I haven't had that issue with Crysis Games yet. I did buy them on steam though. Personally I dont see 1 problem with cracking a game if you legally already bought it. Ive had to do it with Shift 1 cause of this. I have a vanilla copy that is backed up on a drive cause I have mine heavily modded to make it a much better game. I personally dont buy EA games at full price. I wait till they are dirt cheap. I paid $6 for each Shift game, Dead Space games all under $10. I didnt even pay $40 for BF4 digital deluxe Feb 2014.
