Why did this store cause so much controversy? Was it literally just steam fanboys crying that their Monopoly was being challenged?

    Literally yes. Anyone who claims otherwise is either lying to you or themselves.
    Steam built itself into an ecosystem and social network. People get uncomfortable thinking about playing a game outside of it.

      yes

      >Was it literally just steam fanboys crying that their Monopoly was being challenged

      Yep

      ignore these gays, the main reason why people rightfully shit on Epic is because Timmy thinks that holding games hostage on his store will make people want to switch over from Steam. Also

          Not true, Half life was released for the PS2 and almost Dreamcast, Half Life 2 was released for PS3 and Xbox 360 along with CSGO, Team Fortress 2 and Portal Duology which recently was released for the switch

              Why Fortnite and Unreal tournament isn't on steam and GOG

              • 6 days ago
                Anonymous

                because the pc market is a single market with clients competing against each other, the console market is a different market not competing with the pc clients which is why console makers put their games on pc and pc put their games on console but make them exclusive to their clients.

          Half life is on ps2. Half life 2 is on xbox. Steam got popular because of its features.

          Half Life was their own creation so it's justifiable. If Timmy did the same thing with Fortnite and Unreal Tournament and didn't have all these deals with developers to have their games exclusive to his shitty store then i wouldn't be harsh on him. Don't forget when he bought out Rocket League and Fall Guys and got them taken off the steam store. Sounds like he's the only here taking hostages.

    It was always about Tim trying to buy up games and create some kind of monopoly while paying developers to be exclusive to his platform. Fortunately every single dev that wasn't retarded saw Epic as being where shit games go to die, and shitty devs who knew they were shit cashed in on Tim being retarded. Now Timmy Tencent just buys you free games if you wait long enough for them to fall out of Steam and GoGs bargain bins.

    It's because they made it very clear that they don't care about the opinions of their customers. Saying things like
    >you already have the best store experience you're going to get
    was an outright retarded take.
    Also Timmy touts the store as some sort of hero saving gamers from Steam's evil monopoly, but his own anticompetitive practices like buying exclusivity has probably hurt the "little guys" like GOG more than Steam ever has.

    steam can literally never be challenged because there will never be another platform that lets you transfer your steam library to it (even if there's retards like me who don't mind starting a new steam account and throwing away their old libraries)

    Different platforms having exclusivity is something we've experienced from the start and can accept as a thing that makes sense. When a company like EA or Ubisoft (or even valve for that matter when they started steam) locked their own games into different stores on one platform that was some bullshit and it sucks but it's their games, they own them. And then you have Tim Fucking Sweeney sauntering in, flashing his tainted fortnite money around and locking other people's games into his store and that's just a bridge too far.

    They claimed to fight against monopolies and such, while using extremely aggressive monopoly tactics (and having basically a monopoly in graphics engines).
    They're basically a bunch of hypocrites full of shit.
    I did bought a DLC from them in their store btw, so I did spent some money on them (plus letting them see all my personal shit and sell it at the moment I installed their store)
