Um yes and no, no because as far as I or anyone else is aware Steam does not currently scan or farm my computer for info where as EA has said or maybe not said (I dunno their EULA is moronic to say the least) that they may or may not do it for sure. Well that's the world we live in ain't it. I am willing to put up with more sh*t from the likes of Steam because I have 30 odd games installed through it, for the most part it works and works well, they have at least some degree of reputation when it comes to how their service works and I use it beyond the simple features of it being an indexing system for quick access to my games. Right here right now Origin will be nothing more than another program that I have to run to play just one game. So I am not gonna put up with any where near as much crap from it. Well there you go in my case I have 0 games with Origin (actually don't even have an Origin account) and 30 with Steam.
