Origin Comments

I hope to never install this software

Comment by TastyWheat
about Origin Jun 2013

I haven't installed the software so I'm not rating it or giving it a "review". EA has ruined almost every game franchise it has taken ownership of as well as leading the pack in bad "features" in its games. Moreover, the exclusivity of some titles on its Origin service is absolutely maddening (e.g. Mass Effect 3 is the only game in the series unavailable on Steam).

about Origin and Steam Dec 2012

Poor Steam analog.

  • Not a friendly interface
  • Robbing prices for developing countries, charging 1/12-1/5 of median income for a game, which is like $200-500 for US.
  • Unusable shop
