Wut? You know you can buy PC games other places other then steam correct? GoG? Origin? Uplay? Windows store?What's unsustainable is that the capital investment of developing games is greater than that of running a digital store and the ratio is more than 70/30. What's unsustainable is that Steam has a monopoly on game distribution.
I want games to be more profitable for developers and publishers because I love the medium and want more projects to become financially viable.
Just because devs and publishers choose to release only on steam sometimes doesn't mean they have a monopoly, it means they have the best place to sell their product.
