Forums - PC Discussion - The Epic Store won't accept 'crappy games,' says Tim Sweeney

I was excited when they said they were okay with the R rating but then they said no porn games and lost me haha I don't hate on other genres why they gotta hate on mine. :'(

Because they (and a few here) want you to buy games they want you to buy and play, not what you want. That's what full on curation is all about. 



               

Rip most Visual Novels then xD

Also the guy said something along those lines : "Epic Games Store is making the industry better but gamers don't see that."

Shouldn't be surprised that he gets some sense of animosity towards him when he can spout stuff like that cuz some people don't agree with this point of view.

I think this is a good move although the mountains of crap on Steam never really affected me. I never go on the store not knowing exactly what I wanna buy. So as long as the search function works, I don't see the asset flips and other cash-in games.

Also as long as you don’t buy crappy games , you won’t see crappy games

I don’t understand why people can’t just avoid what they don’t have interest in

its the same logic when going to a physical store, you aren’t gonna like everything at the store or agree with it but you move on cause you go shopping for something you know what you want lol

Steam is the reason why I even got into visual novels 

 

I think I have about 100 or so VNs lol

It's up to me to decide what is crappy or not.

@Basil So you are okay with Steam filling up there library with unfinished, unplayable games costing ridiculous prices accessible for the general public? I guess you have no issues with school shooting simulators and rape games aswell because you can just ignore them.. cool. Maybe one day your kids might play them instead, but its okay because you can ignore them.

My problem with Steam is what they release are not even video games, and if they are than its a bad image for video games.

I used this example before in a previous post.  The Steam achievement system is broken, because now you can buy games that automatically unlock 60000+ achievements all for a low price because of Steam allows it. Whats next. The economy is being destroyed and all you guys/gals say "we can just ignore them"

Unfinished/unplayable games? You mean like the early access games?


Sorry but I have in my tags to remove such games so I dont see them nor do I buy them.


Kinda like how I dont go to certain aisles at the store - for an example, I dont go into the women's aisle where they sell women products because...I'm not a woman?

Link me a store page on Steam that sells those games and dont bother linking me a youtube video or some news article of someone who complains about it.

I mean an actual store page that has Steam's web address in the URL.

You sound like some old christian  pastor who screams "PRAISE THE LORD" 100 times every Sunday as if that actually does anything to begin with.

 

I dont plan to introduce video games to my kids. Education comes first, second comes work and all that ties down to becoming independent so they can be successful and intelligent enough to make good decisions.

Now they can get into video games or w/e  if they want once they are of age and have their own money from the work they commit to as long as it falls in line with the laws and regulations of whatever nation we live in.

I agree, Artifact is a piece of shit "game" which is why its losing players and should be losing players.

 

But who cares, there's plenty of other games to play to worry about something so insignificant.

Getting achievements is nice, I'll probably get one of those bundles soon that has those games to increase my achievements.

 

As for the economy, the only economy I care about is my wallet and my bank account.

 

 

Like I told a certain other negative nancy, leave the economic analyst work to people who work in the industry.
