I agree the Origin is horrible. I hated it the moment I installed it for the Battlefield 3 alpha testing lol.
If EA did somehow acquire Valve we would end up with Half-Life 3: Let's try to be a rip off of Modern Warfare 3 >.> or some **** like that.
Speaking of which I want Half-Life 3 to come out! D; or Episode 3.
Whichever they plan to do ><
