    This is cool, new to this site and loving it.

      Any competition to Steam can only be good for the consumer.

        Normally I'd agree, but having store exclusive games like epic does is not good for the consumer in any way. In the past afaik, pc game exclusivity has only existed on platforms such as blizzard/origin. This did not benefit the consumer, but they are publishing their own titles so it does no harm. Making games like borderlands 3 exclusive means the consumers of existing franchises are being forced to use an inferior store if they want to play their favourite franchise's new release. This is literally the opposite of creating competition for these games and is harmful for the consumer. epic does not currently have the leeway to make a large proportion of games exclusive, but as their user base expands, so will this practice if people continue to back the store

        Giving away free games, having sales, and giving developers better deals are fine forms of competition, but the problem with epic is they are using this to get users and developers on board, while gradually creating a monopolised marked.

        Go ahead and claim the free games if you want (although unless anything's changed, this will require a credit card), but I'd urge you not to buy any exclusive games from epic as it encourages a practice that harms the consumer, which if successful will expand on the epic store and may be adopted on other stores too

          I don't have my credit card linked to epic games, been claiming all the free games fine since the beginning.

            @Huntakillaz: Weird, I could have sworn it did but it seems your right. Maybe I got confused at first by the transaction screen where it shows your cc as the payment method for a $0.00 transaction and assumed I had to keep my card linked. Thanks for the info, I was slightly nervous having my card on the site after the epic and fortnite security breaches happened, so glad I can remove it now.

            Would edit my comment but doesn't seem like that's possible

    Was wondering if these games are free forever after making the transaction.

    This site says they are. Correct me if I'm wrong.

      Yes, they are free "forever". If you delete them from your computer or buy a new computer, you can simply log in to your Epic Games account and re-download them (as long as it's still compatible with the games' system requirements)

      The exception is of course if Epic Games ever shuts down, then unless you've already got them fully installed, you won't be able to access them.

      You and the other 10 users playing games on their Macs must be devastated. :)

        Mac gaming is bigger than it used to be. :op

        Even in ye olde days, the Mac versions were often better quality and better 'bang-for-buck' than the Windows versions, although the Mac version was often much later (usually done by a different company under sub-license) - the mac version of Star Wars: X-Wing (for example) came enhanced graphics and sound as well as the two add-on mission packs that Windows users had to pay for separately.

        Apple has even just launched their own game service: Apple Arcade. An $8.99 per month subscription, after the one-month free trial, lets you play games on Mac computers and iOS devices (iPod Touch, iPad, iPhone, and Apple TV).

          There are literally no new AAA games on Mac since 2017.
          Same goes for Apple arcade. It's all casual gaming focused. Hence the name.

          If you're into casual gaming then no problem at all. But you won't see a killer app like Batman. Last of us. Battlefield, Forza, need for speed, FIFA on macs anytime soon. There is just not enough horse power on MacBooks and the video card on their work stations are built for design work instead of gaming.

            @Zyo: That's simply elitist nonsense. Of course there are games that are exclusive to the consoles, that's partly how they manage to sell the consoles in the first place, but there are a ton of Mac games.

            As far as a quick search can find, The Last of Us isn't even available for Windows, except via PlayStation Now streaming. There is actually a supposed Mac version, but I don't know if it's a legitimate one or not. Last I read, Sony was still "evaluating" Playstation Now for the Mac.

            Batman - Arkham City (Game of the Year Edition) has definitely available for Mac for a while now.

            As for the others, they may not be available as Mac versions (yet?), but there are plenty of similar types of games (Call of Duty, DiRT Rally, etc.). There are also Mac-only games too.

            Even outside that, you can easily install Windows on any Mac and run the Windows versions of games, either via virtualisation under macOS (with a speed penalty) or reboot into Windows direct with Boot Camp (with full speed and full access to the hardware making it no different to any other Windows PC).

              @DisabledUser6364: It's nothing to do with PCMR at all. I use a MacBook Pro for work. The truth is simply the hardware is not capable and/or designed for running AAA games. Putting Windows on it makes no difference.
              This can be the reason with the state of Mac games. Publishers are putting 4+ years old games (call of duty Black ops, batman Arkham city for example) on the platform because those are the games that can be run on most current Mac computers.
