Epic Games CEO Now Officially Richest Man in North Carolina

Until recently, the position of "richest man in the state of North Carolina" didn't seem like a competitive one.

Do people still fall for his "I'm for the everyday man" image?

I'm saying it because this is the same man that sat here and fearmonged Windows 10 gaming, basically saying they would firmware steam out of existence. He tried to come off like the protector of PC gaming. Then exactly one year later, his Epic Game Store releases and now the REAL reason he was so worried about Windows 10 showed itself.

And now, that very same store he tried to "protect" is the one he's actively trying to defeat right now.

Does that answer your question Godmars290? Or do you still think wealth is the "only" reason?

When they have practically infinite wealth, gained by being ruthless in their endeavours, their gaze inevitably turns to power and domination. Because that's probably why they sought wealth in the first place.

Richest thumb, going off the picture.

Much more respectable in my opinion.
