Lies, Sweeney said it sold better than Metro:LL on Steam. Hope someone posts it to Sweeney's Twitter.

@pc_rocks: Yeah, that was the original, not Redux. Seems PR talk is not solid this year.

sure it has nothing to do with the game being "Epic Exclusive"

Wow if this thing flopped on PC that is an absolutely sad thing.

4A worked their ass off and the PC version was excellent.

@Ant_17: I got Metro Exodus for free with my RTX 2070 purchase back in early April as part of the promo and the fact with any RTX purchase guarantees a free copy of 3 games like: Anthem, Battlefield V, and Metro Exodus, it wouldn't surprise me if any RTX owners ended up picking Metro Exodus over both EA games see themselves as a wise move pick because I can play the other two for free with EA Origin membership.

I'm not all that surprise if the PC version isn't selling well due to being part of RTX promo and few PC gamers are waiting to it comes to Steam.

Question, when you got your RTX 2080, did you however get a free game with it? If so, you also get a free pick (see above comment) like Metro Exodus.

@davillain-: I think I was meant to, as Canada Computers was apparently one of the applicable retailers. I didn't get anything, and TBH, I completely forgot.

When Publishers are effectively trying to normalize platform specific exclusives knowingly to the detriment of their user-base, the consumer should not be obligated in the slightest to support them back.

And very few actually have the consumer in mind, Epic Store has had a circle of industry back-scratchers vigilantly defend them against the "toxic" consumer as one Polygon pleb put it.

Simply, don't support it, as money is all they ultimately give a shit about. Everything else around it is perfunctory. Only shit they care about.

PC gamers have them the finger. Looks like it flopped on PC. I feel bad for them if majority of the sales were on consoles since I don’t have a single friend that bought it on consoles.

Along with that fat ol' cheque to also grab devs. Consumers don't seem largely interested. It'll be interesting to see what happens with more games.

@lundy86_4: “master race” was actually a sarcastic depiction than a compliment yet you guys ran with it.

If you’re going to go all in on using the term and calling gamers who use consoles peasants than then perhaps don’t be low class and pirate games.

It’s just so cringe to know how that term was used at creation and how hermits wear it like a badge of honor now.

And yet cows seem to get all the hate. Well that mostly this board but still.

Alaska pays ~$1,000 a year to live there. To a struggling inner city street hooker that's not a trivial sum of money. But the population density is only 1 person per mile. It really makes a businesswoman think

Because the engine it ran on was hot garbage. And it was a bitch to optimize for PC. Remember how GTA IV turned out on PC, especially at launch? Even after all the patches, and modern hardware, the game still runs like a turd relative to the graphics it has.

Funny how it takes the worst installment in the series to sell the most on console.

Oh yeah and an exclusivity deal on a shit-poor online store.

Objectively this will be PC players just choosing to wait for the Steam release.

Also 6.8 user score on MC seems to paint an average user score, i bet it's mostly moaning about the store though not the game.

Even if Epic was being dirty, I still wouldn't pirate and I'm against it. Even most PC gamers can get the game even cheaper by heading to CDKeys. As for the "Master Race" it's just a gig ya'know.

#46 Posted by Melkari (595 posts) -

I lost my hype when they fucked off to Epic. While I enjoyed the first couple games, I have no desire to play Exodus, or anything published by Deep Silver, after that anti-consumer bullshit. Even when it comes back to Steam or others next year, I really don't care about it anymore. Same goes for any game that starts off being available on multiple open storefronts that gets bought out exclusively by Epic. I absolutely refuse to support the behavior.

Until then, I was pretty excited for it. 4A are outstanding devs, and their publisher turned me away forever. If they get a new publisher that doesn't shit on customers like that, I may get excited about their games again.

As long as PC continues to get the substantially best version of multiplats (most video games, lol PS4 gets the worst version of most games) and the most amount of 9/8 scoring games I certainly don't mind what other people are playing.

But just to clarify your post, PC's top played games are:

  • LoL (not a MMO, and played at a higher skillcap than 99% of Console titles.)
  • Counter Strike:GO (higher skillcap than 99% of console titles and a great game.)
  • Overwatch (PC version is played at a higher competitive level than 99% of console titles, and is a great game.)
  • Hearthstone (you win here)
  • Fortnite (same as consoles)
  • Apex (same as consoles)
  • Rainbow 6 Seige (same as consoles)
  • DOTA 2 (Played at a higher skill cap than 99% of console titles and a great game)
  • PubG (you win here)
  • World of Warcraft (Not F2P, high skill cap for Arena and mythic+ than anything on consoles, and still good)
  • GTA V (uhh...one of the highest scoring games of all time).
  • Arma3/AC:Unity/Borderlands 2. (I don't see an issue here.....)

That's like 2-3 cancerous/embarrassing games. You really made it out to be worse than it really is. In fact, PC has by far the best selection of games to play this gen.

BTW, what are PSNs top 10 played games? I have a feeling it will be more of what you described. My preliminary research shows it is mostly just CoDs and BFs, the ultimate casual shitfests and far less variety. Imagine the most played games on your system being online shooters - and playing them on thumb-sticks. Yikes.
