Also, I am amazed so many people still dislike Origin...
*rolls eyes* I'm amazed there's people who use it. Careful; big brother is watching you.

Also I will probably never buy a game on EA's Origin, I've gladly passed up getting free games on it. For the simple fact that it is EA and I don't consider them trustworthy. I've seen multiple times people getting banned for so much as a forum post and this resulting in them loosing access to their Origin games. People having to reverse charges so they aren't ripped off and also having their Origin account locked.
If I purchase a game I will play it when and where I want and I don't fall for bullshit online "requirements" or "enhancements". I don't even like Steam so imagining the thought of supporting the EA version is not going to happen. I haven't payed EA money for probably close to 10 years and that's not going to change and sure as hell not going to happen while giving them the power to lock me out of my games regardless of why or how.
This. This is what makes Origin the Big brother sham so many despise.
Made a forum post we don't like? Spoke truth about the fucking shit quality of our game? Were you upset about the way we fucked over SimCity? TOO FUCKING BAD NOW YOU CAN'T PLAY ANY OF THE GAMES YOU PAID US FOR! HAHA, HEY MAYBE A POPULAR GAMING WEBSITE WILL GIVE A SHIT ABOUT YOUR PLIGHT; BUT PROBABLY NOT!! HAHA, YOUR PEERS WILL WITCHHUNT YOU! YOU'LL BE POWERLESS! COME TO ORIGIN, THE DIGITAL NETWORK WE NAMED AFTER A COMPANY WE SWALLOWED!
