So does this mean patches for all existing games (if GFWL is discontinued) to remove GFWL? (Reminds me of when Rockstar finally relented and made installing that God-forsaken 'Social Club' optional)

You know, say what you will about it, but I'm just happy to see that they're still trying to do something with PC games. They could have abandoned them long-ago flat-out and never looked back. It seems they didn't know exactly what they wanted to actually do in the PC gaming industry (whether to make it unique or a seamless transition from consoles) but at least they tried (and continue to, albeit at a very slow pace)...

I recall all the bitching and complaining that STEAM got when it was released and was required to play Valve's games and then others...but now most prefer to have it as an option when buying a new game...

Listen, I'm not a fanboy and I'm not defending any kind of stance, I'm just callin' it as I've seen it. Some have had nothing but problems and despise it and some couldn't care either way. At least they tried is all I'm saying...
