What is the #2 gaming platform ?

Specs: Windows 10, lots
I have this simple question: it seems like Steam is the greatest and most used game platform, for PC gaming. But it surely isn't the only one. In that I'm excluding the vendor specific ones like Uplay and Origin.

Steam has a massive collection of games, in fact, all popular and new games. But my question is: what if you do not use Steam, but you want to play games on PC ?

That means, the same popular, new titles - any title in fact - and, all in legal manner, obviously.

What are th options really ?

Are you answering my question, or are you just posting random information ?

So, the best platform next to Steam, is Steam.

Are you serious ?

According to Wiki From the Steam entry:

"As Steam has grown in popularity, many other competing services have been surfacing trying to emulate their success. The most notable major competitors are Electronic Arts' (EA) Origin service, Ubisoft's Uplay, Blizzard Entertainment's Battle.net, and CD Projekt's GOG.com."

Which one is #2? Your guess is as good as mine.

I downloaded it, but the Epic launcher still doesn't want to launch. I was expecting something to go wrong, you can't just get a free game without any effort.

But, Epic games, is one of the sites where you can only get games from 1 vendor. Like Origin, Uplay and some more.

How can they compete against Steam ? There's no way

Origin, Uplay have only their games, their content is 3% of that of Steam.
And Blizzard, they have just one game they offer. I think they call it a game server, not a game selling platform.

GOG actually is the best answer until now ... But it lacks modern games, as it is a platform for older games.

I'm asking you. If I would know, why would I post ?

That is extremely interesting. So, you confirm you understand the question in the opening post ?

No clue what you're on.
