    The timing isn't very fortunate, but considering all the genuine contributions to the industry (from iconic franchises to Unreal Engine), it's still well deserved. Their recent pooparoo doesn't take away much from that.

    How some you guys act like a 2019 Guy. Truely offended by something that doesn't affect you at all.

    Epic Games gets an Award, and?
    Yeah they do Shady shit, but who doesn't?
    Does it this excuse they do shady shit? No.

    Just step back and stop acting like sjws and like a Karen demanding for the manager in a wall mart.

    It would be hard to overlook all the good things Epic has done over the years. The Unreal Engine has become an industry staple and powered some of the most beloved series of all time. Not only that, average users get to fiddle with it too, often times ending up making games of their own. Think what you will about their store, Epic deserves the nomination - an award for their contribution to gaming is long overdue.

    They could get fined up to 4% of the yearly profits

    Oh please, what the fuck has Valve done these past 5 years? Nothing! A fucking card game meant to capitalize on the success of Hearthstone? Amazing!
    Valve has been stagnant for years.

    They added a refund policy and is still one of the few PC stores to have one. They cracked down on non relevant comments on games that were made to make the company look bad. Actively remove/ban games that contain spyware and malware and in some instances refunded the users for the games if requested(I think, could of been hear say). Found out that CS:GO was being used to attract underage gambling and quickly stopped the places that did that and went after the company's doing it. Redesigned the UI to better work with more hardware out of the box. Supported a FUCK TON to Vulcan/Linux support for games so they could run on Linux even if it was not made for it and did a great job in my opinion. I'm sure I can find more that was in the past 5 years only if you need.

    How about forming the entire VR Market into a Streamlined, Open SDK that can be used across all Headsets? How about inventing Lighthouse, the best VR Tracking Solution there is and Open Sourcing it? How about makeing Linux vaiable for Gaming with Proton? They did hell of a lot more to help the Customer that Epic did.

    I cant speak for you, but most people speaking out against epic dont really even care about any of that except that it lets them trash Epic. Most of these people trashing Epic praise google who have done a hell of a lot worse.
