Hands down the best game launcher you will ever find. It's completely free, easy to request features and report bugs.The dev is very nice and it shows how much he cares about providing a the ultimate free game library on the internet.Very intuitive UI and easy to use and easily add Games or programs and metadata from various sites.Able to add games from Steam, Uplay, GOG, Blizzard, etc.
Superb games manager to unite your games library. Main feature: organisation of games which are only in your cloud library and not locally installed (e.g. steam).
Way too sparse on features to ever be considered as a replacement for Steam as a games launcher.
No social features whatsoever. In fact, nothing outside launching games. If you want to play a multiplayer game or share or discuss anything relating to gaming or games, you are absolutely f**ked if you use Playnite.
Controller support is abysmal.
Since SteamGridDB Manager can already manage multiple libraries, and it does it without forcing you to use an alternative launcher that strips out ALL the features, I cannot imagine what the devs of this application were thinking. There is no market for Steam without features, that's why Origin failed.
2/5 uninstaller worked

I'm taking a guess here, but I think the fact that it has no social features whatsoever is precisly why Playnite is so popular with its users 😉To me, too, it's really refreshing to finally have a launcher that just lets me organise and play my games, without all the noise and clutter that I really couldn't care less about.

It's the best games library manager. It's free, open source, and can be extended by plugins. It's highly customisable. It handles emulated games well. It's under very active development and the dev responds quickly and effectively to feedback.
It's the best games library manager available.
Brings together games from other platforms in a very automated and convenient way, even works with emulated titles. Also capable of importing steam categories and filtering games by tags and a slew of other parameters.
Does anyone know if it manages your Humble Bundle library as well?
It aggregates different "launcher" libraries (Steam et al), Humble Bundle is a storefront site.
