    Eh, epic launcher will eventually get there. Epics platform is way nicer to developers and social media "influencers" than steam is, and obviously the deals they're cutting are better than steams when you see these exclusive deals popping up.

    More competition in the publishing department is a-ok with me. Maybe steam will get off their asses and make HL3 a steam exclusive to compete.

    Agreed. I think Epic could have done a better job if they gave a little more time to improve some things and add more features. As much as I bash Epic in it's current state I still want them to give Valve some pressure to get their shit together. I doubt we'll ever see HL3, Portal 3, or TF3, but I'd still at least like to see them improve functionality on Steam (The web browser overlay needs a major overhaul IMO) and do a better job filtering crap from their store and doing a better job with their guidelines for games.

    Well the Steam redesign is apparently finally coming.

    As for your other points, Steam is like that because developers complained so much about the restrictions on getting their games on the store, so Valve just started letting everything in. Can't have it both ways unfortunately.

    I'd love to see Epic actually provide a competent alternative, even tho I know eventually I'm gonna be forced to use it as long as they keep snatching up exclusives. Once I get thru the backlog of games I have atm I'm sure I'll be getting Metro Exodus from them, and Control looks quite cool and is another game they made exclusive to their store.

    Yeah I suppose that's fair. I just wish Valve had some kind of trust system or something in place where when you first start out you're a bit limited on what you can put on there until you earn a reputation. Though like any system that can be easily abused.

    Also let’s not forget steam sucked ass and nobody wanted to instal it when I believe the orange box or one of the half life’s forces you to install it to play. Steam got as much flak then as Epic is getting now. Times chsnge, I don’t like exclusivity deals but these launcher ones are some of the least intrusive and shitty ways, and as I stated before, “features” don’t appeal to me at all, I don’t use them. Epic needs to grow fast or fade into obscurity, Steam has been the only real launcher for a long time for most gamers, I can understand the aggression from epic early on, but I do agree they should have made their platform more complete first.

    So, so summarize, I don’t like what epics doing to force growth, I just don’t give a shit a lot harder. If it gets steam to stop being a lazy bloated asset-flip shit hole even a little, or becomes a better steam, win win.

    I forgot about the controller settings. Those are a good selling point, but even with that I couldn't care less what launcher it is really. I've had Steam since the alpha and have no attachment.

    I can understand different launchers isn't that big a deal although annoying. The features I couldn't care less about as long as the basics are there. Can I play with friends with ease? I never used Blizzard features when I did Overwatch. Admittedly I would be rather upset if there was no controller support but that seems more a game issue than launcher. I hate Big Picture Mode on steam.

    One of my bigger concerns is security. I keep hearing accounts of EGS having terrible security. To a point where people may get alerts a couple times a month of false logins. There are the rumors they're linked to selling data to China but just rumors and who doesn't sell data these days?

    Really though for me, like many others, it really isn't about having a million launchers installed on my computer at once. If that was an issue I would've given up on gaming long ago since I've had bullshit like UPlay, Origin, and NCSoft launcher installed for fucking years. The real problem is how slimy and underhanded Tencent/Epic have been with their dealings. Forcibly buying out studios and titles to force themselves into a higher market share. Might be good business, doubt they'd be spending all these millions upon millions of dollars on exclusivity arrangements and outright "guaranteed sales" for studios if it wasn't, but I never said I liked how predatory business is as a whole anyway. It's basically adding yet another big player in the Sony/Microsoft(lol) timed exclusivity bukkake that is the gaming market and, while it probably won't negatively impact any of us, it's just so dirty and gross to me. But it is what it is. My data has already been sold by plenty of companies already so adding another one on that big pile of shit doesn't really change anything. I just hope the Epic store manages to compete with Steam's big sales so I have a reason to build an Epic Launcher library.

    I kinda fear this is like a kickstarter that ends up unfulfilled. What if everyone moves away from Fortnite? Has Epic set themselves up enough to not rely on the income?
