Because THAT is forcing you just as bad as EA with Battlefield 3 and Origin. I see so many people complain about how much they love Steam and think it's such a great platform, yet Origin, which does the EXACT same thing is bad because it's from a different company.
Open your eyes bud. Valve is just as bad as EA but they have this drone contingency going so strong I don't think most of their audience is able to escape.
There is a HUGE difference between valve and EA. I trust Valve, They have earned my business over a long period of time. EA has lost my business over a long period of time. What they do to developers, how they screw their customers, plus EA downloader was the worst thing to gaming since the Virtual boy! So yea I think I'll speak with my wallet just like I did with BF3. There are plenty of other companies, and games. I am just sorry some studios have to suffer because they sold out.
