Origin Bans No Longer Cover Solo Play

A new Electronic Arts Account Suspension Policy indicates that being forum-banned from EA's Origin service will no longer result in being prevented from playing single-player games (thanks Blend Games). Here's word:

If you find yourself with a disabled account, please note that you can still play EA games in single-player mode. For PC games you will need to enable Origin's offline mode to play games with a disabled account. Go to the settings tab in Origin (the gear icon) and select Go Offline.

If your account has been disabled, please follow the instructions in this article if you wish to appeal the action.

Ok, sure, if you want to take that idiotic attitude. From that perspective, you wouldn't miss anything if you were never to play a single game ever again. Fine, that might be true. But on a game forum, it's rather expected that we (shock!) have people interested in playing games. And from that perspective, BF3 and ME3 are two very good ones. If you like playing games, and you like playing good games, then yes, you are missing out by skipping them.

It's not an idiotic attitude, unless you jump to conclusions like you just did. Missing out on two games from Origin is nothing, and says nothing about how much of a "real" gamer I am.

The last time I bought a Battlefield game from EA, they locked me out of it for 2 years saying that my CD Key was invalid, (Dice finally patched out the DRM after 2 years, but by that time I no longer gave a shit) so forgive me if I don't trust them with my hard earned cash again.

There are literally hundreds of games that have came out in the past 12 months, my gaming hobby will be fine.
