    Such a stark difference in quality between the games Epic gives away vs Steam.

    Steam 'giveaways' are an absolute joke, having said that Epic are spending an absolute fortune on freebies to gain market share.

    To be honest its better for consumers if steam loses a lot of market share to Epic.

    I'm at like 60 games on the epic Launcher having never spent anything on it... with no intention to ever spend anything on it :T

    That said, Steam givaways are usually done by the game makers themselves "not Valve", the purpose is usually gaining attention for an upcoming game by giving away an older game in a series or sometimes before the game is removed from sale due to licensing on music present in a game expiring they might give it away, or sometimes a small indie game gets given away for free for a limited time to gain a player base for the purpose of getting feedback.

    Then there are studios that give away poorly performing "games" for the purpose of trying to get people to buy the micro transactions.

    The thing with steam is that they offer the (steam achievements) plus extra items as badges/ card or ingame items that you can trade or sell by real money, that's very cool and that motivate a lot people to play in that platform.

    You can only sell if you buy a game.

    Steam is greedy af.

    I know, i'm from Venezuela and i'm living here, and is very sad the situation, also yup Steam is super greedy, the last time that I remember I had my market alavaible was in 2006 when my bro bought counter strike 1.6 on Steam, and the market only last for 10-15 days. Now they ask you to buy a game.. meh :/

    But i still loving the steam achievements that motivates me more to play the game.
