I am a massive Steam fanboy, but there is nothing wrong with origin. I just leave it in my startup applications, then I open Battlefield through a favorites shortcut to battle log, I literally haven't looked at origin since I installed BF3. It just starts up and remains in the taskbar.

Of course I only use it for BF3, i have a few other games in there, but none that I care to play.

Its EA wanting to grab a slice of the pie, and being...EA about how they do it.
I wouldn't hate Origin if I wasn't forced to use it for my games.
Heck, I hate games that force me to use Steam unless I specifically downloaded the game FROM Steam.

Then MACs (with Apple software) are PC's overpriced and with diferent software.

Yep, that's my definition of "it's not".

EA is the worst thing to ever happen to gaming. Ignoring their others hady business tactics, I despise them for the simple fact that they buy out good design houses, and then milk the **** out of their successful franchise and run what was a good series into the ground. Rinse and repeat. Its their business model, and it disgusts me.
Just wait... you'll see. They are going to pioneer holding back content that should be included in retail titles, and instead release it piece by piece via paid DLC to get that much more money out of you. Ugh.
Screw EA.

This....

People hate Origin because it's not Steam. It's human nature to behave this way, people don't like change or anything that is different. This is why there are so many close minded people in this world who just can't accept.

I dont realy hate origin, hate is a strong word, but i do not like the idea of splitting games between several accounts and EA have done some major flops in the past that makes me weary of trusting anything from that particular publisher. I dont play battlefield and i dont play mass effect so there is no need for me to get an origin account atm.

A Mac is an over priced PC with a different OS, Different Software, and a profit hungry controlling company behind it...wink.gif

i like these arguments.

I like steam, and i kind of have to like Origin at the moment because my Digital Edition of ME3.

while i enjoy steam way more than origin right now, i feel that both are kind of losing my interest fast. aside form all the deals and games that require it, the social networking and multi player aspects of it dishearten me the most. i have only been using steam for a few years, and the social network aspects (recommend to friends/friends who also own this game/friends online, etc) sadden me, because i don't have any friends. all this stuff about Multiplayer emphasis and chatting/ playing with friends makes me sad every time i am online. the people in my supposed friends list on steam are not even enjoying the same games as me, and i wish to go back to simpler times when games were offline and single player.

steam has deals often enough, and origin may have the same in the future, but both need to stop subtly reminding me that to get the best experience from a AAA title, i HAVE to be online with others. i have more fun playing offline and single player.


I just want to be alone.
