It is not about the store, it is about their behavior as a company and their intentions. I use Apple but am divided on the merits of the App Store case. I do think that the way the did it though and boasted about it is aweful.
Epic loses money left and right on their store just to gain a foothold talking about how the 30 pervent cut of Steam isn't fair while knowing full well that their 12 percent cut is not sustainable.
Valve didn't use the Store to make them (only) rich, they invested in so many things hardware and software and I respect them for it.
I did respect Epic for Unreal Engine and the games until the went tencent and did the micro transaction crap. That is something I do not condone. I still am marveled by their UE5 engine though.
I have a few launchers installed and it took me some teeth grinding to install EA Origin but I was weak. Only played 1 game on it though. Don't like EA and don't like Origin.
I lived Impulse before they sold it.
TL:DR - I don't want to install Epic Games Store and don't want some Tencent stuff on my PC. So I will wait for it to come to steam in 2025 or so.
