It's acceptable to rant against nitpicking things as "my game i love to play" wants to fill my pc with their advertised tiny launcher full of advertisement
But - only little do remember CD days, and only a tiny chunk does remember the days where every game you buy , you'd have to follow the developers decision with that XYZ branded andpartnered launcher, their game should come to your pc
Simply as you allowed to help the Developers by cutting away the CD Press , giving them more and more mone
~ while they only have to partner with XYZ company and put their advertisements in a tiny non malware program, which only launches the game and keeps the download active (even when it would interrupt) & does nothing more
Is someone of the majority of gamers remembering at all, that you had early on 40+ launchers ?
Can they imagine why you "would need" a launcher at all ?
But finding time to rant, that today it's made soo easy where devs even get upfront instant payment, instead of having to pre-pay CD Pressing industries, and the whole remain chain of marketing companies, just to release your tiny "game"
Who really should care on which store what game is. The devs who made the game or the consumers who want it ?
As long as their download is fast, it won't interrupt and is continuable ~ not a shareware tool, downloading it the p2p torrenting way ~ like early on
It's just nitpicking ~ but because stuff is digital, and people get the chance to have some control and influence
~ we can't stop ranting which virtual library should the monopoly / p*ssing and confusing devs by social media pressure which store they pick
