I don't want origin to do well for selfish reasons. What if every game manufacture decided they needed their own "steam". Man id have to log in to play angry birds... Then log in to play some BFBC2, then some plants vs zombies.

So now I'm logged into 3 "steams" all updating when they want, refreshing their deals page in the background, lagging me up like crazy. So now... I have to login and log out every time I want to game.

Stupid

Am I lazy? No. Is that convoluted? Yes, very

Funny how Steam does all of that but Origin doesn't need to be running or even installed for you to play games.

If it was a call of duty title, or a title where the post-launch support wasn't existent, I would care about the fact that it was being released on the developers own store. If it's a game like BF3 though where post-launch support is high, providing we don't have to download something we're not going to use for anything else I'm fine with it.

Well, for some reason, I have to keep Origin opened to play Crysis + Crysis Warhead....

Else it just asks me for the DVD to play and I don't know why.

That's weird, it doesn't do it for newer games.
