I installed it because of the recent Humble Bundle, and I've been itching for a new RPG so I decided to try out Kingdoms of Amalur. Instead of some crappy demo version of the game you get 48 hours with the game to play as much as you want, then your save transfers over if you buy the game. I'm honestly a little surprised.

The aesthetic is pretty cool too.

Does this make me a heretic?

I only use Origin for Crysis 3 and Dead Space 3 (which I also got from bundles) and I really don't have any complaints about it so far.

I haven't found anything wrong with Origin and I've been using it pretty much since its inception.

I don't necessarily think there's anything wrong with Origin, I just don't like the fact I'm forced to use it over Steam because EA hold their games hostage on it.

I'm sure if Origin had come first and Steam was in Origins situation I would think the opposite.

hmm you guys make Origin not sound so bad, lol its online rep is pretty tattered from what I hear. Maybe its just people and their typical hate for EA in general that fuels it.

I have had 0 issues with Origin, and I even enabled beta on it.

I have 12 games on it. It downloads games faster than Steam as well.

I had some connection problems some time ago and i hate the fact that the prices are really bad for us europeans but other than that Origin is ok.

Aside from the omission of backup and restore functionality, I agree. It's no more or less annoying than any other DRM client

The main issue is that it's just not needed, and brings pretty much new to the table. Even Uplay at least has the achievement rewards, but origin is basically steam with far less features and games. Stores competing with similar catalogues for price is great, amazon, greenmangaming help in this regard. And then there's stuff like Gog which at least carve their own real niche (and are drm free) But EA holding it's games to itself on a fairly useless platform servers no real purpose.
