People resist change. Steam was just an annoying "thing" they forced on us in order to play CS 1.6 beta back in '02.. I ended up abandoning it and not making a new account until somewhere in 2010 because I didn't want to give up my hard copies.
yep ... I am still dissed with steam for the way they pretty much forced all the local games stores in my area to shutup shop back in the day.. Add to that all the dumbass "community" stuff steam tries to force on you and the way you have to run the launcher 24/7 to play their games (at least EPIC only force you to run the launcher to update the games) and Steam is not my favorite gaming platform.

HOWEVER, I still use steam when I am forced to as a lot of games are steam exclusive, I am not into cutting off my nose to spite my face.

yeah .. i know .. progress , a bit like how video stores were all sent broke by netflix and everyone hated netflix for it. Except now we have the streaming wars with netflix fanboys refusing to sub to Disney and threatening to pirate any marvel movies they want to watch.

I believe both Amazon and Twitter ran at losses for several years before they started making a profit. They're buying their way into the market right now. Once they get a big enough user base, they'll swap strategies to start turning a profit.

I don't know about twitter, but Amazon didn't operate in the negative so much as they reinvested all their profits for years before they started any kind of savings.

EGS does not exist to me and never will. Steam is still great and will be for the foreseeable future almost exclusively for the features it offers like streaming. However, I simply do not purchase games anymore, it is all about Xbox GamePass now. I played nearly $400 worth of games for $30, neither EPG nor Steam can beat that. Sure, I do not own those games, but if I really like the games I played on GamePass, I will buy them later on Steam sale at a fraction of the cost.

netflix gave blockbuster a chance to purchase, they laughed in their face instead.

If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.
Best R0ach Quote of all time : TLDR: Haswell might be the last legit gaming platform unless mice get their own non-USB interface on some newer architecture.
