    You are only looking at it from the consumer perspective. From the developers perspective, the Epic store is attractive with regards to fees, both store fees, and for developers using UE4, license fees. So if the games are only sold there, and people want to play them, they won't have a choice.

    this is very true, epic aren't stupid - they've gone after devs with money and consumers are getting free shit.

    the fortnite store is a way for epic to break into digital distribution with all that money they are making.

    The launcher is free, if PC games are "locked out" it is at their own accord not anyone elses.

    Am I the only one in the gaming population that hasn't gotten on-board the epic games bandwagon?

    No there are a few people who take every opportunity to mention how they think epic games are killing the gaming industry by getting exclusive deals.

    I signed up ages ago to get free games but then work blocked gaming sites and I kept forgetting to do it when I got home.... I still don't have any free games.

    I'll have you know that I'm doing that while also redeeming free games. :lol:

    I have no problem using their money, I'm just not going to give them any money.

    Having said that I haven't played any of the games yet and it doesn't look like I will as I have all the good stuff on Steam already.

    I actually recommended everyone redeem Kingdom Come on Epic because its such a great game.
