Don't make a metro app then. Don't make an iOS app either.

Make desktop applications/games instead.

It's not that simple, devs need to go where the market is and if the market moves toward metro apps then they will be forced to go along or struggle with alternatives.

I'm not sure why people think comparisons to iOS are favorable either, it's a closed and shitty platform flooded with crapware that Apple rules with a tight fist. I think we would all like Microsoft's store to be different. Croteam is probably complaining because of their negative experiences with other closed platforms.

I don't mind the closed system of Metro as long as I have the desktop.

On a basic "user needs" level now and in the future, I'd just like to retain the same ability to install and customize applications of my own choosing, whether they're Win32 or Metro. I am really puzzled why Microsoft has denied users the ability to sideload their own content, they could wipe out most peoples issues with the store by doing so. No one has presented a good excuse either, probably because one doesn't exist.
