That may be the case about some things, but don't sweep everyone into that same group just because they're standing up against consumer-unfriendly practices.

That seems to boil down to a game being available on Steam. If it's not available from Steam, the webz get noisy.

Yeah, not really. Perhaps you should put that brush down before you hit yourself.

Well, it makes sense to wait about a year after release anyway, to see some bugs fixed, DLCs come out, maybe wait for a sale, etc. Don't see why this is such a big deal, want the game early, go Epic, do not want to go Epic, wait a year, kinda simple.
