I'd wonder what strange alternative dimension I've strolled into. That said, I have no qualms about Origin (or UPlay). All these storefronts are just the same and people who whine 'but me want all me games in one list because I'm lazy!!!!!!' just make me shake my head in pity.

1.) I'd lose faith in humanity.
2.) I'd turn into a hardcore pirate.
This has been another (probably) uselessly informative post, by me. Booyah!

EA is in no way bigger than steam

Steam is huge and lord gave is one of the richest men on the planet. Let that sink in. It's more likely that gave would swallow EA

Start backing up my software library and downloading the appropriate means to continue playing it.

I would probably pirate all my games from then on.

I actually can't remember the last EA game I played. I think it might have been Battlefield 2142.
With deeper knowledge and experience, everything becomes more shallow.

I would get a top level, executive job at EA and start skimming from the micro transaction profit pool.

Well if what EA has done to countless other companies they have bought happens to Valve. Then we would see Valve die in 2-3 years and some other company would pick up the slack and release something like Steam.

Nah, EA is bigger EA has a total value of about 7.7 billion, meanwhile Valve is worth about 2.5 billion. If Valve was way bigger then EA wouldn't have even put up an offer to buy Valve, smaller companies don't go around trying to buy bigger ones.

Valuation isn't money in the bank. Since Valve doesn't make it's earnings public, only Valve employees in the know know that kind of thing.
However, Newell estimated that Valve is the most profitable company per head in the USA. That, and volume of steam transactions is about all we have to go on.
