It doesn't make any sense that they wouldn't fill their store with their own product if that's what you mean, but it could also be that it's their back catalog that doesn't sell well and they want only the top sellers for their store right now.

I mean, one of the things that whiny crybabies cry about on steam is that there's too many choices to make and they'd really like it if someone went through and sifted everything out so that they didn't have to do it (as if you actually have to sift through every game on the store). So they'd like the fact that right now Epic doesn't have a lot of stuff to sift through. Fewer choices make tough decisions easier!

No because that's not what irony is.

Ironic? Nope.
Guess what classic game this is and I'll give you... a virtual handshake:

This kind of argument comes up all the time, especially when someone uses it in anything other than the "dramatic irony" form which is probably the one definition everyone goes to when they're going to make this stupid argument.

Irony is a figure of speech which is a contradiction or incongruity between what is expected and what actually occurs.


So if TC expected Epic to have more Epic games than steam does and sees the opposite, then that is indeed irony. Maybe YOU don't find it ironic... This would still qualify as situational irony, where you expect one thing and get something else.

It's just not ironic given all the facts though. I mean I guess Joe GameFAQ'er can just make this thread because it was a fleeting thought in his carb-overloaded mind and he needed the endorphin rush from the responses. Call me "fun at parties" but it's a pretty dumb thought when you apply any sort of logic to it.
