And yet there's still no complete package for the Mass Effect series. Even if you buy that trilogy on sale, you're still spending $70+ to buy all the DLC for them cause they never go on sale.

That's not really the reason DAI is not on Steam. Many EA games are still on Steam. The ones that are not are the ones where EA do not want to subject themselves to Valve's TOS which disallow selling DLC via links from within the game, thus bypassing Valve's 30% cut.
Actually, since the GOTY of DAI is a complete bundle, there is a certain chance it might eventually make it to Steam one day.

EA hasn't released a game of theirs on Steam since early 2011, when Dead Space 2, Crysis 2, and Dragon Age 2 came out. They took a stand on the policy you're referring to by pulling Crysis 2 and Dragon Age 2 from Steam upon the release of their DLCs. Then Battlefield 3 was the first "killer app" for Origin later that year. Every EA release since then has been Origin exclusive, whether they involve DLC or not (though let's be frank, I can't think of one that hasn't). Only a few third-party games published by EA have been released on Steam since then, like Kingdoms of Amalur, Alice: Madness Returns, and Bejeweled 3, but even those were years ago.

EA simply does not release on Steam at all anymore. Crysis 2 is the only instance I can think of where a GOTY Edition-like package later made it to Steam, when the base game was not available. Again, years ago, and there have been many releases since then that could have benefited from that treatment. I see little to no reason to expect such a miracle with DA:I.

A friend of mine hated DAI, I actually really enjoyed it. Not a perfect RPG (oh lord, the tactical camera) but it is a very very big game with a massive scope. I probably only went to half the zones before I got to the end, then spent hours just walking around looking at all the stuff, solving puzzles, and killing the optional dragon encounters.

Great music (the tavern songs!), good story, stronghold building far better than in Pillars of Eternity, decent RPG itemization and levelling, and beautiful graphics. There's a meta-quest system that some people hated, but I liked the feeling that I was leading the army and had the ability to send other parties off to do quests to unlock stuff for me.

I'd give it a bit over 90% overall.

Are you sure they're actually EA games, as in games made by studios owned by EA, as opposed to games where EA was just the publisher.

Personally I don't know or care enough to check, but it would be understandable that as a publisher if a studio wanted to have their product on other platforms EA may as well go with it and get something rather than nothing as the studio may go with a different publisher.

Yeah but then they have to pay for the maintenance of Origin. Still, probably comes out to less money in the end

Who knows? EA is weird. For some games they do a GOTY like DAI here while the Mass Effects are still BioWare points games where the DLC has never been bundled with the games or gone on sale.
Their product policies are completely unpredictable. It would not surprise me if the GOTY of DAI goes to Steam at some point.

Reviews were a bit iffy on this one. I think I'll wait for it to drop in price a bit.

Oh, and for it to hit Steam (or - dare to dream - GOG). I hate trying to remember which game-launcher I have to use for a particular game... I wish EA would finally figure that out and not insist on all their games being exclusive to Origin.
