My Hitlerish DRM is better than your Hitlerish DRM.


Because DRM = genocide.

Right.

Hitlerish:

(informal) Extremely oppressive. Draconian
(informal) Extremely restrictive


right

So Steam and Origin is Fascist, Extremely oppressive, draconian, extremely restrictive?

I don't think so.

I don't think it's terrible. It's just that... It's not Steam. And I don't want to get my digital games in two different places. So it's a bit of "first-come, first-served" to me. Steam was first, so it took the lead.

Honestly, because I dont have a choice. I have to sign up for Origin. It's either sign up or dong play a game I want. Frankly, I barely use Steam. I dont especially like Steam. It's just another program running in the background that doesnt need to be connected. Oh wait, it has to be connected to the internet to play. So yeah, I guess an, "I dont like it," answer isnt good enough for you.

So in short and tl;dr, I'd say Steam has the better service at the moment, and Origin is simply just "okay".


bold = weasel word, ftw


Just my opinion actually. I legitimately think Valve offers a better client in Steam than EA does with Origin right now.

But we'll see how it goes for another couple of years.


Hey its possible for Origin to surpass steam one day but, its gonna take time. hope you guys have some more changes in the future

A witty reply from Surprise_Cactus. Rather than attempting to insult me, please elaborate on the connection between DRM and the holocaust.

Steam is slow. Origin is slower
No games.
