Why do people here hate Origin?

The only time I use it is to play Sim City or Battlefield, but its decent and it works. It uses a lot less memory than Steam (48MB on Origin 150MB on Steam for me), its slightly faster in starting up and has a cleaner interface. I still prefer Steam, but I can't understand why people who hate it soo much that they won't play a game just because it uses it.

EDIT: Also while they don't have as amazing sales as Steam, they do give the odd free game.

Yea it has DRM and all that stuff but so does Steam I guess.

Misplaced and juvenile sense of standing up against something.

It's more the idea of Origin than the service itself. I don't want to live in a world where every major publisher mandates its own store to purchase their games. It's already inconvenient enough to log into Steam, Uplay, Origin, Battle.net, etc.

If things start getting out of hand I'll quit PC gaming tbh. It's a valid reason as far as I'm concerned.

It's EA, a very good game publisher, and they are jealous because they have never published even a single game.
