It's very easy to see how gamers have ended up in the situation we are in. Broken game releases, getting kids hooked on gambling, having to pay £100 plus to get the complete game when you add up all the DLC and other things that are a detriment to the consumer.
For the majority of customers the Epic store is an inferior experience in just about every aspect compared to Steam, the publishers are knowingly giving their customers a poorer experience to make more money for themselves. In just about every other industry I can think off people would be united in saying fuck no, why should I suffer an inferior service so you can make more money?
That is the bottom line here, the consumer is expected to put up with an inferior service and features so the publisher can make more profit.
You can phrase it anyway you want but that is the bottom line. Instead of being united we have people saying shut the fuck up and stop complaining and because you are complaining you shouldn't be able to play it all. I mean seriously WTF!
Yes PC gamers, shut the fuck up and eat your shit sandwich so a multi national corporation can have bigger profits, don't complain just accept that a shit service is the new norm. Steam customers are cutting their nose off to spite their faces? Hell no, it is the people saying you should lower your expectations on what the service and features will be so corporations can make more money at your expense who are cutting off their nose to spite their face in the long run. They are telling corporations they can screw you over any way they want and they just wont accept it they will actually argue in favour of you fucking them over.
I repeat the only reason corporations are going to Epic is so they make more more money, there is no win in this for the consumer beyond some vague mumbled 'with the extra money we can make better games' bullshit. Talk about drinking the Kool-aid, it isn't Steam customers who are being fan boys here.
