I’m extremely grateful to Epic for chucking all these free games at me for weeks on end. I hope they’re at least somewhat aware that I don’t actually think of them as a store, but as a dispenser that I can regualrly suck at for the easy dopamine hit of a free game.
I’ll never spend a penny there. Not out of principle, but for the same reason I never buy anything at the dentist’s, even though they sell all kinds of toothbrushes and sugar-free sweets and shit. I’m there for a service, not to go shopping.
Relatedly, I’m eternally grateful to GOG Galaxy for finally putting all my games in one big list. It’s definitely going to stop me from buying some stuff I already forgot I got from Epic during the other stores’ sales.
