jush59: Hi, I wanted to buy some games, supposedly DRM-free, but hesitated when I realized they were EA products. I couldn't find anything mentioning Origin until I found the end user license agreement which says:

"[...]An EA/Origin Account, including the acceptance of EA’s online Terms of Service and Privacy Policy [...], the installation of Origin client application [...] (or superceding download management software) as well as acceptance of the Origin (or superceding download management software) End User License agreement, may be required to access the Software.[...]"

Sounds like "anything can happen but you can find out!". Can anybody tell me wheather or not I need Origin to play such a game?
Hi,

You do not need the Origin service to play the games you buy here on GOG :) Those are the standard EA EULAs :)
Thanks! I was a bit worried and I couldn't find any posts concerning this topic. I thought the general problem was NOT reading the EULAs... . So now I just need to convince myself that buying an EA product does not automatically make me a bad person. Sad to see that they bought all those great old games.

Hey jush, this is NONE OF MY BUSINESS but how old are you, because back in the day EA was a nice company. Back when they were putting out the early NFS and NHL games they actually had a heart and a spine. :D

Point being, whenever I get concerned about using their products, and like you I admit that I do, I realize you can't condemn their entire catalog just because of ten years of shit behavior on their part. That would be like holding a grudge against Australia just because of Paul Hogan.

I say let it go, and enjoy! :D

Well, at least those games have a clear and definite legal situation and they can be legally distributed either by us or anyone else that has the distribution rights.

See what happened with No One Lives Forever recently and how that game cannot be distributed in a clear and legal fashion because no one knows who has the proper rights to the franchise.

Gee thanks. :P
I make a sincere heartfelt post and you void it on a technicality.

And people wonder why I never make any serious posts in here. :P

All EA games on GOG I can think of were actually originally published by EA, not "bought" by them (well, with a few exceptions like Lands of Lore 1+2).

I always thought it was because we're all scared of your pending destruction of the human race...
