How does Origin stack up to Steam?

#11clowningPosted 12/1/2013 4:55:43 PM just a way to buy games. Like Steam, it's nothing special or magical. I d/l faster from Origin, and Origin is faster than Steam.

Origin is more of a store, though. It does not have all the community that Steam has, if you care about that (I don't). Steam has more games, overall, especially indie games.

There is no reason why you should not have both. Origin sales are sometimes better than Steam's and vice versa.

Origin is nothing more than something I need to play Battlefield 4 and it's good at that.

I get better download speeds on Steam. EA doesn't put their new stuff on Steam, so I would say use both.
