You may not, but many people do insist on steamworks integration. Being "ok" with it is not the same as insisting on it. You're intelligent enough to know the difference. Yet you continue to attempt to apply your subjective perspective to all steam users.
The usual reason businesses give for steamworks integration is that people insist on it. Now we both know that's not the only reason but there is some truth to it.
Business will do what is deemed best for business regardless of what anyone else may think is best either for the business or for their own personal interests. Any reason business gives clients for doing what in fact is best for their investors is about as truthful or even pertinent as the crap coming out of a politician's mouth during an election year.
You can pander perceived reasons for same around all you want but that doesn't change the fact that your statement in itself is "subjective perspective" since you have absolutely no way of knowing if and how much truth is or isn't in it.
First you assert that people who want steamworks integration aren't advocating for less market choice.
Then you assert that there are no people advocating for steamworks integration.
Now your asserting that even if people do advocate for steamworks integration (while not admitting your previous assertions were wrong) it doesn't matter. While asserting that all businesses have investors and consumer sentiment doesn't effect business decisions.
I'm not sure if you live in the same reality as the rest of the owrld so there isn't really a point to continue this conversation. Since your main objective seems to be to throw anything against the wall and see if it sticks rather than having a rational discussion based on facts.
People do advocate for games to have steamworks integration.
Steamworks integration reduces market choice.
Not all businesses have investors.
Consumer sentiment does effect business decisions.
None of those are statements of opinion based on perspective, they are fact. You are entitled to your own opinion.. but you are not entitled to your own facts. What I don't get is if your not advocating for steamworks then why are you spending so much time trying to deny facts in relation to it?
What drives you to spend so much time attempting to sway others opinions on the matter that you have more posts in this thread than anyone if steamworks is a non issue for you either way?
You're doing well to display that "cult" like behavior I was referring to earlier. Ignoring facts in order to rationalize a position that certainly seems to be attempting to discredit anyone who doesn't share your opinion of steam.how can you deny the simple facts I listed above? You don't deny, you simply jump to another false assertion, or claim its all "perspective". Its silly. I'm speaking of reality and when the facts don't line up with your line of thinking you suggest that metaphysics is the problem.
