I've said this a million times, I'll say it again:
You don't even need origin running to play your games
please, go try that with steam.
edit: and shame on EA for putting their game on their service. Tell me what other digital platform I can play counter strike/TF2/half life/L4D/L4D2 on again?
What about offline mode? Who cares, 50 megs of ram. If you can't afford that, don't bother installing a game.
Second off, if Valve were to go offline, I can guarentee you they would compensate us in some form, like an option to download the programs that were paid for. EA is a money greedy publisher, and in the past nothing good ever came from them in terms of compensation. If anything they've always had a deal with it and screw yourself attitude. Steam has been for the gamers, not develop them and create dlc to put out afterwards while developing the main game.
People, another point... Stop using the word fanboy. You sound like 12 year olds. People PREFER things and you're getting mad about what others like to use. Seriously, shut up. It's cool to talk about something but be less insulting when doing so.
