    Steam vs Epic Games Store opinions
    Almost everyone thinks Steam is a great alternative to Epic Games Store.

    Steam was better than Epic Games beacuse for having simple features like cart and evaluation system and more complex like a graphics system for developers known as steamdb. Steam at least does not buy game exclusivity ;)

    Developers can choose how much of the revenue goes to itch.io and they have huge support for indie games. On top of that, buying from itch.io will often give you a Steam key anyways so you will be supporting developers most this way without much of an inconvenience to you
