It isn't so much as to where it comes from but what it requires you to use. EA has more than deserved the consumer mistrust people show them in this thread. The thread is filled with posts explaining their reasons, it's just to start reading if you want to know learn something.

Keep in mind that to a lot of us you paid to install spyware on your own pc.

So who thinks who is stupid is somewhat relative here.

Eh, what? I know a bunch of people complaining about Steam, without the need to know foreign languages. Heck, even this forum has its share of complaints about additional DRM on Steam games, offline mode not working, inability to change account name and Steamworks overall. Thing is: if people doesn't need the features Steam provides then they will complain about the lack of a DRM-free version.

Suggesting that complaints are invalid because you yourself have never experienced them is a fallacy in logic. It's great that you haven't, really, I wouldn't have it any other way. But not all share the same experience, which is why there's even complaints to begin with. The problems with Origin and GFWL is well documented and is but a Google search away if you want to learn more.

Also, an important matter regarding Origin up until this point was that you lost access to all of your singleplayer games if your account was banned on a forum or other part of the service that utilized it. Did hackers use your account to spoof BF3 cheating to show the security issues with Punkbuster? You got banned and lost all access to all of your SP games, DLCs and stuff. Did you get banned by a moderator/admin for breaking the rules on one of the forums tied to your EA account? Sorry, you lost access to all of your games, including the ability to play singleplayer games and DLCs. And the list goes on.

^- That problem was only fixed mere days ago. The reports have been coming in for over a year now of people losing access to their games.

TL;DR: Nothing is perfect nor do everyone share the same experience.

You know in the last months I've asked the same question over and over. "does origin take your data or not?" No one ever said "no". The usual answer is "steam does it too"
Then I have to explain to them that steam provides a optional survey...

On the other hand many people just don't care if they take data or not and quickly acuse people of being criminals for not wanting EA (google etc) looking their pc... That is just wrong, you wouldnt have EA going into your house check your things so why should they have access to your pc.

EA themselves only clarified: "we do not scan your pictures or documents" right, but they do scan software and hardware. That is my conclusion. And since my trust in them is reduced, I'll wait at least until origin is not BETA anymore to check it again.

I want steam to lower the price of ME1 and ME2! ME2 should cost around $20 (not 50). or offer a bundle. its price dropped anywhere else. just not in steam. and not on sale.

I'd wait for $10 price. Though it's my most wanted game now, I'm not going to use Origin and I'm more likely to get it on console a few years from now.

Half? 30$? it's still not a very good deal!

Even if the games come to steam, EA is finding new ways to screw us. They will be adopting the same (always on) DRM from ubisoft, and probably even worse. (just google it)

Hear hear, I would buy this game if it was on steam, as origin is an annoying program.

I noticed datamine talk has been mentioned here and although I'am quite late to the "party" check this WoW players. Blizzard is doing the same thing as Origin... or worse we simple peasants couldnt know... We signed the damned ToC just to play a god damn game...
