I've been avoiding this like the plague until Alan Wake 2. After using it I came to the conclusion that it's just Steam without the bloat and unnecessary features. it's just a store. Why am I supposed to hate it again? I'm still gonna use Steam since most of my games are on there, but I can't believe I fell for the Steam elitist propaganda

    It's not sustainable. Epic didn't build their business on a digital game store. It's a little pet project that's losing money. Since Epic is publicly traded, investors will demand it's shut down some day.
    Valve built their business on selling games and isn't a public company. It only turns a profit and there's no one that will ever suggest they shut it down to stop losses, even if there ever were any.
    You already don't own your games on Steam, imagine not owning them nor the license to them.
    EGS is not a true competitor. It's artificially existing at a loss funded by Unreal Engine and Fortnite profits. They will yank all your games some day and give you free Fortnite bucks as an apology.

    Their business model is centered around appealing to publishers over customers. It's why their smaller cut isn't passed on to customers, and why they refuse to add user reviews. Even their free games initiative is designed to appeal to publishers by giving them a cash injection in return for games whose sales have slowed. Bottom line is if something would benefit the customer without benefiting publishers, like Steam's universal controller support, Epic will never even consider spending resources on it.

          Steam users don't just play Valve games. That'd be a pretty pitiful library that would already be older than dirt. Steam users are loyal because it's the one store that (while initially shitty) does what they need and has the bulk of the games. Alternative stores don't come close to having the games sold there, and the storefronts are shitty in comparison.
          >Epic - frick all interface
          >MS Store - Games can be somewhat sensibly managed in the Xbox app, but applications are a clusterfrick in the Store app
          >GOG - homosexualy antiquated process. Epic-style launcher interface. No games.
          >Ubisoft - I have the 3-4 Ubisoft games I want to play on Steam. No idea how their launcher is.
          >EA - Shit is uncomfortably like Epic.
          >Rockstar - Stopped playing LA Noire because of how bad that shit was.
          >CDPR - Fricking kek. They own GOG and made a second launched
          >battle.net - I have literally no complaints, but I have the 3 Diablo games on it (plus "Diablo" 3) and see no other games worth getting on it

          I can run Steam in small mode and it's comfy.
          I can buy games on mobile and direct them to install from the same mobile device so I can come home to fresh games.
          I can use said mobile to scan a QR code and log in on a random browser, therefore not requiring insecure shit like login and password entry.
          I can share my games with my brother easily and unconsciously. New Steam Families update is great.
          It's fast as frick, with servers a couple miles away in Atlanta.
          The vast majority of games are there, and what doesn't show up is (usually) not worth playing.

                fortnite was being sold as a full price tower defense game and they pivoted into the meme gamemode after the fact
                and the lootboxes were in the game from day 1
                don't cry about lootboxes when epic is worse about them than valve has ever been

                Counter-strike is 100x worse about skinner boxes than Fortnite is.
                Fortnite is actually an example of what everyone should do. They literally cover the cost of your next battle pass in the battle pass. That's the opposite of skinner box bullshit

                And that's with their coupons going from 25% to 33% during the holiday sale AND giving 10% cash back. Since it looks like they got rid of coupons this year imagine how bad the sales are going to be.

                Before factoring an anything else that means third party games brought in 37.2 million for Epic, minus the costs for staff, AWS, coupons and cashback the only thing keeping it from the red is Fortnite and Rocket League.

    Epic took a reasonable, ubiquitious engine and decided they wanted their own walled garden to lock down; this just so happened to coincide with one of their extractive shitfrick games being part of the Battle Royale rush so now they had frickloads of money thanks to kids with lootboxes and battle passes to push and other shit, inflating Sweeney's head that he was a big player in gaming (with Tencent backing, then substituted by other). So he started locking shit down, profiteering, and swinging his dick around claiming nobody can touch him because money.

    It would have been bad enough to herald the battle pass and normalize the $18 cosmetic for a generation (beyond Korean MMO garbage or MOBA shit), but the real issue is their push for exclusivity, paying to keep games off Steam. Rather thain bring any sort of feature to Epic (which was notoriously limited) as a client, they threw money at devs for exclusivity which frick them for doing so - this hardly ever happened before on PC. It was bad enough when it happened on consoles and that whole concept should die, but its worse bringing to PC where it never existed before and were trying to normalize it even for 3rd party games. That alone means I never, ever use their platform. They took a giant shit into the player's mouth,bragged about it
    >They'll go wherever the publishers go
    and tried to bribe dev/pubs. Frick everything about that and I not only will never use their platform, I will work to see them fail in every way.

    This before the Sweeney temper tantrum when it didn't make him rich and have everyone kneeling at his feet. The railed against comments, reviewer, Linux as a concept and open source, all because Valve did those things so they hated them. They sued everyone about how
    >UNFAIR!
    it was supposed to be, that they couldn't get the benefit of valve/apple/google's platforms, advertising, users etc..while also demanding to be paid on the side! Such a sniveling greedy tool.

      Yeah this was the breaking point for me. Publishers like Bethesda, Square Enix and SEGA having tons of their recent catalogue missing on Epic while having all of it plus more on Steam is a dealbreaker for me, and that's not even accounting for the ones who never bothered putting their games there like Capcom.

    On PC, it's just another client at this point I don't give a frick as long as it doesn't stop me from adding the game to steam to use steaminput or whatever. However on steamdeck, the shader sharing you get through steam makes any epic store game, or games from any other client really, a subpar experience. Can't blame Valve for having a good feature, or Epic for not supporting a third party-to-them device. But that's just the way it is. Frick exclusives though.

        That still doesn't refute the fact that they themselves have admitted they're not a sustainable business.

        Literally not even true. Epic has roughly half the monthly active users of Steam, but it also has a significantly smaller userbase than even stores like Origin, who are dedicated to a single publisher. Many people who do use Epic likely only signed up for the literal thousands of dollars in games given away yearly, which they've done to try and build an audience they can sustain themselves off of, and it's not working. Their userbase is smaller, and the users who are on Epic likely aren't spending money. What's keeping it afloat isn't anything that Epic Games are doing themselves, it's investment money from even bigger corporations that outsource video game content to them. That plug can be pulled at any time.

        twitter hasn't turned a profit since 2006 yet here we are, the point is that's how investments work, it will become profitable eventually, and the company is turning profit from other sources so it's not like they're in danger of closing

        You mean the same Twitter that got bought out by a crackhead billionaire who only made the website more annoying to use? Yeah, I'm sure the money is rolling in.

      twitter hasn't turned a profit since 2006 yet here we are, the point is that's how investments work, it will become profitable eventually, and the company is turning profit from other sources so it's not like they're in danger of closing

        It *might* become profitable eventually.

        Why are you using twitter as an example? Twitter didn't turn around and suddenly start making profit, only reason the investments paid off was because it got bought out by a billionaire.
