I recently had a conversation with somebody who argued fiercely that Origin was superior to Steam, which seemed strange to me purely because I never hear anybody talking about Origin at all. So strong was his love of Origin, or hatred of Steam, that he proclaimed if it wasn't for his already large library of games on the service he would gladly never use Steam again. He didn't elaborate much on his dislike of Steam other than to repeatedly say that Origin was better. Despite owning a few games on Origin I've never actually used the service and have no basis for comparison, so I decided to kick this one to Giant Bomb.
How many people dig Origin over Steam and Why?
