Why do people hate the Epic Game Store?
Sure, the timed exclusives are probably annoying, but aside from having to install another launcher, what are the other downsides? From what I can tell, they're offering a bigger cut of the profits than Steam is giving (30% vs 12% from what I've read) – shouldn't that be a good incentive for supporting this store, since more money goes to the publishers/developers of these games?
Is it just a convenience thing for people? Or is there a valid reason why so many are willing to boycott a game until it launches on Steam?
I stopped playing PC games in the mid 2000s so I'm genuinely interested but I don't foresee myself owning a high-end PC at all in the foreseeable future.
