Where can I safely buy cheap PC games?
When it comes to buying games, not only does the price matter, but also the version, region, and device. Games for consoles, like the Xbox or PlayStation, will be redeemed differently than game keys for the PC as all our listed stores are verified and checked monthly to uphold the best service standard for our users. We will always make sure to uphold the best quality and competency with our partnered stores, so you can shop for any games and be absolutely at ease as we take care of all the hard work and only allow trusted stores with guarantees on GameGator. Grab a coffee, buy your games, and you are good to go!
How much does a PC game cost?
PC game prices can vary a lot. Typically, prices range from less than $1 up to $800 for premium editions. However, editions aren't the only deciding pricing factor. Many factors actually play into the final price of the deals we acquire for you. The key factors usually are edition/format/complexity/launcher/age. Obviously, editions vary in price, as f.e. premium additions include much more gameplay/features than regular editions but still require you to purchase the standard game. Format and Launcher play hand in hand together. At the same time, steam prices tend to be cheaper in comparison to BattleNet or Epic Games prices. Additionally, complexity plays a crucial role in the price the developers give their game. The more work they put into elements, units, worlds, characters, and storylines, the higher priced the game is. So, simply said, the best games will cost a pretty penny, but are guaranteed to be worth the money and time you put into them. But either way, GameGator will help you snatch the cheapest deals.
Best & safest way to save money when shopping for PC Steam keys?

What are the key aspects to consider before buying PC games?
To make sure your gaming and shopping experience is always of the best quality, there are a few things you should look out for. System requirements: Before buying a PC game, you always want to make sure that your PC will meet the minimum requirements to run the computer games. We provide all system information needed; simply scroll down on one of our game pages, read up on the required operating system/disk space/graphics and process components, or internet access. If all checks out, you will be absolutely able to run the games on your PC without any problems. Age rating: Before buying any PC game, please pay attention to the corresponding USK or PEGI labels. These will tell you which PC game is suitable for your child or yourself or even ideal for purchase. Genre: While any genre in gaming can be fun, you can always make sure that the game will fit your general playstyle. You can head over to our genre selection and browse for fitting games there to sort by genre. You can also check up on current PC game deals on our deal page, so you never miss a cheap game deal.
Why are pc games cheaper than console games (XBox/PlayStation)?
All gamers agree that no matter if you play on a console or PC, we are still all equal and are united by our passion for gaming. However, there is one thing that distances PC Gamers from Console gamers, which is the average price for games. In general, PC gamers will pay $20-$25s less per game than console gamers (Source: Andre Marchand & Thorsten Hennig-Thurua). Most agree that the price increase is primarily due to extra licensing fees developers have to pay Samsung/Microsoft to be able to release the game on their platforms. So, if you are hunting for cheap games, it might make sense to focus on using a PC for gaming, especially considering the access to many more PC games.
How do I redeem a Steam Key on PC?
With Steam probably being the biggest PC gaming platform on the market, it is no wonder that there is some confusion on how to redeem a Steam key correctly. While there are multiple ways to redeem your cheap PC game, we will quickly cover the primary way through the Steam Client. For starters, it is necessary to have a registered Steam account on which you will redeem your Steam Key / Steam Code. If you do not have one yet, you can register an account here. After your account has been successfully set up, you will need to download the Steam Client, which you can do so here and log in with your account credentials. To register a game, you will need to click on the "Add a Game" field at the bottom left and select the "Activate a Product on Steam..." option, which will open a pop-up window. In the pop-up window, you can then paste or enter the Steam Key you received from one of our connected stores into the "Product Code" field. After clicking on "Next", the key will redeem itself, and the game will be permanently added to your account. You will now see the game in your Library, where you can download and play the PC game. With all that out of the way, you are now ready to grow your Steam account into your very own gaming library! Happy Gaming!
How does our price comparison for PC games work?
The best way to explain our process is probably to compare how you usually buy your games vs how you grab a cheap game from GameGator. Usually, it all starts with you searching for a cheap deal for a game you want to play. What follows is a rigorous lookup of all PC game marketplaces, like G2A, Eneba, and CDKeys - so you can find out what the cheapest price for the game is. After what probably felt like hours and 100 tabs in your browser, you compare the prices and find the cheapest deal. This is where our price comparison GameGator shines. We take care of all the hard work that goes into looking up exclusive deals, finding coupon codes, and comparing prices. GameGator helps you search for a game, see the cheapest price for that game literally within a second, and you can decide if the game is cheap enough for you to buy. If the price is still too high for you, you can then create a price alert, which allows us to remind you the second there is a deal for a game you want to buy or if it drops under a certain price threshold. We will then send you a quick free message, so you will never miss a deal on that game!
What to look out for when searching for cheap video games?
One of the main benefits when using GameGator is always the security and safety that comes with our platform! Generally, when we list deals or websites, those websites were previously verified and checked by our team. Sometimes, games can have special deals or special requirements. We advise you to always make sure that what you are buying will be able to be activated in the correct region or works on the system/platform you are looking for. To help with that, we have included a lot of additional features on our game pages, which will allow you to sort games per region, extension, included-bonuses, DLCs, platforms, and systems. Should you ever be unsure about a deal or if it will work on your system, you are very welcome to reach out to our support through email or directly through Discord. Our support team will be happy to assist you, and we usually have a response time of a few hours.
