Bait and Switch tactics I am against. Hence my disdain for the Epic store.

Competition however is a good thing... I personally refuse to have a dozen store fronts running on my PC though, but props to others who don't care.

The other issue is fragmentation of the PC market... We have already witnessed multiplayer populations fragmented because store fronts wish to run with their own technology. (I.E. Windows Store vs Steam.) That kind of thing shouldn't happen on a single platform, it would be like Xbox online populations being cut off if you were to run a game from Gamepass rather than from the Store front. It shouldn't happen.

Valve does need to get off it's laurels and start making games again, Half Life, Left 4 Dead, Portal, Counter Strike, Team Fortress, Day of Defeat, Alien Swarm... They have a ton of great franchises at their disposal... And they are simply squandering the opportunity, that's how you build good-will and a customer base, with quality content.
