    Is it me or is the windows store not fit for purpose for gaming?


    Having an absolutely awful time with gaming via the windows store, so much that I've cancelled my gamepass subscription. Is it just me or is this just totally unfit for use?

    Simple tasks like trying to find and launch the games I own are tediously long winded while seeing exactly what games I actually get for my 7.99 monthly subscription seems an entirely absent feature. I'm regularly trying to start games that worked fine for weeks to be suddenly be greeted with meaningless error messages and failures, searching in the search feature is just broken (no results searching in the windows store for forza while autocomplete is right there showing forza games and dlc in the dropdown), games shown as installed entirely skip out anything installed as part of the gamepass and it's as if they are not installed..... the list of frustrations goes on.

    Surely this can't be right, have they really made such a mess of it all?

    You're not the only one. Microsoft actually made a statement about the store during X018 a couple of weeks ago: Phil Spencer promises to fix Microsoft Store for PC games, commits to powerful hardware | Windows Central

    Today during X018, presenter Julia Hardy asked Phil Spencer what he saw as the future of gaming. Instead of giving some grand answer about the prevalence of virtual reality, he mentioned how he would like to fix the Microsoft Store to make gaming content more discoverable and easy to find.
