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.

It's not an idiotic attitude, unless you jump to conclusions like you just did

It is idiotic, and you don't have to jump to any conclusions to realize that, you just have to read what you said:
"They are not essentials of life, or replacements for life experiences."
No game is an essential of life, and no game is a replacement for life experience. Using those two factors as the criteria for "missing out" on a game is just plain stupid.

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.

I wasn't asking you to trust them with your money. I wasn't even suggesting you buy the games. I was suggesting that your comment that you weren't "missing out" on them was incorrect. You used the phrase in such a way as to dismiss them as being not worth playing:
"If that means I never play BF3 or ME3, then so be it. From what I've read, I'm not missing anything worth worrying about. "
I was simply correcting you on that point - the games are worth worrying about. Or, more specifically, worth playing. If you still have objections to Origin, or you are still wary of them after the troubles you went through, fine, those are valid reasons to not want to buy them. But those reasons are fine on their own, dismissing the games as not "worth" it is just wrong. The games themselves are (mostly) great.
