Did Valve poop in a bunch of people's nests or something?
I know, right? Where is all the Valve/Steam hate coming from? I've seen this mob mentality so many times before it's damn obvious that is what it is.
I have used the Epic Games Store (EGS) to buy Ashen (great game BTW), and that's it, because the Epic Games Launcher (EGL) is lacking in so many areas it's hilarious that people would ever prefer it to Steam.
Some of the things that EGL doesn't have that Steam does (in my most important order):
1. User reviews
2. User mods (Steam Workshop)
3. Integrated controller mapping
4. Integrated discussion forums
5. Friend functions like inviting to game/text chat/voice chat
6. Streaming capability (Steam Link)
And the list goes on and on what the Epic Games Launcher doesn't have and likely won't have.
You people who think Steam is bad and the Epic Games Launcher is better are fucking nuts. Next thing you'll tell us is that the Bethesda Launcher is the creme-De-la-creme of store and game fronts and Fallout 76 is actually a good game... WTF?!?
I understand how competition is a good thing, but we already had that from publisher run launchers like Uplay, Origin, Bethesda Launcher, etc. How is Epic getting exclusives COMPETITION? Here's a hint, it's NOT.
