In context: Origin is great...
Still good joke, mate, made my day, again. Thanks pal. Good load of humour is always welcomed. Especially at monday's morning. What would I do without you, friend?
...compared to fucking Steam.
Does it matter how fast origin tech support reply will be if it's still useless?
Does it matter how many free games they give away, if you already paid for all them, and some of them still do not work (awesome support, yay!)?
Does it matter if big lettering yells about 30-days moneyback, if there is small font saying this product is not supporting that feature? And what's the point in that moneyback, if there are purchased games that do not work still and you can't return them, because you bought them before those attention grabbing features were introduced (guess what, no matter what they say, they really didn't wanted third gold poo), and support replied after 15 days at best (moneyback period was 14 days), informing you your moneyback period expired.
Is origin less intrusive when there was le scandale in Germany regarding sniffing EULA? Yeah, they've changed that (EULA), in Germany, but what about rest of the world? Had it stopped being a snitch?
Why origin is great, if it forces you to use language of area you're currently in, and it doesn't even asks whether you know this language or not? They blamed Steam for not allowing them doing business, now they have their own marketplace, and it sucks (two golden poo in row were well deserved). It's your damn place, allow me to buy version I want, you can't point fingers on Steam anymore. They didn't even tried to change that for over 3 years now. I don't mind to pay more, if I really like the game, but they don't give me option to do so.
Simply put, if origin was a vacuum cleaner, all other vacuum cleaner manufacturers would go bankrupt, because nothing sucks like origin. Well, maybe uplay, but it's just basically origin's cheap knockoff. You know, like Smith&Wesson Sigma in comparison with Glock, only worse.
So why Steam is bad? Games - check, multiple languages - check (minus ubisoft, but they like to chew glue, just remember their "fight with piracy", add that they are EA's stooges, and you'll get the picture), ability to gift games to people, at least within same region - check (Bethesda does not allow that, for example, good luck gifting Skyrim to your local friend). Yeah, Steam support require 2-3 weeks to reply to you, moreover, if you're asking help for third-party title, they will respond automatically, prompting you to contact relevant support first. But should it fail, they will reply and will try to help. You know, Steam doesn't have moneyback policy, but when I got problem with one title there and asked Steam for help, they returned me money without me asking for it. And there are even free games too. Not at regular intervals, but hey, free.
So comparing services provided by Steam and origin, I'd say Steam beats origin hands down, blindfolded, up in the waist in cold water, upside down, with dead fish in its mouth. But I'm happy origin works for you. Hope you're happy with it, in context or not. ;)
