What would EA have to do with their Origin client so that you would use it?

For some reason Steam has a cult following, even tho it's not really better than Origin other than "not being EA" for most people.

Origin is perfectly fine.


Selection. Sales. Community. I'm sorry you never payed attention.

I really don't understand how people can think Origin is better then Steam. I don't mind using either but thinking that there equal is odd.

Valve has done a bunch to help PC gaming, while EA could give a rats ass about the community

Nothing. I don't like multiple clients. One is enough.

Allow me to link and launch my Origin library through Steam.

I don't like having my library split across several different services and accounts.

You're comparing having to buy/hook up separate consoles with just running another piece of client software on the same machine....do you really not see the difference here?


while i do see it, don't you see how ridiculous it is to have a client exclusive on an open platform? maybe i don't want to buy it from them? maybe i don't want to have to run 2 clients to run all of my games?

<_< i'm voting with my dollar


It's extraneous, sure, but ultimately it's a few extra clicks and you're in the game. I'd wager there are far more people willing to put up with a few minor inconveniences to have access to certain EA games than people boycotting the game because of said inconvenience.
