This is becoming a little ridicolous I just purchased battlefield 3 on account of wanting to test out my gpus ( I dont care for the game that much but the graphics are good i must admit).... You go to install your game then you would expect to be able to play right??? WRONG! No now you need to join ORIGIN beacuse for some reason some bored little children have nothing better to do except go around hacking servers so they can be number 1 at online multiplayer! It makes them feel special and makes them a better person as well,Anyway.....Once you join whatever 3rd party is hosting the game then you need to do 50 million updates that take at least 8 hours why??? Can someone please explain why I schould go out and spend my hard earned money then have to wait 8 hours just to be able to play the damm thing! If this is what pc gaming is becoming then in all honesty I dont want to take part in any of it! Iam willing to buy the game and installl it but I dont wanna have to join 50 other random clubs and do tons of updates just to be able to play the game *(this is just out of hand already) You dont know if these companys are hackers themselves wanting to hijack your system or what not but who here agrees with me??? Whatever happend to poping in the disk and just playing your game??? To many loop-holes to go through just to get a few minutes of satisfaction iam sorry but I dont think its worth it!
