I accepted Origin so I could play ME3 - it's a small nuisance but by no means a dealbreaker. It doesn't really get in my way when I want to play, doesn't increase the number of clicks I need to launch the game, and generally doesn't seem to care if I ignore it. I wouldn't pass on an otherwise great game just because of Origin.

The 'always online' part I find more objectionable. I could give them some credit because they claim they're using it to make a persistent world where cities can influence each other. Two problems with this: 1) I'd wager that EA forced the 'always online' thing, and the persistent world is just Maxis trying to sweeten a bitter pill, and 2) I played SC4 and rarely cared about the ability to link cities, I just wanted to build one huge city. So in practice the feature probably won't be nearly worth the inconvenience of the persistent internet connection needed to implement it.

Uh-uh, that's nice. Now please take your social networking shit and Maxis' rotting corpse elsewhere.
