>2003 Steam
>2011 Origin

Can we talk about this? I haven't seen it discussed but I'm sure it has been. Still I would like /v/'s take on it. It's pretty hilarious to me that EA would even attempt compete against Valve's juggernaut but of course they do. How well does it do for EA? Do you have an Origin account? Please discuss.

Competition is good. Anyone with sense no longer completely trusts Valve after the paid mods debacle, the dismantling of TF2 and CS:GO with purchasable skins and items, and Valve's complete inability to be a game company anymore.

I wouldn't want Steam to be the only digital distribution platform out there.

Yes. I had to create an accout to play mass effect 2. Logged on to the cerberus networks after installing ME2 and than never again.

They have great customer service, they have 1 on 1 chat.
They have great deals and give out free games all the time.
Been on steam for 5 years now, service is eh.
Don't see why Orgin could be hated on, other than using LE EA IS BAD meme.

Something to do with spyware, although that might just have been a phresh meme, and it's not like using the internet on any modern PC (including linux) is any less invasive than having Origin.
Other than that, you're right.

At least its better than that ubisoft shitnugget uplay that won't let me play my steam games at all.

The lack of games is what tickles my funny bone. There's surely demand for games, but EA just can't seem to supply them consistently. And relying solely on their own titles is what has kept me from ever messing with it. There just isn't anything they make that I have to play, or if there is I can get it on a console without having to bother with a second service.

I'm pretty new to steam. I've had it for a while but only really started using it lately. I'm aware of dissatisfaction with steam where does it all Steam? Pretend I just come out of a coma.

The little I do know comes from an Anon posting about how steam sales discourage pc development since users only buy games when sales hit and devs might as well just make games for consoles since there they can charge full price. Does Valve not compensate devs for sales?

Also I saw the Galactic Civilization developer speak about how easily negative user reviews cost his company potential sales. And that could influence development decisions - which does seem bad.

Beyond this what is bad about steam?

Yeah, I have an Origin account. Got it for BF3 and then still needed it for TOR and Titanfall. It's not even a bad client, they give out a free game every month which is cool. /v/ wasted their rage on this when the real cancer is and always has been Uplay.
