as administrator to access the Windows Apps folder via Steam, so I cannot link the Xbox app nor the Store app. This is why I am hoping MS brings the Xbox One dashboard to W10, so I can link Steam to it. There's a XBMC (Kodi) skin that someone created, but I wanted something more legitimate. I understand the Alpha UI is also available to download via Dell.
