I'm really beginning to like Origin.

In the span of 2 (or 3?) months, I've got 4 free games that have stayed in my library on Origin, with the fourth being Peggle that I just got today. Why all the hate for Origin? I get that it's EA and I agree that EA games often suck, but that doesn't instantly mean the client sucks. I actually have free games on there that I enjoy.

If only I had real incentive to download UPlay. Also, can't wait for GOG Galaxy. It seems like there is finally good competition with Steam.

Same reason there's hate for AMD graphics cards.

I have no issues with origin other than the fact that it would be nice to have everything on Steam and not require a second launcher. Other than that, Origin is just fine to me and in some aspects even better than Steam. I understand why EA/Ubi have their own launchers and it doesn't bother me. Uplay does need a lot of work still to be decent though. Its a very bare bones, feature-less launcher.

Thing is unless its an EA game or a Ubi game, I buy everything on Steam anyway and don't see that changing. Definitely not going to add another with GOG Galaxy. DRM Free isn't really a big selling point for me.

I've gotta admit, I don't understand that either. I'd rather have an Nvidia card when I upgrade soon, but that's just because I've heard quality is better.

Pretty sure Activision is the greediest, seeing as how they make more money and are the biggest publisher in gaming.

Neither of those qualities make a company greedy. Being a large publisher and making lots of money are in no way inherently bad. Those are things companies exist to do.

Really? I think those developers that put crap on steam like Air control are worse than EA.
