Until that day, Origin will be that program I hide on my PC unless I feel like playing BF3...
Double standards for the win! When has Valve put their games on Origin
? Why should EA put theirs on Steam if they don't feel it's to their advantage?

if you cant win customers with service and dedication the customers wont follow you
How did they do so? Last I saw, they offered no tech support, no refund on glitchy/outright-defective games, no phone support, no live chat support, and require you to login every time to start your games. Origin by comparison has lenient policies offering tech support, refunds+game removal from account in needed cases (yes, personal experience), has phone numbers readily available, has live chat, and does not require you to run Origin for most titles on there.
Sooooooo, what exactly did Valve do other than make one of the most consumer-unfriendly services online ever with Steam by shoehorning Half-Life 2 into it a long time ago?
