DoomSooth: The remaster of Ghostbusters works, if you make a shortcut and add -EpicPortal after the executable. It's only for Windows.
uPlay titles aside, I could find no way of getting The Talos Principle to work offline. It would throw up unusual in-game Login and Password boxes seemingly hard-coded into the game or it wouldn't even reach the main menu (from what I remember it just got stuck cycling between asking for a login vs showing the initial pre-main menu startup screen). Trying to bypass it with /c=.. -AUTH_LOGIN=unused command line switch didn't work, nor did copying the command line variables that the Epic Launcher creates (without the client running). If anyone knows of a way to do so please post as Talos Principle is a very highly rated title. And yeah I suspect devs have to ask for DRM to be added / override it rather than it be default (something Steam should have been from the start too).
StingingVelvet: Tetris Effect and Red Dead 2 are honestly the only games I have played off the Epic Store that required the client so far. Even though it's optional on Steam I'm guessing it defaults to yes, and the Epic Store defaults to no? Or something like that.
