Having to SCROLL through the entirety of epics store, when there is now quite a decent number of games being sold on it highly emphasizes the design and UI implementation. Well, lack there of anyway. The sale, especially with Epic eating the cost of the sale is pretty nice, but god… The store is REALLY hard to try and get through to see what is actually being sold.

  1. I like the design of the product page but they really need to make a better store home page. Apps designed with mobile phone UI generally doesn’t work well on PC.

  2. I thought I’d **never** make it through those *fifty^51?* or so images! That’s like… (less than) a tenth the size of my Steam library.

  3. I hate epic but I don’t know if I hate the design because I’m used to steam. I don’t care for steams big picture design either. I also dislike other stores designs like Uplay and origin. UI is tough to get right.

  4. More and more Web Layout Designs are favoring **bigger** than now the standard 1080p design as they also know that `Gamers with Money` to buy their games are choosing 4k or better than 1080p monitors to browse those deals. So if you’re a *”Common”* gamer with 720p/1080p monitor to browse such Sites, their Web Design causes many annoyances to you as you’re not their `Target Audience` like you having to *”Scroll Down Entirety”* which won’t be problem for 4k screens.

    Bigger Tiles are becoming a norm to fill the voids of such 4k displays that Origin Store had switched to it months ago that Store, especially with Sale Cart on Top, looks like crap on older 720p laptop displays due their disregard for such display’s existence even if web pages can be designed for [All Resolutions](https://www.w3schools.com/html/html_responsive.asp) without any favoritism.

    Sadly the Holy-Grail **new** Steam promised OverHaul is *”also”* expected to include/embrace BIG THUMBnails when released that, your every visit to steampowered.com will also could very be annoying to scroll down to see most content as `Eye Candy` is now more favorable over giving more options/choices to the Informed Customer.

  5. This. I might have even attempted a purchase if it were not for it’s lack of any sense of UI/UX. No search or filtering on desktop site. The experience feels like a fake gray market site selling you keys from China. Wait hold on…

  7. > quite a decent number of games being sold

    What? There’s legit like 30 in total. You have more on Origin and UPlay lol.

  8. I found myself disgusted at mouse-button 4 and 5 not doing anything, at random thumbnails filling half the screen. The searchbar works well(I’d prefer thumbnails instead of just the names, but it works), but is surprisingly hard to find camouflaged in the upper corner there.

  9. Come to think of it, is Epic even making money off their store? All I hear of it is paid exclusivity deals, free games and sales where they take the cost. In spite of all the money Epic has been throwing at it, I still see news like launcher issues, publishers pulling their games off the store, and a fair bit of dissent over their decisions. Granted they have Fortnite and UE3 licensing money, but this whole venture feels like a money pit with a dubious payoff at some unspecified point in the future.

  10. You know what I hate most about the Epic Store? Looking at your game library, and the game icons are colorless unless they’re installed. UGH!

    On top of that there’s nothing to do in the store. I’d like to read user impressions of WWZ, but I can’t. I’d like to watch some clips of Ashen, but I can’t. There’s literally nothing to do besides fire up a game, and I really dislike it. It just feels like a subpar experience.
