    Like always, if I reply to obvious trolling, my answer is aimed more towards the search engines of the world than the actual poster. Leaving dubious cliams stand unchallenged, make them appear to be legit/true. In this day and age of "big data" and algorithms doing all the work, one has to play with/gamble that system. Otherwise we end up with "We've always been at war with Eurasia."

    Unfortunately I don't find a similar statistics for video games, but I seem to remember that the distribution is alike.

    Fuck you, nerds. Competition is good and the Epic Store may be a young platform with a lot of features yet to be developed but it's really good for all of us that someone is willing to challenge steam.
    This is dumb.

    The Epic store is shit because it has:
    - no search function (WTF);
    - no user reviews;
    - generally shady practices regarding personal information;
    - generally shady practices regarding refunds.

    Nobody would actually complain if their client was lightweight (it isn't) or if their client wouldn't fucking datamine your computer.

    Or if it had the incredibly difficult "feature yet to be developed" of basic search.
    Guns make the news, science doesn't.

    I bought something on EGS and got refunded after a short email exchange. Other than that it seems crap.

    i am not a fan of exclusives, and i have found their current tactic of using steam to generate presales before announcing /poaching exclusivity seemed like a shitty move. Then the company reaction of blamming the fans (The last jedi Manuver) is always shitty.

    Especially when it's hardly real competition driven by customer choice and is instead just forcing people to use another exclusive supplier instead. Reminds me of recent trade wars where in reality everyone outside a couple loses entirely.

    I think with the "competition" take we're supposed to jack off real hard to the idea that a game dev can choose between two platforms instead of one. This will apparently fix gaming

    but no one normal will care. even the weirdos here don't give a shit
