Actually, he's tired of EA being seen as the bad guy where Valve is fine. Valve has had microtransactions in TF2 for a long time. They have microtransactions in Portal 2. There haven't been many complaints about either of those. But EA announces they are going to do microtransactions in their games, and it's "pile on EA" time.

You are correct. This world has a knack of only attacking the top company in a segment. Burger King, Wendy's is no better than McDonald's, but McD is the one that is always attacked with lawsuits. Trust me the others have millions to hand over as well!

I won't say I'm the guy that won't buy EA, nor will I swear on the internet I never will again either. I will buy their games, but it is limited simply because they don't make much I want to play. That is the beginning and ending for me.

Every game is bought on its own merits, every DLC on its own value. As said here many times by many people, we have a simple choice of yes/no on every purchase we make. If you see value in a DLC, god bless.

Also the hate for Origin here to me is laughable, the service works fine, it installs reliably, downloads reliably, works reliably. I had a password issue once, via Live Chat in 30 minutes fixed. Steam it takes a day, no live chat. BNet a week, no live chat. EA 30 minutes, I give credit where it's due, they won big here.

Origin is every bit as reliable as Steam. The only downloader / middleware game app that I've had issues with is GFWL, now that one has some real issues, I personally hate it because when it doesn't work you have to hammer your system hard to rid it all and start over and there is no reasonable support for it.

Some just hate having multiple sources for downloads, well it's the PC, this is an open platform. Steam doesn't handle it all nor does it always have the same price. So you have to ask yourself, "Do I have the ability to handle a handful of gaming services?" I guess I can, to me it's clicking an icon, not too bad.
