OPINION: Too Many Game Launchers

To be perfectly honest with you, I am already getting tired of the Epic Launcher and all their “exclusives” personally I don’t think it’s a step in the right direction for the gaming industry. It doesn’t benefit me as a customer in any way that I have to open 30 launchers in order to play my games.

“What’s next, 30 diffrent lanchers for 30 diffrent games?”


I *might* have been interested in getting Metro: Exodus, considering I own both Metro: 2033 and Metro: Last Light. I don’t think I am interested anymore. Personally I think it’s awesome that Steam is finally getting some competition, however, I don’t think exclusives is the right way to go about it.

There’s numerous launchers out there – Steam, Battle.net, Uplay, Battle State Games, Twitch, Origin and of course Discord has even become a gamelauncher now to name a few of the big ones, plenty of which are lacking certain features or elements that just doesn’t make any sense. Most of these launchers are only used to play a single game.

What’s next, 30 diffrent lanchers for 30 diffrent games?

Don’t forget – that if I want to play Battlefield for instance, at least the new ones, it isn’t just Origin I need to go through, it’s also Battlelog, I understand DICE/EA trying to prevent piracy, but how does this benefit the honest customer at all?

Sometimes I wish we could just go back to good ol’ CDs. Whatever those are.
