    The next game listed as free, 20xx, looks really interesting for Mega Man fans. A Mega Man style platformer with supposedly some light rouge-like elements? Gib nao! I don't know how I haven't heard of it before.

    I think they are giving way too many games. At this point unless you really really really want to play a game there's no reason to buy one. I have a backlog of 66 games on EGS and i did not buy a single one of them.

    Epic is simply giving back to the community with all the money they make.

    Meanwhile Valve continues to swim in money and does nothing with it.

    And you really think this is a viable business model long term? Mind blown.

    I do support EGS with a number of purchases - World War Z, The Sinking City, Metro Exodus + 2 expansions, etc - and a good number of their freebies as well. Appreciate their effort with their freebies, hence my willingness to buy from them whenever I see a game that I want that they have in their store.

    I find myself not browsing Steam for games anymore, unless they have a game that I'm looking forward to that EGS doesn't have. IF both digital distributors have the game I want, and prices are similar, it's a given my support or purchase would go to EGS.

    I just collect games on EGS. The launcher doesnt work on my PC without messing with it to prevent dx9 install. Works for a few days until next update. Just not worth it.

    Sounds like a messed up windows install.

    Been using the Epic Games Launcher since 2016 without issues.

    I added Tacoma to my selection of free games and while ive only played for 10 minutes it feels like Observation which i really enjoyed, although Tacoma might be slower paced it looks amazing @4k like Observation does and im looking forward to playing it in the next couple of weeks when i have the time to lose my self in the games atmosphere.

    Not really, 0 issues with anything else over 3 years when i built it. I had unreal engine 4 installed before EGS was a thing for games so yeah that. Anyways no too bothered and will be sorted whenever i do a new build.
