How bad is Origin

It's a malware harvester which tries to lure you in with "free" games at the cost of youf personal information.

Yeah.. Wouldn't use origins even if steam went bankrupt.

Origin isn't bad at all. It uses less resources than Steam does

It's steam outputting deceivingly faster download speeds with a collection of EA games available for purchase that almost never go on sale.


They have sales all the time... pretty decent ones too. It's just that there are fewer games than other services.

It's like you are talking out your ass like every other sheep blinding hating EA "cuz EA".

The information they take is which Origin games you have installed. Not even joking.

If one doesn't have any grudges against Steam, one shouldn't have any grudges against Origin either
