I will not buy any game from any company that has an always online component, DRM or not. After buying a Need for Speed game and the servers were already shutdown and I couldn’t play LAN, no thanks! I only want a optional online component. Origin is a good enough DRM, which I have plenty of games on already.

Always online connection because of multiplayer? Just admit its DRM.

We'll see how long that lasts.
