    I bought games from g2a before they went full fee invasion and started charging for more than the usual. Last game I got for a friend was 6Eur. I ended up spending almost 9. I only buy from Steam now.

    I got the game no longer than a week ago. As I am doing the Paypal checkout I get the following additional fees:

    - G2A Shield (used to be into the shopping cart already)
    - 22% VAT
    - "Fees"
    - "Paypal fees"

    I don't believe for a moment they didn't pay any VAT up until now. They pumped the prices. Also, "fees"? And "Paypal fees"? Don't charge me more just because I use Paypal, since my "safe payment" doesn't mean shit without your stupid G2A shield anyway.

    Steam sales and Humble Bundle. Most of the games I have are from humble bundles.
