Game Subscriptions?

Do you guys buy games through ea, steam, Ubisoft or amazon.
I was looking at buying battlefield V but all the media points me toward buying it from ea, that’s fine it’s about the same price as anywhere else! but in order to buy it I have to subscribe monthly to ea games in order to play, what’s worse is if I unsubscribe then I no longer have the game anymore .
Now cmon? I am not going to pay ea fifty odd pounds for a game, plus 4 pounds odd a month to play it and if I leave I loose it all??
Seems I can buy it from amazon for the same price and have a digital key that I can ( I think) use on steam or Ubisoft at no extra charge.
Can any of you gamers confirm which is the best way to go on getting it and only paying once.?*

Are you sure about the subscription Rob W.?

I think you can pay for it one off or do the subscription...just looking at Origin here. Deluxe includes some subscription trial but you still get the game AFAIK

I buy games on Steam in the sales and then don't play them 😮

One or two titles I get on Origin just because I had to...one or two I get on Uplay...simply because if you buy them on Steam it installs Uplay anyway...

B5 is EA's game so no matter where you get it youll have to activate it through origin anyways. if that is what your asking 😛
Ofc I think you shoudnt buy any EA games' games ^^ cause they are everything there is worng with this world 😜 and also b5 is just a shooter you can deifantely find another grand shooter on any platfrom other than origin.

Hey, I usually use Steam to by something interesting, they often offer good discounts
