    I'm honestly fine with the epic launcher. It's lightweight and simple. It does exactly what I need it to - Download the game. Period.

    I hate the cloud saving stuff, and I hate all the overlay non-sense as well. It's all just bloat to me.

    I moved my documents folder to one drive as it is, so all my games are 'cloud saved' at this point anyways.

    I assume cloud saves will be added shortly, much like how they amended the refund policy. It is something I would like to see, although I hope they make it better than Steam's cloud saves. Steam isn't very flexible at all, hard to understand what save files are what and often doesn't work. But at least you have the option.

    - Cloud saves
    - Different install versions of games in a fluid, sensible way (which Steam still lacks)
    - Gifting system / inventory for non-activated games (not sure if they have this yet)
    - If a game is sold out, tell us when we purchase it - yes I'm still pissed Steam sold me an Ubisoft game and I had to wait 4-5 days for them to send me a CD key
    - Something similar to the news page mainly for developer patch notes and whatnot

    I think that is about it for the useful features. There maybe be one or two I am forgetting, but those are the core features that are needed. Stuff like trading cards or Twitch Steamers / pop ups are bloat that I wish would be removed from Steam and don't want to see those emulated elsewhere.

    Nah. Steam users have highly refined and discerning tastes. I'll let you lap up the slop. :p

    Just kidding, but yeah, I prefer Steam.
