Just found out that Mass Effect 3 will be Origin exclusive and decided to start a list.
Games for which I’ve enjoyed predecessors but will not now play solely because of their connection to the shady digital distribution service Origin:
- Mass Effect 3
- Star Wars: The Old Republic
- Battlefield 3
And as an added FUCK YOU, EA controls the rights to Porsche in video games and has declined to allow Forza to use Porsches in the upcoming Forza 4, in spite of having permitted such in the past. Fuck Porsche too for signing up for that, incidentally. There’s also a longstanding Fuck The NFL for similar, but not being able to play NFL games has probably hurt my interest in football anyway, so how do you like that, fuckos.
