    Dear Microsoft, it's time to throw in the towel.
    A few months ago I wrote a piece detailing how utterly terrible the Windows 10 Store (now called the Microsoft Store) is for core gamers (or well, almost anyone, really), but what has changed since then? Sadly, not a whole lot.
    Microsoft has addressed many of my criticisms, but mainly the superficial ones. There's a new row showcasing PC games specifically near the top of the page. The "top rated" games (i.e. bad casino mobile apps full of fake reviews) are now listed at the bottom of the store. There's a section showcasing games enabled with Xbox Live, and hey, there's even quite a few decent titles in there now, including Middle-earth: Shadow of War, GWENT: A Witcher Card Game, and recently, The Long Dark. But it's not enough.
    This fall-winter gaming season has made me realize that, for Microsoft Studios to grow both in terms of credibility and mindshare, they have to give up on Microsoft Store exclusivity. It's probably too late to fix its reputation.
