PC PC game launchers (and their desktop icons) as ranked by Kotaku

Recommended Posts

With the ongoing fragmentation of the PC gaming landscape, Kotaku decided to have some fun and rank the current batch of PC game launchers both by the quality (features, etc.) of the launcher itself as well as rating their desktop icons based on a 5 point scale.

 

Launcher ranking:

1. Steam (icon - 2/5)

2. Battlenet (icon - 3/5)

3. Epic (icon - 3/5)

4. GOG ( icon - 3/5)

5. itch.io (icon - 4/5)

6. Uplay (icon - 4/5)

7. Origin (icon - 5/5)

8. Bethesda (icon - 1/5)

9. All those other random launchers, like Nexon or single-game launchers, that pop up whenever I turn on the office PC and I have no idea why (icon - 1/5)

10. Windows Store (icon - 0/5)

Origin 5/5 for looking like a black hole.

That's just how forward-thinking EA was!

Yes, concentrate on making your icon awesome and your games bad. :p

Pretty bad article honestly, especially if you expected it to look into the nitty gritty.

And even as far as minimalist store design goes, Uplay kicks Epic's launcher to the curb.

Steam's where he bought his first PC game and he never learned you can disable the pop-up? Sounds like modern games journalism! :p
