Of course they are. The main reason why I won't support Epic is the fact that their business model revolves around catering to developers and publishers while forcing consumers into buying from their store. Devs and publishers are the ones receiving an actual service from Epic. Gamers are just being forced to use it. I'd hardly call that a service. It's the most anti-consumer store that I have ever seen and they're not even being subtle about it. Why on god's green Earth would I support something that is by its very design an inconvenience?

They don't force consumers to buy from their store, you can buy keys for their exclusive games from other stores without them getting any cut. You can also launch their games from other third party launchers if you don't like their application. Where is the inconvenience?

I've given up debating or questioning the haters of Epic. Arguing with them is like watching 2 bald guys fight over a comb.

There is an article on PCgamer which sums up why Epic is a good thing and the go to launcher for developers. Gamers need to stop being entitled and selfish and realise Devs need to get paid and recognised for their work.

Most logical and sensible thing I have heard today.
