Steam now carries all of the EA games that EA pulled from their store, as well as all the Ubi games. So I don't see a reason to use either Origin or Uplay.
I generally don't either, but at the same time it's worth checking to see if any game you might be interested in is part of Origin Access. I wanted to try Anthem, but wasn't ready to shell out full price for it, played it for a month, along with trying a few other games I was interested in. Got my fill, decided I didn't want to spend full price on it. Total cost, $20 to play 4 or 5 games as much until I wasn't interested in them anymore.
It was definitely worth it for me, but I wouldn't maintain a subscription with them. I just keep an eye out and if there are a few games I'm interested in but not willing to pull the trigger on at full price, I might drop another $20 with them again to see if they're worth buying.
Did the same with the Xbox game pass for PC which had a $1 trial month, very much worth it to try a few games I was interested in.
I don't know that there are enough Ubisoft games that interest me though outside of the ones I've already bought.
Also, should be pointed out that the $30 yearly is only for the basic Origin Access. The premier that includes their newer big title games is $130 a year, though there is a ton of games still offered in the basic. Way more than ubi seems to offer. Still if there's a game on there you might be interested in, could try it full for 7 days.
