yeah this is an Interesting thought.It's true, Steam is just as bad as the rest of them. But unfortunately it's a necessary evil as even with GOG's recent AAA uptick, you still lose access to a vast number of games. It's simply not feasible to abandon Steam with today's reality. OTOH I've banned all other store fronts, except GOG of course.
"Trivial", until your data gets leaked, your account gets disabled, or the multi-DRM fails in some way (e.g. server outage).
It's utter lunacy to even try to compare it to GOG's standalone offline installer option, which is the true gold standard of ownership.
I was all set to pick up Star Wars Squadrons from humble, then I noticed it is an epic version. I have no hate vs epic but it wasn’t worth the discount to have it on epic and hope cross platform play remains.
