i wouldn't go so far as to say that...

my main complaint is that it is just another freaking account i have to keep up with, to manage video games. I will be very happy when i can have one application which will manage everything from Steam, Origin, and all the others that will inevitably follow.

here is one thing I "hate" about it that I just figured out. I set my origin to download games to my E drive rather than my SSD and that was fine but after the last origin update it defaulted back to C!! FAIL I had just downloaded a game too and now install / redownload to E....grrrrrrrr

I don't hate Origin, I don't mind another account, as I already have probably over 50 different accounts for different programs, websites, forums, etc. what's 1 extra to remember? you don't even NEED to remember... just set it to auto-login and you're set...

It's not Steam! ?! really?! so? I don't use Steam more than I use Origin... I only used Steam since MW2 because it forced me to download it... but I don't like it any more than anything else I use... it's just got a few good sales, that I've bought a few games with... I don't talk to people on it, I don't do anything on any groups, I just play my games that I bought...

(but that may be because I'm big on single player and not very on multiplayer... even when I do, I don't mind sticking with randoms...)

in fact, lately I've been using Origin more than Steam, because of BF3 and now, ME3...

People hate because it's "cool" to hate, so they just hop on the bandwagon...
and there's negativity ALL over the internet... there's ALWAYS someone hating on something... and MOST of those arguments are just plain ignorant or stupid

almost 90% of the hate comments I see are talking about the same few points that are completely IRRELEVANT or aren't very important... and some just repeat what others say without actually trying to understand where that came from... a good example is not origin related but a bit similar, where ever since that article claiming you "have to buy 870$ worth of merchandise to enjoy ME3 to its fullest" some are simply using it without understanding what that 870$ is composed of... and jump onto the ME3 hate-bandwagon and claiming it as a "fact" that isn't even true...

numbers and words are VERY easy to twist them in a way to mean something entirely different...

hell even words from the leader of Anonymous/lulzsec which most of the "haters" look up to are lies... (apparently he was the reason there were numerous arrests in the higher up Anon-members aka. selling them out)


I just enjoy things as they are... not the way I wanted it? almost nothing is, I just get used to it... wasn't what I'm used to? I learn to adopt it... no feature I wanted? if I can find a mod/fix, I'll try it, if not, I'll just live with it...

as Kelly Clarkson sings it, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger...

ever tryed to deal with EA with regards to origin? i found it impossible to change something so i opened a chat with them they said it was impossible and they couldn't do it. (i wanted me XBL gamertag removed)

sent them an email and they can... also told the guy that i had proof that they could (about 5 posts in their forrums) still said that EA and origin were unable to help and to call XBL support (i did they said that they didnt want anything to do with the situation)

i have no time for that kinda service. i never once had an issue with steam.

Not exactly hate, but I don't trust it in the least. Ed: No more than I trust Steam, if that matters. Spyware/adware is Spyware/adware.

This for me (apart from the 200+ games) lol I only have 10 Steam purchased games.

I don't hate Origin though, I just think it's pointless.

Eh, the free market will be free. Why should there only be one major online distribution center? Steam wanted $49.99 for Dirt 3 (got it free with 6870, looked to see) and it can be bought for $12-14 from Amazon.

Steam is the best used car saleman I've ever seen.
