    @bdrtfm: I don't care so much about multiple launchers as I do specifically Epic and Tencent's involvement. Epic has been astoundingly anti-consumer in recent times, they've plagued us with Fortnite a...

    @bdrtfm: You misinterpret the terms for loyalty here, it was specifically about the money. Before Epic was buying exclusive it was about pleasing the customers enough to get their money, the exclusivi...

    @RadioactiveMah: You can say that but if money already exchanged hands sight unseen there really is less incentive to do as good of a job than if they had to earn every cent. And if not in one case, i...

    @Vodoo: The thing about the shareholders is 40% of the company is owned by Tencent, 50% is owned by Tim Sweeney. All it takes is Sweeney's sayso to direct the entire company anyone one way, and if he'...

    @RadioactiveMah: Just kinda dodging the question but okay.The issue with these exclusivity contracts is that the developers/publishers don't have to make a good game now, Epic paid them up front, the ...

    @RadioactiveMah: I was, and they busted ass to prove themselves. Epic has been lying and using every underhanded tactic they decried to get their way.The major difference is who is in charge. Steam is...

    @RadioactiveMah: You should be asking yourself the real important question: when did the developers/publishers become more loyal to Epic than to you?

    @Vodoo: Steam used to curate their library very carefully, they stopped because everyone hated how their favorite game wasn't on Steam. They decided to become a far more open platform and let the mark...

    @nedrith: Why do you care about the publishers? They're like the number one problem in the games industry, they're the ones who push worse games with more DLC at higher prices. Most developers get a s...

    @ValedictorianXD: Steam doesn't have a monopoly, they don't require exclusivity and even have deals with GoG to let you link your account and get your games for free on multiple platforms.Steam is als...

    @turboset: Hard to make tons of money on an extra 8 or 12% when no one buys it. Epic is buying exclusives, not earning them.

    @clarkiplier: Steam has also proven their value by remaining true to their player base and while they misstep occasionally they endeavor to fix any mistakes and be honest and as transparent as they ca...

    @Jinzo_111887: Absolutely, but this is Randy Pitchford we're talking about, he's the guy who takes contract work from one company then spends it on his own. The Aliens: Colonial Marines story is prett...

    @redhedjack: It's the first method of protest gamers have found that seems to actually do anything. Petitions don't work, boycotts don't work, the devs and publishers don't seem to listen to anything ...
