If a game is available on both Steam & Origin, which would you pick?

I am getting the digital version of RCT3 Platinum game and it is available on both Steam & Origin, is there a reason why you'd pick Steam over Origin, or Origin over Steam?

Whichever is cheapest.

Origin is a steaming pile of crap that you should avoid unless it's a game you just have to play. So if it's available else where, that's where you wanna get it.

Steam. Always.

Steam, mainly because of extra features like big picture mode and selling cards that I don't use.

Flip a coin. Doesn't really matter if both sale prices are the same, although Steam may have trading cards you can sell to suckers to recoup cost.
More and more, it feels like I'm doing a really bad impersonation of myself.

Go to both websites.

Check out both programs.

Decide what you like best.

If there's an entry of a game only on Origin I'll most likely pick it up on Origin, ala Dead Space 3 and Mass Effect 3 (though I didn't buy DS1/3, got them with humble bundle and went ahead and redeemed them because I love the series, bought 2 on sale because it's my second favorite game of all time). It just feels more organized that way.

Other than that, it's pretty much all steam all the time, but my backlog is big enough that I can wait for pretty much any game on Steam to go on sale twice before I ran out of games to play.
Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there
