Am I supposed to appreciate your lack of willing to understand this situation?. Not being mean, but you're likely to see it emotionally, but what does "I don't understand this, why should it bother anyone else, do for the topic itself?.
I mean, what does anyone in this thread, that goes "fuck, it's just a PC launcher", have to do with anything, outside of "my opinion is somehow very important, so you should take what I say over whatever logic could come from someone else", because that's what that sounds like to me.
Like, I can very much imagine an exact situation, where these same "I don't care, get over it" people, are going to run into some petty or serious plight in their lives, then the same people they shunned/refused to understand, will repeat what they did back to them, and then that same crowd, that waved them off will get annoyed as all hell and not see the utter hypocrisy that they sowed. Absolutely 100% guarantee it, because it happens everyday in life that it's become a living comedy show.
Maybe I should've worded my post better, or added more to it actually, truth be told it was made during my very short break at work and wasn't exactly meant to spark a discussion but more of a passing opinion, although I'm here replying now and I'd be happy to elaborate.
People are entitled to their opinions, and whether they agree or disagree with me, I really don't mind as long as they're up for an actual discussion... maybe you'll be able to change my mind on the situation, maybe not, but here goes;
I know that EGS is lacking in so many areas when compared to Steam (and other launchers I'd assume, but let's keep this between EGS and Steam). I also know that the whole timed exclusive thing is a downer for some people. However, for someone such as myself who literally ONLY buys and plays games via launchers and doesn't jump into the other aspects of Steam/EGS/Insert Launcher; the issue is not as big for me personally. Yes, there are other aspects like cloud saves and friends lists (Or whatever features are missing, I don't use the launchers extensively enough to know what should and shouldn't be there) as well that are missing but in time those will also be added and don't bother me mainly because most of the games I'm interested in on EGS (and Steam) are single player experiences that I can't see myself gaining any benefit from by having these additional features around.
I definitely understand these things might be more important for others and I'm sorry if my post read in a way that devalued those views, maybe the comparison to console exclusivity was a little out there, but I'm very open to being informed about any other problems people have (As Basil has already done) and deciding for myself if it makes a difference for me personally.Last edited by Bristow9091 - on 15 April 2019
