If you are looking to buy pc game download on the internet, there are a couple of ways to do that.

The first way to buy pc game download online is to purchase directly from game distributors. An example is steampowered.com from value corporation, the guys that created half-life 2. You can purchase and download the pc games straight away.

Another site is direct2drive.com where there are hundreds of full versions games you can download. You pay for each game you download though the prices at almost at retail prices.

The second way to buy pc game download is to use P2P networks. P2P are peer-to-peer file sharing networks where users can share files. Due to many copyright infringement issues and rampant software piracy on these networks, most P2P networks have been shut down. The most famous is napster. There are however several companies who uses P2P networks to distribute legal copies of games.

There are however several P2P networks that are still around. Examples are limewire and edonkey. Since the technology is based on peer-to-peer, your download will vary depending on the file and your location. It is not reliable and many files on these P2P networks are bootleg copies and I would not recommend this option.

The third way to buy pc game download are paid download game sites. They are legal and similar in the way P2P networks work. Most pc game download sites charge a one time membership fee that will allow you to download as many full version pc games as you want. In terms of cost, this is the cheapest.

The quality of pc game downloads are also better and the download speed are much faster. I would recommend getting a high speed internet access such as cable or DSL if you plan to join them since the file sizes are quite large and it can take a long time to download especially if you are on dial up.

The files are also free from viruses and spyware and these pc game download sites also provides support if you have any problems. There's quite a large selection of games as well.

Out of the 3 methods, I prefer the third option to buy pc game download as it is the cheapest and it is legal.
