    Origin has a lot of hate for one reason or another, but now that Origin games are dirt cheap thanks to The Humble Origin Bundle will you install Origin? if not why not?

    On the fence. If I ever feel like playing BF3 I might.
    But I generally get the urge to play BF3, let it download, install, update, play one match, realize it isn't fun, and stop playing.

    You should add the "Maybe" option to this poll.

    Done.

    I installed it for the 3 exclusive Humble deal games (I added the other 5 to Steam). Is Origin really so bad that people refuse to install it even if it allows them to play 3 'big name' games for a few pennies?

    I don't need a second DRM client, I prefer to have everything in one place. Payed 1$ and got 5 steam keys.

    Already had my dose of Sims, and I never played Dead Space, so I'll just play the first one when I'll have some time...

    But I might spend more time downloading Origin, registering, confirming my registration, activating the game, downloading it, than just pirating that game, but without any guilt because I actually own that key for the game...

    Im the only yes vote to date. The hate for EA goes deep. I think this is a shine in the right direction for them.

    I installed it, got the games, then patched Origin to only have access to certain directories B-)

    Yeah, I did, I just set it not to boot automatically and probably won't ever buy anything through it.

    Personally I won't even consider buying the bundle. I do not think they deserve the attention.

    I dragged the bar to make it all go to charity.

    Steam does have an "Add non-steam game" feature for a reason.

    Me too. I suspect we'll not be the only people who do exactly this.
