[The Escapist/EUROGAMER] EA Germany: "Origin Is Not Spyware" - Page 4

post #31 of 98
Time to ditch Origin and go steam, EA.
post #32 of 98
Well I don't see what the problem is. Don't install it and don't agree to the EULA, enough said right?

I am using Origin because I trust people and I am not some conspiracy theorist who thinks every company is out to get my info and sell it to the government or something.

Sorry but it's already been shown by a few OCN members that it scans far more than just the AppData and that it DOES send out info to 3rd parties.

Not every company.... EA, it wouldn't be the first time something like this occurred to them either.

Fair enough to Germany. It just shows the rest of us are so easily pushed around. I do sooo many naughty things with my PC, I wouldn't want E.A spying on my PC, oh well to late.. "Nein danke" EA!!!

This. Console port from the start. Suddenly, when they saw how people reacted to Crysis 2, they were like "Quick, quick, highres textures and MOAR BLOOM!!1!"
I don't see why I have to use Origin since it's not a required component for the game to function. It's just mandatory bloat/spamware being forced on us.

The same could be said for steam.

Unfortunately many of the threads with good info either get deleted or closed. Me thinks there's a bias mod.

Have fun sifting through 40 pages, but I think that's the one. The other thread got outright deleted.

Or they were deleted because they were all reposts or hearsay and rumor by the mods.
