EA Aims for Origin to be “Better Version of Steam”
In a recent interview with… I’m sorry. I just can’t.
How about you try being better version of Impulse first guys. Hell, you’re barely better than Games for Windows Live at this point.
I realize PC gamers pretty much universally hated Steam the first few years it was out too, but even those early, glitch versions of Steam that really only served as a patching tool for Half-Life 2 and Counter Strike Source had better functionality than Origin.
Hell, even GOG has a better client than you, and it’s just an optional (hint, hint) download manager with fewer functions than those old “download accelerator” programs from the dial-up days.
You want to be better than Steam? Ok. I want to be the king of Greenland and rule from a golden toilet. Why not? It’s got about the same chance of happening.
