ORIGIN DISCUSSION

Welcome to the Origin Discussion topic.  All things related to the Origin gaming site will be in this topic.

Official Origin Store




Old Topic below------------------------------

Origin, the EA alternative to Steam.  Is it any good or worth making an account? 

I guess if you want EA games, then yes.... but my question is mainly for people who have Origin.  Do they have good sales and content like Steam does?

For me Steam wins with the amount of games it has and the excellent sales. Origin has all the EA games you can't buy on Steam.  Steam has a more social function too, while Origin has different features.  They don't have the big sales either, but they do give away a free game each month.

They both do things different and are fine for different things.  The majority of people will tell you Steam is better.

According to this unofficial site, 91.20% prefer Steam over Origin's 8.80% vote.

Feedback is good guys.  Thank you.

Surprised more didn't have opinions, but based on the 91% choosing Steam over Origin, I think that answers that.

Yeah, nothing really good there from EA's Origin.  The Sims 4 was a good price for $9, but still a lot of money... they want $40 for it still, and all their expansions are ridiculously priced at $29.  I will stick with Steam. 

Origin's sale sucks.

Only time you use origin is when you can't play the game on steam.

Well... you could get the Sims 4 cheap if you like those games. ;)  Only $10.  Can you imagine they are still asking $49 for that game regularly?  All the DLC are $39 each!!!!  Are they mad? The small DLC is $15 each!

They are way over priced, but people buy the Sims and they know that.

That is the problem.  The game is cheap and fine, but when they have the DLC cost an absorbent amount of money to unlock features that were in previous games... thats when it gets maddening.

Exactly, thats the problem!  They know that though.  A low entry price will entice people to buy all the things they want.
