Competition is good for the industry including consumers like us.
Where is that competition from EGS? Where is it right now?
And it's not like there's not already tons of other stores already. Uplay, Origin, Battlenet, Itch.io, GOG, Windows store etc.
What's the only special thing about EGS compared to the others? They bribe for exclusives, that's it... Exclusives have nothing to do with competition, it's the opposite of competition.
This argument makes zero sense and it never will.
His argument about the cut of the sales isn't either, for the reasons outlined in my previous comment's linked video in this thread which I guess I'll link again in case anyone missed it:The Epic Narrative - The Mortiel Fallacy: May 9, 2019

What demonstrable benefits are consumers receiving from EGS exclusivity?
None, zero, nada, zilch. Quite the opposite, it only had negative impacts.
