    Shame on you if you still don't have it.

    I'm not sure if the devs are actual socialists, but a socialist company can sell products for profit without contradicting themselves provided the profit is distributed amongst the product's producers equitably or according to their labor contributions.

    Wow, that socialism sure sounds a lot like a merit-based capitalist system.

    Your ignorance of political economy is betraying you. The fundamental socialist critique of wage labor is that it does not pay workers the value of what they produce. The remuneration of workers according to their labor contributions is antithetical to the concept of wage labor, which dominates capitalist economies. Splitting profits equally across the board is even more radical, and the fact that you confuse that with capitalism is just muddle-headed. Most worker co-operatives don't even adhere to that standard.

    Reminds me of a Friedrich Hayek quote,
    "If socialists understood economics they wouldn't be socialists"

    My new favorite Steam game is to torture my SSD.

    Install Destiny 2
    Uninstall Destiny 2
    Install Destiny 2
    Uninstall Destiny 2
    Install Destiny 2
    Uninstall Destiny 2
    so on

    Ever since i achieved godhood my 1Gbit/s fiber it is the best damn game i have ever played. It feels so amazing to play that when you are no longer mortal with tiny 30mbit/s. Only unfortunate thing is that my godhood can't be fully realized because i wait 25 minutes instead of 12. Steam max download speed is 60ish MB/s.

    Meh is an euphemism tbh. They've become plain shit, outside of maybe really old games that everyone owns for at least a decade and that are better bought on gog.
