they all fucking suck, every single one of them, yes ubisoft, yours sucks, so does your riot, and yours too epic, fuck all of them for making us use their shitty launchers you buy a game on the only decent launcher? you launch it to play, but no, fuck you, you need to make ubisoft account and use their shitty software like why do these devs think they will ever dethrone steam, just so fucking annoying

maybe Microsoft eventually ends up buying every other company out there and makes them shut down their launchers , like they did with Bethesda

nah monopoly is always a bad idea , regardless of which industry. But yes the launchers should be getting rid off when they dont pan out. Like i dont understand the need of having your own when your game are available on Steam for purchase.

the main reason people dont like monopoly in other sectors is lack of competition and the exploitation of the consumer, but with games its not like products, even if all games were by Microsoft, people would not buy expensive games because no one really needs to, they would just be pirated way more often at some point, they know this, this is why any sensible studio doesn't price their games over maybe 40 or 60 US dollars, just look at forspoken, a brand fuckin new game with a peak of 9k players because of their outrageous pricing meanwhile elden ring at 60 dollars instead of 70 fuckin euroes for some people, peaked at almost a million, I know its not a good comparison but it's real, games over 60 dollars perform like shit almost every time we are paying for a product at the end of the day and if that product isn't good, people wont pay for it, so its in even a monopolies best interest to keep the consumers happy in the case of a hobby like gaming

admittedly, some games are worth a lot of entertainment, like csgo for example, if valve suddenly decided to say fuck all of us and made us rebuy the game for 70 euros, I would unfortunately have to buy it because csgo is such an amazing game and I spend so much time in it, there is no price you can put on thousands of hours of fun, but you can get that kinda fun in a game like forspoken or elden ring or wither because they don't have the kind of replayability that multiplayer games have that being said if Activision released a new COD at 70 euros no one would buy that shit because its not a proven game most likely

well your argument is actually flawed on many levels. For instance with the advent of DRM and Denuvo, the crack scene has taken a massive hit in recent years and virtually any game that has Denuvo Anti Tampering doesnt get cracked. All the past crackers are gone , the scenes and groups are closed and only actual entity trying is Empress. I know this because i am active in the cracking scene and rarely any AAA game these days gets pirated because of the tampering softwares that lock you out. The Quarry and Dying Light 2 were released last year in February and havent been cracked for example in a year. Up until yesterday both had Denuvo but it got removed in last 24 hours and i am sure their cracks have already surfaced. Microsoft say can basically hold a monopoly and infest all their games with this tampering software and never remove them in the future , forcing people to buy them out if they wanna play it since there would be no hope for getting a crack. Of course with this move many people and crackers might retaliate and perhaps the cracking scene finds another way to counter this, but Deunvo has been a thing for years and in response the scenes and groups have already shut down, only Empress fights back. Regarding pricing and newer games, well the publishers have already started pricing their games above 60$ citing new gen of consoles as a reason however, you yourself in your comment proved that its not the pricing which is a problem but rather the quality of the product a consumer gets when one pays the money when you take Elder Ring and Forspoken as examples. Ranging from the problems with the game and its mechanics to its performance problems which seem to be a norm with newer AAA games now is why Forspoken is doing very poorly. In contrast, Elder Ring doesnt suffer from these problems and there being a big Souls Like genre community helps in its sells too , but arguably its a polished product that everyone is willing to pay big bucks for because they know what they get in return is a great quality game. Now sure people wont pay for a product which isnt good and turn their attention towards the alternatives . which we see in action everyday but what if there arent any alternatives ? What if every other option is controlled by the same company whose product turned you down in the first place ? In other words , what if there is no other alternative to look up to ? Thats monopoly. HOWEVER , your last line is the only relevant supporting point when it comes to establishing monopoly in the gaming industry. Unlike the other big groups and corporations that want to be the sole puppeteers of the basic necessities , gaming in itself is a hobby or a luxury. When the times get dire, when shit hits the fan and when the crap by a corp gets too much to handle , people can just let go off gaming completely and find other hobbies or ways to pass their time. That obviously isnt fruitful to any company that deals with gaming industry so it is in their best interest to never escalate to such an extreme level where no one buys their product because again , its just a hobby , not a necessity.

i don't really care that there's multiple launchers, but more that it's so difficult keeping track of friends across the different brands.
