But it kinda is.


Nah, stuff like the social club is baked into the games themselves and bug you constantly to join and try out their new features. So it's fine.


A launcher is something that you interact with for 2 seconds to launch the game. So it should be boycotted.

I mean, you could buy and launch games through the Rockstar Social Club. So it was a launcher.


Yeah, this.

In fact I believe I got a copy of GTA V and it could only be redeemed on Rockstar Social club thus I had to use it as a launcher.

If you can launch games directly from it (which you can) then it is a launcher.

You couldn’t launch games through social club, running your exe forced a log-in for social club prior to the game launching. You couldn’t open a RS Social Club app and select a game to download or launch (in fact, you needed to use an internet browser to download individual installers for any game bought directly through RS’s website). Social Club was more akin to a DRM than a launcher prior to this.
