I dunno, maybe it's just me, but I don't need to be told WHY Epic is paying for exclusives. I get that part.
The part I don't get is why being upset about it isn't seen as reasonable. Or how it's somehow a "good thing" for consumers.
Another competitive store? Yeah that's a good thing for consumers for sure.
A store that pays to remove choices from the consumers? Nah.
Doesn't seem complicated to me.
For sure, it's totally reasonable. People aren't rushing out and setting cars on fucking fire. They're discussing it on the internet and *gasp* not buying games on the EGS until it actually earns their business. How dare they exercise willpower and act like rational consumers?! I am shocked I tell you, these gamers are upset and out of control!
When they did their recent sale I applauded it. They actually took a subsidized hit on many of the games which was to the benefit of customers. That kind of behavior is good for consumers. Buying exclusives? Not good for consumers. This isn't that complicated.
