Yeah, you're right. I apologize. It was a cheap ding, it takes a big person to admit their own bias and mistakes, I should have been more charitable.

What I admitted is that my desire to see Steam become less powerful might be coloring my priorities. I don't have a bias against Steam as far as disliking it or wanting it to fail. As I have said multiple times I buy Steamworks games and prefer Steamworks to any other multiplayer solution right now. I just don't like how big Steam has gotten and how many people only use Steam for gaming purchases.

Perhaps EA selling games only on Origin is actually worse, but I am so focused on my concerns with Steam being a pseudo-monopoly that it's hard to see that.
