But you're wrong. If I'm trapped in my room because someone is forcing me in there, or because someone got too drunk and fell unconscious, blocking my door and me inside, I'm still stuck in my room. In one case, someone did it intentionally, in the other case, it's just how things happened, but I'm still stuck inside.

Epic buying exclusives is not good for the consumer and is not analogous to developers using Steam as a platform for distribution while selling elsewhere.
What is good for the consumer is having more entrants in the market. It's arguable that EGS would survive to be an entrant without these tactics. GoG for example, has been around for more than a decade, is still a tiny fraction of the market, and would arguably be out of business if not for the other successes of CDPR.
To prevent CV-19, avoid the Serious Seven: weddings, funerals, faith-based activities, bars, gyms, house gatherings and other small events.
