Lots of hate for EA and Origin and love for Steam from Gamesradar. Check out their article below.

No Love For Origin - Gamesradar Bashes Origin

It’s an obvious tenet of the field that in the realm of PR, a lot of bullshit is spouted from a lot of mouths. When you have to stay so religiously on-message at all times, despite any and all cases of logical fact at odds with what your message might be, hilarity is bound to ensue. Surreal, desperate, flailing hilarity. It’s a lot like some crazy kind of Whose Line Is It Anyway? style party game, only with added creeping psychosis and an increasingly tenuous grip on reality for the players with every day that passes.

  1. I don’t think Origin’s really better or worse than Steam, or Direct2Drive’s thing, or games for windows live, or Ubi’s thing, or battle.net, or… any of the half dozen games distribution things I already use. They all look at all the games on your hard drive. They all show you ads. They all want to be your main gaming platform. *shrug*

    The space is much bigger than just Origin and Steam. I pick which to get my games from based on who has it, at what price, and who offers extras I want, if I want them.

    The good thing is that they all have sales, so if you keep an eye out and have some patience you can usually get what you want at a good price 🙂

  2. I dislike Origin for two reasons:

    – I don’t like exclusivity. If I can only get a game from a single online store, then I will often refuse to get the digital version, or even not get the game at all.

    – It’s run by EA. I don’t trust EA since they purchased Origin and Bullfrog, and killed almost all game lines from those developers.

    Origin is an original creation of EA, it used to be called the EA Store and the EADM(Electronic Arts Download Manager). 🙂
