I know the straight answers would be GOG but I was wondering if there are anymore game stores that sells DRM-Free games. Nothing wrong with GOG, just more curious if anything…
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind buying games from Steam and use the AutoCracker to get rid of the DRM. I just don’t want to relies on Steam too much and want to break that habit if there’s any good alternative.

Aside from GOG and itch.io there is Zoom Platform (not to be confused with Zoom), a much more obscure store selling mostly very old titles, with only a few more modern games. I found it while looking at the PCGamingWiki page for Race Driver: GRID.
Funnily enough they are the only online store that still sells that game (and with no DRM) seemingly because its publishers just… forgot that the store existed? So they never de-listed it.
Yeah, I wouldn’t put it past EA to forget that some of their developer acquisitions actually made and sold games.

Just note that while the Humble Store does sells some games DRM-free, this isn’t their focus like it is over at GOG or itch.io and a lot of game keys sold there come with Steam’s DRM. On a related note, Steam actually does sell some DRM-free titles. A fairly comprehensive list of those can be found here.
itch.io is my favorite place to buy games for all of these reasons: https://itch.io/docs/general/faq
I love itch.io and I’ve even made an Android client for it. But I wish they did regional pricing. The same game is often 2-3x times more expensive on itch compared to GOG and Steam in my region.
