Will you consider the Epic Game Store your new default library?

View Results
Never, I'll stick to Steam thank you very much
Maybe, if I get enough freebies to get me started
Sure, if they will let me link my Steam profile to bootstrap my collection
Why not another store indeed, if the prices are right

The worst is that it uses a lot of bandwidth doing nothing. When downloading, it was using 2MB and there was only 500kB of data for the game I was downloading. Where was the rest going, I don't know...

That would be a shame, they offer them for Free so they should stop crying, that People come and get them for Free.

Its open for everyone, so they should accept it or else should make, only Free for People where buyed a Game or more already there. But i hope, they dont. :D

Game is overwhelmingly positive on steam and never bundled. I have wanted to pick it up for a long time and this is a great chance. Id call this an extremely good deal, i think its just your perspective.

And it's cool for people who think Stranger Things is all that because it's the 80ies and OMG the 80ies must have been so awesome!
But yeah lived through it once. I don't need the nostalgia. Looking forward, not back.
Again though, that's just me. Good for anyone with nostalgiatis or millennials who think everything was better before they were born.
