So what's so bad about Origin?

The company owning it aside, is there anything actually wrong with it? I remember the huge backlash it got when it first came out, but now it seems people are all fine with it. So is there anything legitimately wrong with it?

origin has always been fine. the client lacks a few nice features that steam has, but the support is miles better than steam as well.

I was wondering that, too. I only installed it yesterday, so I could make use of the bundle. It seems to be okay.

People don't want multiple clients for their game libraries.

It's not Steam. That's about it.

I actually like the client, but people will whine and complain because it's put out by EA.
You get it started, and I'll run you over. That's the best plan I can think of.
