Origin is a DRM and download service similar to Steam but worse in every possible way. Gamers loathe Origin because it doesn’t work, and worse, locks them out of games they would really like to play. There’s also the part where a ban on the Electronic Arts forums would result in gamers being locked out their own games, online and offline. EA Origin head David DeMartini admits that he’s aware gamers have a negative opinion of the service, but counters with new features like offering Kickstarter games a place on Origin for free. Yeah, so gamers can be locked out of their Kickstarter games, too. MCV has the story.
